Posted April 15, Reviewed by Jessica Schrader. Sadomasochism can be considered a type of sexual play, preference, or identity where an individual derives satisfaction from receiving pain, inflicting pain, or both. BDSM is an acronym for "bondage and discipline," "dominance and submission," and "sadism and masochism. Sadomasochism can be difficult for people to understand, and for some it can seem downright scary. For individuals who prefer a more "vanilla" sexual life with no kink, it can seem odd that there are people who want to be whipped, uncomfortably chained to a cross, caned, or otherwise tortured.

Equally as disturbing can be imagining oneself being the person who enjoys doing these things to others. For many people, the practices associated with sadomasochism can bring up strong reactions, one of them commonly being, "That's dangerous! In an article published by ABC News last year, and in other articles from mainstream news sources over the past few years, this seems to be the reaction. The ABC article, entitled, " Love Hurts: Sadomasochism's Dangers ," discusses a year old man who was rushed to the emergency room after losing consciousness in a sex club. Not surprisingly, the article's main message, as expressed by the sex experts they quote in the article, seems to be that people shouldn't get into dangerous sex.

It's true that some sex practices can be dangerous, and that people should always take precaution when experimenting with a new practice. But people can get injured or die from a variety of activities. Even dying during sex isn't uncommon after a certain age.

What makes BDSM injuries and deaths so newsworthy is that they occurred during alternative sex practices that are not widely well understood. The mystery surrounding these practices allows people to be easily frightened, and it can make judgment seem a little more OK. For instance, the dangers associated with BDSM can be greatly reduced by consensually playing with a caring, experienced partner, using safe words , and clearly defining boundaries ahead of time. There are many safety precautions taken by those who engage in BDSM, and nearly none of that information is presented in this article, which makes individuals who are into BDSM practices appear to be universally irresponsible and negligent.

In addition, the article appears to pathologize individuals who prefer BDSM to more normative sex practices, assuming them to be incapable of love. As quoted in the article, Judy Kuriansky, a sex psychologist, says, "There is a triumvirate of guilt , embarrassment , and fear of intimacy for these people It's rare that all of the sudden they can give up on being interested in pain and suddenly capable of being loved. To play with. To love in a way that feels right for me.

So what's dangerous about BDSM? Is BDSM dangerous because it is bad for our health, or because it is non-normative and threatening to traditional views on love? Before deciding, it can be useful to take a look at the other side of the issue, from the perspective of those who enjoy BDSM in their lives. A few websites that explain pro-BDSM views are below.
