What does BDSM stand for?

It is a code for Bondage, Discipline, Sado-Masochism - BDSM stands for a series of consensual sexual practices that include dominance and submission. 
 

  • Bondage - which means some form of movement restriction like handcuffs, tying someone up and even Shibari. 

  • Discipline - the act of ordering or obeying someone’s orders a sexual play. 

  • Sado-Masochism refers to the act of inflicting (sado) or receiving (maso) pain for sexual enjoyment.

  • BDSM practices can involve just one of these themes or combine them. 

Why BDSM can be great for you
  • BDSM is an amazing tool for sexual empowerment. After all, it encourages people to take ownership of their sexuality, teaches them the importance of consent in sex and pushes individuals to have a great understanding of boundaries - whether for oneself or for others. These skills are not only great to have a better sex life - they can also be useful outside of the bedroom.
     

  • Consensual and ethical BDSM practices revolve around two key concepts: Safewords - A code word people can use to stop the play if they are no longer keen. Secondly, there is aftercare - a connection moment after BDSM play, so people can ground themselves, feel taken care of - especially after a particularly hard session.
