FetLife: The Social Network for The Global BDSM Community

At last the digital spectrum has a devoted space for the global Bondage Discipline Sadism and Masochism (BDSM) community with FetLife. Wow, what a relief to find a home at last. A place to share stories, pics and recipes for the BDSM lifestyle devotee. Sitting round the fire with the family album on your knees and gazing fondly at some images captured recently. Tied up naked and taking a beating in your privates, bent over submissively and begging for another shellacking – I think it must be love.

 FetLife: The Social Network for The Global BDSM Community

Thank god for a community of like-minded people. No more furtive winks at parties, well, less reliance on that old favourite way of meeting PLUs anyway. I suppose the digital age is more about categorisation than anything else. Computer technology is at its heart a filing system. Algorithms for identifying determining factors. Digital drawers for keeping the red buttons separate from the blue. Fetishisms: things we like to do to pleasure ourselves, alone and with others. FetLife is an online club for pleasure seekers with different spots. Will the striped tiger excite the spotted leopard?

Endless pleasures of the flesh, which all have one thing in common – the human mind. Sex is in the head, no matter which way you approach it, from upside down or back to front. Does categorisation diminish us? If all the fetish forms are laid out in a grid and you queue in a particular line, does that make you run of the mill? Am I all tied up over you? Do your attentions make me bleed? Will I ever get over you? Oh, baby it hurts so fine. Sweet love, sweet time, sweet, sweet, time.

In ten years’ time, we will have FetLife insurance and FetLife health. When you put all the yellow marbles in the one place, smart cookies want to make a business out of it. Think of the Mormons, the Adventists and the Jews, networking and all doing business with their PLUs. Sex life predilections become a defining thing socially and, then, economically and politically. I only vote for those that beat me black and blue. Finding love in strange places and all that mixed stew. Private life matters on digital display in the 24 hour-a-day computer filing system. BDSM bosom buddies making hanky panky with some very fine barbed wire.
