With many things being overdone, sex these days has begun to change. People are more apt to explore, constantly looking for new ways to enjoy themselves. The media has helped this trend of evolving sex by heavily promoting BSDM (standing for Bondage, Domination, Submission, and Masochism). This practice may seem alien and violent to some, definitely not something many would consider “normal”. But those who are involved with BDSM are able to find a new sense of freedom, independence, and confidence. Historically, those who were interested in BDSM were considered to have a medical illness. Because of the initial impression of pain, people had a negative response. Even though there were those who weren’t feeling the whips and chains idea of sex, curiosity and the primal instincts of humans took over.
We’ve already told you what BDSM stands for. But let’s break it down a little more so you can kind of understand the appeal a little bit more. The B stands for bondage, which involves one partner tying up the other with something like rope, chains, or other restraints. D stands for domination. This means one partner exaggerates the power they have over the other. Domination has a lot to do with the relationship between a slave and a master. S is for submission and sadism. While dominants enjoy having power over others, subs enjoy feeling powerless. In this role, the sub is usually receiving punishments by the dom. Finally, the M is for masochism. This is closely related to sadism except this is the submissive’s enjoyment of the pain and humiliation during play. It’s these aspects that make BDSM so appealing… The shift of power in roles can be a very pleasurable experience.
Practicing BDSM provides a new sense of meaning and independence. It allows people to take on a different persona than the one that they live every day. Those who get turned on by fantasy play will also love trying out BDSM, as it provides a stage to an ever changing performance. Many couples even reported that their feelings of trust and intimacy were deeper after practicing BDSM. By having to put your safety in the hands of another, the relationship grows much stronger.
BDSM allows people to do things that they wouldn’t normally be able to do in a safe environment. The aspect of role playing is extremely appealing to some. Being able to take on a different persona can be a huge turn on for some. It’s important to be open minded if your partner decides to bring this up to you as something that they’re in to. While it may seem a bit intense at first, the experience is one that is definitely worth having. So don’t knock it until you try it!
