sexuality, fetishes, edge play

What are peoples thoughts and boundaries on expressing yourself sexually? By this I mean are there certain fetishes or edge play that you determine to be dangerous both physically and emotionally?

How do you determine as a Top or Bottom that playing in a certain way with someone may be unhealthy for you even though you might play that way with someone else? For example, I don't knife play with people who I know are cutters.

As a community how do we talk about extreme fetishes or edge play without judgment?

How do we approach friends, when we are worried that some of their play may be harmful to them, without judging them or making assumptions?
