A poetic and artful umbrella, Komorebi is based on a Japanese expression that approximately translates to “sunshine filtering through foliage.”

My friend @murphmanfa sums up my feelings about 50 Shades of Grey PERFECTLY. I like my share of problematic things, but far too many women read these books and don’t KNOW they’re problematic, and believe that THAT is how bdsm works. It absolutely is not. Christian is abusive, manipulative, and is a downright bully. In a true dom/sub relationship, I would even go as far as to say that the sub is the one with the real power. They set the limits. A true dom will never bully you, never guilt you, never make you feel bad about saying no, and never ignore limits. You should never fear your dom. The amount of women who want a relationship like the one portrayed in the books frankly scares me. Absolute consent. Absolute limits. Absolute mutual respect. A dom who searches for a pushover is not a dom at all, but instead someone who gets off on abusing women and pretends it’s under the guise of kink. Do not trust any dom who enjoys 50 Shades of Grey. If you enjoy this series as a bit of throwaway reading, that’s cool, we all have our guilty pleasures. But do NOT ignore the problematic elements. Hope this helps. (I enjoy bdsm and kink in general so I feel I have some authority to say these things.)

Yes.

and tbh, i know the feeling of wanting to see a boob. like i truly understand the desire to see a titty. but there are times when that shit is just not practical like. when fighting. i dont need to see a big set of boobers when someone is killing a dragon because its not even sexy to me the entire time im like “wow that is incredibly unsafe if you get stabbed there you’re done buddy”
