Scientists are announcing something we’ve known all along: that BDSM isn’t just about sex. Science!
Folks in the fetish community were excited last year when a study showed BDSM should not be classified as a mental illness.
Now a new study is digging up some facts we’ve known all along: That BDSM activities can cause an altered state of consciousness (they call it “flow,” we call it subspace).
These findings, they say, “hint that sadomasochism isn’t entirely about sex.”
Who needs a hint when it’s what we’ve been saying all along?
Oh well — it’s good to see BDSM getting some serious study for once.
