Day 11: What are your views on the ethics of kink?
Initially, I was going to postpone writing on this topic as it seemed a little too heavy in my sleep deprived state. But that’s changed, so here goes.
The ethics of kink don’t seem overly complicated. As far as I’m concerned, it boils down to this: respect, honesty and communication. Respect your partner(s) and yourself, be honest and don’t stop talking to each other. If you feel unable to respect the person you’re involved with at the time as an individual, completely separate from your designations as Grand High Poobah and lowly serf, what business do you have engaging in physically and emotionally risky activities with them? The same goes for honesty and communication. Can’t tell them the truth? Or think you can’t safely express when something’s too much to handle or not enough? Don’t play/scene/fuck/whatever with them.
TLDR; awkwardly worded prompt. Ethics= Treat your kinky partner and yourself with respect, don’t lie and talk to each other.
