Tools, Toys, and Techniques

This page continues the introduction to basic BDSM terms and concepts. To return to the About BDSM menu, click here.

This page specifically covers the following topics:

There are many fine technique write-ups already on the web on lots of BDSM topics, and those materials are not duplicated here. Please see the Links page for suggested web sites on many other subjects, from asphyxiation to watersports! The Books pages have book reviews and suggestions for books, which in general reflect greater detail and fact-checking than the web when it comes to safety and technique. The Vendors page has a few listings of artisans and distributors of toys, many of which I can recommend in terms of quality, delivery, and service. And the Groups page lists many local groups in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia, by state, city, and region; real life groups are often the very best sources for honest, up-to-date, hands-on information and experience.

For your own protection, please keep in mind that information on the web, including this site, should be treated as introductory, and should not be used as definitive safety guides! For the greatest safety and coverage, consult as many sources as you can get your hands on, from written sources to your private physicians. The more you read and the greater the range and quantity of professional opinions you get, the better you will become at picking the best techniques and methods for yourself and your partners.
