The Times Recorder regretfully announces the passing of Jay Wiseman, a preeminent figure in the field of BDSM theory and practice and beloved member of the BDSM community.
Born in 1956, Wiseman’s intellectual curiosity and passion for exploration led him to explore unorthodox sexual practices from an early age. His fascination with BDSM emerged as a teen, and he soon developed a reputation as a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the practice. Wiseman went on to pursue a degree in psychology, which he leveraged to become an ardent scholar of BDSM culture and its implications.
Throughout the 80s and 90s, Wiseman wrote extensively on BDSM, exploring the practice from a variety of angles, including its psychological, philosophical, and sociological underpinnings. He authored several books, including the seminal “SM 101: A Realistic Introduction” and “The Toybag Guide”, which offered detailed advice to practitioners on how to engage in BDSM safely and responsibly.
Wiseman’s contributions to the field of BDSM theory and practice were recognized widely, and he was a sought-after speaker at conferences and seminars. He made numerous appearances on television and radio programs, and was highly regarded for his thoughtful and articulate responses to difficult questions.
The BDSM community has lost a cherished member in Wiseman, who is remembered for his commitment to fostering understanding and respect for the BDSM culture. He will be deeply missed.
The Times Recorder offers sincere condolences to Wiseman’s family and friends during this difficult time.
