of sex that include domination, submission and control.

ΒONDAGE: Restricting a partner’s freedom, for example,
with ropes, handcuffs or other means of restraint

exercising control over the submissive partner.
The dominance of the master over the submissive
either during sex or outside of the bedroom,
on a more permanent basis.
SUBMISSION: The submission to the actions and
desires of the dominant ( master )
SADISM AND MASOCHISM :
Pleasure that a submissive can feel (sadism) either from pain (masochism), either physical or
emotional and corresponding pleasure felt by the dominant causing pain to the submissive
These are some of the basic categories of bdsm, different types can include power play, role play, pain play , slavery, candle play, aesthetic deprivation or humiliation.
According to a 2016 study, nearly 47% of women and 60% of men have imagined being dominant in some sexual context.
