Another Glossary of BDSM Terms

Recently I published a Glossary for BDSM after a poll on my Instagram showed followers were unsure on some of the common BDSM acronyms. Fellow kink blogger, Helen, commented with additional terms prevalent in the BDSM community.

Whilst my original glossary was never meant to be an Ultimate Guide, we’re blogging to educate so what follows is Helen’s more expansive glossary. (Full credit and thanks to her; she’s even written it in my original style – check out her blog if you haven’t already!)

AB/DL – Adult Baby/Diaper Lover: a bunch of big babies, but lovely with it.

Bondage – Can’t talk, I’m a bit tied up.

Breath Play – Because you’ll thank me each time you fill your lungs.

Brat – I’ll do as I’m told, maybe.

Chastity – Because you’re mine. Yep, even *that* part of you.

Collar – Because promise rings are so vanilla.

Collaring – Weddings for kinky people.

Cuckold – I’m not having sex, but my wife is.

Consensual non-consent – Because “no” means “yes” and “pineapple” means “no” in BDSM.

Contract – It’s not legally-binding but at least we’ll both know what the rules are.

Day Collar – Because your boss most likely won’t approve of your sexy leather piece.

Daddy/Mommy – A grown-up for the grown-ups.

Discipline – Kneel on the spot, stay still and wait for me.

Dominant – Do as I say – we both like it.

Dungeon Master – A marshal to oversee the dungeon and kink events, not a Dungeons & Dragons player.

Dynamic – A BDSM relationship, however it might look.

Exhibitionist – Watch me, I like it.

Gorean – A BDSM lifestyle based on a sexy sci-fi story.

Pro Domme/Dominatrix – Sure, I’ll beat you, but expect to pay for the privilege.

Humiliation – Name-calling never felt so good.

Little – Because adulting can be so damn hard sometimes.

Mentor – A guardian to look after you as you begin your kinky journey.

Marking – Just a little something to say that you’re mine. It might be permanent, or it might not.

Medical Play – Ooh, matron! I think I have a fever…

Needle Play – Pins and needles, literally.

Pet Play – Unleash your inner beast.

Primal – Forget words and rules and get back to basics.

Restraints – Collars and cuffs to restrain you however I decide.

Sensation Play – Hot, cold, tickley, prickly…

Session – A period of time when we do wicked things to one another.

Submissive – I’ll let you take charge for a while.

Sub-hunt – A kinky game of hide and seek, nothing at all to do with the navy.

Voyeur – If you put on a show, let me know.

Wax Play – You’ll never look at dinner candles the same again.
