But there are many types of "Masters" — known as Dominants — and several types of "slaves" — known as submissives, and most are made up of perfectly healthy, high-functioning people within perfectly healthy, high-functioning relationships.

Most people consider BDSM synonymous with the more old-fashioned, somewhat out-dated label "S & M" — sadomasochistic relationships in which one person, the Master (or Mistress), has complete control and the other, the slave, is a willing victim and subject to his or her Master's every whim.
Daddy dom and little girl relationships are possibly the most commonly misunderstood among the range of those that fall under the umbrella of BDSM kink.
