Christians and BDSM

July 13, 2010

I’m not kidding. And it’s not an anti-site.

Christians and BDSM

But when you read this on the home page, you can’t be too terribly surprised:

This web site has been created to help people explore the possibility that the lifestyle known as D/s (Dominance and submission) and the sexual activities called BDSM (Bondage and Discipline/Dominance and Submission/Sadomasochism) may be compatible with a Christian lifestyle, when practiced consensually within the bonds of marriage.

You may not agree with our lifestyle. We believe this is because you may have certain preconceptions about D/s or BDSM. We feel that these preconceptions are tainted by the secular media and entertainment industry, especially concerning D/s. We believe that, if practiced within a Biblical context, the D/s relationship is closer to the Biblical model for marriage than the one taught by most churches today. Understand that we base our beliefs solely on our understanding of the Bible and not on the opinions of individuals or on societal norms.

We believe you have a right to disagree with us. We welcome your questions or comments. You may e-mail us. However, we strongly believe that all people have the right to enjoy the blessings of religious freedom without being subject to personal attacks. If you are going to state that our beliefs are wrong, do so in a respectful manner, take on our beliefs and not us personally, and provide Scripture references to back up your beliefs.

Of course, the further you delve into it, the murkier it gets:

It does differ from secular BDSM in that the relationship is (or should be) confined to a husband and wife in male dominant/female submissive roles.

Yet, there is a section on femdommes: The Christian FemDomme. But at the same time it carries this note from the site admin:

While I realize the issue of female dominant/male submissive relationships is a hotly debated one in the Christian BDSM community, I feel that Lady Hellion has given a well thought out Biblically based approach to this type of relationship.

    It is definitely an interesting concept, in fact I am sure that religion or past religion may play a part of the conflict that many face as they become more and more aware of their differences between themselves and the vanilla world.

    Unfortunately much of the world is very closed minded. If a Christian support group for Christians who are into D/s exists, then I say good for them. I don’t have to agree on their personal take on things, but at least there is someplace that will accept those who struggle with their faith and their inescapable nature.

    Thanks for pointing this out, I had never heard of such a thing before.
