The practice of BDSM — which refers to the sexual categories of Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, and/or Sadism & Masochism — holds the power not only to transform one’s sexual life, but one’s relationship to oneself, significant others, and perhaps, one’s relationship to life itself.
The list of benefits of power exchange in the bedroom are numerous:
While it is certainly not for everyone, for many, exploring BDSM (click here for definition) can be a doorway to a dramatically happier life. And happier individuals create happier relationships, which creates happier communities, which creates a happier world. Everybody wins!
While one can find plenty of BDSM images in our culture, many of our collective assumptions about BDSM are wrong. For example, it’s common to hear that BDSM practitioners are “sick,” (they’re not), or at the very least “not normal,” (they are, fantasies about BDSM more common than not). Because of persistent myths about power exchange in the bedroom, the benefits of the practice can be hidden. This site aims to demystify BDSM by providing objective information on the subject from academic research, studies and articles, as well as the subjective experiences and opinions of those who actually practice it.
