Do you use safewords?
Here is a definition of a safeword for those that are interested.
We don't use them. Really we believe in good old fashioned communication. A safeword to me, is not enough to keep a person out of trouble. Communication of exactly what is going on can help along with observation and just checking to see how your partner is doing.
It isn't that I am against them...we just feel good old fashioned communication works better. Before Master when I had a few play partners -- I didn't use a safeword either and opted for communication if something was not going well.
Some have said that if we don't have a safeword -- well he will be able to hack off your toes and my answer to that is even with a safeword he probably would hack off my toes if he was the sort to hack off toes. A safeword isn't going to protect me from someone that would already do something beyond what is okay.
If you have a question please feel free to email me or leave a comment.
