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.
Life aspects where BDSM can play a part:
- Authenticity, one of MAsT’s core values
Notably, BDSM is not just about sex. It can be the foundation for a lifestyle.
It can be 24/7.
BDSM can provide useful clues to help you understand yourself. It can and does provide challenges, burdens, and obstacles to overcome, all of which can be opportunities to increase self awareness.
