Dark and dangerous or kinky and fun we dispel some of the myths surrounding BDSM.

The first Myth is that this is a rare phenomenon for weird eclectic people.
A study by Durex found that 37% of people surveyed had engaged in some for of bondage or blindfolding.

Second MythThis is relatively new thing popularized by books like ‘fifty shades of grey’
In 1905, Sigmund Freud described “sadism” and “masochism” in his Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality.  Fetish magazines became popular in the 1940’s with advent of pin up girls and started in the gay community after the second world war.

Third MythIt’s all about sadistic and masochistic acts.
BDSM, involves only the role-playing of such acts, with a heavy concern for safety and the prevention of harm.

Forth MythThe dominant partner is the one in control.
BDSM usually consists of a dominant “dom” partner and a submissive “sub” one. Although the dominant would appear to be the one running the show, it is actually doms that perform to please their subs

Fifth Mythyou are either dominant or submissive.
Many in the community identify as being a “switch,” which means they are open to taking on either the dominant or submissive role, depending on their mood or their partner’s preference.

Sixth MythBDSM is all about whips, chains and torture.
Individual preferences vary, from the somewhat tame use of silk scarves and blindfolds, to more extreme pursuits, such as needle play (which involves piercing the body with hypodermic needles)

Seventh MythBDSM is violent.
Mutual consent, trust, and negotiation are hallmarks of the BDSM lifestyle. Most will meet potential partners before “playing together” to discuss personal boundaries, any health conditions they might have, and safe words, to ensure that a “scene” (or sexual encounter) will be both sexually fulfilling and safe. Any use of control or infliction of pain is within the context of fantasy, including the role-playing of nonconsensual sex.

Eighth MythPeople who take part in BDSM are maladjusted or weirdo’s.  
In fact, they have been shown to score higher than vanilla folk on several positive psychological characteristics, including subjective well-being.

Ninth Myth You can tell BDSM people by what they ware.  
Contrary to what you might expect, those who partake in BDSM are usually successful professionals who are educated, work full-time jobs, and have families. Most look like the average person you’d see on the street.
