In Chapter 5 I argued that the contradictions inherent to modern dualisms are mirrored by the conventional, misleading interpretations of consensual ‘SM’. These were demonstrated to be completely detached from the ‘life-world’ of consensual ‘SM’ that relates to other, broader socio-cultural phenomena and meanings. This chapter focuses on one specific, additional potential deeper meaning that consensual ‘SM’ ‘bodily practices’ might have for some practitioners.
