9 Full BDSM Checklists – Including Limits, Fetishes & Activities

0  comments

Imagine a FemDom in latex with her sub in a full gimp mask. They look like they have total confidence in their roles in their fetish relationship.

But getting that that place probably required tough conversations. Communication and boundary setting are important. Just like in any other relationship... it takes work!

That's where our BDSM checklists come in.

They're an easy way to set your limits and interests before horny-hormones cloud your judgment. BDSM checklists provide a clear and organised way to communicate about BDSM activities and practices.

By creating the checklist beforehand, you and your partner can have a structured and thoughtful conversation about what you both want and are comfortable with.

This can help prevent misunderstandings or miscommunications and ensures everyone is comfortable with what is happening. 

Don’t worry - you don’t have to come up with your own! We've got checklists for literally EVERYTHING in this article. But first, a little background information, so you know how to use them properly. 

What Is A BDSM checklist?

A list of activities or practices people can use to help them plan and communicate about BDSM scenes or sessions.

The checklist can include things like the specific activities that will be involved, the boundaries and limits of each person, the use of safewords, equipment needed - like these kinky furniture pieces, and any other relevant information. 

The idea behind the checklist is to help ensure that everyone involved in the BDSM activity is on the same page and is comfortable with what is happening, and can make the BDSM experience safer and more enjoyable for all parties involved.

Is There Room For Negotiation? 

To negotiate a BDSM checklist, you and your partner should discuss your desires, boundaries, and limits. This can be done through open and honest communication and may involve discussing your experiences, fantasies, and preferences. It's essential to listen to each other and respect each other's boundaries and limits. 

Once you have a general idea of what you both want, you can create the BDSM checklist. This can involve listing out the specific activities or practices you want to include and any boundaries or limits you want to set. It's essential to be clear and specific in your descriptions and make sure that you agree to and understand everything on the checklist. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a partner - you can use a checklist to explore your fetishes and set limits. It’s also okay if you don’t completely match with your partner! After you fill out your lists, you can compare them and discuss areas where you don’t match up. You can discuss how important activities are to your satisfaction and decide where to go from there.

It's also a good idea to discuss the use of safewords and to agree on a system for checking in with each other during the BDSM scene or session. Once you have completed the BDSM checklist, review it and make any necessary revisions or adjustments. It's also important to remember that the BDSM checklist is not a static document and that you and your partner can always revisit and update it as needed.

How to use a BDSM checklist

  1. You can complete the checklist for your exploration or with a partner to better understand each other’s desires. (If you’re looking for a new partner, check out these BDSM dating sites to find a like-minded partner!)

  2. Fill out the BDSM checklist sober, and while you’re not turned on (although that may change as you start filling it out!) This will help you get the most accurate results. Note any activities you don’t enjoy when you’re not turned on but may desire in the heat of passion.

  3. Set boundaries and limits for each activity or practice. This is crucial for ensuring that everyone is comfortable and that the BDSM experience is safe and enjoyable for all parties involved.

  4. Discuss the use of safewords and agree on a system for checking in with each other during the BDSM scene or session. This is important for ensuring that everyone can communicate openly and honestly, and can stop the activity if necessary.

  5. Review and revise the BDSM checklist as needed. Once you have completed the checklist, it's a good idea to review it together and make any necessary revisions or adjustments.

How To Create Your Own BDSM Checklist

We’ll give you our checklists in a second, but here’s some guidance if you want to create your own. BDSM is fluid, so you might want to use a system using “Yes, No, Maybe, Limit.” Meaning if something is a hard yes or no, you choose that category. If you have a maybe, that means there needs to be more discussion on the topic. If you want to answer yes, but have a limit, you will check the yes, and then write your specific limit in that box.

So, what are some things that go on a BDSM checklist?

  •  Safeword Parameters: is a safeword needed for this activity, or will “no” be enough to denote the desire to stop? Do you want to try this activity with no safeword? What ends the scene in an emergency?
  • Your Desire: is this a must have with your partner, special occasions only, or unimportant?
  • Experience Level:  this gives your partner a good idea of what your comprehension of the activity is.
  • Future Play: if your answer is a hard yes or no, is there a chance that this will change in the future?
  • Consensual Nonconsent: is this an activity where in the heat of passion, you’d like to be guided into it, or one where even a mention of the activity is a turnoff?
  • Equipment: what do you need to play with this activity, if any?
  • Aftercare: does this activity need any special aftercare?
