It seems easy at first to think you know what role you want to play in BDSM but when you really start to look at the options, it actually becomes much more challenging. Top/bottom, Dom(me)/sub, Switch,  these are only the most familiar roles. There’s pets, owners, ring leaders, Read the rest of this entry

The participants introduce themselves with a quick presentation and we went straight at defining labels and expressions around gender identity and sexual orientation by sharing our perception about them since some participants requested clarifications.

Several ideas were discussed, kind of like a brainstorm, and Read the rest of this entry
