Glossary of Terms

24/7:

Describes a kink relationship where the rules are in effect all day, every day. Can make phone conversations awkward, so yay for texting!

Aftercare:

An important period of downtime following a BDSM scene, during which partners communicate their physical and emotional reactions.

BDSM:

Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism. An umbrella acronym for the kink lifestyle.

Bondage:

Acts involving physical restraint—everything from wrists tied with silk scarves to full-body binding.

Dom/Domme:

The dominant partner in a BDSM scene or relationship, aka the best boss you’ll ever have.

Exhibitionism:

A sexual fetish for being seen, whether you’re performing for a crowd or simply doing things you really want in places you really shouldn’t!

F/F:

A scene or relationship involving two women.

Hard limits:

The absolutely non-negotiable limits of sex play, unique to each person.

Ménage à trois:

A threesome involving any combination of male and/or female players. (The French have a term for everything good!)

Monogamous ménage:

An exclusive relationship involving three people. Standard relationship rules apply—it’s just more difficult to find appropriate Valentine’s Day cards at the local mall.

M/M:

A scene or relationship involving two men.

M/F/F:

A scene or relationship involving one man and two women. Think Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

M/M/F:

A scene or relationship involving two men and one woman. Think Y tu mamá también.

Safe word:

An agreed-upon code word that a sub can use to stop a BDSM scene. Probably best to avoid antidisestablishmentarianism.

Sub:

The submissive partner in a BDSM scenario or relationship, aka the YES! man (or woman).

Soft limits:

A scenario or activity one partner is hesitant to try, but may be willing to experiment with given the right…persuasion.

Training:

A period during which a dom instructs a sub in correct behavior, aka Best. Homework. Ever.

Vanilla:

A term describing a person or sexual scenario outside the BDSM lifestyle. Not adventurous, but still pretty yummy.
