    it is completely legal! i'm not sure exactly what is and isn't allowed, but it is legal, and very profitable

    Almost all dommes -unless part time dommes within a relationship- are non-sex.

    I'll see if i can find some more specifcs.

      ok did find this:

      Is BDSM against the law?

      This is a difficult question to answer. It has to be yes, and no. A police
      operation named "Operation Spanner" targetted a group of gay and bisexual
      BDSMers in the early nineties, because they mistook a home movie of their
      activities to be a snuff film. When the case came to court, the men pleaded
      not guilty to charges of causing actual bodily harm on the grounds that they
      had all consented to the activities. The prosecution could not get any of the
      men to say it had been non-consensual, and had even tried threatening the
      "subs" with aiding and abetting actual bodily harm, as they had asked for
      these things to be done to them. Nevertheless, the judge decided that consent
      was not a valid defense, and with no other availiable defense, the men were
      found guilty. A campaign group (Countdown On Spanner) quickly appeared and
      started to make a lot of noise about this, and the case went to appeal. The
      appeal failed, and it went to the Law Lords. The Law Lords upheld the original
      judgement, but did recommend that the law be changed, and noted that the
      definition of Actual Bodily Harm by then had changed so much that the
      original prosecution would not have gone through.

      The case only refers to activities, such as whipping or caning, that leave
      marks. Any mark which is "of more than a trifling or transient nature" is
      currenlty against the law. The only way to test this, however, is to have
      another court case. A case cannot go ahead without evidence (the marks
      themselves are not enough, they have to prove how they were gained) and so
      unless you have videotapes, and someone gives one to the police, you are
      probably safe... The case makes no mention to the legal status of consensual
      bondage, humiliation, roleplay, fetishism, watersports, or any other BDSM
      activities except those which mark.
