Switching Sides: What it Means to be a Switch in BDSM

Today we welcome author Sidney Bristol to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Sidney's new release, Committed, has a super-sexy romance with a DEA agent hero. The heroine of Committed identifies as a 'switch,' a term Sidney is here to explain. Thanks, Sidney!

BDSM is a big umbrella term that covers a whole range of things—and all the in-betweens. In Romancelandia we’re all very well acquainted with the Dominant and submissive roles—genders aside. We’re even familiar with the ideals behind the Master and slave relationship. 

But what else is there? A lot, actually, but those four role types get the most mileage in our hot and sexy books. They’re easy to define and our traditional relationship roles translate into them. Even for those who don’t quite “get” kink, they can understand the pleasures of giving up control—or taking control—from their partner. One person does stuff to a person, while the other person enjoys having stuff done to them. That’s an overly simplistic explanation, but you get the idea.
