What is BDSM?

BDSM stands for the following: Bondage and Discipline (BD), Domination and Submission (DS), Sadism and Masochism (SM). These subcultures or sexual practices include consensual erotic exchanges between people based on domination and submission, restraint, and other forms of sexual interaction, such as role-playing, edging, humiliation and financial domination.

Bondage & Discipline

Bondage and discipline is the practice of physical restriction through different methods such as shibari, suspension, chastity bondage and sensory deprivation, etc. Role-playing that includes submission, discipline, punishment, and obedience training is also a part of bondage and discipline.

Sadism & Masochism

Sadomasochism is a practice of deriving sexual pleasure from inflicting (sadism) or receiving pain (masochism). Consensual dominance, restraint, humiliation, impact play, needle play and electrical play, are all examples of Sadomasochism.

Submission & Domination

Domination and Submission is consent to erotic customs, rituals and behavior, or a lifestyle, involving a submissive and a dominant partner. Typically this is a relationship with inequality between its roles and is often exploder through role-play, obedience training, and feminization.

BDSM Culture

BDSM defines a number of subcultures which consensually participate in erotic and sensual acts or behaviors in which an individual either administers or receives physical or psychological pain and/or pleasure. Activities include spanking, flogging, electrical play, shibari, edging, financial domination and role-play.

BDSM Positioning

Those who participant in BDSM culture often identify as different roles, depending on their preference and relationship needs, Doms, tops and uppers all take a dominant role in a relationship, while subs, bottoms or lowers take a submissive or subordinate role in a relationship. A switch is different in that they can switch between both dominant and submissive roles, opting to either dominate a partner or submit to them.


A fetish is a sexual desire or arousal in response to something that isn't typically erotic. Objects or items of clothing in silk stockings, high heel shoes, lace panties or latex, have a fetish following, and so do human body parts like feet, legs and hands to name a few.


Kink describes unconventional sexual fantasies, behaviors and/or practices. There is a spectrum of kink, which overlaps with the BDSM and fetish subcultures. Kinky behaviors include creating erotic fan-art, rope-play, cybersex and temperature play.


Often misrepresented and misunderstood, BDSM, fetish, and kink are a form of healthy erotic self-expression, especially when all parties comply with SSC in all interactions: Safe, Sane and Consensual. The world of BDSM is an exciting new adventure for both singles and couples. The practices involved in BDSM help build complete trust in partners, and they can help your realize your deepest fantasies. So, sign up with a partner and add some spice to your routine, or try something new with someone new. Don't be shy!
