Multiple sexual acts involving control and power make up BDSM. Beginning with bondage, there are three main types of BDSM lovers. Sexual action known as "bondage" involves one person's restraint of another. The individual who is restrained must submit to their partner's authority and control because they are entirely at their partner's whim. Domination and submission are explored within the second area of BDSM. The dominating partner (dom) expects the subordinate (sub) to serve them and follow their instructions. The dom often uses punishment as a means of enforcing their authority over the sub. The third component of BDSM, masochism, concentrates on improving sexual pleasure through sensory stimulation. Simple sensory stimuli like ice cubes or vibrating nipple clamps can be used, as well as more sophisticated techniques like electrical stimulators. Masochists use one type of sensory stimulation to amplify another in an effort to balance pleasure and suffering. BDSM Bondage play can show you the sexy fine line between pleasure and agony.
