What does the BDSM Emblem mean?
The BDSM emblem has no “obvious” symbolism because it was created to be enigmatic. To the vanilla observer who would be put off by BDSM, it is merely an attractive piece of jewelry. Thus, we can wear it freely as a friendly salute, nod, and wink to other BDSMers we should happen to pass on the sidewalks and in the hallways of our daily lives.
To the insider, however, the Emblem is full of meaning.
The three divisions represent the various threesomes of BDSM. First of all, the three divisions of BDSM itself: B&D, D&S, and S&M. Secondly, the three-way creed of BDSM behavior: Safe, Sane, and Consensual. Thirdly, the three divisions of our community: Tops, Bottoms, and Switches.
It is this third symbolism that gives meaning to the holes in each unit. Since BDSM is at the very least a play style and at its greatest a love style, the holes represent the incompleteness of any individual within the BDSM context. However “together” and “whole” individuals may be, there remains a void within them that can only be filled by a complimentary other. BDSM cannot be done alone.
The resemblance to a three-way variation on the Yin-Yang symbol is not accidental. As the curved outline of Yin and Yang represent the hazy border between where one ends and the other begins, so do the curved borders here represent the indistinct divisions between B&D, D&S, and S&M.
The metal and metallic color of the medallion represents the chains or irons of BDSM servitude/ownership. The three inner fields are black, representing a celebration of the controlled dark side of BDSM sexuality.
The curved lines themselves can be seen as a stylized depiction of a lash as it swings, or even an arm in motion to deliver an erotic spanking. The all-embracing circle, of course, represents the overlying unity of it all and the oneness of a community that protects its own.
I see a huge one of these in the dungeon where I go. It is hanging on the wall in a big room. I knew it was an emblem, but it is cool to find out what everything means.
so much greatness.
Wilder was initially hesitant, but finally accepted the role under one condition:
When I make my first entrance, I’d like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I’m walking on and stands straight up, by itself… but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause.
When Stuart asked why, Wilder replied, “because from that time on, no one will know if I’m lying or telling the truth.”
And this right here is why Wilder’s wonka is better than Depp’s.
This version is the only version in my life.

Not just in the physical sense.
Trust me… he knows you are there.
But in an intimate sense.
In a personalized sense.
In a “I can see right
Into your soul” sense.
There is a lot to be said
For sucking a cock well.
And anyone can make
Even the strongest man
Weak in the knees.
But to thoroughly
LOVE what you are doing…
THAT is something
You really can’t fake.
Either you do…
Or you don’t.
Feeling you throb
Between my lips…
Having your cock jump
Against my tongue…
Watching your balls
Tighten and pulse…
That is all part of MY pleasure.
But looking up
As you are deep
in my throat…
Seeing in YOUR eyes
Just how much
I am pleasing you…
Seeing in YOUR eyes
Just how much
You want me back…
Seeing the reflection
Of Passion’s Dance
from my eyes
That is Contact.
mmmm i love this
