National Leather   Association International Domestic Violence Project (NLA-I DVP)

It is important to note that what those within the BDSM lifestyle consider abuse may also constitute criminal activity (depending upon the laws in a particular state) and there are instances where reports to authorities have been made which have resulted in prosecution.

However, at first glance, even though the majority of BDSM activities and relationships could fall into the category of domestic or intimate partner violence as defined by the CDC,13 and other organizations, because many forms of BDSM include fantasy exploration or enactment (rape, kidnapping, castration, abduction, interrogation, humiliation, etc.,) it is important to understand the difference between the two.

The distinction between domestic violence and abuse is so important to those practicing BDSM that organizations such as the NLA-I have their own domestic violence project. Up to date information as well as presentations can be seen here:http://www.nlaidvproject.us/
