Transcript

  • 1. A Study Shows That Bondage Lovers Are Not Abnormal
  • 2.
    • The result itself is that the individuals who enjoy bondage and discipline are not damaged or dangerous, and might even be happier than those who practise "normal" sex.
    • 3. Two per cent of people regularly partake in sadomasochism and dominance and bondage relationships .
    • 4. They are not doing so in reaction to sexual abuse or because they are deficient in some way.
    • 5. The study was done on the sample of 20,000 people at the University of NSW.
  • 6.
    • Findings support the idea that bondage and discipline and sadomasochism (BDSM) is simply a sexual interest or subculture attractive to a minority.
    • 7. It was more common among gay, lesbian and bisexual people.
    • 8. The participants were more likely to have been more sexually adventurous in other ways.
  • 9.
    • They were no more likely to have been coerced into sexual activity however.
    • 10. Also, they were not significantly more likely to be unhappy or anxious.
    • 11. Men who take part may be happier.
    • 12. Results are showing they score significantly lower on a scale of psychological distress than other men.
  • 13.
    • The research gives no explanation on why this was
    • 14. It suspect it might simply be that they're more in harmony with themselves because they're into something unusual and are comfortable with that.
    • 15. There was also an assumption, mostly among the general public, that people involved in BDSM were sexually deficient in some way.
    • 16. Another assumption is that need particularly strong stimuli such as being beaten or tied up to become aroused.
  • 17.
    • The research showed these are just stereotypes.
    • 18. The main point of the research is to shun these stereotypes.
