Article on BDSM in the Gazette

20 02 2008

the Gazette is apparently a student newspaper in Ontario, Canada. It had an article on fetishes and fetishism, focusing a large part on BDSM.  Thought it was an interesting read.  Wish they had stories like that when I was in school.

“Fetishistic interests fall on a continuum,” psychology professor Guy Grenier explains. For example, cross-dressing fetish can be as simple as a man wearing colourful clothes, or so extensive as to fool sexual partners.

Grenier says BDSM — standing for bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism — is among the most common sexual fetishes. “BDSM brings together themes of power and domination and combining them with sexual interest.”

“BDSM is the forbidden fruit,” a London BDSM community organizer, Dark Angel, known to friends as DA, says. “It’s like the Garden of Eden. The problem with it is, once you have a taste, it’s hard to go back to living without the thrill.”
