There are so many benefits to engaging in BDSM play done right, that some people say that S&M might be the new yoga.
The main ones are:* Enhanced communication with your parners
* More self-knowledge
* Increased vitality
* Increased blood flow to the brain
* And many more
The opposite side of that is BDSM that is done incorrectly, unethically or without the proper precautions. People see the 50 shades movies and think all there is to BDSM is to tie someone up and hit them with a flogger.
In reality, there is a lot of responsibility on play partners to set boundaries and determine what is safe play for them.
In order to know what you are getting into, you need to know what your boundaries are.
If you are a newbie and you are coming into this with no experience and no idea what you really like, it is a good idea to look at a kink list or questionnaire
to start with.

Before you embark on your BDSM journey, or even if you have already started but you aren’t sure if you are “doing it right” or taking the right precautions, you should get educated about the risks, the rewards and the main protectionary principles involved.Kink and BDSM can be fun and fulfilling.
