Myth: Real subs don’t have safewords

FACT: If a sub is new to BDSM or coming into a new relationship, it is a huge red flag if they say they don’t have safewords.  Safewords build trust and bring meaning into the relationship.  Be comfortable using them and you will experience greater pleasure.

Myth: BDSM is always sexual

FACT: During scenes it is not uncommon for there to be no sexual contact with the other person.  Also many find gratification in the nonsexual aspects of rituals and ageplay.

Myth: Ageplayers are Pedophiles

FACT: Pedophillia is having sexual feelings towards children, and a sub is a consenting adult.  A DaddyDom wants to be with HIS little girl, not little girls in general.

Myth: A person who is dominant or submissive in life will prefer that role in BDSM

FACT:  People who are dominant in life will sometimes take on a submissive role in the bedroom, and vice versa.  It’s normal to want a break from being how you are at work or in your day to day relationships.

Myth: People who practice BDSM have multiple partners

FACT:  People who practice BDSM can be monogamous, polyamorous, or whatever they want to be. Not everyone who’s interested in a kinky lifestyle has multiple sexual or relationship partners. Many are looking for a long-term relationship, or just want to play with their current partner.

Myth: Switches are usually bisexual

FACT:  Switches can be straight, gay, or bi. Just because a person likes switching between Dominant and submissive roles, doesn’t mean they like switching their sexual orientation.
