This week in kink, July 17th, 2017

We’re currently seeking new writing contributors. Do you have a unique BDSM topic or perspective? Perhaps you’re skilled at something you haven’t seen grace our pages? We are also seeking experts in needles/piercing, fire play, cupping, and the psychology of BDSM to write on these topics. We’d love to hear from you! Email with your idea, writings, or links and we’ll be sure to get back to you!


We’ve definitely evolved. There is now a sex manual for Muslim women. The manual doesn’t just speak on sex, it also is aimed at helping women avoid and handle abuse. Read the full story via The Guardian here.

Mistress Megara Furie invited medical students to her dungeon as a means to educate them on BDSM, sex work, and more. It’s no secret that sex workers and those involved in the BDSM community face shame, prejudice, and judgement when seeking medical treatment. We commend Mistress Megara on her efforts!

On a more positive note, we wanted to share this fun info: Kinky Salon will be throwing their next party July 29th in Los Angeles. That gives you plenty of time to rest up after the 4th of July festivities!


In the words of Polly Superstar, the founder of Kinky Salon, the tenets are “community, creative expression, and sexual liberation, becoming part of a movement to change our culture’s unhealthy attitude towards sexuality. We are queer friendly, body positive, accessible and inclusive. Creativity is the focus of the events, and sex is just one way to express yourself at a Kinky Salon. We see the liberation of sexuality as a means of personal transformation, and personal transformation as a means of cultural transformation… making the world a better place, one pervert at a time.”

This July, awaken, faeries, sprites, and foolish mortal lovers giddy in moonlight! Behold, for yonder knavish lads and sighing lasses seem bewitched by Puck, our forest’s horny and horn-ed master! Gather folks and fae most worthy of our lords most ribald fantasy, for a steamy dream (betwixt thy thighs) is being dreamed!

Costumes Required: Faeries, sprites, elves, hobgoblins, nymphs, forest, flora, fauna, woodland creatures, wild beasts, Athenian youth, Puck, Titania, mythological creatures, lovers.

Tickets here. You’ll be required to apply first. Doors open at 10pm, last entry at 12.30am.

Do you follow Zodiac signs? A new study reveals the most likely kink for your sign. How close did they match to your desires? While I disagree with the general explanations for some of the BDSM terms in this article, it’s a fun read.
