Research Shows: Kink is Good for You

According to new research from the Netherlands (where else?), the psychological profile of people who participate in bdsm “is characterized by a set of balanced, autonomous, and beneficial personality characteristics.” Compared to those who engage in more mainstream sexual behavior, such aficionados report “a higher level of subjective well-being.”

The researchers found that “BDSM participants as a group are, compared with non-BDSM participants, less neurotic, more extroverted, more open to new experiences, more conscientious, yet less agreeable,”
“Finally, the subjective well-being of BDSM participants was higher than that of the control group. Together, these findings suggest that BDSM practitioners are characterized by greater psychological and interpersonal strength and autonomy.”
As a final note the researchers conclude that "BDSM scores were generally more favourably for those with a dominant than a submissive role."

I knew it. Kink is good for you. Still ain't gonna tell mum about my Saturday nights.
