Some terms

So Kata and I sat down to define some terms that seemed to need a little explaining. Since the general public- or at least the public that is viewing this work is unfamiliar with the BDSM world and is not sensitive to some major issues, we took the liberty of creating a pamphlet with quite a bit of useful terminology. 
One of the most exciting things has been the feedback, and we hope more people approach us about including new terms and expanding the ideas we started with.
