On episode 147 we talk with Bekah Rose about abuse in the kink community and in kink relationships. How do we most effectively deal with habitual abusers in our spaces? Is it always possible to make room for people that abuse to change and heal? What are the most common types of abuse we see within the kink community? In intimate relationships why is it so hard to spot subtle abusive tactics like gaslighting and emotional manipulation? How can we better support others who are experiencing this? What’s the difference between a consent violation and consent failure? Abuse is present in every community and has the potential to perpetrated by anyone in any type of relationship. This is episode required listening no matter what community you belong to.
