Anti-bdsm poems

https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/news/is-nxivm-a-cult-what-we-know-w512261

Every now and then, more now than then,  
I feel completely misunderstood.  
So I write a poem as clear as I can.  
Even then it sometimes gets worse  
For a poet, this is a curse!  
Make no mistake, though I came here to play,  
BDSM has no act in my script, no place on my tray!  

When I joined DUP, I was specifically looking for a site that would be accepting of erotic poems. I had only written a handful, but none of the poetry sites I had been posting on would allow erotica. What a bunch of tight-wads I thought...  
But after a few years of reading erotic poems, I started noticing how many bdsm poems there were. I usually brushed them off and moved on. Some were quite disturbing to me, and I consider myself pretty liberal. It started to annoy me so much I put in a suggestion to have BDSM become a category so that those of us who enjoy erotic poems could read sensual poetry without needing to be beaten and whipped and chained to a wall and abused in extreme ways. I find nothing whatsoever erotic about rape and abuse.  

I have always made an effort not to use dirty words in my poetry in general, but even in my erotic poems, I think I have intelligence and creativity enough that I don't need to turn a sensual painting into a picture of pornography.  
So after talking to a few close friends, three in real life and a few others here on DUP, about their own experiences in the bdsm lifestyle, I wrote a poem, which has become an entire chapter of poems, on how I feel about the topic. I know my opinion on this will likely be an unpopular one, just based on the poems and comments I frequently read here, but since I was rebuffed on the idea of a separate category, which still makes no sense to me, I find it necessary every now and then, to refresh my attitude and to explain it as clearly as I can to others who want to involve me in some Dom/sub relationship I have no interest in being a part of.  

This list now consists of my poems against bdsm. Over the past 17 years I have gone from being stimulated by bondage to finding it utterly distasteful, brutal, and dehumanizing. A combination of talking with friends who were trapped in the lifestyle and seeing a number of bdsm videos has changed how I feel to the extreme. If you are considering entering this lifestyle I hope you will read these poems first. I hope you will change you mind and treat yourself with the respect you deserve to be treated with by lovers and others...!

I was a big Smallville fan and had the hots for Allison Mack, who played Chloe in the show. Little did I know what the future held for her and that she lived so close by. The whole Nxivm story seems unbelievable, but it is exactly what I have been warning people about, just on a much larger scale than I imagined possible. At first I thought Mack was just another victim, but no, she was a co-mastermind and devised the brand to include his and her initials. Maybe she was brain-washed too, I don't know, but it all boils down to the same thing, control, arrogance and greed. Mind control and emotional manipulation should be a crime! JJ
