“Kink” community members are upset that former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is casting a negative light on their practices following sexual abuse allegations against him, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Schneiderman, who is accused of sexually abusing four women, is giving a bad rap to the bondage, dominance, submission, and masochism (BDSM) community based on not getting consent from his previous sexual partners, according to the AP. The former AG defended his actions as “role-playing and other consensual sexual activity” in a statement to The New Yorker, leaving BDSM members dismayed by his defense.

The community emphasized that there is a difference between Schneiderman’s alleged sexual abuse and the practices of those who enjoy kinky sex.

“Just as sex without consent is rape, kink without consent doesn’t exist — that’s assault,” Jillian Keenan, the author of BDSM-focused “Sex With Shakespeare,” wrote in an email to the AP.

“It is one of the very basic tenets of BDSM,” editor for Men’s Health EJ Dickson wrote in an article for the site, adding:

Often, sex acts will be negotiated beforehand in the form of contracts, and either way, anyone practicing BDSM responsibly will implement a ‘safe word’ to make it clear if they are uncomfortable with anything happening.

Schneiderman resigned three hours after The New Yorker story broke Tuesday. He is accused of many charges including, choking, beating, assaulting, and threatening to kill women if they tried to break up with him. A former girlfriend from Sri Lanka accused Schneiderman of calling her his “brown slave.”

Prior to the allegations, the former attorney general rallied behind the #MeToo movement and filed a suit against Harvey Weinstein for his allegedly “despicable” actions, in a story that was also broken by The New Yorker.
