The present study sought to determine the frequency of BDSM-related (Bondage, Domination, Submission, Masochism) behaviors in a sample of college students. Respondents answered a 22 item survey containing basic demographic questions and 20 original questions related to BDSM behavior. Final analysis revealed that although undergraduate psychology students do not consider themselves member of the BDSM community, the majority of them engage in a large number of BDSM related behaviors.
