Why must they always go together? Why? Why?
does strange things to people
In no way are they related...
To my mind 'deviance' implies something bad or wrong. So we're talking anything non-consensual or maybe also actively unhealthy, but even then, there's an argument that what you do to yourself is up to you...
Sexual deviance is a complex issue because conformity and deviance are relative terms. What I was trying to say is that there are different types of sexual deviance, such as paraphilia for deviant types of sexual expression. From my personal experience a few of my friends call theirselves 'sexual deviants', but they are interested in nothing more than Fetishism, Transvestic Fetishism,sexual masochism & exhibitionism.
Perhaps incest, rape & paedophilia can be classed as sexual deviance. I;m just saying there are many different types and also stigmas attached to sexual deviance.
I was being deliberately hyperbolic in any case since I was interested to know what the OP actually thought 'sexual deviance' was. After all, the idea that sexual deviants are always into metal seems a little too sweeping.
It's all relative.
I used to go to Slimelights. That was an eye opener I can tell thee.
FFs haven't had my coffee of the day yet. Brb.
a lot of people into metal, and the scene around it, like to pretend to be sexual deviants because it adds to their desirability.
But, more often than not, they're *boring as fuck* in bed.
Just an observation.
Anecdotally, for me, of course, being one who avoids scenesters of any kind with a bargepole.
Back to sleep.
FYI: Goth is more associated with 'sexual deviance' than metal, if you ever go to a Bizarre Ball or Torture Garden I think you'll find that it's mostly dance/industrial.
Get it right.
