BDSM as a spending priority – Female Tops or Dominants rate it as more important


aveburysarsenTNThis is the third article about the results of the BDSM and Money Survey. It looks at just how important the 123 (85 men and 38 women) Top/dominant  respondents thought BDSM was is in their order of priority for non-essential or “leisure” spending (we left out items like food, energy, housing costs, etc).

The question listed nine areas of spending and asked people to rank them in order of importance, I then gave a rank  of one a score of 9, rank two – score 8,right down to the last ranked (ninth) item having a score of 1.

 

Overall tops and dominants put BDSM spending higher up their priorities (third rather than fourth) than did all the respondents to the survey. Tops and dominants rated BDSM as their third priority after holidays and family events and just ahead of eating out.

Gender Gap

Male and female tops/dominants who responded had really different views on the place of BDSM in their spending priorities: 26% of women said BDSM was their first leisure spending priority as opposed to just 5% of men.

39% of male tops/dominants put BDSM in their top three priorities for leisure cash, compared with 58% of women.

The Professionals

I was asked on fetlife what effect excluding people of all genders who made an income from BDSM would have. The answer is “a lot”:

The percentage of males saying BDSM is their first priority for leisure spending remains the same (5%), whereas for women it drops to 9% when you exclude people who get an income from BDSM. The proportion of “amateur only” women ( 🙂 ) putting BDSM in their top three leisure spends becomes 33%, whilst for blokes it’s 44%.

42% of women who make money from BDSM put it first on their list for spending and 82% put it in their top three “leisure” spending items.
