Day 17: What misconception about kinky people would you most like to clear up?
I have heard many misconceptions about kinky people or people in BDSM. I have heard so many negative comments about kink/BDSM. “It causes people to have to seek out counseling; people get hurt; it’s all sadist and evil that goes on…” Yes, I am so totally serious! People that have no idea and have only heard the negative about the kink/BDSM lifestyle think the absolute worst.
It makes me cringe to know that those not educated in the lifestyle have no clue what it is about and have a fear for it because it is unknown and not understood. And yes, don’t get me wrong, there are “bad” sides to it if handled incorrectly or in the extreme/harsher side of things. But, that is why SSC (Safe, Sane and Consensual) is such an important part of the lifestyle. And knowing and understanding what you are getting into and who you are getting into it with.
So, I am hoping with all the bloggers and writers that are sharing their experiences and able to talk freely about these things are correcting the majority of misconceptions regarding kink and BDSM. There is such a great supportive community that we have for support and information available.
