BDSM is an acronym for a broad range of sexual preferences that relate to physical control, usually broken into six components, “bondage and discipline, domination and submission, and sadism and masochism,” according to Ali Hebert and Angela Weaver, professors in the department of psychology at St. Francis Xavier University, writing in the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality.

 

Of course, there’s a reason the term BDSM encompasses so much. Sex and sexuality are complex. But, that is not to say BDSM can be a safe, consensual avenue for exploring the kinks that comprise your unique sexual identity. It absolutely can, and, thanks to an online BDSM test, it is possible to safely learn your tastes.

 

The first version of the BDSM Test launched in 2014 and it is often used by sexologists and sex educators with their clients. The BDSM Test is free and works by asking you the degree to which you agree with certain statements related to your sexual appetite. Statements include, “I want my partner to serve me and address me as a superior” and, “I like to be dominated, especially in the bedroom.” At the end of the test, takers will learn the degree to which BDSM “archetypes” fit their particular desires.

 

Taking the test requires you to do some personal reflection i.e. self-examination, which makes the test worth taking, because learning more about oneself and one’s sexual appetites, can never be a bad thing. The quiz is also good for generating discussion and providing language [for talking to your sexual partner]. It can help people become illuminated on what they don’t know and give them a direction to explore in regards to what turns them on.

 

As with all types of tests that categorise and organise your personality and interests, remember to be flexible and open to the possibility that what does turn you on might not be the same in six or 12 months’ time. People change. Needs change.

 

So remember, this is just a test. It’s not set in stone. There are options, variations. If you test low in an area that interests you, for example, that doesn’t mean that you can’t explore it. Conversely, if you test high in an area that doesn’t interest you, you don’t have to do that kink.

 

Use the test as a tool for an entry point, but not as an end-all and be-all. Have fun. Stay safe.
