I’m giving a webinar on kink in mainstream media on 18 June 2023 at 10:00 AM Pacific. This is based on my ongoing research for The Celluloid Dungeon. I’ll be digging deep into the history of kink in film, going back to the dawn of the moving image and showing some of the moments and images and individuals. Admission is free for CARAS subscribers and $25 for everyone else.
I’ll be a guest on the Sex with Robin radio show on BFAM 109.6 on Monday, December 14th, 2020 at 10:00 AM Pacific/1:00 PM Eastern. Robin is a friend who does great work educating about all forms of sexuality, drawing on her experience as a nurse, a stripper, and a pro domme.
My first online presentation will be at 6:30 PM (Pacific), on Tuesday, July 21st, 2020. This is under the auspices of the organization I helped found, Metro Vancouver Kink.
The history of consensual sadomasochism is full of fascinating characters, strange transformations, and unlikely connections. Come to learn about the fertility rites of ancient Rome, the Catholic Church’s ban on flagellation, the Victorian gentleman who kept his maid as a willing slave, and the retired Marine who was outed as a kinkster on the eve of the Iraq war.
