Psychology of Kink - A Panel Discussion

  • 21 people on the list

A panel discussion of the psychology of kink & BDSM feat. mental health professionals, sex educators, BDSM professionals & community members

Event description:

  • “Why is kink intriguing?”
  • “Why do I have the fantasies that I do?”
  • “Am I a bad person for being into this kink/fetish?”
  • “Should I process my fantasies with my therapist?”
  • “Why does pain hurt so good?”

And most importantly…

  • “WHY would ANY sane human want to engage in such acts?!”

These are just a few of the questions that we’ll be tackling on the Psychology of Kink Panel.

This provocative panel isn’t about the “Hows” of kink and BDSM, but about the “WHYs” that fuel our exploration. Join us as we psychoanalyze the depths of our kinky brains with a kink-affirming licensed therapist, a professional Dominatrix, a kink educator, and seasoned lifestyle practitioners. Panelist information to be released soon! Moderated and hosted by sex & kink educator/coach, Maria Two-Straps.
