Does your Mom or Dad know?

Do any BDSM'ers here have family that know they're in the lifestyle? How has your relationship been with them knowing?

Pretty sure that mine know. When I moved out it was rather suddenly and I had to leave behind a ton of items such as porn and toys. They have never really approached me or even hinted around to anything over the years, they also ask me absolutely no questions about current relationships so I would say that they are a tad bit uncomfortable with it and would just rather ignore it.

Why would you tell your parents? I don't think that they really need to know the details of their children's sexual preferences. But maybe I am wrong about that.

My entire family knows, I'm incredibly open about my orientation and what I engage in. They have to know, otherwise I would not be able to present or introduce those who serve me as what they are.

Nope, they certainly don't. I suppose I wouldn't be particularly bothered if they did know--I'm certainly not ashamed and don't imagine I'd lie if they actually asked me about it--but since my sex life isn't really relevant to them, I'm comfortable not bringing it up.

No, I keep it private. I don't want to know what goes on in their bedroom, and I'm sure they don't need to know what goes on in mine.

Parent's don't know but my sister dose... it was an interesting story how she found out but that's for another time lol.

Given that she's usually wide awake when I open my packages, yeah, she knows.
I think she suspected it a long time before she ever saw any of my gear though, since I've slipped up a couple times over the years and let a few rather obvious rope marks show.

She's adjusting nicely I suppose, but the whole idea of BDSM still freaks her out a bit.

We haven't 'told' them specifically, but we think my parents know something. If not about the BDSM, at least about the poly.

Heeell no. Though I did tell my younger sister once that I bought nipple clamps, since she was aiding me in hiding my package from EF from my parents (nosy bastards ) so she may have some idea... And I told my older sister that I find beat up guys attractive once when we were drunk at a bar XD

No, my parents and I haven't discussed it. We don't discuss anything about my sex life so it isn't unique to the topic of bdsm.

The most my parents (or rather my mother, who i'm very close with) need to know about my sex life is that i am safe and smart enough to always use protection as well as trust my partner. That's just too awkward of a conversation, for me, to have with either parent as close as we may or may not be.
