what would you say if you got a gag order from someone under 16?
This is a real issue for me, because I used to do kink education and I know that just like teenagers experiment with sex, more and more of them are experimenting with kink, especially when kink imagery is so prominent in the work of contemporary artists teenagers follow and mimic, e.g. Rihanna and Lady Gaga. I do think there needs to be some kind of education about kink at the high school level, just to dispel myths and to warn teenagers away from risky and unsafe practices.
What form that education should take is outside of my ability to figure out, though, so until someone else figures it out, I just don’t discuss kink with anyone under 18 years old, and I’ll never practice it with anyone under 18. That includes gag orders, even if they aren’t overtly sexual in nature.
