Here is a powerful VIDEO from our SayNOtoSadomasochism YouTube channel! It addresses the parallels between BDSM and George Orwell’s 1984.

It’s by our new anti-BDSM ally and collaboration partner RepublicofSandals, who does a great job explaining how sadomasochism exemplifies the contradictions, double-think and insanity found in “1984.”

To sum it up, BDSM is SEXUAL ABUSE and a form of OPPRESSION. It is NOT any form of love, freedom, liberation, play, or healthy sexuality.

Please watch it and share your thoughts! Let us know if you agree. Thanks! 🙂

Practicing BDSM often leads to SEVERE ABUSE: A mentally disabled teen girl was imprisoned, trafficked and tortured — for SIX YEARS — by a couple who pimped her out for profit to other sadists for their sick sexual pleasure.

First she was groomed with pornography, as is often the case with sexual abuse victims:

    “She described how the Bagleys initially showed her images and videos of people practicing bondage, dominance, sadism and masochism — or BDSM — and told her it was fun. She signed a contract on her 18th birthday that Bagley said made her his sex slave for life.”

    Then she was imprisoned and tortured — sometimes for just for personal gratification, and sometimes being pimped out or turned into live pornography so others could take sexual pleasure in her suffering:

    “The girl allegedly suffered water-boarding, electric shock, piercing and mutilation, according to the Kansas City Star.

    Four other men have been charged for allegedly paying Bagley to have sex with his ‘slave’ and to watch webcam sessions of her being tortured.”

Clearly sadomasochism, pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking are all very closely related, and if one is against any one of them, one needs to take a stand against ALL of them.

READ THE REST of this tragic story that demonstrates the truly horrific harms of pornography and sadomasochism. WARNING – GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING!

Gail Dines shares how the reported abuse by disgraced Canadian radio host Jian Ghomeshi was likely fueled by porn culture. NOTE: Ghomeshi was and is into sadomasochism.

    The “partners” tell a very different story. According to an article in Slate, three women interviewed by the Toronto Star “allege that Ghomeshi physically attacked them on dates without their consent. They allege that he struck them with a closed fist or open hand; bit them; choked them until they almost passed out; covered their noses and mouths so that they had difficulty breathing; and that they were verbally abused during and after sex.”

    I wish I could say that these types of assaults are news to me, but I have seen thousands of porn scenes that map out exactly the acts these women describe, and have interviewed hundreds of women who recount the same type of violence. Of course porn isn’t the only reason men assault women, but when you hear the same stories over and over again, from being choked till they almost pass out (and many of the women I interviewed have indeed passed out) to being verbally assaulted during the attack, then, as a sociologist, I have to ask: What “playbook” are these guys following?

———-

Correct! It is the “playbook” of the porn industry.

WOW. The University of Chicago is helping to fund some students’ memberships in a sadomasochism club. This is so wrong! In so many ways! Don’t you think?

    [The College Fix] — Some University of Chicago students may need to add whips, collars and handcuffs to their back-to-school shopping list.

    That’s because the elite private college’s Risk-Awareness Consensual Kink student club, affectionately known around campus as RACK, has plans to take field trips to the local kinky sex club.

    The visits are eyed for Galleria Domain 2, the windy city’s “place to explore and satisfy your fetish, kink, leather, and BDSM fantasies,” complete with “three rooms of unique, high quality BDSM furniture, two social areas, and a library,” the club’s website states.

    Well, at least it has a library, although I’m not sure how much reading goes on in there.

    On May 6, the University of Chicago’s Student Government Finance Committee voted 5-0 to approve $300 to help fund trial memberships for students to the club, described at the meeting as “Chicago’s biggest dungeon.”

    It was billed as an “opportunity to connect/engage with the broader Chicago kink community … (and) to engage in BDSM activities that are not suitable/appropriate for spaces that students have access to (i.e., in shared apartments or shared rooms),” according to the meeting’s minutes posted online.

    They may have a point. Flogging and electrocution might not play so well in the Max Palevsky Residential Commons.

———-

Right! But who knows, the way things are going, on-campus sexual torture just might be next! 0-0!

http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/18814/

——————–

~ It looks like this is not the first time that this University has supported sadomasochistic torture practices of their students:

    “In February, the campus hosted a “Taste of Kink” workshop as part of its annual Sex Week activities that allowed students to explore “the exchanges and sensations that can be generated by floggers, rope, electricity and more,” the agenda stated.”

Right! Because sexual sadism, masochism and torture should be part of every students’ formal education! (NOT.)

We encourage everyone to write to the University of Chicago and share their concerns/opinions/objections to allowing and funding this sort of abuse and harmful “education” of their students!

http://www.uchicago.edu/contact

———-

As for other universities…

    “The University of Chicago is not alone in its student sexual exploration. Harvard University has a club called MUNCH that caters to students who like “alternative sexuality and kink.” So does Columbia University. The University of Michigan recently hosted a BDSM tutorial.

    In years past at Yale’s Sex Weeks, they have included everything from sadomasochistic porn screenings to sex toy demonstrations to live nudity in the classroom.”

~ Ouch! We’re not sure how or why the parents of these students are allowing this, or why the U.S. government approves loans for young people to “study” and support sadomasochism and abusive sex, but we sincerely hope that concerned parents, professors, students and others speak up to the appropriate parties to help end this insanity.

    “As for these colleges’ Bondage, Dominance, Sadism and Masochism events, they unfold against the backdrop of “50 Shades of Grey,” the soft-porn book sensation (and pending Hollywood hit) that helped normalize painful sex.

    If behavior modification is the goal, there’s a captive audience at universities (pardon the pun).”

Here’s evidence that shows that “Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t just “harmless fantasy.” It fuels real life sadomasochism and prostitution. ~~~

[TRPWL] – Sheri’s Ranch, the legal brothel and sex resort located outside of Las Vegas, has seen an increased interest in its BDSM services since the release of the book Fifty Shades of Grey in 2011, and anticipates an even greater interest with the release of the film adaptation in early 2015.

The massive success of E. L. James “mommy porn” series has resulted in a 5% boost in bookings of the brothel’s BDSM suite, where courtesans provide, among other things, introductory training in sadomasochistic erotic acts involving dominance and submission.

Dena, the brothel’s madam, directly attributes this jump in BDSM reservations to the book’s success, since more and more women are enquiring about the services.

“It’s not a coincidence that more women and couples between the ages of 35 and 50 are booking our dungeon room. The 50 Shades of Grey book has introduced many women to bondage and discipline, and a percentage of those readers would like to act on their interests. Sheri’s provides a safe and private environment for women to experiment with the world of BDSM, and we anticipate the film will generate even more curiosity.”

“The trailer for the film adaptation of the Fifty Shades of Grey book became the most watched trailer of the year in less than one week. If the trailer is any indication, this film will have an even greater effect on our business than the book had,” said Dena.

——————–

Well, there you have it folks! The book and film are indeed “just fiction”, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t impact real people’s behavior in real life.

“Fifty Shades” actually DOES influence people to engage in REAL LIFE SADISM AND MASOCHISM — and sometimes prostitution — in addition to bondage, discipline, domination and submission. (All of the practices that the acronym “BDSM” stands for.)

So, the next time you hear someone saying, “It’s just a book!”, or “It’s just a movie!”, feel free to share this post with them…

Here’s a TRULY HORRIFIC story about a young woman murdered during a photo shoot which then turned into a *SNUFF* shoot.

WARNING!!!! EXTREMELY DISTURBING CONTENT!!!

DO NOT READ IF YOU AREN’T WILLING TO BE VERY DISTURBED AND POSSIBLY TRAUMATIZED!!

[Daily Mail] — The parents of a teenager murdered by a friend who was obsessed with violent internet porn told yesterday of their anger at how easy it is to find extreme content online.

Georgia Williams, 17, agreed to pose for Jamie Reynolds with a rope around her neck for a ‘fantasy photoshoot’, but he left her hanging and took photographs of her as she died.

Yesterday, her parents Lynette, 52, and Stephen, 58, a detective constable, spoke for the first time about the role extreme pornography played in their daughter’s murder.

They said Reynolds, now 23, had been viewing depraved acts online even as their daughter, who attended college with him, walked to his home 90 minutes before she died.

The heartbroken couple, who have another daughter, Scarlett, 23, want measures against the kind of material that fuelled Reynolds’s fantasies.

Mrs Williams said: ‘Something has to be done about internet porn. I was so naive – I had no idea how easy it is to go on the internet and find the kind of extreme pornography that Reynolds was accessing. It’s horrendous.

‘Worst of all, men, including Reynolds, are re-enacting what they see online.’
