Submissive BDSM Play Partner Check List

By Tammad Rimilia

This checklist should be filled out by a Sub and provided to their Dom/Top before playing with them. This will provide a quick "head-start" to identifying limits, negotiating and finding common ground for play. Dominants may wish to work through the checklist, to get a better handle on their specific interests. Switches should go through the checklist twice; one persons Dom and Sub interests may be very different.

For each item, you need to provide two answers:

There is intentionally some overlap between categories. Unless otherwise stated, the Sub is the recipient/target of the activity.

I started in 1996 with a much smaller checklist which I found at the marvelous SFPSE site http://www.sexuality.org/ftpsite.html at The University of Washington, specifically http://www.sexuality.org/l/bdsm/checklst.txt , and then greatly expanded. I hope you find this enlarged version useful. I'm delighted that SFPSE at UW has accepted back my contribution of an intermediate version of my enlarged edition, so my version is now the "standard" one. A little detective-work turned up that the original checklist was written by "JillM", who has granted me permission to enhance and share it with everyone; I am indebted to her for originating this useful resource.

A special thanks to those people who have written to suggest something I hadn't thought of; the checklist is better for their contributions! Most prefer to remain anonymous, but I'd like to acknowledge Mistress Kim from Iron Rose, and Lee.

I have placed this document into the public domain, distribution unlimited. Please feel free to share it with friends, mailing lists, etc. If you make a copy, a link back to this page is always appreciated. The master copy can be found in /~tammad/over21/bondage/

A pure ASCII version is also available, suitable for E-mailing.
