I have to ask:
The Pope is quitting.
Maker’s Mark is reducing its alcohol content.
FetLife is no longer able to allow certain fetishes on its website.
ARE THESE ALL RELATED???
OK the Pope thing I can handle. It’s for the best. The Catholic Church has done more harm than good overall. Don’t believe me? Well, if I had a nickel for every time one of my sex consultation clients started off with, “I was raised Catholic…”
I’d be as rich as I feel.
The Maker’s Mark announcement that it will reduce its alcohol content from 45% to 42% due to high demand is a bitter pill to swallow, especially since I’m pretty sure we can put the blame on my partner Matthew.
HE DRANK IT ALL.
Last year he saved all his empty bottles of Maker’s and we took a pic of the pile of sadly see-through corpses, but I can’t find it right now to show you. It was like an elephant bone graveyard.
The worst blow, however, is the announcement that kinky social networking site FetLife was penalized by Visa credit card company for being perverts, and their funding platform was yanked without notice.
BOY I know how that feels. I was permanently banned from PayPal two years ago for having adult content, and I’m STILL peeved about it.
But I’m just one slut. FetLife is HUGE! No one is safe from the thought police!
Here is FetLife’s policy on what can be shared on their site:
Common Sense Rules” which are as follows:
- Nothing under 18 (including fantasizing).
- As long as it’s consensual, it’s ok.
- If it’s non-consensual, you can fantasize about it as long as it stays that way. Fuck The Thought Police.
Here is what they have to do now if they want to stay in business:
The Big Four no-no’s (even in fantasy) are:
1. Anything Under 18.
Yes, those are big taboos in our society, but WHY those four? Why not bloodplay and other edgeplay, like needles, vomit, sploshing? What if it’s just pretend? What about Furries? Seems like a slippery slope to me. It makes more sense to delineate between fantasy and reality than to censor certain thoughts.
Well. I’m about to post an incest roleplay scene here that would not be allowed over on FetLife. That’s because I don’t try to make any money on this site. I pay my hosting company $20/month so I can share my deepest, darkest thoughts with you.
