Sexual Misconduct is any misconduct of a sexual nature that is of lesser offense than felony sexual assault such as rape and molestation, particularly where the situation is normally non-sexual and therefore unusual for sexual behavior, or where there is some aspect of personal power or authority that makes sexual behavior inappropriate. A common theme, and the reason for the term misconduct, is that these violations occur during work or in a situation of a power imbalance. It is a legal concept to frame offenses which are non-criminal but nevertheless violating of another person's personal boundary in the area of sexuality and intimate personal relationships. Sexual misconduct is often perpetrated against an individual without their consent or where the power dynamics of the relationship are being challenged in an effort to redefine the nature or form of consent necessary in a given circumstance. The alleged misconduct can be of various degrees, such as exposure of genitals, assault, aggressive come-ons, pleading, or even inattentiveness to nonverbal cues of discomfort. The "definition of sexual misconduct is far from clear" and it is a "lay term, sometimes used in institutional policies or by professional bodies", to deal with cases marked by power imbalance, coercion, and predatory behavior."

Products marketed specifically toward women are generally more expensive than those marketed for men, despite either gender's choice to purchase either product. The NYC Department of Consumer Affairs conducted a study that concludes that women's products are typically more expensive than men's for often reasonable cause. There are many causes of this discrepancy, including the tampon tax, product differentiation, and the belief that women are less price elastic than men. Products marketed specifically toward women cost on average 7% more than products marketed toward men, according to a New York City Department of Consumer Affairs study.

Yes you should explore and experience life, but beware of the risks and be prepared for the worse. If your not prepared, you are blindly playing with disaster that could ultimately lead to excessive and undue suffering. Have fun on all your adventures, but understand there are no guarantees.

They told me to change my clothes. I changed the law instead. | Gina Martin | TEDxWarwick Oct 27, 2020 (video) - At the British Summer Time Festival in 2017, a man placed a phone between Gina Martin’s legs, took photos just inches away from her crotch and proceeded to share these images with his friends. Angered by a lack of response from the authorities, Gina took to social media to document her experience creating viral posts and an online petition receiving 50,000 signatures with cross-party support. As a political novice from a working-class background, it took years of juggling politics and activism, before Gina was finally successful in adding upskirting to the Sexual Offences Act 2003, which created several new offences such as non-consensual voyeurism, assault by penetration, causing a child to watch a sexual act, and penetration of any part of a corpse. It defines and sets legal guidelines for rape in English law. It is also the main legislation dealing with child sexual abuse.

The effects of alcohol are balanced between its suppressive effects on sexual physiology, which will decrease sexual activity, and its suppression of psychological inhibitions, which may increase the desire for sex. Alcohol is a depressant. After consumption, alcohol causes the body’s systems to slow down. Often, feelings of drunkenness are associated with elation and happiness but other feelings of anger or depression can arise. Balance, judgment, and coordination are also negatively affected. One of the most significant short term side effects of alcohol is reduced inhibition. Reduced inhibitions can lead to an increase in sexual behavior.

Violence Against Women are violent acts the victims of which are primarily or exclusively women or girls. Such violence is often considered a form of hate crime, committed against women or girls specifically because they are female, and can take many forms. VAW has a very long history, though the incidents and intensity of such violence has varied over time and even today varies between societies. Such violence is often seen as a mechanism for the subjugation of women, whether in society in general or in an interpersonal relationship. Such violence may arise from a sense of entitlement, superiority, misogyny or similar attitudes in the perpetrator, or because of his violent nature, especially against women. The UN Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women states, "violence against women is a manifestation of historically unequal power relations between men and women" and "violence against women is one of the crucial social mechanisms by which women are forced into a subordinate position compared with men." Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations, declared in a 2006 report posted on the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) website: Violence against women and girls is a problem of pandemic proportions. At least one out of every three women around the world has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime with the abuser usually someone known to her.

Here Are 59 Ideas On How To Stop The Violence against Women

1. “Treat choking as the serious crime it is. Choking/strangling the victim is one of the top indicators of future homicide.” — Kim Gandy, CEO of the National Network To End Domestic Violence.

2. “Create a national domestic violence registry, like the sex offender registry. Because the recidivism rate is so high.” — Kimberly Brusk, domestic violence survivor.

3. “A lethality assessment protocol, used to determine how much danger a domestic violence victim is in, should be utilized across the U.S. Results should inform sentencing and treatment guidelines. Police and court officials should undergo training to understand lethality factors.” — Nicole Beverly, domestic violence survivor.

4. “Relocation services and assistance for victims with high lethality risk, with a change of identity similar to current witness protection programs.” — Nicole Beverly, domestic violence survivor.

5. “We need to do what the U.K. did and make psychological abuse a crime. Just because one was never hit, doesn’t mean you’re not a victim too.” — Jennifer Tetefsky, domestic violence survivor.

6. “A system of detaining and monitoring the abuser rather than the victim having to drop everything and go to a shelter would afford greater safety. The victim still needs to go to work, still needs her kids to be in school, and those are both huge exposures to lethal violence. Remove the threat, not the threatened.” — Lisette Johnson, domestic violence survivor.

7. “An electronic monitoring system where victims are alerted when their abusers who are on parole or probation are in their vicinity.” — Nicole Beverly, domestic violence survivor.

8. “Stricter penalties for repeat offenders.” — Barb Weems-Mourglia, domestic violence advocate.

9. “Law enforcement should arrest abusers when they violate restraining orders.” — Kate Ranta, domestic violence survivor.

10. “Better communication across counties and states with law enforcement, prisons, jails, court systems and treatment providers regarding information about abusers. Perhaps a central monitoring system?” — Nicole Beverly, domestic violence survivor.

11. “Harsher consequences for stalking, harassment, ongoing emotional and verbal abuse.” — Kate Ranta, domestic violence survivor.

12. “Make non-fatal strangulation a felony in Ohio.” — Amy Weber, lost a family member to domestic violence homicide.

13. “Judges: When a victim is asking for a permanent restraining order, grant it!” — Kate Ranta, domestic violence and gun violence survivor.

14. “Do not force victims to be in the same courtroom as abusers. Allow for testimony to be taken separately and safely.” — Kate Ranta, domestic violence and gun violence survivor.

15. Annual domestic violence training for police officers and court officials incorporating victim impact stories to put a face on the issue that they often become numb to.” — Nicole Beverly, domestic violence survivor Gun safety reforms.

16. “Recognize that one of the most dangerous times for victims is when they are trying to leave the abusive relationship, or have already left. Make it easy to get a temporary restraining order, and remove firearms (and prevent gun purchases) during that danger period.” — Kim Gandy, CEO of the National Network To End Domestic Violence.

17. Congress should close the loopholes in the federal gun prohibitions to ensure that stalkers and [abusive] dating partners are barred from gun ownership, just like other dangerous abusers. — Everytown for Gun Safety.

18. Every state in the nation should prohibit possession of firearms by anyone convicted of abusing an intimate partner or family member. And every state should prohibit gun possession by anyone subject to a protective order prohibiting them from harassing, threatening or stalking an intimate partner or family member. — Everytown for Gun Safety.

19. “Require police departments to investigate if domestic abusers are prohibited from owning guns, or [have the police] be subject to serious fines and imprisonment if their lack of proper investigation results in a shooting.” — Jennifer Tetefsky, domestic violence survivor.

20. States should provide all records of prohibited abusers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS. — Center for American Progress.

21. Congress should require comprehensive background checks and ensure that prohibited domestic abusers cannot easily evade background checks by buying guns from unlicensed sellers. — Everytown for Gun Safety.

22. There are 46 percent fewer intimate partner gun homicides of women in states that require background checks for private handgun sales than in states that do not. State lawmakers should require private, unlicensed sellers to conduct background checks on gun sales, just as licensed gun dealers do. — Everytown for Gun Safety.

23. States should pass laws requiring that domestic abusers turn in their guns to law enforcement or licensed gun dealers when they become prohibited. — Everytown for Gun Safety Financial assistance.

24. Research shows that domestic violence victims do indeed lack adequate access to affordable legal services. What about subsidized lawyers for domestic violence survivors? — The Institute for Policy Integrity.

25. “Comprehensive financial and legal services available immediately to victims. Job placement. Housing. Money to get out of the home.” — Kate Ranta, domestic violence survivor.

26. “We need to train domestic violence survivors on financial literacy so they can become economically independent.” — Ludy Green, domestic violence expert.

27. “Abusers mandated to pay into a pool that gives rental assistance to victims, so fewer become homeless because of domestic violence.” — Barb Weems-Mourglia, domestic violence advocate.

28. “Domestic violence is the third leading cause of homelessness among families nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Due to a critical lack of affordable housing, families in domestic violence shelters typically have no safe, affordable options and are unable to leave shelter. Moving victims and their children as quickly as possible into safe, affordable housing reduces the trauma of domestic violence, the disruption of children’s lives, and increased cost to the public sector to house a family in a shelter.” — Carol Corden, executive director of New Destiny Housing.

29. “My situation was one of abandoning rights to marital property if I left the house. I was shot while we were working out who would leave. In situations of abuse, partners should be protected from any forfeiture of marital property.” — Lisette Johnson, domestic violence survivor.

The most volatile time is when the victim tries to separate.” — Lisa Riveglia Rasmussen, domestic violence survivor.

He systematically broke down my psyche until I could barely decide between wheat or rye on a sandwich without talking to him about it. Then, for six months on an almost daily basis, he worked to convince me that I was a bad parent because I was working 20 hours a week, 15 minutes from home.

Courts must stop forcing victims to share custody, legal or physical, with an abuser (who will doubtless use the child to punish her for leaving, and maintain power and control over her), and must not require the victim to be alone with the abuser for visitation exchange.” — Kim Gandy, CEO of the National Network To End Domestic Violence.

Missing work means not getting paid and the very real risk of getting fired. In the aftermath of a traumatizing assault or frightening stalking incident, a worker may need to go to the police, to court, or to the doctor.

58. Employers should develop and implement workplace policies/protocols that specifically address domestic and sexual violence and stalking. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 70 percent of U.S. workplaces don’t have a formal program or policy that addresses workplace violence. Most employers don’t think about violence affecting their employees until an incident occurs at the workplace. Rather than reacting to specific incidents, workplaces should adopt a more comprehensive approach. They can do this by focusing on protections and policies that create a culture of prevention? — ?not reaction. — Futures Without Violence.

59. Educate and train company leaders and employees. Employers should ensure that employees, including those in supervisory roles, know how to identify an employee who has experienced violence, and what resources are available for assistance. — Futures Without Violence.

Another good reason why sex education needs to start before high school, and is completed before leaving high school.

You want peoples rights to be protected, but you don't want someone to get away with committing a crime either. Remove the rapist from school, but do not deny them an education. And if the victim wants to transfer to another school, then that school should pay for the transfer.

AP Investigation on Sexual Assault by Fellow Students. 17,000 official reports of sex assaults by students over a four-year period, from fall 2011 to spring 2015. That figure represents the most complete tally yet of sexual assault among the nation’s 50 million students in grades K-12. But it also does not fully capture the problem: Such attacks are greatly under-reported, some states don’t track them and those that do vary widely in how they classify and catalog sexual violence. About 5 percent of reported attacks involved 5- and 6-year-olds. Incidents jumped between ages 10 and 11 — typically the start of middle school — and continued rising until age 14, when they began dropping as students progressed through high school.

Forced Marriages - Arranged Marriage - Slavery - Trafficking

Arranged Marriage is a type of marital union where the bride and groom are selected by their families. Arranged marriages can sometimes last longer than marriages that are based on love. Families that have thought about compatibility factors can help build a strong base for the relationship. Studies show that while arranged marriages have a higher initial success rate, love marriages do tend to have a higher long-term satisfaction rate.

Slavery is forcing a person to do things against their own free will and sovereignty, usually under threat of violence, bondage, debt or other punishment, or by manipulating and exploiting a persons ignorance or lack of knowledge. So a person can be enslaved and not even know it, and end up doing things that are not even necessary or do things that only benefit a few people. slavery is a human rights violation because it robs a person of their freedoms and liberties. slavery is the result of criminal behavior that comes mostly from ignorant people who have wealth and power. But slavery comes in many forms. Slavery has been outlawed and is illegal in almost every country around the world. But laws do not guarantee compliance. The only way to guarantee compliance to to improve education and improve the ways the media is supposed to inform people.

Sex Trafficking is human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation. It has been called a form of modern slavery because of the way victims are forced into sexual acts, usually non-consensually, in a form of sexual slavery. Perpetrators of the crime are called sex traffickers or pimps—people who manipulate victims to engage in various forms of commercial sex with paying customers. Sex traffickers use force, fraud, and coercion as they recruit, transport, and provide their victims as prostitutes. Sometimes victims are brought into a situation of dependency on their trafficker(s), financially or emotionally. Every aspect of sex trafficking is considered a crime, from acquisition, to transportation and exploitation of victims. This includes any sexual exploitation of adults or minors, including child sex tourism or CST and domestic minor sex trafficking or DMST.

Human Trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labor, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others.

A 2009 Department of Health and Human Services review of human trafficking into and within the United States found that roughly 199,000 American minors are sexually exploited each year, and that between 244,000 and 325,000 American youths are considered to be at risk of being trafficked specifically in the sex industry. Heartbreakingly, many of these children are victimized not by strangers who’ve abducted them from mall parking lots but rather by people they know and trust: Studies have found that as much as 44 percent of victims are trafficked by family members, most often parents (and not infrequently parents who were trafficked themselves). Between 2011 and 2020, there was an 84 percent increase in the number of people prosecuted for a federal human-trafficking offense. Of the defendants charged in 2020, 92 percent were male, 63 percent were white, 66 percent had no prior convictions, and 95 percent were U.S. citizens. Trafficking had become one of the fastest-growing criminal enterprises, estimated by the Department of Homeland Security to bring in $150 billion globally and considered by many criminals to be a superior business model: If caught, the sentences were often lighter than those for peddling drugs; and unlike crack or heroin, the same product could be “used” again and again and again.

Sex Offender - Pedophilia - Perversion - Sex Abuse

Sex Offender is a person who has committed a sex crime. What constitutes a sex crime differs by culture and legal jurisdiction. Most jurisdictions compile their laws into sections, such as traffic, assault, and sexual. The majority of convicted sex offenders have convictions for crimes of a sexual nature; however, some sex offenders have simply violated a law contained in a sexual category. Some of the crimes which usually result in a mandatory sex-offender classification are: a second prostitution conviction, sending or receiving obscene content in the form of SMS text messages (sexting), and relationship between young adults and teenagers resulting in corruption of a minor (if the age between them is greater than 1,060 days). If any sexual contact was made by the adult to the minor, then child molestation has occurred. Other serious offenses are sexual assault, statutory rape, bestiality, child sexual abuse, female genital mutilation, incest, rape, and sexual imposition. However, particularly sex offender registration laws in the United States, may also classify less serious offenses as sexual offenses requiring sex offender registration. In some states public urination, having sex on a beach, or unlawful imprisonment of a minor also constitute sexual offenses requiring registration. (sexual offender, sex abuser, or sexual abuser).

Molestation is sexual assault or abuse of a person, especially a woman or child. The action of pestering or harassing someone in an aggressive or persistent manner.

Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Although girls typically begin the process of puberty at age 10 or 11, and boys at age 11 or 12, criteria for pedophilia extend the cut-off point for prepubescence to age 13. A person who is diagnosed with pedophilia must be at least 16 years old, and at least five years older than the prepubescent child, for the attraction to be diagnosed as pedophilia.

Reasons why people do bad things. They are forced and threatened to do bad things. They are extremely desperate with few choices so they believe that their only option is to do something bad. They are mentally ill and suffer from a physical problem that effects their thinking. They are under-educated and ill-informed which causes them to believe that their behavior and actions are justified. They are just unaware of what they are doing because they lack the knowledge and information that is needed to understand their situation accurately. They are just a total scumbag who likes doing bad things to other people.

Child Grooming is pretending to be someone's friend by establishing an emotional connection with a child, and sometimes with the family, in order to lower the child's inhibitions with the objective of sexual abuse or other devious acts.

Sexual Abuse is abusive sexual behavior by one person upon another. It is often perpetrated using force or by taking advantage of another. When force is immediate, of short duration, or infrequent, it is called sexual assault. The offender is referred to as a sexual abuser or (often pejoratively) molester. The term also covers any behavior by an adult or older adolescent towards a child to stimulate any of the involved sexually. The use of a child, or other individuals younger than the age of consent, for sexual stimulation is referred to as child sexual abuse or statutory rape.

You have to let kids know that there are bad people in the world, and if given the chance, those bad people will or might hurt you for what ever reason. The good thing is that there's not a lot of bad people in the world, even though there are many bad people in power, there are still not a lot of bad people in the world, mostly because people are born good. But it's always a good idea to protect yourself and reduce your risk and vulnerabilities to being victimized by bad people. So you have to learn how to be aware and how to be prepared if dangerous people cross your path. If you ever feel threatened or in danger you must escape and get help. If you do end up getting hurt in any way, you must understand that you will recover, as most people do. Remember, no one can take your soul, your soul is yours to keep. So stay strong, stay alert and play safe.

It's just not the lack of information and knowledge, it's when information becomes distorted and perverted it introduces numerous combinations of problems, problems that normally wouldn't even exist...illogical with an emphasis on "ill"'s not just that you're doing something that you don't need to do, you're actually keeping yourself from doing the things that you really need to do, so you're causing more damage than you think.

Rape - Torture - Trauma - Abuse

Perverted is showing or appealing to bizarre or deviant tastes. Having an intended meaning altered or misrepresented. Deviating from what is considered moral or right or proper or good. Corrupt morally or by intemperance or sensuality. Practice sophistry; change the meaning of or be vague about in order to mislead or deceive. To change the inherent purpose or function of something.

Perversion is a type of human behavior that deviates from that which is understood to be orthodox or normal. Although the term perversion can refer to a variety of forms of deviation, it is most often used to describe sexual behaviors that are considered particularly abnormal, repulsive or obsessive. Perversion differs from deviant behavior, in that the latter covers areas of behavior (such as petty crime) for which perversion would be too strong a term. It is often considered derogatory, and, in psychological literature, the term paraphilia has been used as a replacement, though this term is controversial, and deviation is sometimes used in its place.

Reprobate is a a person without moral scruples that deviates from what is considered moral or right or proper or good.

Zoophilia is a paraphilia involving a sexual fixation on non-human animals. Bestiality is cross-species sexual activity between human and non-human animals. The terms are often used interchangeably, but some researchers make a distinction between the attraction (zoophilia) and the act (bestiality). Although sex with animals is not outlawed in some countries, in most countries, bestiality is illegal under animal abuse laws or laws dealing with buggery or crimes against nature.

Non-Reproductive Sexual Behavior in Animals consists of sexual activities animals participate in that do not lead to the reproduction of the species.

Paraphilia or sexual perversion and sexual deviation is the experience of intense sexual arousal to atypical objects, situations, fantasies, behaviors, or individuals. Such attraction may be labeled sexual fetishism. List of Paraphilias (wiki).

Atypical is something deviating from normal expectations and somewhat odd, strange, or abnormal. Not representative of a group, class, or type.

Is sexual deviant behavior a mental illness? Is it demonic possession? Is it a lack of self-control? Is it a power trip? Is it a lack of moral knowledge? Is it a addictive personality? Or is it just a bad education, or is it just the lack of key information and knowledge, like sex education? Freedom does not mean that you have the right to be an as*hole.

Sex and the Law deals with the regulation by law of human sexual activity. Sex laws vary from one place or jurisdiction to another, and have varied over time, and unlawful sexual acts are also called sex crimes. Some laws regulating sexual activity are intended to protect one or all participants, while others are intended to proscribe behavior that has been defined as a crime. For example, a law may proscribe unprotected sex if one person knows that he or she has a sexual disease or to protect a minor; or it may proscribe non-consensual sex, or because of a relationship between the participants, etc. In general, laws may proscribe acts which are considered either sexual abuse or behavior that societies consider to be inappropriate and against the social norms. Sexual abuse is unwanted sexual contact between two or more adults or two or more minors, and, depending on laws with regard to age of consent, sexual contact between an adult and a minor.

Circles of Support and Accountability are groups of volunteers with professional supervision to support sex offenders as they reintegrate into society after their release from incarceration. Evaluations of CoSA indicate that participation in a CoSA can result in statistically significant reductions in repeat sexual offenses in 70% of cases, relative to what would be predicted by risk assessment or matched comparison subjects. CoSA projects exist throughout Canada, the United Kingdom, and some regions of the United State.

Decadence which at first meant simply "decline" in an abstract sense, is now most often used to refer to a perceived decay in standards, morals, dignity, religious faith, or skill at governing among the members of the elite of a very large social structure, such as an empire or nation state. By extension, it may refer to a decline in art, literature, science, technology, and work ethics, or (very loosely) to self-indulgent behavior.

Eternal Damnation is the state of being condemned to eternal punishment in Hell. Express strong disapproval of and to reject as invalid.

Foibles is a behavioral attribute that is distinctive and peculiar to an individual. A minor weakness or eccentricity in someone's character.

Deviance in sociology describes an action or behavior that violates social norms, including a formally enacted rule (e.g., crime) as well as informal violations of social norms (e.g., rejecting folkways and mores). Although deviance may have a negative connotation, the violation of social norms is not always a negative action; positive deviation exists in some situations. This is where the norm is violated, yet the behavior can still be classified as positive or acceptable. It is the purview of criminologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and sociologists to study how these norms are created, how they change over time, and how they are enforced.

Taboo is a vehement prohibition of an action based on the belief that such behavior is either too sacred or too accursed for ordinary individuals to undertake. Such prohibitions are present in virtually all societies. On a comparative basis taboos, for example related to food items, seem to make no sense at all as what may be declared unfit for one group by custom or religion may be perfectly acceptable to another. Whether scientifically correct or not, taboos are often meant to protect the human individual, but there are numerous other reasons for their existence.

Fixed Fantasy is a belief or system of beliefs held by a single individual to be genuine, but that cannot be verified in reality. The term is typically applied to individuals suffering from some type of psychiatric dysregulation, most often a personality disorder. The term is also used in the different context of psychoanalysis to distinguish between 'a normal transitory one and a fixed fantasy' with respect to the phantasised 'fulfilment in conscious or unconscious thought of the sexualised wish'.

Kink is the use of unconventional sexual practices, concepts or fantasies. The term derives from the idea of a "bend" (cf. a "kink") in one's sexual behaviour, to contrast such behaviour with "straight" or "vanilla" sexual mores and proclivities. It is thus a colloquial term for non-normative sexual behaviour. The term "kink" has been claimed by some who practice sexual fetishism as a term or synonym for their practices, indicating a range of sexual and sexualistic practices from playful to sexual objectification and certain paraphilias. In the 21st century the term "kink", along with expressions like BDSM, leather and fetish, has become more commonly used than the term paraphilia. Some universities also feature student organizations focused on kink, within the context of wider LGBTI concerns. In this setting, kink can be seen as one of the variations that make up the "Q" in LGBTQ. Kink sexual practices go beyond what are considered conventional sexual practices as a means of heightening the intimacy between sexual partners. Some draw a distinction between kink and fetishism, defining the former as enhancing partner intimacy, and the latter as replacing it. Because of its relation to "normal" sexual boundaries, which themselves vary by time and place, the definition of what is and is not kink varies widely as well.

When people experience intense sexual arousal to atypical objects, situations, sounds, and so on, we see more problems. Sexual Arousal should only come from your lover. A misplaced arousal makes true arousal towards your partner seem insignificant and less meaningful. But Brain Plasticity tells us that there is no behavior that is permanent. Permanency only happens when the person does nothing to correct the behavior. Just because something is happening inside of you, this doesn't make an arousal true or accurate. Control over your mind and body comes from being aware and being more knowledgeable about the human brain and the human body. Every human is born with abilities, but if we don't use them, we lose them. People have become slaves to their impulses, unable to exercise control, controls that they were born with, but not skilled enough to know how to use them effectively.

BDSM is a variety of often erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other related interpersonal dynamics. Given the wide range of practices, some of which may be engaged in by people who do not consider themselves as practicing BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent upon self-identification and shared experience.

Indecent Exposure - Exploitation - Public Displays - Sensationalism

Financial Domination is a sexual fetish, in particular a practice of dominance and submission, where a submissive (money slave, finsub, pay pig, human ATM, or cash piggie) will give gifts and money to a financial dominant (money mistress, findomme, money domme, cash master, or findom).

Erotic Humiliation is consensual psychological humiliation performed in order to produce erotic excitement or sexual arousal. This can be for either the person(s) being humiliated and demeaned or the person(s) humiliating, or both. It is sometimes performed before spectators, including pornography and webcam viewers. It may be part of BDSM and other sexual roleplay, or accompanied by the sexual stimulation of the genitals (or other erotic region) of one or both parties in the activity.

Master/Slave is a relationship in which one individual serves another in an authority-exchange structured relationship. Unlike dominant/submissive structures found in BDSM in which love is often the core value, service and obedience are often the core values in master/slave structures.

Dominatrix is a woman who takes the dominant role in BDSM activities. A dominatrix might be of any sexual orientation, but her orientation does not necessarily limit the genders of her submissive partners. The role of a dominatrix may not even involve physical pain toward the submissive; her domination can be verbal, involving humiliating tasks, or servitude. A dominatrix is typically a paid professional (pro-domme) as the term dominatrix is little-used within the non-professional BDSM scene.

Googly Eyes is eye-contact used to relay that your interest in another person. An amorously adoring expression. Googly Eyes are also small plastic craft supplies used to imitate eyeballs. Googly eyes traditionally are composed of a white plastic or card backing covered by a clear, hard-plastic shell, encapsulating a black plastic disk. The combination of a black circle over a white disk mimics the appearance of the sclera and pupil of the eye to humorous effect. The inner black disk is allowed to move freely within the larger clear plastic shell, which makes the eyes appear to move when the googly eyes are tilted or shaken.

I noticed while in NYC that a lot of women were walking around staring at their cellphones, which for me was nice because I can gaze at them without them knowing, and it's also good for women too because they don't have to make eye contact and feel awkward when ignorant people like me are looking at them only because they're nice looking. It's sad for me, and sad for them, WTF are we doing? In 2018 I noticed a decline in people walking while staring at their cellphones. Text Neck.

People Watching (just observing) - A quick glance is OK. Just take a brief look. Observation Flaws (sometimes it's just better to observe than to interact).

Gaze Detection - Knowing you're being Watched

If you encounter a black bear, do not make eye contact. If you make eye contact, black bears will take this as an act of aggression. Breaking eye contact with an animal like a baboon, will make the baboon perceive the person as non-threatening and might not consider the person to be a threat. But if a wild animal doesn't think that you are notice them, they might attack. If you see a cougar it's good to stand up tall, looking the cat right in the eyes and backing away slowly. Whatever you do, do not run away—that might trigger the cougar’s instinct to chase its prey. With a dog, eye contact is important to a dog, but you need to learn how to be respectful with our gaze and not stare. Watching a dog's eyes can give you an idea what they are thinking and how they are feeling.

I definitely observe people a lot, for different reasons and in different ways. I look at how they walk, I listen to how they talk, and how they stand and sit. It's interesting to me. But some people think that the reason that you're looking at them must be sexual or devious in some way. It's like they have never been around nice people before who actually pay attention to them. Or it might be that they have been manipulated by other people or manipulated by the media. Of course there are dangerous people in the world that you should be aware of. But you can't be so paranoid that you make assumptions or make false accusations or slander someone. Making an assumption about someone usually shows how ugly you are and shows how dangerous you are. You're the ignorant scumbag, and not the person you pretending to know. You can't expect people to stop being nice or friendly to other people just because of some ignorant people can't take their minds out of the gutter and stop including other people in their perverted imagination. I would not judge anyone, and I would not blame people for this type ignorance, especially if they have been a victim of abuse or had a bad upbringing or a bad education. It's just sad that some people can jump to these crazy conclusions. But I do thank people for making me aware of their ignorant paranoia. I just hope that they try not to make a profile out of it or make it a habit. If you see something than say something. But just remember, observation flaws happen and your eyes may be lying to you.

It's sad to know that being nice to some people or giving someone attention could be so misunderstood, especially when that person feels that you're being nice to them because they assume that you want something from them. I don't blame people for their ignorance, it's not their fault. People should be aware, because there are criminals who do take advantage of people. So when someone does make a false accusation, I don't get mad at them, I forgive them. I just hope they educate themselves more and stop making the world an ugly place. This is what I have learned, be careful who you look at, be careful who you talk to, be careful who you're nice to, be careful of what you say, especially jokes, and be careful who you associate with. Ignorant scumbags can be extremely dangerous, especially when they can accuse you of things that are completely false and totally ignorant. People need to stop Cherry Picking Data and start living in reality. People are murdered just because of their religious affiliation without ever being charged with a crime. Women were murdered just because some morons thought they were witch's. And peoples lives were ruined by McCarthyism just because some scumbags thought that some people were communists, and they did this own their own, and not in a court of law. Some people are so f*cked up in the head and they don't even know it. They like to blame people and point the finger at anyone who fits their paranoid delusions. So be careful, be very careful, there are some f*cked up people out there in the world who believe that its their right to be an asshole and talk shit and spread rumors about anyone they don't like. This goes way beyond slander, these scumbags are criminals. And there are some people who are jealous of other peoples popularity. And they will say or do ignorant things to discredit someone just because other people like that person. Not to say that people should not know about certain facts about another person, as long as they are facts and not just hearsay. This is why people are innocent until proven guilty, and the key word here is prove. Ignorant people make assumptions and ignorant people pretend to know things. So the only thing that ignorant people prove is that they are extremely dangerous, and not just ignorant. While I'm busy learning to know things, people are busy pretending to know things, especially pretending to know things about me. Here I am asking questions everyday, while people are pretending to know the answers everyday. I educate myself so that I don't make assumptions. But people are busy making assumptions instead of educating themselves.

Not all men are sex-crazed maniacs, but most men do crave sex or have sexual cravings, as most women do, but maybe not in the same way as men. You're looking at someone and they're looking at you, so you keep looking at them, and then you see that they are still looking at you, and now you are both wondering, why is this person looking at me? Like a positive feedback loop, I'm only doing this because you are. i Hollaback - No More.

"You can't pretend to know what my eyes see, all you can do is ask me what I'm looking at, and then you have to ask what I'm thinking about, because what I'm looking at might not even be related to what I'm thinking about, don't be a presumptuous idiot."

When I do find myself staring at someone or looking at something, it's mostly because I found something interesting for some reason. I might just be admiring a persons style or fashion sense, or just appreciating their beauty or just curious about their behavior. It's kind of like when someone stares at a statue or looks at a painting. But what if the statue or painting looked back at you and said, "what are you staring at?" And I would say, "something interesting and beautiful, but just on the outside of course". And then I would say, "If my staring bothers you, I'm sorry to have bothered you, I meant you no harm. I only meant to admire you, and not to steal your beauty in anyway. But just to let you know, I'm beautiful on the inside, which means that I am also beautiful on the outside, just not in the same way as you of course. But even a poison plant can be beautiful. So if you are poisonous, I promise not to touch you. I will only admire you from a distance, with your permission of course." or I might just say, "I wasn't looking at anything in particular, I was just looking in that direction. My mind was somewhere else."
