What is happening to my sexuality?
It's cold, it's pasionless, and what's worse, it's dull.
John Preston was right. SM has become a nice, sweet alternative to heavy petting, and the leaders of this SM "community" want us to be the Elks or some other animal-named civics association, gathering to sell expensive clothing and raffle tickets, congratulating ourselves on how nice we are.
Antoniou quotes
This used to be about sex. The literature of my people was pornography, filled with cries for mercy, drama enacted on people without prolonged negotiation, partners engaged in a dance in the middle of a bonfire. Now, it's 300-page manuals about how to make sure nothing bad will happen.
Safe, sane and consensual what do those words really mean?
Assimilation, that's what.

Antoniou Laura quotes
The trouble is, SMers are allowing themselves to be defined by what they are not. We think, "Oh, so many people believe that we're all murderers and rapists, and we have to explain that we're not!" Uh so, a slogan for the gay civil rights movement should be "Normal, Non-threatening and Not After Your Children"?
Antoniou Laura
What goes on when people overfetishize safety is that they're relapsing into that old frame of mind that what we're doing is BAD.
Laura Antoniou quotes
My fantasies have never been safe ones. Don't fuck with me, unless you understand that.
Laura Antoniou
And fuck this, I didn't come out of years of fantasy, rescuing myself from a toxic parent and guilt-tripping myself through anti-sex feminism, politically correct lesbianism and socially-programmed homosexual activism so that someone else can make my goddamn sex life into a slogan.
Antoniou Laura quotes
Fantasies aren't reality, I know, I know, I know. Except when they are. Except when you make them into reality.
