Trisha Low, in interview with Blake Butler:

I was at this rope bondage workshop the other day and the instructor was like, “it’s so funny because rope bottoms, before they’re tied, always try to assume the position—hands behind back, clutching opposite elbows… but that’s so silly and contradictory to the fundamentals of the S&M scene, because your partner is supposed to handle you and put you into the position they want you in.” I kind of feel that way about interviews, I guess, or answering questions like this one. I want to be handled, kind of—like there is no position I want to assume apart from your assumptions to begin with. Do you really feel like there’s an automatic mythos? But it’s all so banal!
