BDSM Is Good For You?

In the age of the internet, we shouldn’t be too surprised when we come across insights into the human condition that sound so counter-intuitive, but turn out to be true. The mere fact we can fact-check what adults and authority figures tell us is a pretty remarkable, and fairly new, concept that we’re still wrapping our heads around. As a result, it makes for some pretty remarkable insights.

Like did you know that BDSM and kinky sex practices might be good for your mental health? No really. The Journal of Sexual Medicine actually did a study on the impact of BDSM on couples and it turns out, there are elements of it that are beneficial. Go figure.

As someone who writes about BDSM and “non-traditional” sex acts, this makes some bit of sense. It takes a certain amount of mental fortitude and personal strength to practice these kinds of acts and get the most benefit out of them. For those who don’t write about this stuff, it may sound wrong on so many levels, but it’s hard to argue with science.

Here’s a video from the Think Tank channel that nicely breaks it down better than I can. In addition, it also gives me some added insight for my next book, “The Big Game.” When it finally comes out, I hope it shows.

  1. Reblogged this on dave94015 and commented:
    some links to older (2013) surveys that suggest people into #kink scored better on mental-health survey

  2. it will take while before the mainstream accepts this… #50Shades didn’t help. The psych community is still divided on the issue.

    • I suspect there will always be some division. Anything involving psychology is rarely an either/or distinction. But I agree. As time goes on, I think the benefits will become more apparent. I hope that some of my books can help with that, especially the one I’m working on now.
