bdsm

As they say that information is power, consider that you can stay informed on those topics that open a world of possibilities and perspectives on the ways of living and manifesting your sexuality.

For this reason, today we want to talk to you about BDSM, a set of sexual practices and erotic fantasies, whose initials mean: Bondage; Discipline and Domination; Submission and Sadism; and Masochism, which are generally related to each other and linked to what are called unconventional or alternative sexualities.

Now we are going to try to explain in a simple way what each term means so that you keep it in mind:

Bondage:

It refers to erotic practices that establish asymmetrical power roles , such as: master-slave, boss-employee, teacher-student, policeman-detainee, etc. In practice, this expression is related to ties and restrictions for erotic purposes. The word comes from an English term referring to certain links that are established in certain relationships of subordination and to the ties that had to do with restrictive ties that united masters and slaves, or feudal lords and vassals. It is usually associated with rope ties or other restraints used by participants in the sexual experience.

Discipline:

It is a term that refers to erotic practices related to rules , punishments, training, behavior protocols, postures depending on the circumstances, etc.

Domination:

It refers to the erotic practices in which a person adopts a dominant role to act , according to his will and his desire on another or other people who adopt a submissive role. The person in the dominant role commands and disposes. It is always a domination subject to consensus and the limits established by the person who agrees to be dominated. The key to "BDSM" is that it rejects any practice of domination, however minimal, that does not have the consent of the dominated person.

Submission:

In this case, a person adopts a submissive role in which he remains under the will of another or other people who adopt a dominant role. It is the complementary situation of domination, which is why it is often referred to as "D/S" relationships. The person in the submissive role obeys or allows his body to be acted on voluntarily, within limits previously established and accepted by the submissive.

Sadism:

It is a term that in this context is used to refer to erotic practices in which a person voluntarily obtains pleasure by causing pain , humiliation or discomfort to another person who accepts that situation. And they cannot go beyond the limits established by the person receiving the pain, humiliation or discomfort, and which can be stopped at any time. The person who adopts the sadistic role, takes care of the situation in order to avoid any harm. It is an erotic practice that has no similarity with criminal sadism.

Masochism:

It is the term used when someone voluntarily obtains pleasure by experiencing pain , humiliation or discomfort, from another person who accepts that situation. These are always voluntary practices that cannot go beyond the limits established by the person receiving the pain, humiliation or discomfort, and that can be stopped at any time.

With these practices, couples seek to focus on obtaining sensations of pleasure, empowerment, and control, although there are activities that specifically require pain as a means of sensation.

Learn the essentials if you decide to do it:

If you are interested in trying this type of practice and it is not a problem for you or your partner , BDSM can represent a new way of enjoying yourself, helping to break the monotony and encouraging creativity . But before doing it for the first time, it is important that you take into account the following recommendations:

It's totally voluntary!

The first thing you should know is that, as an erotic practice, "BDSM" always involves the consensus of the participants and is totally different from criminal sadism.

Find out! 

Before judging anyone who decides to live under the parameters of BDSM, it is key that you can document and advise yourself on the subject. You must be very careful, since performing these types of practices without proper knowledge of what you wish to experience can lead you to cause harm to your partner or yourself.

Speak clearly and openly!

It is essential that before starting they can speak clearly about what they want to experience and reach agreements with your partner, putting on the table the limits of the experience and the ways of communicating once they start playing the game.

Fun or Pathology?: Pay attention to the alarms!

Although there is a very fine line, it must be taken into account that healthy people only do it for fun as a hobby without becoming obsessed. It is important to differentiate it, because one thing is a disorder and the other is rewarding sexual behavior. We are talking about a disorder if instead of enjoying sex you feel the need at all costs to include these games and you do not feel pleasure if you do not resort to any of these practices.
