Term Main definition
BDSM
BDSM is a variety of erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other interpersonal dynamics. BDSM is an acronym of "Bondage Discipline", "Dominance and submission", "Sadomasochism and Masochism". Given the wide range of activities, some of which may be engaged in by people not considering themselves as practicing BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent on self-identification and shared experience. Interest in BDSM can range from one-time experimentation to a lifestyle of kink.
