Kink is exciting. It has definitely opened up new realms of possibility for us. Having said that, it really highlights the importance of consent, communication, and most of all TRUST with the partners you are engaging with. This is amplified when you are disabled (and otherwise marginalized). We are joined again by Roxanne Chanel Murray to unpack these ideas.
In an upcoming episode with Mistress Magenta and Sara Youngblood Gregory (10/17/2020, Ep. 105, Realm 8), we discuss "breath play" and kink (among other things).
This conversation brought up painful memories of the death of Daana's friend Kelly Dwyer in October 2013. It is believed that Kelly was killed while engaging in breath play and kinky sex with a manipulative, deceitful, and dangerous (unbeknownst to her) partner -- a sociopathic predator -- a person who later dumped her body in the woods after her death.

Reflecting on Kelly's death really puts the concepts of trust and safety into perspective.
This episode is in memory of Kelly Dwyer.
