Very good advice. Particularly numbers eight, nine and ten. BDSM is a subculture that is inviting to predators and fringe elements of society who have different respect for other people’s boundaries. There are a lot of really great, amazing people in the scene but there are plenty of others who are looking to take advantage of others, from both sides of the whip. Watch your ass out there, gang, and be safe! Remember, you have all the power when it comes to you and your life, no matter what role in a power exchange relationship you may identify with.
This is a good read and important rules if you want to play with people you don’t know.
