The Sadomasochistic and the Limits paradoxes

I've just added articles to the O&P Wiki about the Sadomasochistic Paradox (people liking things they don't like) and about the Limits Paradox (unthinkable limits can become huge turn-ons over time.)

Both of these topics are quite mainstream BDSM, but I've added them because they can be very useful when you're trying to talk about how O&P relationships are established and maintained, and how they evolve.

For example, the repeated question "How do you punish a masochist?" is a manifestation of the more general Sadomasochistic Paradox; and how to transform a submissive from hating one of your favourite activities to begging for it requires that you resolve the Limits Paradox.

Possession. Ownership. Consent. Responsibility. Respect. House. Service. Dignity. Authenticity. Rituals.

O&P (Ownership & Possession) is a new structure built from familiar D/s and M/s concepts, defined by the O&P Manifesto.

There is an O&P discussion group on Fetlife.

The O&P Wiki contains articles about O&P and related D/s, M/s, and BDSM topics.

You can also follow O&P on Twitter.
