full form of BDSM should be in boldEdit

Shouldn't full form of BDSM given in the first line of article be put in bold? If this isn't possible, then in the info-box given in the beginning of article on right hand side, the full form of BDSM can be put in bold. Like the word bondage be put in bold.Peoplesecurity (talk) 16:38, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

use of safeword or not at allEdit

I have removed the section that basically states that there could be scenarios where a safeword is to be ignored. This is not the case in established BDSM culture.

Regardless of scenario - this is the very cornerstone of the safeword concept in that it negates consent and conveys a desire to cease further activities. The point being that anything happening after a safeword has been ignored is no longer part of the BDSM culture.

The original editor is possibly referring to "false" safewords - phrases that in common usage imply a desire to stop, but are not the actual safeword(s) agreed by the involved parties. Although I accept that my interpretation there is OR, it is no less so than the original comments which were in any case, unsourced. Chaheel Riens (talk) 14:09, 15 December 2017 (UTC)


Please make BDSM article a Good or a Featured articleEdit

Please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Vital_articles on how to do it. 182.68.12.114 (talk) 10:51, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Someone would have to feel motivated to take on a lot of work in order to do so... AnonMoos (talk) 15:59, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Factual errorEdit

“The term "BDSM" is first recorded in a Usenet posting from 1991, and is interpreted as a combination of the abbreviations B/D (Bondage and Discipline), D/s (Dominance and submission), and S/M (Sadism and Masochism).”

Now “is interpreted” is pretty weasely (by whom?). But the point is that the ORIGINAL meaning, in use for decades, is only the first and the last. It was BD and SM. This should be said. DS was projected or plugged onto the acronym at a much later date. This is what linguists call “popular etymology”. My guess, and it’s only a guess, is that this was around 2000 (so it seems to the young people to have always been that way).

Now this is all I’m going to say about it. It’s not worth any more of my time. My only goal is that the elite few who read talk page histories will know that I took my time to point out this error. deisenbe (talk) 01:09, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Unless you intend to fix and source the error, the elite few don't care. Chaheel Riens (talk) 07:19, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
"Fix and source" is correct, and good luck with that (particularly the "source" part). There's a lengthy discussion at Talk:BDSM/Archive_4#Etymology if you're up for it. As for the quoted statement, it doesn't appear clear in the citation that the original meaning was exclusive of DS as you say. HalJor (talk) 21:01, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
