WIITWD on the Internet: BDSM Online in the 1990s

What It Is That We Do

The World Wide Web began to become more widely available in the mid 1990s and it became a catalyst for the growth of BDSM. It was an excellent source for information --- and disinformation as well.

  • About BDSM Usenet Newsgroups: In the mid-1990s, visiting newsgroups was a great way to learn about WIITWD. The resource on this page are mostly offered as historical documentation.
  • About the POWERotics Foundation and Hans Meijer: The POWERotics Foundation was one of many Internet publisher with BDSM themed web sites. It no longer exists, but many of the articles by its chairman, Hans Meijer, are still available on-line and still relevant. Some are on EvvilMonk.org.
