Caveat to avoid being sued

Posted by raining_girl on Sun 22 Jul 2007 to the Dictionary web board

This rather useful caveat is appended to the end of the Thumbcuffs item.

It could be added to a lot of items, couldn't it? Would that be too clumsy?

"Note: as with all bondage activities, care must be taken. All the dangers associated with physical restraint apply to the use of thumbcuffs. No-one should ever be left alone when restrained. You are responsible for your own and your partner's health. See also safe, sane, and consensual."

You are responsible for your own and your partner's health.

Don't think so- not legally responsible. You might subsequently be held responsible, but one would hope that didn't happen.

I feel like a pig shat in my head.

If you're the top and they die, you're responsible. Various court cases have found so.

Think the caveat is basically saying 'hey, the IC dictionary isn't to blame if you fuck up'.

which may turn out to be a good thing one day....

Damn right, I would never have thought of spending my days kneeling naked in the men's room of a porno store taking on all comers,.... until last night.
