Ep 31 Kink 101

Here are some resources from Cameron for more info about kink:

Doctor Lindsey Doe, Clinical Sexologist, runs the YouTube channel Sexplanations (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkxMlA7rt-mnIc1AjbyAsPw). Her channel dives into a wide variety of sex topics. For further information on topics covered in today's episode have a look at the following videos:

For a more general guide, Tristan Taormino's Ultimate Guide To Kink is a good place to start: https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Guide-Kink-BDSM-Erotic/dp/157344779X/

Additionally Different Loving and its sequel, Different Loving Too are well-known. They are primarily about experiences as described by those interviewed, rather than about technique or method.

For anyone interested in rope bondage specifically, Cam recommends the following books from his own collection:

Finding professionals who will treat kinky or kink-curious people with dignity can be an emotionally taxing experience. The Kink Aware Professionals directory is a fantastic resource to find professionals of all sorts, from psychologists to accountants to computer/IT pros. If you are a professional who is kinky or welcoming to kinky clients, you can add yourself to the registry to let people know you are a safe vendor to work with.


For readers interested in meeting people in their local kink scene, Cam recommends finding a local munch (mundane lunch) as a low-pressure social setting to make acquaintances. Several resources/strategies (none are fully comprehensive or bulletproof, mind) are:

  • http://findamunch.com/ - A general directory of kink gatherings, not just munches. Each event listed should have a description to help you understand what to expect and if that event is potentially right for you.

  • Google (seriously!) - Google "your city" + "kink" (or "bdsm") to see what events and groups are active in your area.

If you're interested in why Cam groaned at mentioning 50 Shades of Grey, this article does a thorough job of breaking down why kinky people dislike it: https://www.elitedaily.com/entertainment/film/three-reasons-50-shades-emotional-abuse-bdsm/940575
