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