BDSM

Sociologists Bid to Remove Stigma from BDSM

Researcher DJ Williams from Idaho State University, wrote a study in 2017 that was published in the Journal of positive sexuality. In his study it showed that many people don’t consider BDSM as a sexual interaction, but as a means for forming intimate relationships

Dr, Williams and colleagues surveyed 935 BDSM participants thats answered questions about there experiences in BDSM that attributes considered important for leisure activities.

There question was, after looking over the results of the survey, if its not similar to leisure pursuits, then why does in include wording as in “play” and “games”?

They suggest the results show that BDSM could easily be reclassified as a leisure activity due to the similarities in personal skills, creating adventure, and to reduce stress.

There findings show, overwhelmingly that BDSM is similar to people who play golf, swimming , and attending a cultural event.The Researchers feel the reclassification was important because BDSM has been understood and could possible recognized as a “Legitimate” leisure experience , similar to engaging skiing, hiking or painting, it could remove the stigma associated with so-called deviance.

While the researchers are not sold entirely on the BDSM as a leisure activity of a local chest game but they are pro to the removal of unnecessary stigmatization. This study, at least opens more communication on this subject in a bid to remove the stigma surrounding BDSM sexual practice.

My opinion on this, i must be swimming wrong and i don’t know how you golf players feel since I’ve never played golf but i guess you could get kinking with a nine iron what ever that golf club is.

I do appreciate Dr. Williams trying to change the way BDSM is judged, by people that are not openminded. A little research on there part, isn’t going to hurt anyone and will learn something new in the process.

Many people in the BDSM lifestyle are often afraid to discuss how often BDSM is central to their sex life with family, friends and co workers. Some that have come out in there early years or even later years have regretted doing so. They become rejected by there partners for there partner isn’t willing to try and have an open mind to communicate with each other or do research so they can better understand there partners lifestyle. This causes them to suffer in silence from fear of being judged by others.

Ive Mentored people to help them to understand there is nothing wrong about how they feel in there lifestyle. There is nothing to be ashamed of or regret. I tell them to get with like minded people, go to munches, learn and grow in there lifestyle and enjoy there journey.
