*Looking behind the curtain:

Demystifying BDSM power play and Kinky sex

 

Kinky sex is currently enjoying a surge in popularity, and has become one of the largest explorative sexual practices. Studies indicate that 25-35% of adults engage in some form of sexual play that explores a power dynamic. This lecture focuses on demystifying and demonstrating some of the most exciting aspects of kinky sex and BDSM power play. From determining what you want and how to safely get it, communication, Morpheous walks the audience through self awareness for likes and dislikes as well as understanding the context of pain and pleasure. Looking at the history of the kinky sex movement and the investigation of the mainstream crossover, Morpheous explains how to practice BDSM etiquette so that all participants can use the framework of "Safe, Sane and Consensual" to scaffold their interests and desires in a healthy and positive way. Demonstrations and discussion of some of the equipment gives the audience a chance to understand this subculture in a tactile way.

*Pornography: From art to porn and back again:

A study of the influence of Kink on the arts and society

This lecture focuses on the dynamic tensions between the arts and society and how each has influenced the changing perception of Kink over the past 120 years. How did we go from French Impressionist paintings to online live pornographic web streaming and what does it mean for our future? From Manet to Hustler, from Modernism to online pornography, this lecture investigates and traces the creation and consumption of erotic images from "high art" to "low art" and explores the tension that is created by this dichotomy.y.

*Love makes the world go ‘round

Investigating the strengths and challenges of Polyamory

More and more citizens are currently turning to polyamory to explore and express their sexual and emotional needs and desires. Marginalized and alternative communities are especially branching out into polyamorous lifestyles. This lecture gives insight into how consensual non-monogamy has functioned in the past and what it brings to contemporary and alternative social relationships; how the participants use it, make it work and the challenges associated with it.

*Understanding alternative sexuality's emergence of communities

In the 21st century

As the internet and social networking sites develop, many more people are engaging in sexual practices that were previously considered marginalized or unusual. New emerging subcultures and organizations have grown from the underground and currently skirt around the edges of mainstream society. People from all socioeconomic classes are part of these new and emerging communities. These groups enjoy their own customs, nontraditional relationship structures, vocabulary and sexual practices. In this presentation geared towards safer sex workers, mental health professionals and therapist, Morpheous discusses and highlights the risk behavior of current alternative sexual communities as well as their vocabularies and structures in order to help you understand and better serve your clients' and patients' needs.
