According To Science BDSM Sex Can Create An Altered State Of Consciousness


I have always wondered why people bother getting into the whole BDSM sex scene. I’m no prude, but it just seems like a lot of extra work. With all the whips, chains, leather, swings and elaborate pulley systems, I think I’d be exhausted before I even got down to business. If I’m about to have sexy time, I don’t need to make a trip to Home Depot first!

Plus you need to ask your friends to come over and help set this thing up.

However a new scientific study published by the journal of Psychology of Consciousness explains that people who enjoy BDSM may actually achieve an altered state of consciousness. So the dude from Fifty Shades of Grey was not so much into getting off as he is into getting high.

According to the study, which may put me in an altered state by just reading the title, “Consensual BDSM Facilitates Role-Specific Altered States of Consciousness: A Preliminary Study” –bondage enthusiasts get into a “state of flow.” This means the rest of the world goes away and they are able to concentrate about what they are doing.  No thinking about baseball or what you did at work today or someone else other than your partner while you rut away. You are purely focused on your body being whipped and hogtied… which I guess is nice?

One of the researchers, Brad Sagarin of Northern Illinois University explains; “BDSM, because of the intense sensations and potentially because of the restriction of movement, may have the ability to put someone in the here and now in a way that they may find more difficult to achieve through other means.”

Sagarin compares BDSM “flow” to a professional athlete being “in the zone.” Anyone who is doing something they are very good at is able to concentrate and focus on what they are doing, pushing the rest of the world out. Some refer to this as “being in the moment.” It’s just like Michael Phelps making his game face, before getting in the pool, but instead someone is strapping on nipple clamps and getting paddled “for being a bad boy.”

Are there any BDSM aficionados here to let us know if this whole “flow” thing has proven true in your experience? Asking for a friend.
