6. Description Abstract Play, Pain and Religion is the first consideration of the practices associated with BDSM (Bondage, Domination, Submission and Masochism) in the context of Religious Studies scholarship. The focus is an exploration of BDSM experience as it emerges from the complex interactions of kink activities and relationship. Beginning with the observation that experiences categorised by practitioners as spiritual are commonly described in the same terms, and given the same value, as experiences which are not so categorised the book argues that the significance of a given experience is not located solely within any intrinsic quality ascribed to it but, rather, it is in what the experiencer subsequently constructs from the refined experience. It examines some such constructions, moving away from absolute definitions of religion or religions to consider the religious as an active process with which individuals find their own means to engage and presenting BDSM as one such means of engagement.
