Wax play is:

a form of sensual play involving warm or hot wax usually dripped from candles or ladled onto a person's naked skin.

Paraffin therapy is:
a veritable way to speed healing and soothe muscle and joint pain. It soothes and moisturizes the skin by increasing the blood supply to the area being treated. It opens pores, increases circulation, and promotes a sense of calm in the patient. Paraffin therapy reduces pain and stiffness around joints by removing excess fluid from surrounding tissue while providing lubrication.

BDSM is:
a consensual lifestyle choice, or type of adult roleplay between two or more individuals. The compound acronym, BDSM, is derived from the terms bondage and discipline (B&D), dominance and submission (D&S), sadism and masochism (S&M). The idea of consent of both the partners is essential.
