Question Is this normal? - January 6th 2017, 11:05 AM

Hi, so I am 15 years old and I am into bdsm.
I really want some reassurance that there are other people out there around my age that are into it, it'd also be nice to talk to someone about their experiences with bdsm

Hi there,

I'm not your age, but I have known a few people who are into BDSM. I believe people can get fetishes at any age. However, I would be extremely careful if you do act upon BDSM and do it with someone who you really trust and when you're ready. Don't rush into this stuff.

I've never really tried BDSM, not properly anyway

Hey there

Don't worry too much about it, it's perfectly normal. People are into different stuff and you are into bdsm. That's ok.
I don't have much personal experience with it (only a bit), but I had a close friend who gave me lots of information. So if you have any questions, you can always ask me.

Generally, be careful! There's nothing wrong with trying out some things, but there are a lot of assholes out there, who have no idea what they are actually doing. Inform yourself properly before you try anything.

It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

It is definitely normal! People can find out what they are interested in at any age.

If this is something you are interested in trying, make sure you do it with someone you trust who is willing to communicate with you every step of the way and stop or do something else if you say you want to do that. Make sure it is with someone who you are legally able to do it with due to the age of consent, and also look up safety information for the type of BDSM you are doing. For example, with ropes it is a good idea to keep scissors around in case things go wrong and if your appendages such as your fingers or hands get cold, stop so you don't cut off circulation.
