Stands for Risk-Aware Consensual Kink
RACK is an ethical philosophy that serves as an alternative to SSC (Safe, Sane, Consensual). Critics of SSC argue that the term is too vague to be of meaningful use for our purposes in BDSM, pointing out that very little of what we do in the lifestyle is actually ‘safe’ or entirely without risk. In truth, we can only operate under differing degrees of ‘safer’ and ‘less safe’. RACK acknowledges this while emphasizing personal responsibility.
Let’s break the term down to understand it fully.
