Medical Education in B.D.S.M
As I've mentioned in another article, BDSM practice should be reserved for those over 18, as this legally makes them an adult in most countries. The reason this is so important is because when things do go wrong, as they so easily can, they can be tried in court as an adult. BDSM comes with risk attached to it, no matter what element of it you're interested in experiencing. So, from my few years of research, I thought I'd share some of the medical knowledge I've picked up.

Why you should be 18+ to enter into B.D.S.M
First of all, let me begin by telling you I was 16 when I got interested in B.D.S.M. I was in my first year at college in the U.K and I won't lie to you, I was uneducated and shouldn't have been playing with things like breathing. Yes, it was fun and no, I didn't do any lasting damage but that's not the point. The point is, one mistake could've killed me.
