BDSM

BDSM stands for Bondage, Discipline / Dominance and submission / Sadomasochism. Sometimes the 'SM' part is used separately to refer to Sadism and Masochism rather than Sadomasochism.

Core BDSM

Core BDSM (also referred to as traditional BDSM) is a very specific and codified practice focusing on total power exchange and is different from modern interpretations of BDSM in the kink community. It is considered a life philosophy based on the imbalance of power between people.
