.BDSM activities and relationships differ from conventional activities and relationships in that they are based on the concept of partners taking on deliberately unequal but complementary roles, in an eroticised context.^ Most, however, tend to have about as many different partners as their sex roles would indicate that they would have: Male homosexuals have more sex with more partners than the heterosexual males, and bisexual females have more sessions with more people than heterosexual females.

.I.G. Frederick's novel Dommemoir, for example, is a fictionalised story of one woman's quest for complete ownership and control of her male slave.^ In our society we are taught that we will meet one other person who will fulfill us or complete us; this is also a common theme in romance novels and films.

[3] .Beyond these basic tenets of eroticism, and of purposefully unequal roles within an activity or an interpersonal relationship, there is almost nothing which universally unites all the disparate subcultures which are grouped under the umbrella term BDSM. Interpersonal relationships which are based on the social conventions of one of the BDSM subcultures, exist in marked contrast with the current Western ideal of such relationships being based on a partnership between equals.^ Dominants have a greater desire for control than versatiles, who in turn have a greater desire for control than submissives, and all these groups have both a high desire for control and a high internal locus of control.

.While the terminology for these unequal roles varies widely within the various BDSM subcultures, Top and Dominant are widely recognized terms for those partner(s) in the relationship or activity which are respectively the physically active or controlling participants, and Bottom and Submissive are widely recognized terms for those partner(s) in the relationship or activity which are respectively the physically receptive or controlled participants.^ Respect recognizes those differences.

.The interaction between Tops and Bottoms, where physical and/or mental control of the Bottom is surrendered to the Top - whether in the context of a short term encounter typically referred to as a scene, or in the context of a longer-term relationship - is sometime known as power exchange.^ Note the weasel word "harm", conflating connotations of physical and mental injury with, in reality and at worst, the discovery of deep sexual incompatibilities in a relationship.

.Some BDSM practitioners prefer a code of behavior that differs from "SSC" and described as "Risk Aware Consensual Kink" (RACK), indicating a preference of a style in which the individual responsibility of the involved parties is emphasized more strongly, with each participant being responsible for his or her own well-being.^ If you survey any arbitrary group of people--all lawyers, all redheads, all Toyota Camry owners, all BDSM participants--you'll find that some people in that group are abuse survivors.

These negotiations concern the interests and fantasies of each partner and establish a framework.[12] This kind of discussion is a typical "unique selling proposition" of BDSM sessions and quite commonplace.[13] .Additionally, safewords are often arranged to provide for an immediate stop of any activity if any participant should so desire.^ Men suffering from priapism often have little or no sexual desire despite their readiness for such activity.

Aspects

The initialism BDSM includes psychological and physiological facets:
  • Bondage & Discipline (B&D)
  • Dominance & Submission (D&S)
  • Sadism & Masochism (or Sadomasochism) (S&M)
.This model for differentiating among these three aspects of BDSM is increasingly used in literature today.^ I went to these meetings three times a month and received permission from the members at each meeting to use anything I learned for this paper.

[2] Nevertheless, it is only an attempt at phenomenological differentiation. .Individual tastes and preferences in the area of sexuality may overlap among these areas, which are discussed separately here.^ They say that these people focus on sex in the discussion and ask questions regarding where they can meet people solely for sexual encounters.

According to Moser, the discovery of BDSM preferences can result in fear of the current non-BDSM relationship's destruction. .This, combined with the fear of discrimination in everyday life, leads in some cases to a double life which can be highly burdensome.^ Some reasons people go to homosexuality are likely based on loneliness, boredom of everyday life and of a feeling that they alone have control of their destiny.

.At the same time, the denial of BDSM preferences can induce stress and dissatisfaction with one's own "vanilla"-lifestyle, feeding the apprehension of finding no partner.^ A partner who hungers after experiences denied to him or her for years is far more likely to stray in this way than a partner who knows she or he can have what they like the next time they swing with their partner.

Moser states that BDSM practitioners having problems finding BDSM partners would probably have problems in finding a non-BDSM partner as well. .The wish to remove BDSM preferences is another possible reason for psychological problems since it is not possible in most cases.^ Overall 50% of cases were medical at root rather than psychological but erectile dysfunction was most likely to be related to medical problems.

Finally, the scientist states that BDSM practitioners seldom commit violent crimes. From his point of view, crimes of BDSM practitioners usually have no connection with the BDSM components existing in their life. .Moser's study comes to the conclusion that there is no scientific evidence, which could give reason to refuse members of this group work- or safety certificates, adoption possibilities, custody or other social rights or privileges.^ Professors Wallbank and Taylor (II. 40) on the other hand say that "in the last trial torture was applied to the old scientist, now 70"; of which there is no evidence, and it seems unlikely.

History

Origins

Tomba della Fustigazione (Flogging Grave), latter sixth century b.c..
Copper engraving, about 1780.
Flagellation scene, illustration to Fanny Hill by Édouard-Henri Avril.
The Leather Pride flag, a symbol of the BDSM and Fetish subculture.
The BDSM Rights Flag, a similar flag inspired by the Leather Pride flag, encompassing all aspects of BDSM.
The historical origins of BDSM are obscure. .During the ninth century BC, ritual flagellations were performed in Artemis Orthia, one of the most important religious areas of ancient Sparta, where the Cult of Orthia, a preolympic religion, was practiced.^ While many religious persons do abstain from masturbation it is still a very common practice by most reports.

In 1981, however, the publication of Coming to Power by lesbian-feminist group Samois led to a greater knowledge and acceptance of BDSM in the lesbian community.[92] They got into conflict with fundamentalist part of the feminist movement which considers BDSM to be the base of misogyny and violent porn.

Etymology

Portrait of Marquis de Sade by Charles-Amédée-Philippe van Loo (1761)
.The terms "Sadism" and "Masochism" are derived from the names of the Marquis de Sade and Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, based on the content of the authors' works.^ Marquis de Beccaria to write the first great work on that line.

In 1843 the Hungarian physician Heinrich Kaan published Psychopathia sexualis ("Psychopathy of Sex"), a writing in which he converts the sin conceptions of Christianity into medical diagnoses. .With his work the originally theological terms "perversion", "aberration" and "deviation" became part of the scientific terminology for the first time.^ They said they worked with the police and it was not the first time they had helped frame cases."

The German psychiatrist Richard von Krafft Ebing introduced the terms "Sadism" and "Masochism" into the medical terminology in his work Neue Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der Psychopathia sexualis ("New research in the area of Psychopathy of Sex") in 1890.[96]
In 1905 Sigmund Freud described "Sadism" and "Masochism" in his Drei Abhandlungen zur Sexualtheorie ("Three papers on Sexualtheory") as diseases developing from an incorrect development of the child psyche and laid the groundwork for the scientific perspective on the subject in the following decades. This lead to the first time use of the compound term Sado-Masochism (German "Sado-Masochismus")) by the Viennese Psychoanalytic Isidor Isaak Sadger in its work Über den sado-masochistischen Komplex ("Regarding the sadomasochistic complex") in 1913.[97]

A light injury is considered generally permissible when the "victim" has consented to it. In cases of threats to bodily well-being, the standard depends on the probability that an injury will actually occur. .If serious injury or even death would be a likely result of a threat being carried out, then even the threat itself is considered punishable.^ USC 18 has a legnthy section on it, and the courts are given no limits to the punishements they mete out (within the limits of it being Constitutional).

Switzerland

The age of consent in Switzerland is 16 years, which also applies for BDSM play. Children (i.e. those under 16) are not subject to punishment for BDSM play as long as the age difference between them is less than three years. .Certain practices, however, require granting consent to light injuries and thus are only allowed for those over 21. Since Articles 135 and 197 of the Swiss Criminal Code were tightened, on 1 April 2002, ownership of "objects or demonstrations [...] which depict sexual acts with violent content" is punishable.^ Article 237, Criminal Procedural Code.

.This law amounts to a general criminalization of sado-masochists, since nearly every sado-masochist will have some kind of media which fulfill these criteria.^ Officialdom has to pretend to be blind to general social knowledge as well as to easily available print and Internet media to maintain these are not sex clubs.
