It's Healthier To Be Into BDSM…

Kinky is the new sane!

Do you like your partner in rubber, tight leather, shiny PVC? Are whips, riding crops, or handcuffs part of your foreplay? Do you like to dominate your lovers, or be submissive in the bedroom?

New research conducted at Tilburg University by Dutch psychologist Andreas Wismeijer has suggested that long held traditional views on BDSM and mental health may in fact be wrong. For many years those with an interest in bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism have been stigmatized as having a higher probability of suffering from mental disorders, an opinion which has always been both contested and resented by the fetish and BDSM communities.

Wismeijer’s research published two weeks ago in the Journal of sexual medicine used over 1300 test subjects ( 902 BDSM enthusiasts and 434 “vanillas”). Subjects were not given, in advance, the full nature of the research but were asked to complete a questionnaire online relating to “human behaviours”. The conclusions from the research indicate that people with a dominant size tend to be better adjusted, whilst those with a sub side are about level with the vanilla respondents.

As for the why? The basic theory is that those people who are happy to experiment, confront their sexuality, and be at ease with it, are more likely to be happier, more relaxed, and less neurotic. So. If you are thinking of a little kinky play this weekend, some bondage, domination or rubber fun …… don’t hesitate, it’s good for your mental health!
