I don’t fucking get it, but I’m intrigued…
and damnit I’m a little… OK a lot turned on.

Keep scrolling for the video!

never-waste-your-timeIs this how the vanilla world views us? Especially kinky POC (because, of course, BDSM is something white folks do)?

I don’t fucking get it and it’s… Now add words like sick, twisted, wrong, satanic, immoral, and perverted to this statement and it becomes an even more-familiar sentiment from people who don’t get it, will never get it and have no intention of ever getting it. But beyond legalities, do we even care what anyone outside of the kink community thinks of our practices, specifically the vanilla POC public?

Perverted is such a terrible thing to be, just like black and nappy. </sarcasmfont>

This is what I thought when I viewed this Erykah Badu video.* It’s weird and sexy and crazy and arousing and erotic and maddening and off-the-wall. I imagine vanilla POC view kinky POC (wearing chains, getting whipped, serving at the feet of another, etc) this way. “Surely there’s some plausible explanation of just what’s going on here, but even after hearing it, I still may not… get it.”

Do you hate this video? Do you love it? Get happy. Get mad. Pick a dandelion. Kick the wall. Just… feel something, because that’s what we do in the lifestyle — we feel.

Keep on with your weird, sexy, crazy, arousing, erotic, maddening, off-the-wall self, Miss Badu.

*For more details about this video and Erykah’s part in it (or lack thereof), read the article at Pitchfork about it. The reader will have to decide on how very real the debate is or how very much of a ploy it may be.

Kinky Black History Month is a collection of things kinky, erotic & touching.

It is the celebration of POC (people of color) with a focus on those who identify as Black or African-American.

For 28 days, know that we exist, some of us are kinky and all of us are worthy.

For the remaining 337 days, know that we exist, some of us are kinky and all of us are worthy.
