Raging Chrysalis: The End of the Mute Submissive Masculine

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason. —Thomas Paine Kink, in exile: There has been an explosion around the topic of male submission. […]

Signal boost: “The Devaluation of Male Submission”

Reading sexual writing viscerally pains me these days. For a supposed “sex blogger,” this is a huge problem.
