Could talking to students about BDSM culture help combat rape on college campuses? Psychology researcher Kathryn Klement thinks so.

Klement is the co-author of a newly published study out of Northern Illinois Universitywhich showed that BDSM practitioners are less likely to believe victim-blaming myths or sexist stereotypes than the general population. That's why she believes that teaching college students about BDSM and kink practices can be hugely beneficial.

Klement's study analyzed surveys filled out by 60 college students, 68 random online respondents recruited through Amazon's MTurk site and 57 self-identified BDSM practitioners. The groups, which included a robust mix of ages and genders, answered whether they agreed with such sexist and victim-blaming statements as "when girls go to parties wearing slutty clothes, they are asking for trouble," and "many women have a quality of purity that few men possess.

Across the board, Klement said, kinky participants had a healthier understanding of sex and consent than the other groups.

Kinky participants were also less likely than college students to support benevolent sexismor stereotypes that misrepresent women as weak creatures in need of male protection. Although there's much to be gained from the mainstream community borrowing BDSM mainstays like safe words during sex, Klement thinks the most important thing the kink community can teach us is the concept of affirmative consent. Many BDSM practitioners follow a "yes means yes" mentality, where partners explicitly ask about specific sex acts rather than assuming it's kosher until somebody says no.

That's the bottom line.

Because BDSM often involves physical danger and role-play, many practitioners advocate constant communication throughout every stage of seduction and sex. Klement said some people worry all that talking will kill the mood, but in reality it can often have the opposite effect. It looks like a lesson in consensual humiliation and kinky foreplay might be the ticket to fighting rape culture.
