Kink and Your Brain: Playing it safe with your mental health
For many of us, the path to kink has lots of shame, guilt, and self-doubt. Am I ‘nuts’ because I like getting kicked in the nuts? Am I a ‘bad person because I like to spank and flog my partners? Why do I feel so turned on by such taboo things? Finding your delight and fulfillment in kinky sex doesn’t need to cost you your mental health. In this workshop we will discuss: why and how of kinky attractions, the difference between BDSM and psychological abuse, ways to identify and keep healthy boundaries, and practical safety tips.
Featuring Mx Eli Lawrence, LCSW (they/them), Waterloo Counseling Center Clinical Supervisor and Ms Texas Leather 2019. With Hexa Dulce and sponsored by Sir Rat Leather & Gear
