Researching BDSM

wrecklesswords wrecklesswords
Hello my fellow Edenites!

So, I am doing a project with a friend and she has commissioned me to write an introduction to a photobook about bondage and BDSM for her. I'm not finding sources online that I really trust so I'm coming to a source that I trust.

Mostly, I'm looking for a good history of the culture; when it started, how, popularity change throughout time. I'm writing a basic introduction to the subject and a bit about the history, someone else is handling the relationship side of it because s/he knows a lot more about that than I do.

No, it's not for school. My friend is doing a personal project of a photobook about bondage.

Look up Leatherati and the Leather archives. You will learn a ton about culture. This is not the place for you to learn about the BDSM community given that it is a sex toy shop not geared toward people of that type.

Yeah, this isn't really a place to learn about BDSM. Hm.. I'm not overly sure what to tell you on where to start though. Most of the stuff I learned from actual people, not books.

Agreed. Learning about it from an outside perspective is sub-par to experiencing it firsthand.

Well, really, I was looking for people who DID know where to look. I know this isn't the place to learn about it since it's not really geared toward that culture. Because I knew that I could probably find some people on here with the knowledge that I'm looking for.

Thank you for the help, though! It's definitely a start.

I would say to find a local group to learn from. Go to munches and such, because it's honestly the best way to learn. Some would recommend fetlife.com (I wouldn't anymore, though there are still good people there). They have info and groups and it's free.
