Using the Safe Word as a Weapon
We see it all the time. “sub has the power because safe word!” or “sub has the power because can stop play at any time.”
Okay…I have some questions that stem from the many repetitious discussions on safe words that I see on a daily basis on this site.
- WHY is your partner your enemy who must be beaten in all things?
- Why is your partner such a foe that he/she must be held at bay every minute by the power of your consent and the threat of…of what, exactly?
If you don’t obey my safe word, then I’m going to…what? What are you going to do? Call the police? Nope, you won’t call the police. They almost never call the police, do they. They don’t file reports. They don’t prosecute.
So what do they do? Drag their partner through the mud of the court of public opinion on whatever social websites you have profiles on.
Which brings me to…
- Why are you using the concept of the safe word as a weapon against your own partner?
- If your partner is such an enemy and you cannot trust them to communicate when something is amiss, why the fuck are you with that person in the first damn place?
