BDSM/Kink Panel

Kink Panel Spring 2015This past Thursday, my Human Sexuality NYU students had a chance to attend yet another fascinating, informative, and eye-opening Q & A panel: This time on BDSM/kink, and we discussed everything from specific preferences, developmental trajectories, the meaning of sex, relationships, stigma and coming out, to 50 Shades of Grey.

Only after seeing this pic did I realize how three of the four of us had decided on blue that day…

Huge thanks to our three panelists for sharing their interests, experiences, and views:
– Stephen Elliott, a writer who frequently explores issues of submission and domination in his books;
– Dulcinea Pitagora, MA, LMSW, a sex and relationship therapists who works with erotic minorities (kink, poly, trans and LGBQ); and
– Henry Faulkner, a man who brought his toy bag to class.

Ready for the next panel? It’s on Sex Work.

    Bisexual folks commonly fall victim to the “double stigma” surrounding their sexual orientation. Compared to heterosexuals, lesbian and gay folks still have more positive attitudes towards bisexual people, but compared to other gay, lesbian, queer, bisexual, asexual and pansexual people, lesbians and gay men harbor the most bi-negativity. “So, why are many lesbians so anti-bi? A new study recently published in the journal Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity suggests that this might be due to what the researchers call the androcentric desire hypothesis: The fact that people (gay men and lesbians alike) perceive bisexuals as being more sexually attracted to men

  • Study Finds Queer Folks Are 20 Times More Likely to Be Activists Than Cishets

    Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people are more likely to be activists in more than just the LGBT movement, according to recent research. It wouldn’t come as a surprise that people are most likely to engage in activism for their own group: There are far fewer men than women at feminist rallies, for example, and far fewer heterosexuals than queer folks at pride marches. But is there some crossover between social movements? In other words, are people who belong to one stigmatized group more likely to be also active in social movements that primarily affect other stigmatized groups? A new study using a
