favorable psychological characteristics of BDSM practitioners compared with the control group; BDSM practitioners were less neurotic, more extraverted, more open to new experiences, more conscientious, less rejection sensitive, had higher subjective well-being, yet were less agreeable. Comparing the four groups, if differences were observed, BDSM scores were generally more favorably for those with a dominant than a submissive role, with least favorable scores for controls.
Be BDMS is to practice respect, honesty, truth, communication, is to do everything with the maximum safety, sanity and everything needs to be consensual. To be BDSM is to know that you should never humiliate a submissive, or step on her feelings. The rest is just violence. We repudiate violence, be it physical, psychological or moral.
The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you. Tony Robbins From http://foudak.com/anthony-robbins/
