So you’re writing D/s romance? Isn’t that BDSM? Why don’t you label it BDSM?

Some people have asked me that question when looking at my website and reading that I classify my romances as D/s romances instead of BDSM. And since understanding of BDSM is still very superficial in the general population, I want to dedicate this first blogpost to explaining the difference and why I chose not to label my romances BDSM.
