And one of the most damaging and fallacious assumptions of that era was that women were inherently non-violent, bdsm questions lesbian relationships offered a haven from abuse, that simply because our partnerships and projects were founded by women, we were creating revolutionary spaces. As one of the few out lesbian shelter workers for a hundred miles, I was a magnet for lesbians suffering emotional, bdsm questions, and sexual violence in their relationships.

And they were many. Enter my life in the BDSM communities. For the past two decades, I have been fortunate to find skilled Doms who could attend to my deepest longings by creating transformative, cathartic sexual exchanges. Sometimes for years. As a survivor of violence, I wrote and spoke as often as I could about the healing paradoxes embedded in BDSM practices. So, I frame this having experienced tremendous love and healing in BDSM relationships and with great love and respect: BDSM communities are as violent as any of our communities.

We are as violent as political lesbian feminists. As violent as vanilla, monogamous married heterosexuals. We are as violent as evangelical Christians which some of us are. For some of us, our experience with openness and healthy negotiation will flag these deceptive posers early in the connecting process.

For others, these charmers will pass all of our testing and limit-setting hurdles, and hook into some of our most defining vulnerabilities before we recognize the dangerous terrain we are in. I once said that dealing with lesbians who were violent to other lesbians broke my heart like nothing else. But finding myself on abusive ground with a queer Dom to whom I had offered the very keys to the tenderest chambers of my spirit -— this took me much longer to recover from.

Perhaps it was because the abuse happened later in life, when I was fully formed, an anti-violence movement veteran, a respected professional. But I actually think that the deep crevices of our wounding that BDSM engages -— these are sacred territories. Abuse can happen anywhere. Anyone can draw upon the language and rituals of beautiful, revolutionary projects and twist them for their basest, most degrading purposes.

How can we protect ourselves? How can we tell? Unfortunately, there is no singular formula for violence prevention, but I will present my own insights having emerged from the abyss. I offer these caveats for myself as much as anyone else. Good s: They are self-reflective and self-critical about their prior experiences and relationships. They remain curious, open, and thoughtful. They have no self-analysis or critique of themself in difficult situations. Good s: They are excited when you use a safeword, never disappointed. They recognize that you invoking a bdsm questions is bdsm questions about them, their abilities, or their desires.

Bad s: The opposite.

Abusive tops may do the same. Good s: A great BDSM partner will listen to where your edges are and what you want to explore and find ways to carry you into that territory from whatever position they are in, whether top, bottom, or switch. They will play with that edge and really, really take you in. Bad s: A dangerous BDSM player is more likely to take you to this edge prematurely, to prove something about themself.

And once there, they may play out a set of acts or rituals that have worked for them before, resulting in not being fully present to you or your experience. You end up thinking the problem is you. Good s: They have reverence for your service. They perform appreciative and thoughtful actions in the wake bdsm questions your spectacular submission.

Bad s: There is a lack of acknowledgement of your submissive gifts. You find commentary about bottoms within a circle of tops that is degrading, and not in the consensual, lovely ways of degradation that have been carefully negotiated.

Abusers count on your isolation. Loyalty means that you will not question their parenting, their expenditures of family resources, or how they spend their time. Loyalty means you will not express fear of their driving. Loyalty means silence. To themselves? To others? Then you can count on it that they are lying to you. Do they stonewall and punish you for catching them in lies? Over time, it causes us to question and lose faith in ourselves.

Any partner, in any community, who finds your friends problematic, not political enough, not BDSM savvy, no fun to hang bdsm questions -— is a danger to you. Shannon notes that even casual friendships are better than none, and close friendships can be life-saving. The point is to stay connected. I am incredibly fortunate to have amazing friends who all worried about me when I was with the Great Dom. They worried about how little they saw of me and that some of my key values seemed to be ebbing away.

I appeared frazzled and in pain much of the time, despite reporting Great Happiness. My health suffered, my career suffered. My friends mirrored these truths to me patiently, prayed to their various gods and goddesses, and hung in there through a lot of circular and eventually desperate conversations. Finally, I got out. I hope you will too, if you need to.
