BDSM - these fics contain people hurting each other consensually (or maybe just tying each other up.)

The consensual bit is key. BDSM is a way for people to have sex and relate to each other, and just because it might involve some of the same props as a torture fic, or some of the same verbiage as a rape fic, doesn't make it one. Or, just as important--and something people often miss in fandom, and which pisses me off--doesn't make a rape or torture fic a BDSM fic. If something here is tagged with both BDSM and, say, abuse, that's because it contains both consent issues and consensual kink at various points, not because I'm conflating the two.

Okay, off the soapbox now. I love BDSM, in fic and in real life, and write a lot of it--it's actually harder for me to write vanilla sex, and a lot of subtle bits of kinky psychology will creep into things in unexpected places--so I certainly did need the tag. Enjoy!
