Three in the last five years. Over my life time, Mmmm maybe a 12 to 16 who ran afoul one way or the other, including one who burned to death in Hawthorn California in 1972.neoLoRee wrote:
The candle release is actually the first release method I ever tried. While it can be used safely enough I had never mentioned it here to fore because the forum rules prohibited discussing it. However, when it came up I weighed in with what I knew from experience. Like Shiva_in_Cuffs911 I have never had a problem with it, but know of far too many who did.
How many do you know "who did"?
Neo wrote in response top my opinion on SB wax-play:
It must be remembered that most all of this type of play carries risk. I readily acknowledge that 90% of the time I consciously choose to play without a net, so to speak. I can NOT live my life worrying whether someone is going to be stupid because they read something I wrote. Obviously someone didn't read any of the RED LETTER warnings I posted concerning risk awareness, and advice to minimize the risk in this thread topic alone.The problem (and benefit) of internet access to a forum like this is that any newbie could stumble through here and try something out they are not ready for, or without fully thinking it through.
As I read Anna's comment in this thread, she's concerned with the suggestion of having a source of fire burning (a candle) while in a self bondage scenario. That seems entirely reasonable to me.
If it tickled you shitless that a comment on safety was made before allowing the thread to continue, then I'd suggest you go start your own forum somewhere else, or failing that, attempt to sound a little less arrogant in your writing style.
Not sure at all how you figure I have any kind of problem with the safety comment made by our much loved and esteemed forum Administrator. YES I am Extremely Delighted to the Nth Degree that she allowed this thread topic to continue. No idea why, but this seems to bother you. And I really fail to see how my comments can be construed as arrogant. If you sincerely feel I should go start my own forum somewhere else, I respectfully suggest you just avoid reading my post if they up set you so.
