1970's BDSM, the good old days

Death by Party | Don’t let the neighbors see  you leave

You know what this photo makes me yearn for? A time when everything was in the closet, and I mean everything. The bible was on the front table and the gag ball was hidden in the basement. I’m not saying that I believe that old sexual taboos were right, I’m saying they must have been so much more pleasurable during a time when you had to sneak around and hide in the shadows.

Imagine, you had to go to a THEATRE to see a dirty movie. There was a time when being outed as gay could literally get you run out of town. Being discovered as a lifestyle BDSM’er could get you fired and your children taken away. Buying a dirty magazine (what’s a magazine?) could land you in jail. Just imagine a time when admitting you masturbate could lead to a concerned intervention. There are people still alive who remember these times.

Sound horrible? Yes, but the THRILL must have been amazing. There was DANGER in you passions. Sexual liberation does have it’s down side. If you eat steak every day, you start longing for bologna.
