A little bit of pain never hurt anybody. At least that’s what members of the BDSM community believe. To the point that they make a lifestyle out of it. BDSM has many names, all of which end up amounting to essentially the same thing: power dynamics. Whether you’re talking about bondage, discipline, dominance, sadomasochism, rope play, or submission, S & M is all about receiving or inflicting pleasure, pain, or both.
What used to be a fringe, niche interest in the more extreme kink communities has blown up in the last couple of decades. It is becoming more and more commonplace to see people that have their fetish preferences all laid out and ready to be explored. Thanks to sites like Kink.com and Fet Life, BDSM is more popular and well-known than ever before. People have become, en masse, kink literate. And it’s a beautiful thing. No more do people feel like their desires are taboo, or in need of being closeted. Nowadays, all you have to do is log onto Fet Life and you will be able to interact with millions of other likeminded rope bunnies, doms, submissives, or sadomasochists.
