asks:
What safety measures should follow someone who wants to start doing bondage/rope play?

pervocracy:

This is not a complete list, but:

  • Talk beforehand about limits and physical limitations—ask about injuries or bad joints.
  • Don’t use stretchy rope or fabric to tie; it can tighten more than intended and be hard to untie.
  • Make sure you always have a means to cut the rope in an emergency.  (If someone faints or panics in bondage, cutting them out right away is important; don’t take the time to untie.)  A lot of kinksters use EMT shears for this; you can get them in drugstores or online for less than $10.
  • Learn your knots and know which ones will tighten down if pulled on.  Knots on limbs need to not be super-tight so they don’t constrict nerves or blood vessels.
  • If you put rope around someone’s neck (e.g., in a chest or body harness), make sure there’s no pressure on the front of their neck and nothing that could tighten around their neck.
  • Don’t leave a bound person alone.
  • Suspension is particularly risky; make sure you’ve really learned this in detail (preferably in person) before trying it.
  • Check in often and see how your partner is doing throughout the scene.

There’s some more information here (Google Docs format).

Edge of Night by Billy Boyd from the album: LotR

I maintain that this is one of the most beautiful, haunting songs I have ever heard… and yet I hardly see anyone singing the praises of Billy Boyd. So here is an appreciation post for him. You have a lovely voice, sir.

EDIT: I’ve learned from many of you since posting this that Mr. Boyd actually wrote the melody to this song himself. One more reason to appreciate his amazing talent! Thank you to those who taught me something new. ^_^

THIS IS A NATURALLY OCCURRING METAL WHAT

metal as fuck

This is a pure bismuth crystal. The heaviest element that is not radioactive (ok technically it is but it’s half life is like 9 orders of magnitude older than the universe so it really doesn’t count.) Probably my favourite crystal structure, even if you forget the colour. Surprisingly, bismuth is also super-not-toxic. You can actually eat the stuff and it’s often in indigestion remedies. Fascinating element, all round.

asks:
slightly off-topic (hope you're not stressed from what the last anon sent) but since there's inherently an element of coercion in bdsm, can some people/couples opt out of using safe words and establishing limits? is there a subcategory in the bdsm community that permits that?

pervocracy:

I don’t agree that there is inherently an element of coercion.  There can be an agreed degree of play-coercion, but there can also be BDSM where nothing whatsoever is coercive.  If I say “hit me” and my boyfriend says “sure,” there’s no coercion element there, any more than if I said “give me a backrub” and he said “sure.”  (If I say “hold me down and hit me,” that would be more sort of coercive-y, although even then, it’s still something we discussed and that I can end.)

"Opting out" of establishing limits is a terrible idea.  Because what most people who say that are thinking is "no limits, but obviously they wouldn’t do something really unacceptable and no fun for me, like cut all my hair off and replace it with an elaborate tattoo of an eggplant.”

Whatever your idea of “well, obviously we wouldn’t do that” is, that is your limit and things will be less eggplanty (or other, less humorous but likelier and equally unwanted things) if you establish it, and/or if you can safeword when you see them getting the clippers and purple tattoo ink.

I do get the sexual appeal of “there’s no getting off this rollercoaster,” but playing without limits doesn’t always take you to “I couldn’t ask for this but I wanted it.”  Sometimes it’s a direct train to “I actually didn’t want this at all.”

Yes, there are subcultures that glamorize the idea of doing stuff without limits and safewords.  I’m not referring you to any.  They’re incredibly awful and dangerous.
