what is simple bind?

I had some troubles getting ldapadd to authenticate
with slapd (Im using SASL/TSL) and I posted to this
list.  I was told to use -x for simple bind (which
worked) however I am curious.

What is simple bind?  What difference does it make? 
I've read the FAQ and I used the ldapadd command
syntax as described there, (which didn't work) however
it did not mention -x (simple bind) at all.

Thank you for everyone's time and help!
