Low and slow is a best practices concept that is to be applied when trying out most new activities or relationship developments concerning BDSM.

Low is used to indicate the aenergy level that should be started with, being, minimal energy input so as not to cause overload.

Slow refers to the notion that one can then gradually increase the energy or frequency involved with the activity or relationship development.

Examples:

  • starting on a low setting of electricity on a violet wand that is gradually increased to the desired level of comfort or discomfort.
  • casually discussing and creating the idea of adding a new protocol like eliminating a behavior of smoking cigarettes to a power exchange dynamic with your partner and then creating a gradually increasing expectation that the protocol be integrated into every day life.
