Appeals of D&S

2002-06-05 22:32:37+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

I've tried dabbling a little bit, then realized that it's not my kink, but part of what's intrigued me about BDSM(nlop) has been that sense of implicit communication, an amazing level of the top understanding the needs of the bottom in ways that I would love to be able to communicate with my partner. Debra's latest diary entry touches on some of that.

ok I've enjoyed getting an education and while I think I understand this "scene" a bit better I'm still obligated to ask basic dumb questions. SO what is (nlop) ???

I don't know if that's still in common useage, but back when I first started reading alt.sex.bondage people who were trying to be inclusive would start to expand BDSM out with acronyms for every other practice they were trying to cover. BDSMTSTVTGPPyaddayaddea. Eventually people started to just write BDSMNLOP, and then the NLOP started getting smaller. Just harking back to more innocent times, is all.

Or maybe an nlop is related to a mini-lop.

I was thinking:
no limits on partners
no limits on pain
no limits on pleasure
no llamas or ponies
nice ladies only please
I've no clue what that could possibly mean, really.

Gimme a break, I'm from the south, where the most common acronym is NASCAR, which everyone knows stands for Nasty A$ Skanks, Cretins, And Rednecks.

Thanks, Larry. (I also was afflicted with The Blank Stare.)
