BDSM: An introduction

Some have asked me in the past "I've always been curious about BDSM, but it looks pretty intimidating".
BDSM is a wonderful world, if taken with proper care, and proper learning resources; this is a small list to get you started on the road of discovery!

r/bdsmfaq

This subreddit is packed with resources to get you started, answer some serious and important questions, and help you to discover yourself.

I would advise reading about the two articles listed below in the listed order before trying to deep diver into it.

  • FAQ Introduction and Directory: This is where you'll start, I strongly recommend you to follow their entire article list in the given order.
  • Basic Roles and Dynamics in BDSM: This will present to you the most common and dumbed-down roles in BDSM. Overall, if there's one thing you should keep in mind from this article, it is the Dynamics paragraph.

After that, feel free to explore the few other articles listed in the subreddit!

Fetlife Glossary

Fetlife (BDSM-oriented social network) made a pretty nice glossary for words vastly used, which is available here.

Learning resources

Rope bondage / Shibari

Yes, I know. Those are two different domains and passions. But they share a common base knowledge, which is kinda why I grouped them together.
