This is the second part of a three-part post exploring a model of how BDSM roles and relationships interact. Part 1 looked at how our desires related to D/s (control) and SM (experiences) interact to form our kink identity. This part adds a 3rd dimension and looks at which roles play nicely together.
You can find the others here:
• Pt 1 — Mapping Our Kink Identity: The Relationship Between D/s and SM
• Pt 3 — Adjusting for Sub-optimal Transactions (what if your partner is not your perfect match?)
This three dimensional model of erotic (kink) space comes from work done by Midori in 2006/07. If you prefer to view it as a slideshow, it is available on AugustusSeizeHer’s Fetlife profile.
