So my penchant for orgies, group sex, whips, chains, leather harnesses, ball gags, lots of lube, and nipple clamps is perfectly normal so long as I get to act out my desires?

Good to know.

Who's free this Friday?

No, it's normal if you're OK with it. If you aren't OK with it, you are probably suffering from a crippling disorder known as "raised with stupid sexual mores jammed into your head, possibly related to religious idiocy".

Well, those of the furry fandom are now safe.

I still don't know about the Bronies, though.

So if you pay to get whipped and are unhappy with services rendered it's not your mistress sucking at her job, it's your mental disorder playing up?

As I understand the understandably murky standards of the DSM (it's really an insurance manual, not a psychological text)  The standards for classifiying a "paraphilia" as a mental illness is NOT whether something strange or unsual turns you on, but when it becomes such an obsession that you can ONLY get off that way, which isn;t a half-bad dividing line IMHO.  Homosexuality never belonged in the DSM because which sex you happened to be attracted to is fundmanetally different from what props you require in the bedroom

Like its predecessor  the DSM-V is a travesty of logic.  It presumes that all things are abnormal and cause for correction.  There is no diagnosis for normal in it.

DSM-V is shaping up to be a slow-motion train wreck of epic proportions.

czetie: DSM-V is shaping up to be a slow-motion train wreck of epic proportions.


This.

It's gone from "There are some distinct problem patterns that we will categorize" to "If we can categorize it, there must be a problem"

and mental health care once again moves backwards.

I wouldn't put it that way.  Rather, it's a mental problem if it causes you problems.  That's the dividing line between simply being different and having a psych diagnosis.

No.  Things that aren't normal **AND** bother the patient or keep him from functioning in society.

Yeah, I agree. Whilst I'd be the first to defend kink against people who would brand it as intrinsically immoral, I'd also be the first to admit there's some real asshats and disturbed nutters who are kinky too.
