A study shows that bondage lovers are not abnormal

  1. 1. A Study Shows That Bondage Lovers Are Not Abnormal
  2. 2. <ul><li>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 &quot;normal&quot; sex.

  14. 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. 15. There was also an assumption, mostly among the general public, that people involved in BDSM were sexually deficient in some way.
  16. 16. Another assumption is that need particularly strong stimuli such as being beaten or tied up to become aroused. </li></ul>
