TRAUMA INFORMED CONSENSUAL KINK

A mindfulness & connection-based BDSM (and beyond) consent philosophy 

 Created by Black, Queer  practitioners, Trauma-Informed Consensual Kink (TICK) is a BDSM/KINK consent approach created to directly support Black individuals in navigating potential triggers and trauma responses in their pursuit of pleasure.

What is being "Consent-Conscious"?

Being #ConsentConscious is the first step to reducing harm and sexual violence. 
It means:

I'm committed to:

  1. Being in a practice of exchanging and honoring consent. 

  2. Creating, accepting, and respecting boundaries as a method of SAFETY.

  3. Acknowledging the power dynamics that silence survivors 

  4. Being a practice of self-exploration and healing to expand my connection to PLEASURE

  5. Establishing consent without the presence of force, coercion, or manipulation

  6. Only establishing consent when all parties are of sound mind and AWARENESS

  7. Having awareness that intimacy is a privilege, not an absolute. 

  8. Understanding that consent is ongoing, requires healthy COMMUNICATION and can be revoked at any time. 

  9. Understanding that "enthusiast consent" looks different for everyone.

  10. Recognizing I have the potential to cause harm and I move into EMPATHY-centered accountability. 

We are on a mission to get 1000 signatures!
