There is a reason why the movie 50 shades of grey was so popular across the world – I mean, if you have never watched it, I would seriously question where you’ve been in the last few years. So, this movie, whether you liked it or not, has had a massive effect of BDSM among sexual partners. What’s more, the sale of bondage restraints skyrocketed during this period. There was a surge in demand for products like the handicuffs, kegel balls as well as all the other products from 50 shades of grey, to the point where suppliers were struggling to the demand. This movie sparked global curiosity in terms of BDSM.

BDSM

There was a lot of untruths and misconceptions about BDSM before the release of this movie. What people didn’t know – something that was brought to right by this movie – is that BDSM as well as kinky sex is not only a portal to sexual experimentation and exploration which navigates away from the normal sexual activities, but it also leads to numerous mental and physical health benefits.

Here, I have listed 6 benefits of BDSM to couples in relationships. They include;

  • BDSM improves communication amongst partners – you and I both that there is nothing difficult and more daunting in a relationship like communication. The fact that we were brought up to think that sex is a private act, the discussion about the act itself eschewed in favor of meaningless conversations. However, as BDSM is all about negotiation and consent, couples find themselves having open and honest communication about sex. Couples who engage in BDSM finds it easier to talk about sex than the ones who don’t. so, by discussing their feelings and desires in an open fashion, communication is boosted among the couples who engage in BDSM.
  • BDSM increases intimacy among couples – truth be told, intimacy and sexual activity are two completely different things. Intimacy is all about emotional connection between couples whereas sexual activity is all about the act itself where emotions may not be necessarily present. As BDSM is all about being emotionally available for your partner, where couples needs to trust each other, intimacy is enhanced.
  • BDSM encourages fidelity – the discussion about the desires, sexual interest and a host of other things while preparing yourselves for sex increases the sense of intimacy and levels of communication among couples, which in turn brings honesty and openness in relationships. So since the individuals are super close, fidelity wins.
  • BDSM improves mental health – like I mentioned earlier, the notion of consent in bondage sex is paramount, and by having conversations with your partner not only improves communication between the two of you, but it also gives one partner a profound insight into the other partners mind. Having these discussions helps the partners to be more open mindful, more grounded and secure within their relationships which creates a better sense of well-being, which in turn improves their state of mind.

So, in conclusion, BDSM is much more beneficial than we tend to assume, and maybe it’s time you and your partner tried it.
