Dominance and submission

As for masochism: Let's face it. If women could not endure and at times select pain, we would never choose to give birth
Americans are probably more educated, informed, and enthusiastic about sex today than we've ever been, and yet we can still sometimes feel closed or uncomfortable expressing our sexuality in certain ways.
There is a big difference between seeing sex on screen, reading about it and doing it. The three are worlds apart, and it is a difficult task for filmmakers to shock or titillate with kinky sex when it's become something almost pedestrian and readily available on your iPhone.
Overheard at dinner this past weekend in a room filled with recent graduates from pricey private schools and the parents who had financed their attendance:
There are plenty of things I like about Fifty Shades of Grey. It's a hot romance novel, which is always good, and it has kinky sex in it, which is even better. But E.L. James fell into the classic stereotype by making Christian Grey the dominant one in the relationship.
There is absolutely no need for you to spit on me while we are having intercourse, and, honestly, the spitting causes more problems than anything else. I don't know what porn you saw this in, but please stop doing it. I don't know why you find it attractive, because I certainly don't.
Some of the most surprising findings were the rate of sadomasochistic fantasies among both men and women, and the significant
Ideally, the way a woman chooses to explore her sexuality should be distinct from the way she exists in any alternate capacity -- idealistically, professionally, socially or otherwise.
In my last piece, Madison was here to dish the details on BDSM basics. That piece focused more on how to connect with sexuality and how to open lines of communication with your partner. This week Madison will get into the heavy-duty stuff!
I have invited Madison to share some excellent tips on how to incorporate BDSM into your sex life. If you crave a bit of Fifty Shades action but don't know how to make those fantasies into realities, Madison has tons of helpful info for you.
One thing about polyamory and non-monogamy that's both a blessing and a curse is that working through feelings and needs becomes an art form. It is not a scientific discovery that everyone has different needs.
Free time can come in so many forms. Occasionally (I would say about once a year), I go on vacations to get away and treat myself. These trips usually only include me and last for as little as eight hours or as long as a week, and I use that time to focus on me.
In retrospect, diving even deeper, my personal view is that even in friendships someone is going to be the more Dominant
If I understand my feminist friends correctly, choice is the primary right that the women's movement worked so hard to gain.
A few weeks ago it reached the 80s for a few days, and a lot of the creemee (soft-serve ice cream) stands opened their doors. It reminded me that not only are my maple creemees with chocolate sprinkles only an arm's length away, but everyone has a different "flavor" sexually.
A few weekends ago I traveled to Providence for a "family reunion." The winter 2012 Fetish Fair Fleamarket is what I call a perfect reunion. One weekend a year, 3,500 members of the kink community gather for three days of workshops and panels.
I guess you could say that if two people communicate, share common bonds and emotions they are in a relationship. However, I don't consider my best friend from childhood to be in a poly relationship with me.
I'm pretty out about being pansexual at church. I am sure some of my closer fellow practitioners have picked up on the poly thing. So am I ready to take the next step and let my kinky flag fly free? I'm not sure there is a choice.
High in the skies of euphoric love, if any red flags pop up, you manage not to see them. Once you fall in love, parts of the brain go dormant -- the parts responsible for wariness, suspicion, discrimination.
