S&M could save your business (or relationship)…

S&M requires commitment, it often leaves people fulfilled, and eager for more. There are lessons to be learned.

During ‘work’ when they are doing a scene an S&M or, to give it its full title, BDSM (Bondage and discipline, Dominance and submission, Sadism and Masochism) team gets results because:

In summary, the above facilitates trust and enables the team to become a real partnership. The list creates a space for the people involved to act from a place of feeling and therefore are present as their true selves. Each team member is dedicated, has the utmost respect for what their partner brings, and gives space for the other to investigate without fear of judgment. They are open, honest, work together, focus on what they are doing, and on improving how they are doing it.

On top of all that, at the end of the day, if mistakes are made, the team hug it out, look for the lesson and know they’re able to try again another day.

Varying the level of physical contact in whichever way one would like, who wouldn’t want to work for a business (or be part of a relationship) that was like that?
