Busting BDSM Myths and Misconceptions

This episode is completely inspired by a few Twitter threads/conversations we’ve seen recently, mostly by kink educator Ignixia. She’s been tackling some serious misconceptions in BDSM, and that got us thinking about the things we know people believe — and some of what we used to believe, too.

In this episode:

  • Reminder: mini-episode, live stream, Discord
  • Announcement: The Friday podcast episode/live stream will be on hiatus until the week of May 20.
  • Announcement: The Patreon Live Q&A for May will be rescheduled to some time after our upcoming move.
  • Safewords/safety
    • You always have to have a safe word;
    • Safe words are all that matter;
    • All you need is safe, sane, and consensual
  • Dominance
    • All Doms are strong
    • Doms shouldn’t show emotion;
    • Don’t get too attached to your submissive partner
  • Submission
    • All subs are needy;
    • Subs must be guided;
    • Submission is always sexual;
    • Submission is always about serving
  • BDSM/kinky fuckery
    • Must love pain;
    • If you’re not into fuckery, you can’t be into power exchange;
    • Bondage always involves rope;
    • If you don’t love all pain, you can’t call yourself a masochist;
    • All Doms are sadists;
    • You can’t be a Dom and bottom in kink;
    • You can’t be a sub and top in kink
  • Miscellaneous:
    • All Caregiver/little dynamics involve age play;
    • I shouldn’t have to tell my Dom anything, they should just know;
    • Woman or men are ALWAYS dominant;
    • You must have fetishgear, leather, latex to be kinky
