Erotica Article: Abbreviations in the world of Erotica

Abbreviations, Genre’s, and Symbols in Erotic Writings, General Discussion, and Life in General

By: Charity Daugherty

A list of common and not so common abbreviations has been done before, but I thought it should be expanded on and put on the new blog. I have been working on this master list for a while, but it is important to know that it is ever expanding. Hopefully this helps everyone, and if you have any suggestions please let me know so I can update the list accordingly.

Who is sleeping with whom?

M/F - male and female couple
M/M - male and male couple
F/F - female and female couple
M/F/M - menage where both men have sex with the female but not each other, placing the female at the center of attention

BDSM - This can be deciphered a few different ways:
B/D = Bondage & Discipline
S/M = Sadism & Masochism
D/s = Dominance & Submission
S/M = Slave & Master
The term "BDSM" is used in a general sense to describe any situation or practice which includes erotic power exchange, dominance and submission, pain play, bondage, sensation play, or anything related to these.
Top/Dominant - is partner who is given control
Bottom/Submissive - partner who gives up control
Switch - switches between roles of the dominant and submissive
Glitterkink - expensive BDSM... or you could say rich or expensive clubs.  Like the Shadowlands series.

Sugarkink - basically almost vanilla (reg. old sex) with some BDSM element. Like for instance your husband gets kinky one night and blindfolds you or ties you up, but that is basically as far as it goes.
