Kink in exile

Notes from a kinky nomad

We interrupt the sex to bring you politics

I cast my early vote today, after standing in line for half an hour at city hall and then working my way through 22 local ballot measures.  (Should we replace the emergency tax with an emergency fee of the same amount?  Do I really care?)

I’m curious now if all my kinky friends will be voting no on 8 (the proposition to ban same-sex marriage) and yes on K (allow the SFPD to outright ignore laws against prostitution, while still enforcing existing laws against rape and battery even if the victim is a prostitute).  I’m wondering if our sexuality, our openness about sexuality in specific, is based on our political outlooks.  Perhaps it forces us to be liberals in an effort to our selves stay out of jail.

What do you think?  Chicken or egg?

  1. The politics is definitely the Chicken; political views stem from personal beliefs. That’s why it’s so important to teach live and let live, and start to model our legislature around an inclusive culture that celebrates its diversity instead of an exclusive one that shames itself for that diversity.

  2. I don’t think the two are linked in my case, I just happen to be both left-wing inclusive, and also kinky. Some kinky folks are very conservative in many ways!
