Episode 37 – Gatekeeping in Kink

Gatekeeping in kink is defined as “restricting or limiting access to the lifestyle or community or invalidating someone’s actions or feelings, usually based on personal bias and prejudice.” An example would be saying you can’t be a dominant if you are female or you can’t be a rope bunny if you are overweight. People who decide that their way to kink is the only way to kink are bad for the community. It invalidates people’s lived experiences and it takes away people’s right to decide for themselves. Gatekeeping does nothing but hurt communities, both members and outsiders. It’s an elitist practice that more people should be concerned and speaking out about.
