Sunny Megatron unpacks No Nut November’s sex-negative undercurrents and reframes it as what it really is for many — a kink. With a little intention, you can partake in the fun of the #NoNutNovember challenge without unknowingly endorsing the anti-sex, anti-porn, purity culture baggage attached to it.
We tend to associate safewords with BDSM, but did you know they can be used in other contexts too? Sunny Megatron breaks down what safe words are, what they aren’t, how they can be used in kink for ill intent, and how to customize them to fit your sexual (and sometimes non-sexual) needs.
CNC isn’t necessarily forced sex role play – in fact, most of the time it isn’t. Consensual non-consent is any type of BDSM power play in which ignoring someone’s “no” is part of the consensually negotiated dynamic or scene. If CNC piques your interest but aggressive sexual domination isn’t your cup of tea, consider these scenarios instead.
