Although this can be said for quite a few fetishes (and kinks), cutting definitely falls into a category of sexual acts that can be extremely dangerous, even deadly. People who have a cutting fetish have to be careful about their interests. Any partners involved have to be willing, and most prefer if their partner shares a similar fetish. They also have to know how to cut safely and what to do if something goes wrong. Cutting, even in a consensual context, has the potential to become illegal and lead to severe consequences.
