BDSM Terminology Explained (BDSM/Bondage/Spanking)


There are so many terms in BDSM that it can often be confusing so we thought it would be a good idea to explain some terms in a series of articles. As we grow, we will add more articles and expand on the terminology. We ask all our readers to comment below on any terms they would like explained further or to contribute. Please always remember that all play must be safe, sane, and consensual (SSC). Let the BDSM terminology explanations begin!


BDSM


The B and D are for bondage and discipline, the D and S are for domination and submission, and the S and M are for sadism and masochism. All BDSM involves a consensual power exchange, which means a submissive partner consents to letting the dominant power take control through various scenes. The important thing to note is that BDSM often does not include sex in the traditional sense. It can include an exchange of sexual energy or is sensual in nature, but BDSM scenes and activities do not necessarily include penetrative or oral sex at all.


Bondage


Bondage is a form of restraint and can me as simple as tying someone to a bedpost with a scarf or tee-shirt or it can be more extreme using handcuffs or leather cuffs, tying someone to a spanking bench, St. Andrew's Cross using rope or chains. After being restrained other BDSM activities are involved like spanking, flogging, caning, forced orgasms, edging or knife play to mention just a few.


Spanking


Spanking is a common form of impact play typically using a bare hand on a bare bottom. The spanker can receive pleasure by seeing the imprint of their hand on the receiver's skin. This shows ownership or dominance by leaving marks.


We would love to hear anything you have to add to our explanations.
