The Seven Deadly Sins of Kink

Apologies to those whose religion (Catholicism or Old Guard or Militant Feminism or whatever you choose) is offended by the following. Be glad, though; if this bother you, this is probably not the blog for you.

  1. Apathy
  2. Jealousy
  3. Hubris
  4. Fluids
  5. Pouting
  6. Gossip
  7. Interruption

Obviously these are only my own interpretation, and yes, there are exceptions to everything (I know, I know, some people are fluid bonded, and I don’t think anyone would mind being interrupted by Midori, and where’s non-consent?).

Actually, I’ll address that last one. Non-consent is not a deadly sin of kink because doing kinky things non-consensually is not kink, it’s assault, battery, rape, harassment, abuse, etc. There are other words for that kind of thing. It’s not kink. Whether you’re part of the “Safe, sane, consensual” crowd, or like me subscribe to “Risk-Aware Consensual Kink”, consent is a given.

No, the deadly sins are things that when not addressed become the buzz-killers of a fun scene, a fun playspace, or a relationship. Not that I’m saying you can’t do them – hell, I certainly have – but it’s when you’re jealous and you wallow in it, or you have the fluid spill and you don’t take care of it, or you do any of the things and don’t actually take the time to fix them…well, that’s deadly, in my opinion.

Yours may vary. Let me know what you think. Flamers will be given pie.
