COMMENT:

First of all, we will define what this practice means. BDSM is a sexual activity that involves practices with physical restraints, control over other people, pain… In fact, each letter of this word means bondage, dominance and submission and sadomasochism.

What we have to take into consideration about this practice, is that, instead of focusing on how aggressive and dangerous these practices sound and are, we have to stress that these practices are totally consented.

The difference between sexual harassment and this practice, is that sexual harassment is a non-consented act where people are forced and cannot say not to do it because they have not chosen it or discussed about it. It is true that sexual harassment involves pain and domination, as well as BDSM practice, but people who are involved in this practice are concious of being treated this way and enjoy it.

This is so important when explaining to youth, because it can result in confusion to understand at first. An article that I found interesting was about the explanation of consent using these two themes in school. It is so important to deal with these kinds of themes in schools to be better educated and to explain the difference between what is conscious affirmation and what it is not. It is necessary to inculcate these meanings as soon as possible.

Key words: consent, sexual harassment, BDSM

BDSM (Bondage, Dominance, Sadism and Masochism) is a sexual activity which is played by roles, normally one is dominant and the other is submissive.

This practice is fully consented by both of the ones that are involved, everyone must have the freedom to choose how they enjoy their sexuality but knowing from where it comes. Most of the sub missives are women and most of the dominant are men so obviously we must take a look and know where it comes from.

Feminism affirms that this kind of practices reproduce traditional power roles of male dominant and female submissive. This is why BDSM must be treated very carefully, because it can end in an unequal relationship.

I think that if someone gets excited for being hit, ridiculed and having pain, comes from somewhere, like having a trauma or for having instilled that this roles are the ones that they have to follow because this is how our society works…

In my opinion everyone has to be able to enjoy their sexuality, to enjoy BDSM but always taking care of you and analyzing why do you get exited practicing this and knowing where it comes from. And the most important part is to set limits with your partner and be careful for not reproducing an abusive relationship.
