    How to spot if your BDSM partner is a killer

    When engaging in strangulation role-play, make sure your partner is a safe option. It is impossible to know whether he is or not, unless you are psychic, but make sure you agree on a "safe word" so he knows when to stop squeezing your neck.

    During strangulation, say your safe word as soon as you feel a bit giddy. Make sure you say it before your face turns completely blue. He should stop immediately. If he does not, he is poorly educated in the ethics of BDSM and you have chosen badly. If only you had studied more.

    If you are not dead, please read all you can about BDSM safety practices before selecting a new partner.

    Best Wishes

    I should like to add that although I am a core member of Feminists Against Compassion my views do not necessarily reflect the ethos of our organisation.

    Actually Jo, it may surprise you to know that the BDSM community does provide education to mimimise any risks involved in various activities, including breathplay. The proposed new laws could very well stifle this education, driving people underground and putting them at risk of real harm.

    How do you spot if your husband is a rapist?

    In July 2002 a Home Office research study was published and according to it - no fewer than one in every 20 women aged between 16 and 59 in England and Wales has been raped, and one in ten has experienced some form of ’sexual victimisation’. Most of these assaults, said the study, had been committed not by strangers but by intimates - partners, former partners and acquaintances.

    The answer to the question is - You Can't.

    But it doesn't stop women getting married or having boyfriends or male friends.
