Drugs and BDSM

(THIS POST APPLIES TO MORE THAN JUST WEED) 

I personally enjoy drugs. Seriously. 😅 Many people do and some of those folks happen to be kinksters. Furthermore, some kinksters will use drugs in congress with their love of BDSM for numerous reasons. I get it. Maybe you want to alter the sensations from your kinky experience. Perhaps you have anxiety in relation to new people and kinky spaces.

I, however, do think that mindfulness should be especially practiced when this subject comes about. No act in this world is inherently without risk. It is my belief that the margin for risk increases exponentially where drugs are involved. Drugs alter sensation, behavior, perception and more.

If drug use is planned:

  • Negotiate BEFORE you partake of the aforementioned drugs. Do this on a prolonged basis. I personally have had negotiations over weeks if necessary.
  • Ask people about their behaviors when on said drug
  • If possible, ask them if they have any references for people they’ve played with while altered and speak with them
  • Check-in more regularly ON ALL SIDES during scenes so that people stay engaged and present 

Why? 🤔

  • Drugs can alter what consent and inhibition look like.
  • Can create a power dynamic in relation to consent especially if one is more versed in taking a particular drug or if one person is sober
  • Drugs WILL alter the sensations of all play. Your judgment towards what you feel is compromised.
  • The way you perceive a scene as a whole may be different from if you were sober. A seemingly positive experience may actually be very negative.
  • Drug use can be leveraged and used against or for someone in instances of consent violations.

Also, if you’re high af and about to play with someone you’ve never played with before, TELL THEM. Informed consent is a thing.

I just want y’all to do what you love and be as safe as possible. This is why it is important to stay risk-informed and aware.

❤️ Stay Kinky. Be good.
