Sexual policing is NOT sexy and it definitely isn’t the role of scientists. The creators are paranoid that this drug might make women like sex too much. I don’t need to rehash the article, but here’s the original NY Times article.

And every now and then, one of you springs up (or for some reason, hordes of you, where I’m involved) who doesn’t understand that a sub will have boundaries. Just like anyone else. If it’s unacceptable under vanilla circumstances, it’s probably unacceptable under all circumstances.

I’m going to post this as a reminder: tops, think hard about whether you do any of these things. Bottoms, think about whether you’ve witnessed this behavior anywhere recently.
