BDSM at Xplastic, the definitive guide

BDSM at Xplastic is essential; one of our greatest passions! He is always present in our films, articles and reports. In this post, we explain the fetish universe and gather different contents about BDSM and other fetishes.

What is BDSM?

Despite seeming super literal and obvious, the acronym is a source of doubt and surprises for many people. It can be dissected into pairs of fetishes. “B” and “D” are for bondage and discipline. The “D” can also mean domination, which is accompanied by its “pair”, the “s” of submission (the lowercase letters in this universe designate the fetish of the submissive side). Furthermore, the “S” and the “m” refer to sadism and masochism.

The words that make up the meaning of BDSM help us understand the main filling of this cake that has many — but many — layers. In fact, it is known for being an umbrella term (concepts that encompass many others) and it includes many possibilities and fetishes.

In this text, we will cover several aspects for you to understand this practice shrouded in taboos. As you read, you will find several linked posts on BDSM-related topics at Plastic. So, who knows, maybe you discover some things you like and didn’t even know they were BDSM?

Undoubtedly, there is something in common with all that BDSM stands for: the practices always involve some kind of power play, which takes place between two or more people. In other words, in general terms it means to command and obey; feel or cause pain. 

BDSM History: A Pinch

First of all, it is worth mentioning that the most “famous” part of BDSM is the SM — in Portuguese, the term “sadomasochism” is often used to talk about the subject. Slaps, whips, and gags are what come to mind first when we think of masochism. However, this is only part of BDSM.

The word sadomasochism, according to some versions, comes from the name of the writer Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, known for the erotic literature book The Venus of the Skins. The 1870 work is considered a precursor to BDSM and tells the story of a man who chooses to be enslaved by a woman. 

Thus, the stories about perverted sex started long before Christian Grey, from 50 Shades of Grey, another work that helped a lot to popularize the fetishistic practices. The term sadism has its origins in the Marquis de Sade, a name that causes shivers in many people. He was an 18th-century French writer who mixed-sex and literature and wrote works filled with sexual perversions that would shock many people today. Unlike Masoch’s book, Sade preferred to expose situations without consent, in which victims were kidnapped and held in prison to satisfy the most extreme kinks of rich men. 

fetish concept

The concept of a sexual fetish is super important for us to understand BDSM. Fetishes happen when sexual desire no longer targets traditional sex. Horny starts to be directed to a specific part of the body, to an object, or to an activity that does not necessarily have a sexual nature, such as, for example, the foot fetish. It is the fetish known as podiatry. It is usually done with dominant women in femdom contexts. However, it is possible to practice foot podiatry without being a submissive, that is, without being a BDSM practitioner. Every BDSMer is a fetishist, but not every fetishist is a BDSMer!

As much as in BDSM everything has to be consensual and well-arranged between the parties, for psychology and medicine the practice is considered a sexual preference disorder. It appears in the ICD-10, the International Classification of Diseases manual. As of 2022, when the new ICD-11 takes effect, the term “sadomasochism” will no longer appear in the manual. Despite this, it is still super important to talk to a health professional if your sexual preferences are causing you any discomfort.

Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that it is possible to practice BDSM without having sex. For example, there are “therapeutic” bondage sessions. In these sessions, the person is tied up without taking off their clothes and without having their private parts touched by the other.
