Well, the new Fifty Shades movie is out. And again, it’s causing controversy. I read a post where someone was stating that BDSM is just a form of cover-up for abuse. While this might be true in some cases, it’s not true in all cases. Remember there is a fine line between BDSM and abuse and that line is mutual consent. And mutual consent is the agreement between two individuals of what type of play will be done and how it is done. Anything outside the agreement is and can be considered abuse.
But my problem with the Fifty Shades series it the fact that they never mention or promote education, safety or consent. They just show people having fun with various BDSM activities.
By showing this like they do, they are telling individuals that they can just go do this. This is wrong. Any type of play in the BDSM community must be accompanied by education. You MUST know what you are doing. Failure to do so will cause issues and problems.
I knew of a couple here in town who decided to do a scene without being educated and the scene went bad, he lost control, she got damaged and they got a divorce.
As I have said before, educate, educate, educate. Because if you go see the Fifty Shades of Freedom know that by being educated THAT is what will give you the freedom to explore and enjoy the wonderful world of kink. l
