What is the history of BDSM?
BDSM as a practice is widely perceived as having arisen during the nineteenth century, primarily as a response to the official repression of sexuality and the sex drive. With such an obsessive focus on sex, it was only natural that as people considered their own sexual impulses, the need to act on those impulses arose. However since flagellation as a sexual practice was widespread in the Eighteenth century, with depictions of it in the novel Fanny Hill as well as the writings of the Marquis De Sade, it is arguable that the practice really existed prior to the 1800s. Indeed elements of its psychological components have probably always been around, but only with the increase in mass media during the modern age such as the widespread printing of books, did knowledge of the practice go beyond being limited to an individual's private sphere. Certainly though the development of cameras and later film, as well as specialist magazines slowly allowed BDSM to emerge from the shadows as practitioners got to know one another and form groups and societies in what can be seen as BDSM's coming of age.

This is kind of a hard question.. Depends on what kind of meeting this is? Is this a first time meeting between a Dom and a Dub? Is this some sort of a convention? Are you go…ing to a public place or meeting at someones home?. It is a common misconception that the BDSM subculture automatically refers to the Leather and latex lifestyle as well. Whereas many people involved in the BDSM lifestyle, are also involved in the general fetish scene, it is not always a safe assumption.. I met my Dom on the internet several years ago, and I was quite nervous on our first casual meeting. (we had decieded to meet for coffee to see if our attraction went beyond the text/talk relationship we had thus far...) I had never met anyone in person from the Fetish Scene so I went into full panic mode. I ended up wearing a black skirt, and a dress black corset (the Dream Corset from Fredricks of Hollywood in Black if anyone is curious) and a black hooded sweatshirt to coverup with. Needless to say, I was overdress... as he showed up in Khakis and a NOFX Tshirt. heh. So it all depends on what kind of meeting this is.. If you are going to a 'fetish event' the only thing I can recomend is 'sexy'. It doesn't have to look sexy to anyone but you, as long as it makes you feel so! Leather and Lace are always good places to start... but you can take it as far as lates, pleather, chains, and paint. The world is your limit!!
bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism.

Well, you can. Though it won't exactly be legal until you're 18. After doing much research on bdsm, statistics say that most people find out they are into BDSM before they …are 19, so I guess you fall well into the norm. Though being that sexually active at such a young age I would definitely advice against. I say this because I got involved in BDSM at 16, and though I don't regret it, I feel that I was not completely mature enough to deal with all the hard emotional and psychological stuff. There are lots of posers and creeps just trying to take advantage of kids, so watch out. Do thorough research, read alot, maybe join in some forum discussions. Just make sure you know exactly what you're getting into and the risks ( cause there are many). Be safe, and maybe wait before getting too involved, but do what your heart tells you is you.
All sorts of things, depending on what the players are into. Bondage is usually part of the action. Humiliation and various tortures are also common. The underlying idea is wh…at Pat Califia calls a "power exchange" in which two (or more) people who would normally be equals agree that one of them will relinquish power -- authority, decision-making, even physical control -- to another person. Role playing is common: Master/slave, Guard/prisoner, Captor/captive, Teacher/student, Officer/enlisted man (or woman), even Parent/child. It's important to understand that this is an adult game . There are a few underlying rules: usually, participants agree on a signal or set of signals to indicate that a limit has been reached and things need to stop or cool off. There is an implicit understanding that the Top -- the person who has the power -- will respect the bottom's limits, For example, a limit may be "no marks," "no blood," "no fluid exchanges," "no blindfold," etc. The Top should also be able to deal with emergencies: fainting, pulled muscles, panic, etc. A Top should be willing and able to call emergency services in the event of a crisis, and tell the truth about what's been going on so first responders will know what to do.
No. It is just an illusion, it is just an exaggeration. It is just a category of porn available on the net. Things like that are not done by real people in real life.
Well, I have only been in one BDSM club, and I did not see any machines, they had a lot of special made furniture, with all the hook up for easy hook up. Items such as... Cros…s, Frame, Whipping post, benches, swings, swinging tables, stock aid, cages, iron maiden, other special benches, etc etc... Nothing mechanical really. Lots of leather, low lighting, music, and always people watching and listening.
first off, not a game it stands for Bondage, Domination, Sadism and Masochism, and there are a ton of "machines" used in it, everything from rope and bamboo canes to full blow…n harnesses and sex beds
Smart A** Masochist. It is a derogatory term.
ABF = Adult Breast Feeding often part of an ANR (Adult Nursing Relationship)
BBC is not much of a BDSM term.
One, if she tells you, that's easy. But try to pick up on little things, does she show pleasure by moaning? If she likes you enough to make out with you she will probably tell… you what turns her on.
"I love you. I love you too much to keep this secret." There are three possible replies: . "That's disgusting. Our relationship is over." . "I don't understand this, but I… love you. However, I don't want to play those games." . "You're kidding! Me, too!" Sad to say, no relationship survives this sort of secret for long.
There are no statistics on this subject to give you a percentage, but in my personal experience, a majority of the lesbians I have spoken to about the matter have been interes…ted in BDSM.

Hmm,.. well in my "Opinion", i would stop him one of these day's tell him you wan to have a serious talk with him (try not to scare him when saying it) and tell him, that he c…an't hurt you no matter what cuz you love him for everything he does for you and you like it when he shows you how much he loves you... Try to say " I Love it when you beat me down" but like not really saying those words say it in a diffrent way. For Example: "I Love everything you do for me, i love the fact of how you keep me n' shape, how you worry, how you care what i do, and i want you to keep it up don't stop." that's just one Example but i'm sure you can come up with more, so think about it first before you talk and then try to talk it out with him. -Hopefully this helped.
