Introducing ideas of consensual power exchange and role play, Eli explains Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, and Sadism & Masochism, and how “kinksters” use gender, intense stimulation, and hierarchical power display/enforcement to “play” with erotic interactions like impact, restraint, and verbal direction. 

 Additional discussion will include: Facing Your Squick & Getting Over It

Does someone else’s sexual desire just make you cringe? Eli relates how she faced her internalized sexual judgment as a closet prude, reconciled her feminist beliefs with women’s voluntary masochism, and managed colleagues’ assumptions about her personal life in light of her research on polyamory and BDSM. Sheff closes with strategies for dealing with your own squick if someone else’s yum is yucky for you.
