I think you should have a saftey word in anything you do when doing bdsm. I personally never really used one. But I have one just in case.

And not just a safety word, but a safety action. Especially if you play around with strangulation. Safety first! THEN teamwork...

Exactly and checking in just to make sure if your with a new partner is another good idea too.

Yes a safety word is a very good idea, just to make sure everything is going okay on the other end of things

Even if you never have to use it, having a safe word/action is always a good idea. It's really easy to get caught up in a scene and accidentally take things too far. You shouldn't be afraid or ashamed to use it.

Yes, always. As was said before it's a good idea to have one even if you end up not using it. You never know...

Yes, and even more important, a partner you trust!

If you're in any situation where "no, stop" wouldn't necessarily mean that - yes, no exceptions, you should have a safeword or gesture.

Definitely a safety action, too.

If there's doubt, a safe word should be used.

I don't really get into this, but if I was too I would want a safe word.

Better to have one and never need it than to need it and not have it.

I have a safety word but have rarely used it. It is there in case I have a problem during playing, especially with having neck/back problems from a car accident. One time I had to use it because of pressure on my neck and was bothering me from bondage.

Absolutely! It's always better to be safe than sorry. And in cases where you aren't able to speak, like others have said it's good to have a safety action too.

I'm only going with 'no' because I have to fully trust a partner before the full on BDSM would happen. With being a sub, I expect (if the relationship had gotten to that point) my Dom to be in tune with me enough to know exactly how much to push me in each area. So in that case, I don't require a safe word.

I believe it comes down to how in tune you are with each other. My online Master even knows how far to push me - there is an intuitive-ness on his behalf..... whether skeptics want to believe it or not.

I think definitely yes. You should have a safe word. Even with non BDSM activities, you should always have a way to say stop if you feel the need; but especially with BDSM activities, where pain and other such things are involved.

Even though we've never had to use it and we don't get really rough, we have the simple no. or i don't like that. Seems to be good enough for light play.

Well, in the more heavier stuff, a safe word is very useful, because sometimes when she says 'no' she really means 'yes', and sometimes when she says 'no' she really means 'no', so a non sequitur phrase or word can come in handy for those times. So, yes, but we've rarely used ours. If ever, actually.

If your partner says no you should be willing to stop

Well, I think if they say no you should be willing to stop, but A code word is another safe way of practicing. I'd say, always have a code word ^^

I voted both yes and no because it's really up to you, as a couple, to decide whether "Stop" or "no" or "I'm done" (all things I've used to stop a scene) are effective enough. If you're playing with someone who isn't your long-term or primary partner then DEFINITELY have a safe-word. If it's your boyfriend/girlfriend/h usband/best friend/life partner/whatever, I think perhaps it's more open to negotiation.
