WWAC Weekend Review: Telling it Like it Is

Here at WWAC, we are never afraid to speak our minds, even–especially–when our minds don’t fall in with the reigning sentiment.

For many, fandom wasn’t just a way to explore the impossible; it was also a safe space where people could talk frankly and honestly about sex. It’s one of the few spaces where people could talk about preferences and kinks and not feel judged for them. YKINMK (your kink is not my kink) wasn’t just an expression to let people agree to disagree, but explicit acceptance.
