First, the title is extremely misleading. Sex party, as defined by Urban Dictionary, is a place to go to engage in sexual activity. A BDSM play party, as defined by Wikipedia, is a place to go and socialize and engage in BDSM activities. BDSM and sex are not equivalent. It is troubling that BDSM is not defined in the article. There are a lot of BDSM activities and play, or scenes, that do not involve engaging in sexual activity. It is also disappointing to see that most of the individuals highlighted in the article were victims of abuse. Although there is a quote included in the article, almost as a footnote, that not all individuals who engage in BDSM activities were victims of sexual abuse, the article heavily features abuse as a precursor to their current kinky behaviors.
