With any BDSM activity, a safe word is a MUST.
For those of you who are new to the game, a safe word is something the submissive can say to make all play instantly stop. It communicates that they are nearing or at their limits, or there is a problem that the Dominant needs to address.
There is no such thing as a BAD safe word. The only bad thing would be engaging in any BDSM game (light or otherwise) without one – and do not listen to those who say you “don’t need one.”
A GOOD safe word is something clear, easy to remember, and something you wouldn’t normally shout out in the middle of pillow play.
SOME COMMON SAFE WORDS
Most candidates on the list are no-brainers…
Stop, No, Safe Word, Safe, and Mercy. Even Red and Yellow are understandable …
