The Advocate published 30 Kinky Terms Every Gay Man Needs to Know, a series of photos and one-paragraph definitions of many common Leather/BDSM/Fetish words and phrases.
While some of the definitions may be a little off, or seem like they were written by an outsider, it is worth a read. Take note that it is presumably written for vanillafolk and/or beginners, and seems tame in some cases.
Some of the photos and graphics are hot. Determining which ones are hot and which are meh is entirely up to the reader/viewer.
The first gay publication I ever set eyes on was a copy the first issue of The Advocate back in 1969-70 in my college dorm.
Here's a sample - "Sub/Submissive - Every particular Dom-sub (typically shortened to D/s) relationship has a slightly different power dynamic, but the sub/submissive is always the one who relinquishes control to the Dominant...."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK, NY; February 11, 2016 - CineKink has announced that S&M SALLY will be the "CineKink Season Opener" selection for its thirteenth annual film festival, CineKink NYC, running March 1-6, 2016.
The comedy, which has had a hugely popular run on the film festival circuit, follows a lesbian couple as they explore the underground world of BDSM. Identifying as the butch one in a traditional butch/femme couple, Jamie, aka the pseudonymous "Sally," assumes she will take the dominant role in their escapades, with Jill as her submissive, but Jill has ideas of her own. Meanwhile, friends David and Lola compete to see who's cool enough to go through with a polyamorous, bisexual threesome.
"I'm thrilled for S&M SALLY's NYC premiere to be at CineKink," said director Michelle Ehlen, who also stars in the film. "In setting out to do a character-driven comedy about BDSM, I wanted to make the film both authentic and realistic to those a part of the kink community, as well as accessible and relatable to those outside of it."
S&M SALLY will screen on Wednesday, March 2, 7:00 PM at Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Avenue, NYC), where the majority of the festival's screenings are also unfolding. The program will also include TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES OF INTIMACY, from director Joel Moffett, starring Buck Angel and Marianna Marroquin as a trans-man and a trans-woman trying to salvage their romantic relationship via new sexual horizons.
CineKink NYC kicks off the previous evening, Tuesday, March 1, with a gala fundraising kick-off party at Taj Lounge (48 W. 21st St., NYC), and runs through Sunday, March 6, concluding with an awards ceremony and an AfterGlow closing party.
