Check out our brand new article in THE CAGE Magazine featuring Janet W. Hardy, an acclaimed author and co-author of more than a dozen groundbreaking books on relationships and sexuality, including the best-selling classic, The Ethical Slut, which has sold over 300,000 copies to date.



Janet is the latest subject of our CAGE Kinky Proust Questionnaire, a series of thought-provoking questions designed to delve into an individual's personal experiences and outlook on sexuality and kink. Janet has been a leading figure in the modern-day sex-positive movement for over two decades, offering invaluable insight and guidance to those seeking to explore and embrace their desires  We think you'll find Janet's insightful responses a worthwhile read, relevant for anyone looking to broaden their understanding of human sexuality and the diverse ways it can be expressed.


Until next time!

Kink educator and YouTuber Evie Lupine has completed our CAGE Kinky Proust Questionnaire, a brand new feature in THE CAGE Magazine!  Read about Evie's thoughts and experiences in kink, fetish, and BDSM here.

The original Proust Questionnaire was a series of questions answered by the French writer Marcel Proust and included in a "confessional album", a parlour game popular among Victorians. You may have seen variations of The Proust Questionnaire on the American television series, Inside The Actors Studio, or in the back pages of Vanity Fair Magazine. THE CAGE kinky version is designed to reveal something of the subject's personality and relationship with kink, fetish, and BDSM.

Find THE CAGE Kinky Proust Questionnaire exclusively in THE CAGE Magazine.

Thanks to Evie for participating!  Keep your eye out for future editions of THE CAGE Kinky Proust Questionnaire featuring people of note in the world of BDSM.

We all have boundaries and our D/s relationships are no exception. Kink and human relationships can get messy, particularly when an interest in a kinky activity may not match up to how the real thing actually feels. In the heat of the moment we can push past what we feel comfortable doing, finding ourselves in unchartered territory. Boundaries can be crossed intentionally, but for many kinksters, crossing a boundary can happen without harmful intent. It can be difficult, but there is a way to move forward.

Our latest CAGE Magazine article looks at how to manage a crossed boundary including how to process what happened, how to discuss it productively with your partner, and how to prevent it from happening in the future. Check out When a Boundary is Crossed in Your D/s Dynamic inside THE CAGE Magazine.

Happy New Year, CAGE! We hope you're having a wonderful festive season, no matter how you celebrate.  We're celebrating too as THE CAGE turns 6 on January 1st 2023!  To mark the occasion we've been working on an exciting new CAGE Premium feature that is now live:  CAGE in-site video and voice calling!

Premium members can now enjoy unlimited video and voice calls, easily engaging with friends new and old without ever leaving THE CAGE. By video and voice chatting on THE CAGE, you'll never have to worry about sharing your outside contact details until it's right for you. Not a Premium member? No problem! It's easy and affordable to upgrade and get video or voice calling right away.

Make sure to try out this fantastic new Premium feature and help us celebrate another year with our fun and kink friendly BDSM community!

AND if you're ready to make your first call you'll find some simple instructions below to help you get started.


Ready to make your first video or voice call? Great! Let's walk you through how it works. 


Before calling another Premium user you must grant and request permission for calls.



To grant others permission to call you simply visit a profile, click on the "settings" icon under a user's name and toggle "Allow to call" to on. You can revoke this permission at any time. 



To request permission to call another user contact them via BOND instant messenger or CAGE Mail and ask them to grant you permission.



Once permission is granted click the video camera icon under a user's name on their profile. You can also call another Premium user by clicking on the camera icon in BOND.

Don't worry if you aren't quite ready to engage in a video call. The video camera is off by default until you decide to turn it on. One or both users can have the camera activated during a call.



You can see your allowed callers in your Preferences under the Privacy tab. Select a name and click on the "x" to remove someone from your callers list. You can also revoke call permissions by toggling "Allow to call" to off in a user's profile settings.



If your device is not allowing you to make a call please make sure you have granted permission to your microphone and your camera. Camera permission is required even if you only intend to make a voice call.


We can't wait for you to get to know each other better with our new CAGE Video and Voice Call feature! Now let's get calling...

Most of us didn't grow up surrounded by positive representations of kink or alternative sexuality.  And it hasn't helped that pop culture has often depicted BDSM as the realm of so called weirdos or even predators.


So it's no surprise that many of us have feelings of guilt and shame when we think about our kinks! It can be hard to overcome these feelings, especially if we've experienced decades of negative feedback. But we do have some suggestions that can help.


Our latest CAGE Magazine article, Guilt, Shame, & BDSM, looks at ways to overcome these feelings in order to better enjoy and explore our kinks and fetishes.

Safety and BDSM is a gigantic, broad-reaching concept. Your idea of safety may not match the idea of "safety" of the person next to you - especially in the world of kink where some people are willing to allow a little risk in order to enjoy new sensations.


Our latest CAGE Magazine article explores the topic of BDSM Safety Frameworks in depth including a look at popular safety acronyms, what they mean, and the pros and cons to each.
