something that either partner in a BDSM relationship will not do, or does not like. Basically, a specific preference concerning BDSM play. The submissive's Limits should always take precedence over the Dominant's. Limits should always be discussed and set out before a Scene ever starts. Respecting Limits is not an option, it's a requirement.
In BDSM, this refers to an activity or fetish that a person will refuse to participate in; in D/s, it refers to the same as BDSM, but a much larger scope, extending to everyday life (for instance, refusing to allow a Dominant to choose clothing). Limits are often a topic of discussion between Doms and subs who may potentially engage in a relationship, defining the types and degrees of limits. Hard limits are limits that are firm, and not mutable with circumstance; soft limits are negotiable under certain circumstances.

In music, a limit is a degree of harmonic complexity based on pitches’ relationships in “just intonation,” a system of tuning intervals with minimal harmonic “beating.” Such pitches vibrate in relation to each other in ways that parallel those of the harmonic series. In the harmonic series, a fundamental pitch is accompanied by overtones, which form a composite sound that results in a sound’s timbre.
