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.”
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.
