Objective: Individual differences between BDSM practitioners and non-practitioners are mostly operationalized through the Big Five or clinical personality models. We take different approach and explore other, theoretically relevant, constructs: disgust sensitivity, sexual beliefs, and orientation to social domination. Assumptions for the research we find in the work of McCarey (1973, Moser, 1999), who suggests that BDSM engagement is associated with sexual disgust sensitivity, and in the work of Jozifkova et al. (2012), who theorize that rank disparity between partners is related to sexual excitement.
