Kinky sex and BDSM (bondage, domination, sadism, masochism) have long been misunderstood, and even pathologized, by society and clinicians. However, large numbers of people have kinky sex and are often uncomfortable talking to their therapist about it. This workshop will help therapists understand the definition of kinky sex, including BDSM, as well as their personal relationship and reaction to these misunderstood sexual practices. Additionally, participants will learn six elements of healthy sexuality, and how to assess what sexual activities are right for the client. This session is most relevant to intermediate-level clinicians, though all should be able to benefit.
