I am conducting a survey and questioner on the topic of BDSM. If anyone is willing to answer a few questions for me and respond privately or email me my profile name. It would be much appreciated. 1. At what age did you first experiment with S&M? 2. Are you male or female? 3. Are you a sadist, masochist, or a switch? 4. If there was any misconceptions you would like to clear up to the world what would be the most important one? 5. Are you open about being into S&M with your close friends? 6. How do you initiate or find someone willing to participate? 7. Are you single, in a relationship, or married? 8. Are you gay, straight, or bisexual? 9. This question may be a bit personal and I understand if you cannot answer it. What is the most extreme and elaborate fantasy you have experienced? 10. Is there anything else you can share with me that would be beneficial for my paper? The basis of my paper is to clear up misconceptions with how people view S&M. Finding the taboos and why people are so opposed by it. I really appreciate any input you have to share with me. I am a saddest but cannot use my own views or opinions. Thank you for any help you can provide!
