How to react when your partner is giving you signs that they aren’t fully consenting - A guide by Ramona
I like it when cats settle down and it looks like they don’t have any limbs
…and if you ever wondered what they look like from underneath when doing that:

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY || OFFICIAL TRAILER
You’re fucking joking
Look how they tried to make this abusive piece of shit sexy.
After this shit is released, expect a flood of expecting subs who don’t know that it’s abuse and more fake Doms preying on them.
Yep. A flood of defensive posts, a flood of drama, a flood of exuberant basement dwelling shitdicks given new fuel in their predation. A flood of fucked up shit all around, a flood of teenaged girls who will grow up romanticizing this sort of thing.
Fuck. Like I know the book is trash. I know the former beta, back when it was just online fanfic who hates it with all her heart because the author refused to listen to her speak about BDSM. I’ve attempted the read the horseshit and failed before the third sentence.
I think listener-blue and I should see this trainwreck.
Bdsm community, you’ve got a big storm coming.
I just hope audiences will stop to listen to people who are actually a part of the BDSM community when we say, “THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS.”
As a sub, I am very protective of other subs, and I don’t want any of them to think that this kind of relationship is healthy. BDSM is safe, sane, and consensual: always. If it isn’t, it’s abuse. Fifty Shades is about abuse, plain and simple. I don’t care what the author calls it; it—is—abuse.
Please, please, please, if you are thinking of joining the BDSM community, do not use Fifty Shades as a tutorial or a guide. Talk to people in the community. Don’t let yourself be beguiled and bamboozled by abusive people masquerading as doms. Don’t let anyone tell you that Fifty Shades is an accurate representation of BDSM. Don’t let anyone tell you that BDSM is abuse.
Talk to us. Come to us. Let us help you.

Selections from ‘Rituals’, by Noorann Matties
Forced to examine ourselves in ways many normally avoid, Rituals as a project sought to capture the moment in which we our lives become devoid of distraction and we become intimately aware of ourselves. By photographing people’s personal beauty rituals I attempted to capture this awareness, this intimacy that occurs only when one is forced to examine their own body, the most basic thing that is theirs, and build upon it.
