Safe Word

A word, signal or gesture that is decided on in advance between participants in a BDSM scene (Dom and Sub, Top and Bottom). When the safe word is used, it signals to the Dom to stop or slow down the BDSM act they are involved in. It can mean that the person is uncomfortable, experiencing unpleasant pain, the play is exceeding established agreed boundaries or is just getting too disturbing to one of the participants.
