We’re getting into the good stuff on Geek Girl Riot with the Sex Episode. Our Rioters are joined by special guest, Danarama, a sex educator and professional speaker on BDSM and alternative sexuality skills. He brings his 23 years’ experience as a BDSM dominant and 17 years as a presenter to this week’s show to teach us all a thing or two about BDSM, and explore with our Rioters about self-empowerment through sex positivity. This episode is designed to make you feel safe and open up about your sexuality, because we can’t stress this enough: There is nothing wrong with desire and consensual sex.
Between, Above, and Outside the Sheets
Being sex positive includes being open and honest with your own and others’ sexuality—and it also goes deeper than that. It holds very personal meanings to us all, and our Rioters share how they learned to claim their own sexual freedom. Sherin, Soma, Philip, Renee, and Dan talk about what sex positive means to them and why it matters.
Power v. Pleasure
For centuries guilt and sexual repression has been used to control our inherent desires. From religion to government, media to education, we’ve been taught what’s right and what’s wrong, with little openness for discussion. Our Rioters dig into how sex became a means of control throughout history and when we began to break free from repression. They also discuss what they’re worried over and what they’re loving about today’s changing attitudes towards sex.
No More Brown Paper Bags
Now for the fun stuff: toys, kinks, fetishes, asexuality, and the joy of doing it your way. Listen in for recommendations of toys and shops, educational websites and a starting guide to BDSM from our guest Danarama.
