As a result of recent media interest, the practice of BDSM has become more mainstream yet remains marginalized. Now more than ever, greater numbers of heterosexual and LGBTQ couples are starting to explore some form of BDSM. However, profound misunderstandings continue leading to unintentional physical and psychological harm. Drawing on current research and ethnographic narratives from the kink community, this book seeks to provide psychotherapists with an introductory understanding of the culture and practice of BDSM, and presents specific therapeutic concerns related to common misconceptions. This book strives to de-pathologize BDSM practices, while also providing concrete ways to distinguish abuse from consent, harmful codependency, and more. Packed with practical suggestions and rich case studies, this book belongs on the shelf of every therapist seeing BDSM and kink clients.

A book that dispels the myths about those who prefer to go beyond “vanilla” sex Sadomasochism: Powerful Pleasures is a comprehensive exploration of the entire sexual subculture that lies on the cutting edge of society. The mental health professions and society have marginalized people who practice sadomasochism (SM).This interdisciplinary collection dispels myths surrounding SM, bringing together leading scholars from the fields of sexology, psychology, sociology, and medicine, alongside queer studies and sexual minority advocacy. Experts such as Thomas S. Weinberg, PhD, Susan Wright, MA, Margaret Nichols, PhD, Odd Reiersol, PhD, Svein Skeid, Rebecca F. Plante, PhD, Niklas Nordling, MPsych, and N. Kenneth Sandnabba, PhD, among other stellar authorities, reveal research findings, clinical data, and critical thinking about sexuality that lies beyond “vanilla.” To gain a broader understanding of human sexuality, the study of SM is crucial for what it reveals about us as sexual beings. The text discusses the results of research into practitioners’ behaviors and perspectives, the prevalence of SM behaviors in today’s culture, and stresses the need for greater tolerance and understanding. The realization of SM desires and their acceptance are explored in detail. This unflinching look at the world and the people of SM will guide scholars and lay people alike into a more sensitive, sex-friendly viewpoint of the people society calls “kinky.” Sadomasochism: Powerful Pleasures answers questions such as: What is the nature of SM relationships? What are the values and motives of SM participants? How do mental health professionals regard and treat SM practitioners? Should sadomasochism continue to be classified as a mental illness? What is the legal status of SM and what are the consequences of discrimination against SM practitioners? Does increasing visibility of SM imagery decrease stigma or create added problems? What can ordinary lovers learn from those we have marginalized about the farther reaches of human erotic potential? Sadomasochism: Powerful Pleasures is valuable, insightful reading for mental health professionals, students, sex educators, sex counselors, sex therapists, sex researchers, sexual health workers, sociologists, sexual minority groups, and anyone interested in learning more about the sexual pleasures that lie beyond the traditional.

When Brian sees Mina, she should be ripe for the picking, but her damage is too similar to his own. Can he fight past his demons to protect the one person he considers worth saving?

Following the success of Pink Therapy (1996 Open University Press) as a practical guide for therapists, counsellors and others in related professions working with lesbian, gay and bisexual clients in affirmative ways, this volume is the first to address how this can be approached from ten of the major therapeutic perspectives. Each approach is discussed with regard to its historical and theoretical relationship to these client groups and how the approach can be beneficial or negative. Guidelines for using the perspective supportively or practically are given, along with references for further study. The volume marks an important step in the dialogue between theoretical approaches and in the future development of, and debate about, these increasingly important fields in contemporary therapy.

Severin, ein junger Mann, dem es an nichts fehlt, trifft in einem Kurbad die wunderschöne und zugleich reiche Witwe Wanda, die ihn an eine lebendige Venus-Statue erinnert. Er verliebt sich unsterblich - doch Wanda, ganz moderne Frau, ist skeptisch, wie lange die romantische Liebe hält. Sie schlägt stattdessen eine einjährige Probezeit vor. Das genügt Severin nicht. Seine Verlustangst ist so groß, dass er Wanda anbietet, ihr Sklave zu werden. Seine Venus im Pelz zögert zunächst, lässt sich schließlich aber darauf ein. Mit der Zeit findet Wanda Gefallen an dem Spiel mit Verlangen und Strafe. Je mehr sie sich zur Herrin aufschwingt, desto stärkere Liebe empfindet Severin - doch er vergisst dabei, dass wirkliche Liebe nur zwischen gleichwertigen Partnern möglich ist. "Venus im Pelz" ist eine Novelle des österreichischen Schriftstellers Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, die er 1870 verfasst hat. Sie liest sich, das werden Sie sehen, überraschend aktuell, fast wie ein früher Vorgänger von Shades of Grey. Sicher ein Grund, warum Roman Polanski die Umsetzung des gleichnamigen Theaterstücks mit Emmanuelle Seigner und Mathieu Amalric nun neu ins Kino bringt. Neu illustriert. Mit zahlreichen Anmerkungen: 74 umfangreiche Fußnoten erklären heute nur noch selten verwendete Begriffe oder Anspielungen, die zur damaligen Zeit jeder Leser verstand. Außerdem wurde es in neue deutsche Rechtschreibung übertragen. Das eBook ist von der serbischen Grafikern und Bühnenbildnerin Marija Stojkovic ( exklusiv für diese Ausgabe mit stimmungsvollen Aquarellen illustriert worden.
