For kinksters: S&M, D/s or both? Which do you engage in?

solitudinarian solitudinarian
Just curious as to whether people tend to combine the following aspects of BDSM of not.

If you engage in sensation play but not pain, pick S&M.

If pain is used in a D/s context only to assert control, pick D/s.

Dominance and Submission - one individual has control over the other, no pain play involved.

Sadism and Masochism - infliction of pain or humiliation only, neither party has control.

Both.

D/s mostly. I do enjoy spanking and sensation play though.

We don't like pain. It's not something we want to do to each other. Doesn't turn us on.

Both, for sure.

Both, but more into dominance

Both! I have a play partner for Dominance and a play partner for pain. Works for everyone. =)

Both! My sweetie and I do both. If I were to play with someone else, it might end up being just one or the other.

Both. I can easily play with many people, as I'm probably first and foremost a Sadist. However, entering D/s with someone is very personal. It takes a lot for me to enter a D/s relationship with someone, I'm incredibly serious about them.

Mitzuki Mitzuki
Definitely both.

Though I need to be close to someone to be in a D/s situation.

We participate in both. Although I'm the bigger masochist of the bunch we both have switch Sm and Ds tendencies.

Definitely both. It just wouldn't be as fun with only one of them.

I dont influct pain for the sake of pain but as part of enforcing control it's fun.

We are mostly D/s. We do some sensation play, but not all the time. We rarely use pain because I don't like it, but once in awhile we will. It is reserved for when I am being punished, but that doesn't happen very often because I am usually pretty obedient.

Both! I'm a confirmed masochist and sadist, in addition to being into power play.

I like when he is dominant. not too much pain, just little things like spanking, hair pulling, light choking and other small things. I love it!
