Sully Brayshaw s meet for women has been relocated from Brisbane to Gold Coast to cater to a new group of Murwillumbah and Tweed-based BDSM fans.

ADULT shop owner Sully Bradshaw has had to move a meet for women into bondage, domination, sadism, and masochism (BDSM) from Brisbane to the Gold Coast to cater for the growing number of Tweed fans who are coming out after hit movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

"I put a call out for women to get together for Subs Day Out, which is basically a day at a restaurant for the girls, and got a huge response from Murwillumbah saying they wanted to come because they had nothing down there," the owner of Beautifully Bound said.

Answering Ms Bradshaw's call was Murwillumbah submissive - commonly shortened to sub - Zena Amazonia, who runs an educational group on Facebook called Australia New Zealand BDSM 101.

Zena said joining a community was important because Fifty Shades has sparked safety concerns among BDSM devotees.

"We are grateful that BDSM has been brought out into the open more and is not so much the taboo subject it once was, but don't want people rushing out to buy rope and start tying their partner up with no idea of proper rope work, how to tie the knots and quick release methods," Zena said.

"Same goes with flogging your partner. Healthy BDSM relationships take care of each other's needs and mental health.

"BDSM is all about consent. Safety words are to be honoured.

"You must be aware of medical conditions and aftercare is important.

"If the proper research and preparedness is not taken, there is the obvious risk of injury and also mental health."

She said to be safe online and to be wary of "predators" and "wannabe fakes" and suggested Fetlife.com and a "munch" - a get together in a vanilla (normal) setting for a chat.

"Always have a safety plan when meeting someone the first time, for example someone to call and let know you are okay."

The Tweed Daily News recently revealed local cinemas, bookstores and adult shops were enjoying a boost in sales because of the film.
