Abstract

Introduction

BDSM (bondage and control, dominance and distribution, and sadism and masochism) increasingly gets attention through the systematic community. Where previous research efforts mainly dedicated to epidemiologic traits, mental and biologic facets driving BDSM choices have recently gained interest also.

In line with the PRISMA recommendations, the present systematic review brings together all the existing literature on BDSM from a biopsychosocial viewpoint.

Principal Outcome Measure
