    It can be used, I've used it as a way to deal with my past abuse.
    It can even work if the person is a submissive, because nothing is being taken (no matter how BDSM looks) the sub is giving themselves to the dominant one freely.
    Just beware of unresolved anger and fear no matter what your role is.

    I wouldn't doubt that many people are drawn into the BDSM world because of some form of sexual abuse. I think of it this way, when you have lived that experience it leaves an imprint on you and so to live a similar type of experience in a controlled environment, at your choice, certainly can help. If gives you the sense of control that you did not have at that time, the ability to say, 'No. Stop' and it will stop. Take it slowly though ... because reliving that type of event even with someone you trust, even when you have the ability to stop it at any time, can and most likely will trigger a reaction in you.

    Yeah, I think it probably can have some value. However, it's not a substitute for therapy performed by a professional counselor.
