B is for BDSM

Hi everyone! Welcome to the A to Z of Sex with me, Dr Lori Beth Bisbey. I am a sex and intimacy coach and psychologist and I’ve spent the last 30 + years helping people to create hot and healthy sexual and intimate relationships. We are working our way through the erotic alphabet one letter at a time. Today the letter is B and B is for BDSM.

BDSM stands for Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism. Joining me to talk about BDSM and kink as well as to talk about Divine Deviance – the movie they are producing is: Race Bannon. He has been an organizer, writer, educator, speaker and activist in the LGBT, leather/kink, polyamory and HIV/STI prevention realms since 1973. He has authored two books, been published extensively, and has spoken to hundreds of audiences. He created the world’s largest kink-friendly psychotherapist and medical referral service and led The DSM Project that yielded beneficial changes in the way psychotherapy views BDSM. Race also founded a groundbreaking alternative sexuality publishing company, was an internet radio sex talk show host, received national and local awards, appeared in numerous documentaries, and currently writes for the Bay Area Reporter. His blog is www.bannon.com

And Jörg Fockele , a critically acclaimed filmmaker, executive producer and TV director/producer of shows such as Bravo’s “Queer Eye,” ABC ’s “Wife Swap,” MTV’s “Savage U” and AMC’s “Small Town Security.” In addition, Jörg has written and directed 10+ short films, 4 feature documentaries and numerous music videos and PSAs – among them “Ritual,” an award-winning short documentary about the Sun Dance Hooking ritual and the PSA and interview series “Unsung Heroes – The Leather/Kink community’s fight against AIDS.” Jörg’s most important awards and distinctions include retrospectives at the Goethe Institutes New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and Mexico City, 2 Emmys and a special prize from the International Film Festival in Berlin.

And Lola De Milo, is a German systemic sexual therapist and relationship coach with 20+ years of kink and BDSM activities, activism and social engagement under her belt. She has been engaged in various projects from the organization of a charity Pin-Up calendar series, to appearances on different TV & radio shows to 6+ years of PR as a board member of Europe’s oldest registered association of kinksters SMart-Rhein-Ruhr e.V. and 2 years on the board of the German Society of Social-Scientific Sexuality Research e.V. Her favorite work apart from coaching is to hold talks and workshops for professionals in the social/medical/therapy sector and for police women and men to promote kink awareness.

And Adam Ouderkirk has been an organizer and activist in the LGBTQ and HIV/STI service communities since 1981, working to expand freedom and sexual expression for all. Combining passions, he’s been able to use his arts and design background and training to broaden access and acceptance, through innovative, inclusive programming in connection with healthcare and prevention services, through his involvement with the HIV Story Project and their films, and his ongoing devotion to creative, alternative exploration.

And Beatrice Stonebanks has been in the San Francisco BDSM scene for 20 years and lives in a 24/7 Master/slave relationship as the Loving Dominant with a taste for forced-femme, enforced chastity, 0-to-60 edge-play, and evolving long-term contracts. Beatrice also has 25 years’ experience working with leadership teams around the world increasing revenues as a Business Development Specialist; she knows what-works and what-doesn’t work, both in the boardroom and in the dungeon. Beatrice is the Coordinator for US non-profit, Society of Janus. She is a Feminine Dominant, a published author, an award winning speaker and a community outreach leader.

For transparency: I live in a 24/7 Master/slave relationship as the slave. I have identified as a slave since I was old enough to put a word to my desires and consider this my sexual orientation as gender does not drive my attractions, dominance does.

We spent the first part of the show talking about BDSM and Kink. The final part of the show was on Divine Deviance.
