Cross-Cultural Kink: Who Gets To Decide What's Sexually Perverted?
Jesse Bering: "We W.E.I.R.D. people (the anthropologist Joe Henrich's apt acronym for 'Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic') often assume a false obviousness along these lines of harm and consent that, interestingly enough, simply isn't there. Scientists have found that since we
would be harmed by a certain sex act, we presume others would be harmed as well."
