BDSM Rights

Free Prior and Informed Consent
Photo credit: PinkMoose

We support the informed consent principle:

BDSM requires the freely given informed consent of all participants; participants should make genuine efforts to reach a shared awareness of risks and consequences; if consent is given under duress or is invalidated by mental incapacity or intoxication then it is not legitimate; and BDSM with this informed consent should not be criminalised or lead to discrimination.

Informedconsent.co.uk was the UK website that created a sense of community for UK BDSM people. It was immensely successful in this and many regret its passing. It has ceased to work in this way (but great alternatives exist – take a look at Fetbook and Kinklink).

The owner of Informedconsent is repurposing things to create a site that supports BDSM Activism. That is emerging as http://www.informedconsent.org.uk , described thus:

Informed Consent promotes the concept of “BDSM Rights”: the belief that people whose sexuality or relationship preferences include Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, or Sadism and Masochism (“BDSM”) deserve the same human rights as everyone else, and should not be discriminated against for pursuing BDSM with informed, consenting adults.

We hope all who read this will support this new site.
