Must-know BDSM terms

BDSM is not only about blindfolds, gags, bondage, etc. Yes, these things surround it. But it is also about a beautiful and diverse community that has its rules and terminology. Let us introduce to you 5 terms you definitely should learn on the way to understand BDSM.

anoeses safeword

We guess the first thing you heard in your head was RED. And probably it was the voice of Dakota Johnson. But back to the theme. A safeword is a word or a phrase that you can use during the play, and it will end a scene immediately. You can choose a green-yellow-red system or anything you like. A safeword is obligatory.

anoeses limits

It's something someone doesn't want to do. There are hard and soft limits. A hard limit is an activity you definitely don't want to have during the scene. A soft limit is more negotiable. Maybe you don't want to try something now, but later you can change your mind. You should always discuss and respect them. Otherwise, you're not really practicing BDSM.

Anoeses SSC

Safe, sane, and consensual. It means that every scene, play, or relationship should account for risks, act with a clear mind, and be sure everyone is on board and agrees.

Anoeses rack

Risk-aware consensual kink. This term is focused on risk awareness, and it means that as long as everyone is aware of a danger, the BDSM scene is safe.

Anoeses aftercare

Aftercare. We have already written a little about this term before. Basically, it is a time after play session you dedicate to talk about what had happened. You can return to reality and adequate state of mind, or treat any physical pain that occurred.

Alright, that is it for today. We hope you have learned something new. And if you have a friend or acquaintance who thinks that BDSM equals rape, send him/her this list. After reading it, this person can understand that CONSENT is an inevitable part of BDSM practice.
