4 Big Reasons Why So Many People Enjoy BDSM

A recent study on BDSM practitioners shows about 50 percent of American people enjoy some kind of kink or rough sexual fantasy, and about 36 percent admit to using bondage toys such as blindfold during sex. Why do so many people crave BDSM? There are 4 big reasons why so many people are fascinated by BDSM!

Sex Fun

Over time, even the most vibrant sex will become boring, predictable, even formulaic. More and more couples choose bondage to break the routine, using bondage toys to spice things up and bring back some of the sparks. If you want to bring back a sense of excitement and thrill to stale love life, BDSM will not let you be disappointed!

Escape From Reality

Lots of people enjoy the complete disconnect with reality and escape from the stresses of life, responsibility or guilt. It feels like a new, exciting, totally different world with rules and norms. Many people move to an almost trance-like state and forget their real-world responsibility and guilt.

Power

Many people crave power more than money. It’s not surprising that escaping into a world where you can have power over another person and even using their bodies for sexual gratification with impunity is a turn on for many. The power can be particularly attractive to those who may not be in the position of power in real life, bondage gives them an opportunity to be in total control.

Security

You may wonder why people have the desire to be dominated, some psychologists have said that the reason can be traced back to childhood when children are rewarded for being good. It’s common for those who enjoy being subs to please another person even to hurt themselves.
