Stupid newbie BDSM question

Supervixen Supervixen
...but are gentler items that don't cause that delicious pain considered a part of the BDSM world, like feather ticklers? I ask because you often see them used to enhance sensation (duh), used on tied up partners, and I just got the mini top crop system, and the packaging shows a feather tickler top that you can use interchangeably with the "slapper" part of the crop. Plus, there are all the crops that have feather ends and are marketing as "naughty and nice" type toys...so would they be considered part of the milder aspects of the BDSM world, just another toy, or something that you typically only find in "light BDSM" kits?

I don't personally consider feather ticklers BDSM. I suppose some people may consider it BDSM-light. If someone really, really hates to be tickled it could play a part that way, too.

Depends on how you use it. They can be used as sensory play, especially when combined with blindfolds. It's not a dumb question, it could go either way

I'd consider it a part of sensation play.

I don't think it's a stupid question, either, and I'll throw my hat into the "depends on the use" ring.
For someone who hates being tickled, feathers could be much worse then a crop!

Oh, and also BDSM covers quite a bit of territory. Some people are all about bondage and D/s, but not into pain at all.
