10.03 Book Review:

  • The book this episode is Sexual Outsiders: Understanding BDSM Sexualities and Communities by David M. Ortmann and Richard A. Sprott. An academic exploration of different types of BDSM and how people in sexual outlier communities can integrate their sexualities into their full selves. It also helps psychologists and psychiatrists understand how to better serve their clients in the BDSM community and instructs kinky people on how to find the best therapist for their needs.
  • Kink Aware Professionals Directory: Professionals in various fields who aren’t going to flip out if you mention a flogger.
