BDSM Feministing

14 Mar

I keep hearing this refrain. I keep hearing from feminists how conflicted they feel about this.

As far as I’m concerned feminism is about being free to take what you want and turn down what you aren’t interested in (much like this TERRIFIC story about olives). And the big secret is that people love seeing how close they can get to something without actually touching it. Like getting your nose inches from a particularly textural painting at a museum. You almost want to rub your hand over the whole thing but you gain a lot of enjoyment from the sensation of just barely not touching it as well. Or walking down the street with your crush and letting the back of your hands brush every once in a while, seeing if they’ll take the bait. That rush.

It’s just a different kind of feel-good game.

As long as what you’re doing is consensual it isn’t a conflict of interest.
