Name of a lifestyle shared by many people. The word BDSM is a combination of 3 acronyms, BD for Bondage Discipline, DS for Domination and Submission and SM for Sado Masochistic. Considered either like a grave deviance or a and healthy sexual game/orientation by the medical institutions, people who share this lifestyle believe in having a relationship where one of the people by mutually agreed upon conscent is in a position of power/domination (DS) often by using means of bondage discipline (BD) and Sado masochistic (SM) over the other person in this relationship. This relationship could be for a brief moment (a play) or for a longer period of time (permanent relationship).

To know more about BDSM, we have an article at:What Is BDSM?


Beating (Being Beaten):

In the BDSM context, it is a general term for S&M play. It could be "hard" where the "beating" brings lots of pain or it could be "soft" where the "beating" is more about a fetish or a role play where the context is more important.


Biting (Being Bitten):

S&M play where the Dominant, using his(her) teeth is bitting part of the body of the submissive.
