VandalismEdit

I've semiprotected this article following recent vandalism. I'd greatly appreciate it if editors watching this article could be particularly vigilant in scrutinizing any edits to this article in the near future. Thanks in advance. -- The Anome (talk) 22:48, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Bdsm does not include "dominant/submissive"Edit

And I have removed this. It's flat-out wrong. The term refered to BD and SM. Bringing in DS was a lot later. deisenbe (talk) 21:43, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

There is a long Etymology section which includes the terms you removed. Your revised statement is of an uncited, historical nature. In the lede, we should state the full, current understanding of the term and save the historical notes for the Etymology section if 1\ there are good references for them, and 2\ if there is consensus for the change (which may be difficult, given the depth of the discussion at Talk:BDSM/Archive_4#Etymology).

Deisenbe -- the earliest mention of "BDSM" in the Google Groups archive is June 19th 1991 (see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/alt.sex.bondage/AecFY02zLBQ/2pzeED3b9l0J ), while already on November 9th 1991 the analysis of BDSM as the "two-letter sequences" "bd/ds/sm" is mentioned (see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!search/bdsm$20bd$20ds$20sm$20group$3Aalt.sex.bondage$20before$3A1992$2F01$2F01/alt.sex.bondage/mLvZZQqKjtk/VKM1XfGikfoJ ). There's no valid evidence that I'm aware of that the term "BDSM" existed or was at all widely known or used before about 1990, so your assertion would appear to be incorrect.

Religious viewsEdit

I'd like to see a section devoted to religious views here, too, such as is the case with the article on homosexuality.--Bishop Morehouse (talk) 21:38, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Not sure how many religious groups have even officially considered the matter, but in one particular case, a Catholic priest told a married couple that it was fine, provided that it was confined within marriage, no lasting harm was done, and no contraception was used...   -- AnonMoos (talk) 03:55, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Good references for article expansionEdit

I just spotted these two good WP:RS references, which look suitable as sources for the article:

and the academic publications they report on:

and this meta-resource, from Brad Sagarin's research group, looks really promising:
