BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, and sadomasochism) is often portrayed as reckless, dangerous, and unhealthy in traditional cultures. A good example is Christian Gray in Fifty Shades of Grey, who is motivated by his childhood abuse to engage in kink behaviour as an adult. Fetishists are frequently depicted in televised crime dramas as bad guys who do bad things. BDSM is framed in this way by a variety of sources, not just the media. In fact, medical professionals regarded participation in fetishism and sadomasochism as a mental disorder prior to the release of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’ fifth edition in 2013.

The Fact That Bisexuality And Homosexuality Are Not New Sexual Practises

People’s views on kinky sex have evolved. BDSM has gotten a lot of attention lately because of books like Fifty Shades of Grey. Pop culture, on the other hand, hasn’t distorted the most recent trends. People have a long history of seeking out risky sexual experiences. According to a Durex Global Sex poll conducted in 2005, 36% of adults admitted to using bondage in some capacity during a sexual relationship. Even in 1956, erotic bites were enjoyed by 50% of men and 55% of women, according to a Kinsey Institute study. While we may not be getting any more kinky sex, we are definitely talking about it more.

Unexpected results have come out of research into the effects of BDSM on the body in the last few years. Researchers have found no evidence that BDSM is harmful, and in fact, they have found some health benefits from it.

Improved Mental Health Is Benefit Number Two.

It was published in 2013 by the International Society of Sexual Medicine a study on the psychological traits of BDSM practitioners. Study participants were asked to compare their attachment styles in relationships, general well-being, and susceptibility to rejection to those of those in the control group to see how well they fared psychologically. According to the findings, kinksters aren’t any worse off psychologically than their vanilla counterparts.

The BDSM sample as a whole was happier and more secure in their personal relationships. More outgoing, more open to new experiences, less anxious, and less sensitive to other people’s perceptions characterised them as more conscientious towards others. It’s interesting to note that they were also more aware of their own sexual needs, but those needs were less pleasurable for them. These traits are intertwined with the ability to express one’s desires and limits clearly.

Almost all of these traits can point to the fact that the BDSM lifestyles have been doing extensive psychological work that is having a positive impact on their mental health. When their work and self-awareness go hand in hand, personal relationships inside and outside of the bedroom improve, which leads to increased happiness for everyone.

Lessening Of Tension

BDSM participants, according to research, experience something similar to meditative yoga practitioners or marathon runners. According to popular belief, reducing our cortisol levels while engaging in these types of activities can improve our health. Among the many health benefits of this is the prevention of high blood pressure, immune system suppression, and insulin resistance. As with BDSM, taking part in it can have the same results.

The altered state of consciousness associated with BDSM has been documented by a number of studies done at Northern Illinois University. During sadomasochistic scenes, saliva samples were collected from submissives and dominants in one study. After the session, cortisol levels in the dominant partner dropped.

The second study examined cognitive function in patients who had undergone painful BDSM sessions. The limbic and prefrontal regions of the brain functioned less well in those who were experiencing pain. Working memory and executive control are both associated with these regions. According to the findings, there was a decrease in blood flow to these regions, causing a change in consciousness. For submissive partners, this state of being is referred to as “subspace,” while for dominants, it is referred to as “topspace” or “flow.” It’s a fun activity for everyone, but it’s also considered by many to be a spiritual one.

Better Interaction With Others

Researchers from Northern Illinois University found that participation in successful sadomasochistic scenes increases feelings of connectedness and intimacy with partners when they studied hormonal changes and couple bonding in BDSM.

Knowing that doing new things instead of the same routine activities with a romantic partner increases intimacy is a given. The reward system in the brains of 53 married couples in their mid-thirties was activated and flooded with dopamine and other beneficial chemicals when they shared new activities. When two people first meet, something similar happens in their brains. When we fall in love for the first time, our bodies release chemicals that make us happy and make us feel butterflies in our stomachs.

However, this study did not specifically include BDSM practises in its exciting and adventurous testing activities. Nevertheless, they are certainly eligible for this classification. Like visiting an amusement park, taking a pottery class, or engaging in an exciting new game with a partner, going to BDSM can instigate similar chemical changes in your brain. Increase your sense of connectedness and overall happiness in your relationship by role-playing or adding other adventurous and innovative stimuli to your bedroom activities. Happily married couples have better physical and mental health than unhappy singles, according to numerous studies.
