There are some good common sense tips in here, but others that you present as general rules don't always apply or don't make sense. (No collars near your neck? What?) Altogether, the article amounts to a few tips that will keep you safer in your bondage scene if you only had two minutes to educate yourself before trying something like this for the first time. I'd encourage anyone reading this to take A LOT more time than two minutes before diving into this area, and to seek a more in-depth and experienced source.

"Because they driven by power and control, bondage fantasies may sometimes get out of hand, which is why it’s important to adopt safe practices in any type of scenario."

Grammatical error aside, bondage fantasies could possibly get out of hand because of poor negotiation between partners beforehand (which is a 101-beginner topic frighteningly omitted from this article), non-disclosure of important details like health and body limitations, or choosing partners arbitrarily without having a sufficient knowledge and trust built with them. It is not that one person gets drunk with power and disregards the needs and limitations of the submissive, as the quote in the article seems to suggest.

This article are obviously written by someone who doesn't have a lot of experience in the area of kink and bondage, and only a cursory Wikipedia education in other areas like pressure points. Your mileage will definitely vary.
