When it comes to choosing a safe word with your partner before engaging in rougher sex, BDSM, or other kinds of kink, there are a lot of different routes you can go. You can choose a word that basically means "Stop!", you can choose a word that's so unique in its pronunciation that you'll definitely know it when you hear it, or you can choose something that kills the mood instantly, like "Donald Trump." Well, at least according to a recent survey, that's what someone did.
A new survey from Lovehoney, a leading adult toy retailer, asked 1,280 people around the world about their go-to safe word. And some of the answers were... well, they were a little out there. “'Donald Trump’ was definitely one of the most shocking," Lovehoney’s Sexpert Coco Cameron tells Bustle. "Certainly an effective way to stop the playtime! The amount of safe words in the food category didn’t shock us, but the specificity was entertaining. From ‘Tofu’ to ‘Moldy Bread,’ none of the food groups were left out. We found from our survey that people are incredibly creative when coming up with safe words. Some words or phrases are ones we never would have thought of, but every couple has their preference and the more unique, the better!”
Those weren't the only weird ones on the list — "Kelly Clarkson" made the list, seemingly thanks to The 40-Year-Old Virgin. "Hippogryff" and "Hufflepuff" both made an appearance, probably from a couple of massive Harry Potter fans. My favorite on the list has to be a tie between "Dildo Baggins" and "Cool Runnings," because I can respect good art when I see it.
But not all of the choices were quite so radical. Here were the top 10 safe words, because apparently color and fruit are good ways to get someone's attention.
