"The bottom line being"
Haha, I'm sure we're going to see a welter of bad puns on this one.
Couples who spank together stay together - such is the conclusion of two separate pieces of research, reported in the latest edition of New Scientist. According to the report, Brad Sagarin of Northern Illinois University in DeKalb attended an S&M party in Arizona, where he and his colleagues measured levels of the stress …
Sorry folks, but....unless we have truly truly been double bluffed (and I spoke to the NS editorial team before going with this) it is genuine:
Prof Wiseman has indeed written on Quirkology.
The good Italian prof looks in far better shape than someone of her years ought to (I speak from experience):
Whereas Prof Sagarin looks a tad scary:
Oh. If there is a NS spoof for today, it might just be this one:
A Viennese scientist who has spent four years studying navel fluff. DO we believe this or don't we?
Paris, cause even she wouldn't fall for that
... simply because anyone who's been in the BDSM scene for any length of time will know that the vast majority of those who participate in this lifestyle have a much more relaxed attitude to the nature of relationships, based on the idea of mutual respect and consent. They are also used to *talking* about problems, whether it's something that happened in a play session or elsewhere in the relationship.
The rest of the world could learn a lot from this if they weren't so hung up on the idea of "Ugh! BDSM I don't do that perverted stuff!"
At first thought, it might seem strange or even contradictory that engaging in S&M activities would bring a couple closer together. However, the more you think about it, the more you realize it's the logical conclusion. Simply put, when you become submissive and effectively give yourself to someone to do with as they please, you're doing so because you trust them completely. I'm sure there are instances where that's not true, but I would guess that it is true in most cases. That trust, and the reinforcement of that trust through such activities, will inevitably bring a couple closer together.
