Venturing into the realms of Altered Mental States should be done carefully. The human mind is vulnerable to suggestion (as witnessed by the recent ‘cult’ suicides in LA). People often have an enormous desire to be ‘part’ of something greater or more important than themselves. They need to feel contributory, worthwhile, of significance. This desire or need makes them equally vulnerable to other humans who have no scruples on using their needs against them.
Within the BDSM community have become accessible to huge numbers of ‘unknown’ individuals. Within this group have been a small but growing number of predators. Not all human predators like to physically molest, rape or kill other humans…some like to ‘toy’ with other people’s minds. Many new or emergent submissives are vulnerable to the ‘lines’ or ‘lures’ offered by these predators. Exposure to the BDSM people whom you know. Predators are not welcome here!
