Safe BDSM Practices

Safety is everything in a relationship and it’s even more important when you’re practicing BDSM. In order to make sure that you’re having a safe interaction with your partner, you need to follow some basic rules of sanitation and boundaries so that you’re able to practice BDSM without harming your health or the health of your partner.

***************************************************
Basic Safety Rules
***************************************************

When you’re interested in being safe during sex, you need to realize that BDSM can be harder on the body than you might realize. While you might enjoy pain mixed with pleasure, this can also cause harm to the body if you’re not careful.

* Be honest – During the creation of a BDSM contract, you need to make sure that you’re always being honest about what you can handle and what you’re willing to do with your partner. Talk about the limits you want to set and then make sure that everyone follows them.
* Communicate – When you’re in the midst of a scene, it might be tempting to ignore the needs of a partner in the interest of having a ‘good’ scene. But you need to communicate if you are feeling too much pain or something seems to be damaging the health of your partner.
* Listen – On the other side, you need to listen to the partner that is saying that something is not right.

***************************************************
Trust and the Unknown Partner
***************************************************

In some BDSM relationships, it might be allowed to have relations with others, but when you’re going into a new scene with an unknown partner, you need to make sure that you trust this person in some fashion. Whether this means your partner comes with you to the scene to make sure that things are handled responsibly or it means that you get together with a person that you will play with and learn more about them before you go into a training session, you need to establish a basic level of trust. And while this seems like common sense, you always need to know the partner with whom you will play. Playing with a stranger can increase your risk of unhealthy results.

***************************************************
STD Prevention
***************************************************

During sex, there is always a chance of STDs, even if the partner seems to be clean or they say they are disease free. To make sure that you are protecting yourself and your partner, you should include these tools in your BDSM dungeon:

* Latex gloves – Note too that there are latex-free options for those who are sensitive or who are allergic to latex.
* Condoms – Having condoms that fit and that are lubricated can help to reduce the transmission of bodily fluids.
* Dental dams – You can use dental dams to create layers between your mouth and other areas of the body, without reducing sensations that are pleasurable.

All of these barrier methods will ensure the smallest risk of transmission of STDs. Whenever you are sharing bodily fluids, you need to make sure that the partner has either been tested recently or you need to create barriers that will prevent the sharing of these fluids. Fluids that can transmit disease include blood, semen, and saliva. To be absolutely safe, have a partner wear latex gloves to keep their hands clean, use condoms for penetration, and always use new condoms and gloves when switching to a new scene in which new fluids may be exchanged.

While sex is never 100% safe, there are plenty of ways to make your BDSM relationship as safe as humanly possible. Whenever you are concerned about your health, it’s better to be safe than to be sorry in the end.

Please remember the only way to be 100% safe is through abstinence. With any form of sex or BDSM play, there is a risk. Even within a monogamous relationship, there is a risk. Don’t take your health and safety lightly. Always apply safe sex and safe BDSM practices in your scenes.
