Realistic BDSM & Kink

This is a list for realistic BDSM fiction firmly grounded in the actual practice. Historical fiction is possible as long as the participants in the scening follow current SSC or RACK practices.

TPE and "contract-books" should NOT be added unless they detail that each partner can get out of any contract or relationship at the drop of a word.

Books which contain scenes of non-con play, even minor, should also NOT be added!

Please do NOT add:

Glitterkink, billionaires, alphamales, prostitution (as in the BDSM occurs with a prostitute), mindfucks, non-con, rape, brainwashing, meta-consent, curbed safewords etc., TPE, BDSM without SSC/RACK.

Authors: Don't just add your books here because you discover there's a "BDSM" in the title. If your books are non-consensual or feature unrealistic BDSM (meaning: it would never happen like this in consensual, informed play), then don't add your books! This is not a means for advertising, it is the single list on GR where we want to gather books with realistic (to the actual lifestyle) BDSM. Please respect this!

message 1: by Reader S. (new)

Reader S. Steelwhisper, what's a curbed safeword?


message 2: by Steelwhisper (new)

Steelwhisper In which context did you read that?

Reader S. Steelwhisper wrote: "In which context did you read that?"

In your description of this list above :) (What shouldn't be included.)

I just want to learn :)


message 4: by Steelwhisper (new)

Steelwhisper Just realised LOL! I'm talking about people being forbidden or hindered from having or saying a safeword, as in that usual scenario where the sub is told that "if you are a real sub there is no safeword" or "a real slave submits and has no safeword" or the Top disregards the safewording/refusing sub and it is not seen as a negative.


message 5: by Reader S. (new)

Reader S. Okay, thank you :)


message 6: by Steelwhisper (new)

Steelwhisper Once again:

This list is for REALISTIC BDSM!

It's the only list which is restricted to realistically depicted BDSM, there are dozens of other BDSM lists out there which accept fantasies, sugar-kink, non-con, rape-fic and whatnot. Please don't add such books here, they will be deleted!
