WHAT IS A SWITCH ???

THE DEFINITION IS :

BDSM is convenient 4 letter abbreviation of 6 words
- Bondage & Discipline (B&D)
-Domination & Submission (D&S)
-Sadism & Masochism (or Sadomasochism) (S&M).

I Do Love the Bondage and Light Discipline .
I enjoy Domination and submission part of it too ...but
I am not so keen on Discipline if it is Hard Sadism as
I am not into Masochism or Humiliation.

In BDSM,
a switch is someone who participates in BDSM activities
sometimes as a top and other times as a bottom or (in the case of dominance and submission) sometimes as a dominant and other times as a submissive.
Partners may switch roles based on mood, desire, or to allow each partner to experience their preferred activity.
For example, a switch may be in a relationship with someone of the same primary BDSM orientation (e.g., two dominants), but enjoys participating as either orientation, so switching provides each partner with an opportunity to realize his or her BDSM needs.

Why do people switch?
That is easy to answer.
Some people need to submit,
some need to Dom.....
others need both!

the human mind is extremely amazing, you can change orientation according to your state of mind, but it is even more amazing the change to which is willing the mate of the switch, willing to change just to love, a profound choice that deserves our respect

the human mind is beyond measure amazing, the ability of a person to change its orientation depending on the mood, but it certainly is even more amazing and admirable appeasement of the mate of a switch, which accepts to change for love, extraordinary choices that deserve all our respect

SM is MS, always, the others are liars or
mercenaries.
It isn't a switch, a master give the pleasure
in the same way he needs to receive it,
a whip master need to be whipped.
At the same time a master suffer because
the slave is able to say :
"More, again, what you did is not enough."
So the BDSM needs to be discussed, needs
deals, needs to be planned, is a discipline
not a game to add some spices to a relationship,
because even a wrong knot may damage a lot,
you're a medic, cyanosis is dangerous.

I love this explanation Jersey.

I only recently learned to distinguish between the two and, in doing so, I've come to see a whole new world.

I am so naturally "dominant" in my sexual and daily life that I failed to notice just how much I needed to feel submissive for a change. But because I really wasn't aware of these terms, I had no idea that the increasing sexual tension I was feeling was, in fact, an urge to relinquish my control and will (to some extent) to another human being. Now that I can pinpoint it, I feel so liberated. Lilith doesn't have nearly as much power over me ; )

Very well defined, for me a switch is it. It is a pleasure to experience both sides. Open up all your senses and feelings, it is a wonderful thing.
