How do we Identify?

Also see Guy Baldwin's discussion of the three major themes (Dominance & Submision, Sadism & Masochism, Aggression & Pasivity) that contribute to our identity in the lifestyle, found in his book "Ties That Bind"


We usually choose from some of these archetypes:

  • Kinky (both all encompassing and at the same time not)

  • Dom / Sub, Switch

  • Top / Bottom, Switch

  • Master / Slave or Owner / Property

  • Sadist / Masochist, Sadomasochist,

  • Het, Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transsexual

  • Littles - Daddy / Mommy – Little Girl / Little Boy

  • Daddy / girl or boy - but Not Littles

  • Animals / Trainers – Pony, pups, kittens, etc


We further identify by what we do from all the associated fetishes such as:

  • BD – Bondage and Discipline
  • DS - Domance, Submission
  • SM – Sadism, Masochism

  • Exhibitionism

  • Leather

  • Rope

  • Steel Restraints

  • Cages

  • Needles

  • Rubber

  • Latex

  • Uniforms

  • Poly

  • Cigars

  • Maids

  • Foot Fetish

  • Piss

  • Scat

** A 1990 Kinsey Institute report stated that 5% to 10% of Americans occasionally engage in sexual activities related to BDSM.
