In particular, I wonder if the BDSM lifestyle represents a Utopian world where historical realities of pain and suffering are converted into fantasies of safe, sane, and consensual pleasure. BDSM stands for a wide range of bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, and sadomasochistic activities. According to a National Surveyonly 2. Contrary to most stereotypes, including the ones perpetuated in Fifty Shades of Grey, science says that most BDSM is bdsm fantasies about fulfilling some pathological need.

Thus, what would attract a few people to being tied up and whipped for pleasure or tens of millions of people to want to read and watch films about it? Fantasy is not just an escape from reality. In other words, sexual fantasy can be a space to work through rigid social bdsm fantasies and contradictions. Based on my own undergraduate research on phone sex in the 90s, most sexual fantasies are based on for social transgression.

Erotic genres often name the dominant social barriers between people. Interracial brings together historically, as well as currently, taboo people of different races, such as black men and white women. Cross-dressers and trans sexual genres challenge gender norms. Gay and lesbian genres deconstruct hetero-normative sexualities. Of course, the basis of these lines shift culturally over time and space. The ancient Greeks accepted sex between young boys and older men. Today, most societies no longer accept it.

BDSM takes the challenging of social norms even further by calling out the underlying power dynamics within social of transgression as well as the boundary between pleasure and pain. The ethos of BDSM is safe, sane, and consensual pleasure from the play of power. Yet, the actual scenarios and artefacts of its practices reflect most often past, but sometimes current, conditions of non-consensual domination and violence.

American BDSM is also similar, but the historical template for master and slave role-playing is based on the slavery of the Antebellum South. Japanese BDSMwith its intricate systems of ties and knots in asanawadraw upon the medieval torture practices of the Sengoku Period C. Perhaps one the reasons why the practitioners of BDSM are in the minority is because it takes a very special group of people to be able to look into the horror of human pain and suffering and replay them as consensual pleasure. The distance in time or in space, which these groups of people have from the painful reality of those experiences, is what allows them to re-imagine power plays of torture and imprisonment as Utopian possibilities.

A article by Elisabeth Sheff and Corie Hammers documents the dearth of the poor and people of colour in studies about BDSM and poly-amorous communities:. This is not to say that Chinese practitioners of Chinakunbang or Japanese practitioners of BDSM are white or that there are no people of colour in the BDSM world, but it means that they most likely have access to additional protections of privilege based on high socio-economic status or other factors. Sheff and Hammers list five reasons why the poor and people of colour are less likely to participate in BDSM and poly-amorous activities:.

At the heart of it for me are issues of identity. As a black Americanmiddle-class, educated, heterosexual woman, Bdsm fantasies identify with the real pain of the historical basis for BDSM scenarios.
