Gorean vs. BDSM

Many people are attracted to the atmosphere of playful polymorphic perversity (embracing all fetishes, all identities in all combinations, etc.) which infuses BDSM, but many others are repelled by it. That's why some groups (not only Goreans, but also "Taken in Hand" etc, who are interested in an overall lifestyle but not in game-playing or temporary "scenes") borrow or independently re-invent a fairly narrow range of particular BDSM techniques, but do not wish to identify themselves with the overall BDSM ethos or philosophy...

Of course, most of the original Gor paperbacks were first published before BDSM really came together as a conscious pan-fetish movement (the acronym BDSM itself was apparently not coined until 1990 or 1991)... AnonMoos (talk) 15:18, 27 May 2019 (CEST)
