Domestic abuse should not be confused with consensual BDSM. The webmaster abhors domestic violence, abuse, and rape. This document includes several links, a list of mostly local resources, and a statement from the Lesbian Sex Mafia (LSM).

I had trouble naming this section of my web site. Originally I wanted to name it "BDSM vs. Abuse." to make the point that consensual BDSM is distinct from domestic violence. But that would have implied that the two were mutually exclusive. As much as our community largely abhors domestic violence, abuse, and rape, the unpleasant truth is abuse has been and still is an issue in our community. That must be acknowleged and addressed. So I renamed it "Abuse or BDSM."

Most recently I changed the name to simply "Abuse." Since the title of the web site includes the term "BDSM," including it in the name of the section is redundant.

Interior of a forbidden gothic dungeon. All of Blue Beard's previous wives are trapped in cages.  Blue Beard's beautiful new bride is entering the forbidden room through the only door. She is horrified.  She has a key in her hand.  High on one wall, an oversized portrait of Blue Beard glares down disapprovingly his disobediant new bride.  Thunderstorm rages outside.

Defining the Problem in the BDSM Community

If thou dost ill, the joy fades, not the pains;
If well, the pain doth fade, the joy remains.

Support for Victims of Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Sexual Violence

Psychopaths have an uncanny ability to spot and use 'nurturant women' -- that is, those who have a powerful need to help or mother others. Many such women are in the helping professions -- nursing, social work, counseling -- and tend to look for the goodness in others while overlooking or minimizing their faults: 'He's got a problem but I can help him,' or, 'He had a such a rough time as a kid, all he needs is someone to hug him.' These women usually take a lot of abuse in their belief that they can help; they are ripe for being left emotionally, physically, and financially drained.

We had our first argument last night, and he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me.
I know he is sorry and didn't mean the things he said, because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today. It wasn't our anniversary or any other special day.
Last night he threw me into a wall and started to choke me.
It seemed like a nightmare, I couldn't believe it was real.
I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over. I know he must be sorry cause he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today, and it wasn't mother's day or any other special day.
Last night, he beat me up again, it was much worse than all the other times.
If I leave him, what will I do? How will I take care of my kids? What about money?
I'm afraid of him and scared to leave. But I know he must be sorry because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today. Today was a very special day. It was the day of my funeral!
Last night, he finally killed me. He beat me to death.
If only I had gathered enough courage to leave him, I would not have gotten flowers today.......

If you are against domestic abuse, please pass this along to everyone, NOT just women.

1 Corinthians 13

Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy.
It does not boast, it is not proud
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered
It keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres
