The BOE Announces BDSM & the Law, Tuesday, May 7

BOE Small Web Logo 448pix by 336pxALLEN PARK, Mich. – This week’s class is: BDSM & the Law with Larissa Z.

BDSM as defined by the BDSM community is a mutually beneficial relationship where all parties involved derive some sort of satisfaction or pleasure from the BDSM relationship or acts performed during a scene. The Law, however disagrees. The Law views a BDSM act not as an activity of mutual satisfaction, but as one that simply causes injury or harm. This difference in viewpoint can cause complication and lead to prosecution for serious felonies such as assault and/or battery and sexual assault crimes. This class will examine what the differences are between different criminal prosecutions, and to what extent the law will allow such criminal conduct to be excused by the fact that the injured participant consented to have harm done to her or him. We will also examine Michigan laws on consent and assault, the “Consent Counts” movement within the BDSM community, and privacy laws, as they relate to the idea of consent and a BDSM relationship.
