Kink isn't always colourblind. Photo by Flickr user Stephanie Lawton. For as long as I can remember, certain sexual acts were deemed "freaky white people shit" by the vast majority of my black female friends. From my earliest memories of teenage slut-shaming as a Toronto high school student, it was agreed upon in our young black and brown minds that white girls were the only ones who engaged in oral sex, for example. We would grow up to find that not only was this complete and utter bullshit, but also wonder how that stereotype started in the first place. The more I followed sex-positive black women on social media in my mids, the more curious I became about kink and everything it meant. I started to wonder about my boundaries and limits when it came to sex.
