“We’re all Horny, No Matter What Our Creed”
Why the hell I’m still on Whisper I don’t know. But I blame my fellow bloogerBigBoldnBright as occasionally we’ve discussed BDSM and religion !
Clicking on the local filter (actually I’ve met one community friend on there now) a very brummie type post came up in text speak under the group ‘Muslim’. Now I live in an area with, on a smaller scale a very mixed religious make up. Christians (of all denominations) Sikh’s, Muslims, Jews. Similar to London perhaps but not quite so diverse!
The words read as follows:
“Why are kinks such a taboo in our community fgs urgh”
I did a quick research, theres actually very little info on Islam and kink.
There IS some info including a good few people on Fetlife. So pointed him to the site! Hopefully he’’ll get a little education, or not! Or find what he’s looking for.
What I did discover were the following: Sex generally isn’t a mainstream casual discussion among Muslim’s in a social setting they are among most of us when among friends, or on social gatherings.
In our media driven western society we gossip like hell, generally about our sex lives, who’s shagging who, and thats even before getting onto casual workplace/playground chitchat and the ‘reality TV gossip’.
I would guess in some devout practitioners of other religions there may be similarities.
It IS however discussed among same sex groups. So men in groups talk about sex, women in groups talk about it. I haven’t had the chance to closely lookup BDSM and its relationship to the Hindu, or Jewish religions, more to say there are groups on various adult platforms that lead discussion.
SHIA and SUNNI, a brief background. While this isn’t important to BDSM, understanding perhaps WHY BDSM isn’t so openly embraced in the Muslim community IS important. Knowledge and learning is enlightenment.!
While I’m not on Reddit, there’s some fairly intelligent discussion here on BDSM and religion.
Muslim Women Like Having Sex, and Halal Lube Is a Thing That Exists
This to me was a very interesting article, in most of the USA, Europe and UK sex toys, and shops are pretty much par for the course, LoveHoney is an online leader in sales and Ann Summers is in most shopping centres (Malls) Try opening such as shop in a generally devout country of any religion and there will be misunderstanding and ignorance.
Neither Slave Nor Pharaoh Finding the Divine in BSDM
In the article below we see the story of a real life Dominatrix in a seemingly finding solace in play with a Muslim submissive in Egypt. I actually really liked this article.
“Abdallah asks if I want to hear Egyptian music. I say yes.I tell him that earlier that week, I had bumped into a Palestinian man who said that Egyptians are either slaves or pharaohs”
This stuck out to me as BDSM is often seen having some sort of ‘issue’ behind it, either abuse or upbringing. While this may be true in some cases, in others it may be more of a huge cultural background, perhaps suppressed, in the ages of ‘equality’ some history in cultures, it seems are hard to rub off. Were my BDSM playmates abused in their youth? Generally no. Might they have gone through some of life’s harder knocks, like difficult siblings/parents/health issues, grief or sudden loss.
Almost every ‘Civilised’ culture seems to have some sort of non consensual background of slavery to it.
Many people do, not all develop an interest in BDSM, not everyone in BDSM has a colourful background to life.
About an hour long, but at least gives a good informative insight into one individual very much in the kink community.
Interview with slave Alia
This video really was quite enlightening, about an hour long, based in the US and describes slave Alias submission and relationship and incorporation of Islam as a Shiite Muslim woman.
