BDSM: What Is It, Really?!

Updated: Jan 13, 2021


Ever since the notorious book and movie “50 Shades of Grey” made an overwhelming impression in 2011, there have been many ideas that have circulated what women (and men) think about what a BDSM relationship is or should be, although many of them tend to be misconstrued ideas. There is no doubt that this novel turned heads and sparked the imaginations of many who had not previously been exposed to (or in very small doses) of what BDSM actually is and how to partake in a healthy manner.


Of course, over the years and especially more recently we have been seeing an increase in the openness of acceptance of sexual exploration of all kinds. In fact, many kinks and fetishes have been named as “taboo” by traditional society for years, leaving the ideas of what is actually happening solely up to the imagination of many, without ever having any actual personal experience. This can lead to misunderstandings, misconceptions, and incorrect or faulty preconceived notions of what truly happens in these relationships, especially if it is performed safely.
