Goodbye To Informed Consent

I’m sad to learn that the venerable UK kink website Informed Consent is shutting down in February after a fourteen-year run. No explanation is being given except “There are several reasons for this, some of which we can’t talk about.”

In the early days of Bondage Blog — when kink blogging was still a fairly rare thing — I often linked to material on the Informed Consent forums and user blogs. I mostly stopped in time, because the people there displayed a sort of dickishly insular culture and too often they would actively complain (using very abusive language) about links from outside the site. But there’s no disputing the site was a cornerstone community resource. I’m sorry to see it going away.
