  1. Does your boyfriend/girlfriend beat you up?
  2. Would you like to join a support group for survivors of abuse or a battered women’s shelter?
  3. Do you think so low of yourself that it’s OK for someone to hit you?
  4. Have you been in a series of relationships where your partners hit you?
  5. Where on earth did you get that (bruise/brand/scar/mark)?
  6. Are you in therapy for this problem?
  7. Why would anyone actually enjoy doing that?
  8. Aren’t you a feminist?There is a lot of controversy about BDSM in the feminist community. For a feminist BDSMer perspective read Coming to Power by Samois, listed in the Resource section.Taken literally, the answer may be “yes” because some people find consensual role play “humiliation” erotic. In other cases, it is simply insulting to the patient and the answer need be self-evidently “no.”There is no data showing a correlation, let alone a causality, of abuse and BDSM.Survivors of abuse who do practice BDSM have widely different perceptions of whether or not a correlation between their abuse and their BDSM exists.
