                  Submissive BDSM Play Partner Check List

                             By Tammad Rimilia

This checklist should be filled out by a Sub and provided to their Dom/Top
before playing with them. This will provide a quick "head-start" to
identifying limits, negotiating and finding common ground for play.
Dominants may wish to work through the checklist, to get a better handle on
their specific interests. Switches should go through the checklist twice;
one persons Dom and Sub interests may be very different.

For each item, you need to provide two answers:

   * For experience, write YES or NO next to each item to indicate if you
     have ever DONE that activity. Mark N/A if it does not apply to your
   * For willingness, indicate for each item how you feel about DOING that
     activity by rating it on a scale of NO or 0 to 5.
        o "?" means you don't understand what the item is attempting to
        o NO means you will NOT do that item under any circumstances (a hard
        o 0 (zero) indicates you have utterly no desire to do that activity
          and don't like doing it (in fact, may loath it) and would
          ordinarily object to doing it, but you would permit the Dominant
          to do it if it they really wanted it. (sometimes called a "soft
        o 1 means you don't want to do or like to do this activity, but
          wouldn't object if it was asked of you.
        o 2 means you are willing to do this activity, but it has no special
          appeal for you.
        o 3 means you usually like doing this activity, at least on an
          irregular/ occasional basis.
        o 4 means you like doing this activity, and would like to experience
          it on a regular basis.
        o 5 means the activity is a wild turn-on for you, and you would like
          it as often as possible.
   * Mark with an asterisk (*) those items which you are willing to do only
     with your current sex partner(s), but not with casual play-partners.
   * Note any additional information or nuances which might be important for
     your Dom to know in the margin to the right. For example under diapers
     you might wish to distinguish between "wetting" and "soiling".

There is intentionally some overlap between categories. Unless otherwise
stated, the Sub is the recipient/target of the activity.

I hope you find this enlarged version useful. I'm delighted that SFPSE has accepted back my contribution of my enlarged version, so this is now the "standard" one. A little detective-work turned up that the original checklist was written by "JillM"; I am indebted to her for originating this useful resource. A special thanks to those people who have written to suggest something I hadn't thought of; the checklist is better for their contributions! Most prefer to remain anonymous, but I'd like to acknowledge Mistress Kim from Iron Rose, and Lee. I have placed this document into the public domain, distribution unlimited. Please feel free to share it with friends, mailing lists, etc. The master copy can be found at in the over21 section. Select "bondage" followed by "bondage how-to".
