    New York may be a cosmopolitan city, but not everyone who lives in the area is. Reading this article made me something close to furious because it illustrates the open intolerance for those who engage in leathersex.

    Once again, the morality police are concerning themselves with what two consenting adults do in private. The subject of this story, Richard Benjamin, has been made to feel like a pervert and an object of public ridicule by a public newspaper.

    If anyone should be ashamed, besides The Post editors, it's the management of Nutcracker Suite which allowed their employee to violate a prime rule of bondage and that's never to leave alone anyone in suspension. Dr. Benjamin nearly died because of their negligence and he's lucky for that. While he and his wife may feel his conduct constituted infidelity, it's important to note that many times scenes like these do not result in sexual contact.

    The biochemistry of BDSM is complex but it is real. In some states of mind, the body releases natural opioids and endorphins. The isolation from suspension causes sensory deprivation, allowing the body to focus on the chemical cascade, and mentally transporting the person being suspended into altered states of consciousness. Sex may, or may not, be involved; the high being satisfactory in itself.

    I think it sad and ridiculous that this man is being crucified for engaging in what is actually a normal and healthy activity (when it is performed properly).

    "Thank you for telling me."????

    A guy left in her care nearly dies and she can't be bothered to check for herself. What a cunt.

    Taki Nariko (the dom) is the one who should be strung up and left for dead! I know very little about the world of BDSM; but isn't a major component to have someone else there with you to add to your pleasure and excitement? Why did she leave? :confused: How the hell long was she gone for his foot to turn blue?!? :mad:

    I don't think he's a freak; but I do think it's tragic that his marriage may end because some stupid chit fucked up.

    Ah, leave it to the famous tabloid NYP to frame it in the manner they did. Go back and re-read it, and notice how they phrased various sentences.

    The "dominatrix" Taki Noriko, who left him unattended is the one who should be crucified, humiliated, and hung out to dry. She failed utterly and miserably in her role. I'm glad they published her name, and I hope that anyone who meets her in a BdSm context recognizes her and spits in her face.

    This is one of the reasons that I keep on advising anyone curious about bondage or other similar activities seek out experienced guidance. Curiosity and a piece of rope can turn a harmless activity into a dangerous one.

    This is worthy of repeating: SMBD play is nothing that should be left to amateurs.

    But really, Jason: Are you really that surprised that a reactionary rag like The Post would be so twisted in its reporting of this incident?

    As Bbucko and DC point out: Education is KEY (as it is in all things).

    Also--the Post can suck my left nut.

    Kthanks!

    I am a bit surprised with The Post. Not at all shocked mind you, just surprised.
