BDSM Relationships often take the form of play and/or long term relationships and may be casual or not. These relationships may or may not involve physical or emotional intimacy.

Power Exchange[edit | edit source]

Relationship styles in BDSM are frequently broken up into non-binary relationships and power exchange relationships.

While it is acceptable to assume that in any given interaction there is some form of power exchange, the non-binary relationships do not necessarily require a conscious transfer of power or authority in order to exist (even though they may/might possess conscious exchange of power), while the power exchange relationships tend to function with this is a key part of the roles of the relationship in some capacity. In many cases relationships may follow one, none, or many of the listed templates.
