Potential backlash. So to speak.

How do you expect to receive an answer to this?

Because your mom posted it.

It's anonymous because MeFites have a long memory and maybe the guy doesn't want to go around being known as "that BDSM guy." I have no idea why that isn't blindingly obvious.

You'd think if someone liked being beat up, they'd love posting to AskMeta! ::rimshot::

I suppose their is a chance that you might not just be being difficult for the sake of being difficult, so let me be succinct: BSDM falls outside of the sexual norm, people are weird about vanilla sex, therefore, would probably be weird about asking about BSDM. Got it?

There's "ha ha you should totally do this" conversations in #mefi, and then there's "omg you obviously shouldn't have actually done this, what are you, a retard?" comments and a creeping sense of regret in metatalk fifteen minutes later.
