Fresh Cookies and Kink

Dan Savage addresses the seeming dichotomy presented by the gay community -- that though we generally seem to be less uptight about sexual matters (as he says: "Once you've told your momma that you wanna kiss boys giving yourself or your partner permission to indulge in this, that, or the other kink isn't anywhere near as scary."), we can still be rather ordinary in so many other respects:

"...there's nothing mutually exclusive about conspicuous displays of wholesome family values—like baking peanut butter cookies for your kids—and attending IML and indulging in the kinds of (preferably safe) sex acts that so shock and repel and redden the likes of Sally Kern."
