Dr. Suzy’s B-Day & Speakeasy Magazine Launch Party this Saturday Night, June 9th, in Bonoboville Comments Off on Dr. Suzy’s B-Day & Speakeasy Magazine Launch Party this Saturday Night, June 9th, in Bonoboville

 

This Saturday night, June 9th, 2018, The Dr. Susan Block Show goes bonobos for our very own Dr. Susan Block as we celebrate her birthday in style! Before we get to the on-air Birthday Bash, we start the evening off from 8pm to 10pm with the Birth of a Magazine, a launch party for Dr. Suzy's new Speakeasy Journal! Filled with unique, erotic, and engaging pictures and articles, the magazine is perfect for all sapiosexuals. The first edition: "Splosh 'n' Art" features Daniele Watts, Chef Be*Live, Gypsy Bonobo, Madame Margherite, Imani Cupe', Michael Wiznu, Ikkor and more.

Joining our host and Bonobo Way author Dr. Suzy for the show will be her husband, executive publisher and "reader-written publishing" pioneer, Capt’n Max, plus a bevy of All-Star guests including Goddess Phoenix, Lexi Lore, Madame Margherite, Rhiannon Aarons, Mistress Kara, Lexi Mansfield, Janelle Hopkins, Jezebel SweetRon Jeremy, Daniele Watts, Chef Be*Live, Rocky Foxx, Lillith Lust, Surka Noelle, Jack Friday, Christianna Cinn, Chynna Doll, Jesse Prather, Tyler Daniels, Professor Oni, Danni Dawson, Moushumi Ghose, Wry MantioneDeryk WilderShana LaySelina Minx, Imani Cupe'Greg FriedmanMadam Raven Rae, Slave WinnieMistress Tara IndianaShaminatrix Missy GaloreIsiah MaxwellNori Carter, FreekBALL, Frank Thomas, James McGuffin, Nicole Samrand, Riz Story and more, including Dr. Suzy's fabulous Ass. Producer Phoenix Dawn and Bonoboville's star hip-hop artist Ikkor the Wolf.

Dr. Susan Block’s Speakeasy Journals are based on the history, philosophy, therapy, politics, photography and archives of The Dr. Susan Block Show, spanning 30 years of broadcasting and performance art. The theme of this premiere print edition is “Splosh ‘n’ Art,” featuring a Commedia Erotica cast of artists, exhibitionists, vegan chefs, junk food lovers and FemDoms, showcasing the convergence of food and sex through art and kink. “Sploshing” is erotic food play. Sploshers spray, drip, dump, rub, mush or cover each other in foods of different flavors and textures. As you’ll see, things get a little messy. But that’s the beauty of splosh… and art. This issue explores such delicious subjects as playing with food, the psychology of splosh, faux cannibalism, “sploshgasms” and (of course) sploshing Trump. This first issue is a must for collectors of print media, researchers, human sexuality students, art enthusiasts, adventurous couples, think-outside-the-boxers, political resisters, food fetishists and splosh lovers. It’s unique, fun, informative, and a great way to spice up your sex life! All issues of Dr. Block’s Speakeasy Journal are dedicated to saving one of humanity’s closest living relatives, our kissing cousins, the highly endangered, “make love not war” bonobo apes.

Dr. Susan Block’s Bonobo Way returns to DomCon LA! Comments Off on Dr. Susan Block’s Bonobo Way returns to DomCon LA!

For Immediate Release: Contact: David Rossi Phone: 310.568.0066 Email: Bonoboville@gmail.com

Los Angeles, California: May 7, 2018 — Susan M. Block, Ph.D., a.k.a., “Dr. Suzy,” internationally renowned sexologist, talk show host and best-selling author of The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure, will deliver an updated reprise of her acclaimed talk, FemDoms of the Wild: The Bonobo Way, at DOMCON LA 2018 on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at High Noon in Room A1 of the LAX Airport Hilton.

Founded by Mistress Cyan, DOMCON LA is “the world’s largest professional and lifestyle domination convention.” DomCon LA 2018 will be held May 10-13. In addition to giving her presentation, Dr. Block will also serve as a judge at the DomCon LA Pet Awards, a talent showcase and competition among the BDSM community’s most well-trained and creatively costumed “human pets,” hosted by Mistress Ellen and Madame Margherite, in Room B2 on Saturday, May 12 at 1:30 PM, right after her Bonobo Way talk.

“I’m looking forward to returning to the wonderful world of DomCon,” says Block, “and so excited to share more about how bonobos, the amazing peace-through-pleasure-loving FemDoms of the Wild, can empower human kinksters and humanity in general.” Inspired by the real-life bonobo apes, our closest living primate relatives, Block will deliver her popular, practical, sapiosexual, multi-media DomCon presentation with an updated outlook on current events and trends, from Trumpanzee politics to Bonobo BDSM, #MeToo (bonobo-style), the SESTA/FOSTA challenge. bisexuality/pansexuality revelations and "incel" therapy in a natural femocracy, illustrating some points with Commedia Erotica dramatization and topping it all off with a Bonobo Way book-spanking (Block wrote the definition of “erotic spanking,” as well as “cuckolding,” “sexual fetishes,” “phone sex” and “striptease” for the Wiley-Blackwell International Encyclopedia of Human Sexuality). “Adult consensual impact play and other forms of BDSM play have tremendous healing power for bonobos as well as humans,” observes Block. “Consider how the brief Forbes Magazine-spanking that Stormy Daniels gave a certain exceptionally narcissistic future president made him stop bragging about himself long enough to have an almost normal conversation.”

“Dr. Suzy is phenomenal!” declared Goddess Soma Snakeoil after attending Block's packed DomCon 2017 presentation. “I loved this class. It was such a joy, and I learned so much!”

In this year's Commedia Erotic dramatizations, Block will be assisted by her assistant, Dr. Susan Block Show associate producer Phoenix Dawn, and champion wrestler Mistress Kara, demonstrating bonobo play, conflict resolution,"hoka hoka" and the "Trust Game," as well as Rhiannon Aarons in the role of Ms. Daniels using The Bonobo Way (and that telltale Forbes) to discipline her pet ferret/Trump.

“Animal play is a great release from human stress and folly, and bonobo culture is especially timely in 2018,” Block continues. “Many fear women taking power, but bonobos show us that female empowerment and male well-being are not at odds in nature, and together, they create sustainable peace through pleasure. Unlike humans and all the other Great Apes, bonobos have never been seen killing each other in the wild or captivity. “How do they do this, and can we humans learn to make like bonobos (not baboons)? Can we release our ‘inner bonobos’ before it’s too late? At this especially tempestuous point in human history, it’s worth a try.”

Times are also tempestuous for the highly endangered wild bonobos, now in critical danger of extinction, thanks to human degradation of their natural habitat in the Congolese Rainforest, especially bushmeat hunting. “Bonobo conservation is integral to the Bonobo Way,” asserts Block. “If we lose the bonobos, then we will lose a key to peace through pleasure that we can never find again.”

Besides DomCon 2017, 2016 and 2015, Block has presented The Bonobo Way of Ecosexuality as the keynote speech at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, for the world’s first Ecosexuality Symposium at an academic institution, and at UC Berkeley for the 5th Conference on Monogamy & Nonmonogamy, as well as The Bonobo Way of Inclusivity at AASECT, the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors & Therapists. Recently, she spoke on writing The Bonobo Way at Yale University (her alma mater), and she presented The Bonobo Way of Great Sex at Adultcon LA. These presentations and others are made possible thanks, in part, to Malcolm Jones and the Bonobo Way Female Empowerment Outreach Project.

FemDoms of the Wild: The Bonobo Way is scheduled for High Noon on Saturday, May 12, 2018. Get tickets here.

Throughout DomCon, Dr. Block will wear latex outfits designed by Demask Latex, The Latex Store and BlackLikorish Latex.

For a taste of what’s to come, watch last year’s The Bonobo Way at DomCon LA. For information about Dr. Block’s appearances at DomCon 2018 or to arrange an interview, please call 310-568-0066.

Dr. Susan Block to present The Bonobo Way of Great Sex at ADULTCON 2017 Comments Off on Dr. Susan Block to present The Bonobo Way of Great Sex at ADULTCON 2017

This Saturday, September 23rd, Susan M. Block, Ph.D., a.k.a., “Dr. Suzy,” internationally renowned sexologist, best-selling author of The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure and award-winning talk show host, perhaps best-known for her groundbreaking specials on HBO, will present “The Bonobo Way of Great Sex” at AdultCon LA 2017.

“The Bonobo Way of Great Sex presents a new, sex-positive paradigm for humanity,” says Block, “touching on sexuality, pornography, war, peace, the balance of gender power, as well as building loving relationships and inclusive, “bonoboësque” communities.” Inspired by the real bonobos, “The Bonobo Way of Great Sex” will deliver mind-boggling science (not “alternative facts”) about our “Make Love Not War” Great Ape “kissing cousins,” who swing through the trees—and with each other, as well as invaluable tips to enhance your sex and love life, with humor, passion, compassion and life-changing wisdom.

The old "killer ape" paradigm, based on common chimpanzees and baboons, has long been used to explain—and excuse—human violence, sexual repression, hyper-masculinity, misogyny, the rise of Donald Trump and America’s state of perpetual war. However, bonobo apes, who are at least as close to humans as common chimps, never kill each other. Instead, they utilize good, consensual sex (and lots of it), empathy, female empowerment and the sharing of resources to defuse violent tensions before they explode into murder and war, thereby cultivating an ecosystem of “peace through pleasure.”

How do they do this, and can we humans learn to “make like bonobos” (not baboons) and live in erotic harmony with each other and the Earth? “At this especially turbulent point in human history,” says Dr. Block, “it’s worth our serious—and playful—consideration to give peace through pleasure a chance.”

Times are also turbulent for the highly endangered wild bonobos, now in critical danger of extinction. “Bonobo conservation is integral to the Bonobo Way,” asserts Block. “If we lose the bonobos, then we will lose a key to female empowerment, peace through pleasure and great sex that we can never find again.”

Block has presented Bonobo Way talks at various symposia, conventions and university settings, locally and abroad. At the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, she delivered the keynote address to the world’s first Ecosexuality Symposium at an academic institution. At UC Berkeley, she presented “The Bonobo Way of Nonmonogamy” at the 5th Conference on Monogamy & Nonmonogamy. She gave a talk on the “The Bonobo Way of Inclusivity” at AASECT, the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors & Therapists. At DomCon LA 2016, she presented “The Bonobo Way of FemDom Power,” and she was invited back as a "Guest of Honor" to deliver “FemDoms of the Wild: The Bonobo Way of Female Empowerment” at DomCon 2017. Dr. Block has been a visiting lecturer in Human Sexuality departments at USC, UCLA & Caltech, as well as at her alma mater Yale University for Sex Week at Yale and other events. Always a fascinating speaker on multiple subjects, she has addressed a variety of groups from YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) to LSO (Lifestyles Organization) on sex, love, pleasure, relationships, feminism, culture and the Bonobo Way.

Dr. Block’s interviews with porn stars on HBO, cable TV and the Internet are legendary, so she looks forward to seeing the stars and meeting the fans at AdultCon. “The Bonobo Way of Great Sex” will explore the full range of erotic possibilities, including how to “release your inner bonobo,” topping it all off with an exciting book-spanking or two (as well as traditional book-signings) with the book that’s inspiring a revolution, The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure. Dr. Block also wrote the definitions of “erotic spanking,” “cuckolding” and “sexual fetishes,” among others, for the Wiley-Blackwell International Encyclopedia of Human Sexuality.

AdultCon LA 2017 will be held September 22-24 at the LA Convention Center. Get tickets here. "The Bonobo Way of Great Sex" is scheduled for 4 PM on Saturday, September 23, 2017. For information about Dr. Susan Block’s appearance at AdultCon or to arrange an interview before or during the convention, please call 310-568-0066.

Satyrs & Porn Stars this Saturday Night Live from Bonoboville on DrSuzy.Tv! Comments Off on Satyrs & Porn Stars this Saturday Night Live from Bonoboville on DrSuzy.Tv!

This Saturday night, April 29th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will observe the Worst First 100 Days of an Unpresidented Presidency and get set for the merry Masturbation Month of May with satirists, satyrs,  porn stars and lovers. Joining international sexologist and Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block will be megawatt bisexual porn star and shameless gamer Riley Reyes, last seen in Bonoboville on Dr. Suzy & Pr.

This show is Ass. Produced by Harry Sapien and Jacquie Blu.

What do satyrs have to do with masturbation? Despite millennia of anti-masturbation mania, there exists some positive folklore on the natural wonders of whacking off. According to the Greeks, masturbation was a gift from the gods. Hermes revealed it to the great god of the wild, Pan (from whom the bonobos take their Latin name Pan Paniscus), after his love for a nymph had gone unrequited, demonstrating how the simple act of masturbation could be an excellent rape prevention technique. Pan then taught the other satyrs and the shepherds—for which we can only assume that the sheep must have been grateful.

Dr. Suzy’s PURIM BACCHANAL 2017 in Bonoboville this Saturday! Comments Off on Dr. Suzy’s PURIM BACCHANAL 2017 in Bonoboville this Saturday!

This Saturday night, March 11th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will celebrate Purim, aka the "Jewish Mardi Gras" or "Hebraic Halloween," that holiday of masquerade, seduction and debauchery revolving around the Story of Queen Esther, the Biblical Trophy Wife who saves her people from genocide with nothing but her Weapons of Mass Seduction.

Warning: This is Not Your Bubbe's Purim.

The world-renowned Commedia Erotica Players--porn stars, poets, BDSM experts and comedians--will improvise Biblical roles as Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block, a former Sunday school teacher turned sexologist, narrates her critically acclaimed, erotic exotic version of the Megillat Esther in the Womb Room, to be transformed into the king’s court and harem, as well as a more bonoboesque “gallows” (a St. Andrew’s bondage cross). Dr. Block's Purimspiel will be performed live on the air before a live studio audience, munching hamantaschen which we in Bonoboville also call "pussy cookies," since they are shaped like an open vulva, complete with a jam-filled hole in the middle. This seems more interesting than the more conventional explanation that their triangular form comes from the villain Haman's hat.

Special guests, performers, participants and celebrants include Ron Jeremy, Mistress Tara Indiana, Amor Hilton, Shannon St. James, Kat Monroe, Karla Lane, Kristen Kraves, Rick Fantana, Jack Cannon, Sheree Rose, Rhiannon Aarons, Madame Margherite, Ikkor the Wolf, Vanessa Block and our own Gypsy Bonobo and Jacquie Blu.
