I was thinking about joining Fetlife, so I Googled “Fetlife review”, and you are what I found. Great post. I feel about the same, and agree with the person who said there is likely a silent majority of members who are more in your camp and are repulsed by any association between their amorous desires and abusive relationships. What ever happened to Safe/Sane/Consensual? Not to mention love and tolerance. It’s fantasy play, folks! True fun kinky play is the opposite of abusive. It is liberating. Anyway, your writing is evidence of a sharp mind, and that is very sexy. You will do fine out there. Just takes time.
So, do you recommend trying Fetlife, despite your reservations?
