Benefits of BDSM

The Benefits of BDSM 

 

 

 

 Nowadays, we have seen our mainstream cultures representing the world of BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission and sadomasochism) as potentially scary, daunting, reckless and dangerous. The likes of Fifty Shades of Grey have correlated kink with childhood trauma. I mean, only until as recent as 2013, if you participated in BDSM you were considered to have a mental health disorder. However, in recent years, we have seen the view on this lifestyle slowly but surely changing. BDSM has finally received the attention it is so deserving of. Yet back in 1956 studies revealed 55% of women and 50% of men enjoyed naughty biting! 

 

In 2013, the ISSM published a psychological study on BDSM lovers. Their direction was to measure the mental health of participants by examining their personality traits such as attachment styles, general health and their reaction to rejection.During this, it was discovered that participants were not mentally damaged but were actually as average as vanilla counterparts. The participants, seemed to be more aware of their own sexual satisfactory requirements but a bit less agreeable. These characteristics go perfectly with the participants wishes to express clear boundaries and expectations. 

 

BDSM participants have also been found to be alot less stressed. They appeared to have the ability to go into a similar meditative state that yoga practicioners experience. 

 

In one particular study, researchers collected saliva samples fom S/D's during sadomasochistic scenes. The D seemed to show a much reduced level of cortisol after the session ended. 

 

I think overall it's safe to conclude, that kink is healthy, fun and safe when practiced correctly.
