RS: So, Let’s Chat #BDSM ^_^


I’m done with tropes. I’m sure there are more and if I find more, I’ll write about them, but it’s time to move on.

I have in mind a new series of posts where I chat about the different aspects of BDSM, relevant because I’m working so hard on ‘Second Base’ (part of the ‘Slippers & Chains‘ series) which centres on a BDSM relationship.

For those who don’t know, BDSM breaks down thuswise:

  • Bondage and discipline (B&D, BD)
  • Dominance and submission( D&S, DS, D/s)
  • Sadism and masochism or sadomasochism (SM, S&M)

Since the explosion that was Fifty Shades (*sigh*) there are plenty of sites giving a run down of ‘what BDSM is’ but I’m going to avoid all of them (though this article is interesting – just try to disregard that it’s from the Daily Mail, okay?).

There are sites I’ve used in the past when researching ‘Slippers & Chains’ and these were active well before anybody had heard of EL James. These are the sites I trust and that I’ll pull my information from. As this series progresses, I’ll link to all my sources so you can have a peep for yourself.

As has been the trend for the past few weeks, I’ll keep my posts short (500 words and below) to allow time for full discussion and chatter. I’ll also update this post with all the titles of subsequent posts as we go, so they can be found in one place.

Yey me, soooo organised! 😉

I may get a couple of guests in to talk about their experiences and/or folk from my friendship circle who are part of the scene and have something they’d like to discuss. The idea is to learn as much as possible because, as much as I think I know on the subject, there is always time and space to learn more. And, of course, if I plan to write more on ‘Slippers & Chains’ then research is a very important part of making my stories and characters as authentic as they can be.

Oh, and if you know anybody who might be interested, or who has something they’d like to share, let me know! I want to hook up with everybody and anybody who has thoughts to share on BDSM and the world around it.

Woo, this is going to be fun! ^_^
