      NEWS: Discord Server & Clubs (aka Groups) are back!   08/19/17

      Hello everyone I'm back with a couple big updates! Firstly we now have a Discord server, this is a real-time chat messaging client you can run on your phone, desktop, or anywhere. It's a pretty powerful desktop application that enables people to chat together, and with multiple channels you can find people interested in what you're interested in. If you don't already have a Discord account it's pretty easy to get one, just click the following invite link to get started: https://discord.gg/U93PYnB Secondly I'm proud to announce the return of Groups, it's been renamed to Clubs and is now available here: https://muscle-growth.org/clubs/. This system is entirely user generated and allows users to create groups of their own based on any subject they want. Go ahead and try it now, visit the link above to get started if you want to create or join a group!   As always thank you to all of our donators and Patreon contributors who keep the forums going!

SM as therapy, muscle fetish as therapy

Recommended Posts

I ran into a curious piece in the "Atlantic" this morning about the use of BDSM as therapy.

https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/10/when-bdsm-is-therapeutic/412249/

The article profiles a couple that has a practice where they work with clients on specific issues, using sm play as a means to overcome psychological problems.  One for example, used it as a way to purposely induce panic attacks so she could deal with them in her everyday life.  Others use it as a way to get at anger management or control issues.

I've known many gay Leather/SM fetishists over the years that have talked about this with their own play.

Reading this, it made me think about how my own muscle fetish has made me deal with some of my body image and psychological aspects of my health issues.

Interesting. From what I've read, People should be mentally healthy (as in, not going through issues right then and there). Cool to read about people who utilize BDSM to help people with their issues.
