Safe Word
Stop_Sign_by_hombaroo225.jpg

Safe words are easy-to-remember words that are given to a submissive at the start of a session by the dominant, signalling that the submissive's pain limit has been reached and that play should stop.

A common safe word would be 'Red', often used in conjunction with 'Amber', which is a signal to slow down the activity slightly, but not to end it
