Consent Violations in Kinky Relationships and Communities - Longform answers
Time to complete: 5 mins and upwards

What I'm looking for: UK-based kinky people's perspectives on consent violations and abuse, both people in BDSM/kink communities and people outwith them. Write down your stories, concerns, questions. Write as much or as little as you like. You can write anonymously and skip any of the questions.

Why I'm running this survey: I'm looking at what barriers kinky people face when it comes to dealing with abuse, and whether those barriers are presented to them by external organisations or by their peers. I'm not an academic, I'm not acting on behalf of an organisation - I'm just an individual campaigning in my free time.

What I'll do with the information I receive: I'm putting together a workshop for an event called BiTastic, held in Glasgow on December 3rd. I'd like to have a broader selection of views than I can reasonably collect by interviewing people, so that I know what issues I should focus on in my workshop. I'm also speaking to other organisations like Rape Crisis Scotland about how they work with the kink community, and I'd like to be able to use your anecdotal evidence to inform those discussions too. I'll be publishing workshop materials and documenting my activities at

Anything you say, even if you write it anonymously, will not be shared with third parties unless you explicitly consent.

I also have a multiple-choice survey dealing solely with kinky people's experiences with health professionals and the police. Find it here:
