▼▼▼ VIDEO INFORMATION ▼▼▼



We have a lot of terms we like in the BDSM community. Squick. Play partner. dungeon. kinkster. Some words are unfamiliar, and to those not yet introduced to the community or yet a part of it, the use of these words can be confusing. One that I see the most discomfort around is "vanilla". Is it an insult? Is it a slur? Or is it a neutral term -- or even something positive?



In this video I will discuss why I believe we use this term in the community, and whether it is intended to be a hurtful or dismissive term.



For further reading I highly recommend this article by Clarisse Thorn, who does an excellent job exploring the term even further:

Keep in mind I can only talk about what is *currently* accepted in the BDSM worlds. Language evolves quickly -- it is entirely possible the use of the word could change, or is even in the process of changing right now.
