Sexual Freedom For the BDSM Community

Our Sexual Freedom

I have always been aware that there were laws that weren’t conducive to the BDSM lifestyle.20150228_003413 To the extent I was not fully aware. Last week I stumbled on an article about a federal court ruling in Virginia involving a BDSM case. This interested me a great deal and inspired me to dig a little deeper. BDSM is not considered a consensual sexual act between adults. It is considered criminal assault.

How it Can Go Down Hill…..

Consider this… You and your partner have a little scene and there is some bruising around the wrists. This can easily happen and has happened with me. It was not intentional bruising they just pulled a little hard on their cuffs. The bruising on the ass was. The next day your partner g1024px-Fetish_Barbie_at_Exxxotica_Miami_2009_(7)oes to work and a co-worker notices the bruises and instead of asking goes and reports it to the police. You are now facing assault and battery charges. On top of that you are facing illegal incarceration and an onslaught of other charges.

Consent Laws

You believe since your partner agreed to the scene and has no intentions to press charges that you are safe. You would be mistaken. The state can and will pick up the charges. But wait, there are laws of consent in place to protect us. You would be mistaken there too. The consent laws only pertain to athletics and medical practices. Basically your coach or gym trainer has more rights over your body than you do.
