#MythMonday: Consent in BDSM

We are excited to bring about a new weekly feature: #MythMonday! Each Monday we will post a quick myth around BDSM, sexuality, or gender then bust it and share more accurate information.

This week our myth is: BDSM is Dangerous

Consent in BDSM and kink is mandatory. One way that we ensure as safe and as pleasurable an experience as possible is by implementing safe words. These are words that would not typically be used within a sexual or erotic experience (like, pineapple or Massachusetts) to signify pausing or stopping play. A lot of folks also like to use a stoplight system (green for it’s all good/keep going; yellow to slow down, pause, or adjust; red to stop play completely). These methods of checking in with one another along with pre-scene negotiation, discussion of limits, boundaries, experience, as well as after care are just some of the ways we try to minimize danger in BDSM.
