Så mycket mer än vanligt sex: En studie av meningsskapande kring BDSM

Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå från Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

Sammanfattning: The aim of this study was to examine the meaning constructed in BDSM sexuality, a sexuality predominantly composed of dominance and submission, and also to relate these findings to existing theory. A semi-structured interview guide was constructed. Then seven interviews were conducted with individuals self-identified as sexually submissive and/or dominant. The interviews were interpreted with IPA (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis). The interpretation resulted in six different themes: individual sexual development, BDSM and normative society, the subculture, to define and accept ones sexuality and identity, sexual practice and core meaning. The results indicate that the subculture and relation to society at large is important for self-esteem and sexual identity. The core meaning revolves around giving up and receiving control and agency and also around the illusion of coercion. These meanings exist in a space between reality and fantasy. These findings corroborate to a high degree with existent theory on the subject. “Sadomasochism” has until recently been a psychiatric diagnosis in the Swedish version of ICD-10.
