Kink Month 2 on DrSuzy.Tv this Saturday with Mistresses Porcelain, Sheree Rose & Rhiannon Aarons Comments Off on Kink Month 2 on DrSuzy.Tv this Saturday with Mistresses Porcelain, Sheree Rose & Rhiannon Aarons

This Saturday night, October 8th, The Dr. Susan Block Show continues to celebrate Kink Month 2016 with an array of kink stars and artists. Joining international sexologist, Bonobo Way author and debate moderator Dr. Susan Block live in-studio will be  Sheree Rose, Mistress Porcelain & Rhiannon Aarons.

"We're very excited to continue Kink Month with these three fabulous Domina artists.. Just as Good Vibrations declared May to be Masturbation Month, Stockroom has designated October as 'Kink Month,' encouraging kinksters in and out of closets around the globe to let their freak flags fly,an aspect of releasing your inner bonobo," says Dr. Block. "It’s all in the Halloween holiday spirit of revelry, roleplay, masquerade, adventure and playing (consensually, of course!) with fear as an aphrodisiac, not to mention buying lots of kinky paddles, padlocks and piggie hoods from places like Stockroom."

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.

Professional Experience

Sex Therapy

1991-Present– Founder and Director of the Dr. Susan Block Institute for the Erotic Arts & Sciences. The foundation of the Institute’s sex therapy system is based on the principles of Dr. Block’s world-renowned philosophy of the Bonobo Way of “peace through pleasure.” The Institute treats most so-called “sexual dysfunctions” i.e.: sexual arousal disorders, low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, unwanted sexual fetishes, disturbing erotic fantasies, lack of sexual confidence, communication issues, dating anxiety and sexual obsession. The Institute also treats destructive sexual habits (sometimes called “sex addictions”), premature ejaculation, difficulties achieving orgasm and other orgasm disorders, including painful sex and sexual problems caused by stress, fatigue, aging changes and other environmental, family and relationship factors. In addition, the Institute treats adults suffering from the lingering effects of sexual assault, incest, childhood trauma and religious sexual abuse. We also help individuals and couples, claiming no dysfunction, to lead more stimulating, creative and rewarding sexual lives. This system utilizes, in-depth, Kinsey-style client interviews and analysis, erotic theater therapy, fantasy role-play, Masters & Johnson techniques, G-spot, P-spot and PC muscle exercises, fetish exploration systems, sexual confidence building, the “sperm wars” view of monogamy, sensate focus touching, intercourse and outercourse, compassionate S/M and bondage play, bonobo therapy, issue-focused phone sex therapy, transgender facilitation, erotic hypnosis and many other “pleasure sex” techniques that the Institute has successfully used to help thousands of men, women, couples and communities around the world to enhance and enjoy their sexuality in a multitude of traditional and innovative ways. This not only improves their sex lives, but has a positive and rejuvenating effect upon other aspects of everyday life including but not limited to, general health, work, creativity, self-esteem, family and social relationships.
