Can someone please tell me...
 
Ok, I am trying to figure out all the abbreviations and lingo and keep up. It is fun and challenging, but I am at a loss. Someone please tell me, what the hell is BDSM, and what is pansexual? And what does it mean for someone to be in a master/slave relationship? Everyone on here seems to just know what all this means, but I do not. Help!:eek: Any and all explanations and stories are welcome. Thank you in advance.....

BDSM - Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/submission, Sadism/masochism

Pansexual to me is someone who is attracted to the person regardless of where they identify in terms of gender.

Master/slave is a dynamic of Dominance & submission that takes it to a deeper level. www.fetlife.com is a good resource for information on that - but be warned, its rather graphic if you're offended easily.

Here is the link to a "sticky" on the New to Polyamory thread that has tons of definitions:

The net is a great resource :)

Just type the terms into your choice of search engines and you'll have enough answers to last a few months.
