Does BDSM fit the Dimensions of Leisure? A Quantitative Exploration. This study utilizes a large sample of regular BDSM practitioners to explore the degree to which BDSM fits scholarly criteria and dimensions of leisure. Statistical analysis will also consider potential differences on specific dimensions based on particular BDSM identities (i.e., Dominant, submissive, switch, sadist, masochist). Results of this study will test whether or not BDSM can be approached primarily from a leisure science perspective.
