ethics plural of eth·ics (Noun)
2. The moral correctness of specified conduct.
I think most people believe that morals and ethics are related to whether anyone is doing something to hurt someone else. And also, whether it is legal or not. Unfortunately a lot of kink is still on the law books as an illegal act. Take for example the woman who was “going down” on her husband and a neighbor lady saw them through their window and called police. Well, I’m sorry, but there are a lot of sexual acts like fellatio and sodomy that are quite, quite common (as in, most people do it) and they just haven’t been taken off of the law books yet. In fact, if you google it, there are so so many laws that haven’t been taken off of the law books yet. And the reason is because it takes time and money to do that and other priorities arise above the law about not riding your camel through town.
But, then again, some laws do correspond to my views on the ethics of kink…such as play with minors. That is definitely off-limits.
Just like harassment, abuse can be perception. If someone feels that they are being abused, even if they are consenting to a bdsm relationship, then obviously something is not right.
If, on the other hand, what may be a beating that results in bruises, that brings pleasure to that person, may just be the result of a consensual bdsm relationship.
Ethics or morals means rightness…doing what is believed to be right. On that note, nothing and I mean, NOTHING, has ever felt so RIGHT, as being sub to my Master!!!
