Recently I was informed that in many areas of the US, BDSM and fetish activity is ILLEGAL. I thought as long as it was consensual than it was permitted, however, not so in every state.
Please check your local laws regarding BDSM and fetish activity. I recommend checking your local alternative newspaper or Googleing BDSM dungeons in your area. If a list of multiple dungeons appear in the results, than it’s a pretty safe bet that this activity is legal.
