BDSM has a sulphurous reputation, even frightening for some. So we thought it would be good to do a little update on this consensual practice to better understand it and perhaps make you discover it in a new light.
What was still a subculture for a few years is slowly emerging. BDSM (bondage, domination, sado-masochism) seems to be attracting more and more followers.

Our often very structured professional and personal lives can make you want to give up, to let go through sometimes dangerous games. Shivering under a bite, getting impatient with a spanking, discovering the art of bonding or going much further in the eroticization of the game of power presents for some an escape and a feeling of freedom.
