Safewords & BDSM Nuances Sunny Megatron Podcast ep 194 cover art American Sex PodcastIn episode 194 of American Sex Podcast, Sunny Megatron continues her deep dive into the murky, messy, nuances of kink. She examines some of the most popular kink “rules” pertaining to consent & safewords and the grey areas that cause community friction:

  • “Never renegotiate during a scene”
  • “Expect your partner to use a safeword if there’s a problem”
  • “Never do heavy impact without a warm-up”
  • “Safewords can be abused”
  • “Safewords are for sex and BDSM”

This episode will help you diversify what’s in your consent toolbox, assess risks in intimate situations, evaluate exceptions to BDSM rules, differentiate personal preferences from useful & inclusive best practices, and more.
