The great breadth and depth of BDSM means that there is the possibility that it can offer clues, guidance or influence in many, if not all, aspects of life. Not everyone wants this, of course. Some people look at BDSM as just a kinky detour on the road to sexual satisfaction, and some people look to it occupying just a small and safe part of their lives. It can, however, be something which people embrace much more holistically. It can be their inspiration for growth, self development, and happiness in many areas of their lives.
