This 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.
