The one in front falls backward, trusting the other to catch them before crashing to the floor.

Many people consider BDSM perverted, dehumanizing, or worse. But aficionados call it the most loving, nurturing, intimate form of human contact and play.
People can have sex without conversation, negotiation, or any emotional connection. But in BDSM, the players always arrange things in advance with clear, intimate communication, which creates a special erotic bond. The Kama Sutra A. D, touts erotic spanking, and European references date from the 15th century.
