So if you want to call yourself a pervert, a deviant, or a creep in the John Waters sense, or investigate the appeal of having a pair of testicles plopped on your forehead, go for it! Sexual desire and experimentation is not wrong, so long as everyone is consenting (and legally capable of consenting).

That’s the thing about true, enthusiastic consent—it opens new worlds of sexual possibility, whether you want someone to watch you have an orgasm, would like a good old-fashioned finger in the ass, or want to try something that requires a flashlight, a miniature cactus and blindfold. Don’t judge—but do feel free to decline.
