BDSM Life Style

The Popularity of BDSM

From the Submissive Guide Newsletter 2/6/10

(Caveat: I am not an expert historian of BDSM is the online community then you could believe that BDSM community or step further than silk blindfolds and light bondage.

Today’s community is filled to the brim with people who only play at it online or those not serious enough about it to take it further than their fantasies. But that’s today. What was BDSM OF YESTERDAY

If you wanted to get into BDSM being played out then was done behind closed doors. It was secret and it was never talked about. Until 1997 the Board for Psychiatric Disorders considered sadomasochism as an illness.

TODAY’S BDSM is accurately and falsely represented in the media which no doubt causes some confusion and bad interpretation of what we do behind closed doors. No matter where you turn there are ‘bondage’ fashions on the runway, light kinky play items in the sex stores and flirty jokes at bachelor(ette) parties.

Munch groups are more open with their presence online and it is no longer invitation only. I’ve seen the purpose of these groups shift from teaching technical skills to teaching acceptance.

Online BDSM scene.

The fantasy is alive and well online. Real time practitioners have to wade through the muck to find the information that will fit their needs. The good thing is that you can find excellent information if you know where to look.

IMPACT OF THE INTERNET

I’ve mentioned it above just a bit but the internet has flooded the scene with good and bad information. It not only provides a breeding ground for false information and fantasy-life but it also brings more novices into the scene.

These novices can safely explore their feelings and curiosities online. From reading personal blogs, checking out reference sites, reading forums and discussion boards and frequenting chat rooms.

You can learn as much as you want from the comfort of your own home and feel relatively safe that your secret desires are just that… secret.

THE FUTURE OF BDSM or the groups that exist all over the world. What is possible is more available books, products and learning materials for those wanting to explore kinky play and relationships.
