“We tend to think of the erotic as an easy, tantalizing sexual arousal. I speak of the erotic as the deepest life force, a force which moves us toward living in a fundamental way.”

On a campus with little exposure to a kink-friendly community, Dov (and Panarchy, Sexperts, DCP, GSX, and Tabard) seek to offer students a space to learn and discuss safe, consensual methods of exploring BDSM. Dov will be teaching students how to perform erotic rope tying based on an intricate style originated in Japan. No assumptions will be made about gender and sexual preference; we seek to make this event as safe, queer-friendly, feminist, sex positive and inclusive as possible.

*Participation is optional (fully clothed). Ropes will be available; feel free to bring a partner.

Note that the event is funded by COSO. This will pay for the expertise of “Dov, NYC-based bondage expert” (Is ‘dominatrix’ not PC any more?), who will demonstrate
erotic rope tying based on an intricate style originated in Japan.” I’ll leave it to the reader to assess how responsible a use of the College’s money this is.
