This! Safely practiced BDSM is -not- abuse.
that’s it, that’s literally it. Meaning also if you are with a Dom that says ‘no negotiation, no safeword’ you’re likely actually in an abusive relationship.
Safe, sane, consensual. That’s BDSM.

So, it seems the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon has claimed some of its first victims. People have already died because of unsafe BDSM practices copied off this poor excuse of a book. So, to any of the people here who might have an interest in BDSM, let me beg you to at the very, very least, never forget the following:
“No kind of sensation is keener and more active than pain - it’s impressions are unmistakable.”
~ Marquis De Sade
