I'd have to say yes as well. During my Christmas shopping I saw lots of depleted stacks of the books by James. It made me laugh. One of my book clubs has finally moved on from Zane to her novels and it has been funny as hell listening to the discussion. I rarely contribute.

Maybe if it said "or" instead of "and."
I happen to be a dabbler in both.
The OP shows my continued disagreement that they are one and the same.

The term BDSM is believed to have been coined as a compound initialism in the 1990s to combine communities and practices that had a significant amount of crossover – bondage and discipline (B&D or B/D), dominance and submission (D&S or D/s), and sadomasochism or sadism and masochism (S&M or S/M). BDSM is currently frequently used as a catch-all phrase to includes a wide range of activities, forms of interpersonal relationships, and distinct subcultures which may or may not fit well into the original three intended categories. With an ethos of "your kink is OK!" many BDSM communities welcome anyone with a non-normative streak who identifies with the community; this may include cross-dressers, extreme body mod enthusiasts, animal players, latex or rubber aficionados, and others.
