BDSM

These days, it is hard to find someone who doesn't have some idea of what Bondage, Domination, Submission and Masochism (or "BDSM") entails. Ever since Fifty Shades if Grey hit the market, curiosity with BDSM activity has soared. The problem is that a lot of people do not understand the rationale and appeal to it.

What is BDSM?

Bondage Domination Submission and Masochism (or "BDSM"), "denotes a set of erotic preferences; it’s a form of sexual expression (although you can, without trying too hard, find splinter groups who will say it’s not about sex at all) that involve what’s called “power play”, or the taking of complementary roles that set two or more participants at different levels of power"

EL James' bestseller, "Fifty Shades of Grey" introduced elements of this lifestyle to contemporary American society in an appealing and titillating way that made it feel less "weird" or "abnormal." American men and women have since felt less inhibited about experimenting with a host of behaviors and activities. MoreThanSexToys.com carries a full line of bondage accessories whatever your need.

While FSoG depicted the titillating facets of BDSM, it missed what many practitioners describe as a very deep experience of intimacy requiring profound trust between partners. People are generally not inclined to let just anyone tie them up so trust is critical.

FSoG furthermore neglects to appreciate the inverse relationship many BDSM practitioners describe meaning that it is really the submissive who wields the ultimate control. Christian seems to inflict pain for the sake of pain with no underlying explanation.

FSoG is not the only source of BDSM erotica out there. We recommend picking up a copy of The Master of O here to get a more complete and accurate description of a BDSM relationship where the partners are more equal.

But first, a little humor... 

What is the appeal of being tied up?

That differs for everyone. For some, it is an opportunity to release all burdens and responsibility and let someone else make the decisions. This dynamic can allow someone to relinquish control of his/her daily life in order to free themselves of control which they exert over their lives - let go and let someone else.

For others it is the sheer mixture of sex and power play. The point is that this can be a lot of fun if you are into it. MoreThanSexToys.com offers affordable introductory items for those looking to experiment as well as some of the higher end products for the more experienced.
