Kinky cards

This next project belongs to the NSFW (Not Safe For Work) category and definitely not for minors as well. The centering theme for this deck is BDSM. Therefore, it makes absolute sense that this project is titled Kinky Cards.

For starters, BDSM isn’t for the fainthearted because BDSM includes bondage and discipline (B&D), dominance and submission (D&S), and sadism & masochism (S&M). A little googling about its origins shows some evidence that it has been around for thousands of years in ancient civilisations. Some ancient religions have rituals such as diamastigosis in ancient Sparta in front of an altar at the sanctuary of Artemis Orthia. It was a test of a boy’s bravery and resistance to pain. In the Tomb of the Whipping (dated approximately 490BC), there is an erotic painting that depicts a sadomasochistic act involving two men flogging a woman.

Similar acts of BDSM are not only a modern theme but has occurred way back in antiquity as a cult ritual or as a sexual act. However, due to negative portrayals in movies and pornography and a lack of complete understanding of what it truly is, BDSM is often mistakenly associated with people who have a sick mind or who loves pain. That is not the complete picture, here is an article from Buzzfeed listing 25 things about BDSM which we should know about. Forget about Fifty Shades of Grey because it isn’t a true representation of BDSM.
