BONOBO WAY bound for DOMCON LA 2019

Domcon 2019 Banner V3

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Apr. 30, 2019 — 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 of BDSM, at DOMCON LA 2019 on Saturday, May 11, 2019 1-2 p.m.in Room B1 of the Hilton Hotel LAX.

“I’m really looking forward to returning to the fabulous, kinky 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, going bonobos to slow climate change, bisexuality/pansexuality and “incel” therapy in a natural femocracy.

Accompanying her talk will be fascinating film footage of bonobos in the wild and the zoo, as well as live human Commedia Erotica dramatization, topping it all off with Bonobo Way book-spankings. 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), and she is about to publish a new “Spank ‘n’ Art” issue of Dr. Block’s Speakeasy Journal. “Adult consensual impact play, BDSM and even a little loving erotic humiliation have great healing power for bonobos as well as humans,” observes Block. “Consider how the brief spanking that Stormy Daniels gave a certain exceedingly narcissistic future president made him stop bragging about himself long enough to have an almost normal conversation—and sex (albeit ‘mediocre’)!”

“Dr. Suzy is phenomenal!” declared world-renowned domina, Goddess Soma Snakeoil, after attending last year’s packed presentation. “I loved this class. It was such a joy, and I learned so much!”

In this year’s Commedia Erotica dramatizations, Block will be assisted by her Dr. Susan Block Show assistant, Blossom Green, as well as “Most Well-Rounded Kinkster” SUZY award winner, MFA and award-winning filmmaker Rhiannon Aarons, Block Institute sex therapist Del Rey and more TBA, demonstrating bonobo play, conflict resolution,”hoka hoka” and female empowerment, “penis fencing” and male well-being and the “Trust Game.”

“In 2019, bonobo culture is more timely than ever,” Block continues. “Women are taking power in Congress and the bedroom. It’s awesome, but some people are afraid it’s ‘unnatural.’ 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 release our ‘inner bonobos’ before it’s too late? At this especially turbulent point in human history, it’s worth a try.”

Times are also turbulent 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 we can never find again.”

Besides DomCon 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015, Block has presented The Bonobo Way of Inclusivity at AASECT 2016 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and she will be delivering The Bonobo Way of Transformational, Healing Pleasure at AASECT 2019. She 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 presented The Bonobo Way of Great Sex at Adultcon LA. She has also spoken about the Bonobo Way at USC, UCLA and Caltech, for MENSA and the Young Presidents Organization. These presentations and others are made possible, in part, thanks to Malcolm Jones and the Bonobo Way Female Empowerment Outreach Project.

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

Founded by Mistress Cyan St. James, DOMCON LA is “the world’s largest professional and lifestyle domination convention.” DomCon LA 2019 will be held May 8-12. FemDoms of the Wild: The Bonobo Way of BDSM is scheduled for 1-2 PM on Saturday, May 11, 2019. Get tickets here. 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 2019 or to arrange an interview, please call 310-568-0066.

Bonobo Conservation Revolution with Deni Béchard this Saturday on The Dr. Susan Block Show

This Saturday, November 30th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will observe the “Thanksgivikkah” holiday weekend with a special live broadcast about the great strides now being made in bonobo conservation and the urgent challenges ahead for those of us who care about our “Make-Love-Not-War” ape cousins and all of nature.

EmptyHandsOpenArms


Joining international sexologist Dr. Susan Block live via webcam will be award-winning author Deni Béchard, whose captivating new book, Empty Hands, Open Arms: The Race to Save Bonobos in the Congo and Make Conservation Go Viral, focuses on the exciting work of Dr. Block’s old friend Sally Jewell Coxe and the Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI), a revolutionary organization which uses what Béchard calls “a truly postcolonial model of conservation” to help save the bonobos and the rainforest..

Deni Béchard will join us 11/30 to talk bonobos!

Deni Béchard will join us 11/30 to talk about the bonobo conservation revolution!

“I’ve watched BCI grow from a gleam in Sally Coxe’s luminous green eyes back in 1997 to an active international organization that is really making a difference in the future of bonobos, as well as other wild life and human life in the region, becoming a model for a new kind of inclusive, bonoboësque conservation,” says Dr. Block. “So I’m really looking forward to talking with Deni Béchard about his eloquent new book that delves deeply into Sally’s ground-breaking conservation work with bonobos and people, including BCI’s visionary yet sustainable constellation of linked community-based reserves, the ‘Bonobo Peace Forest’. On this Thanksgiving/Thanksgivukkah holiday, let us give thanks that bonobos still exist, and we have a chance to save them from extinction. Let’s not lose that chance.”

Dare to Free Your Inner Bonobo & Be All You Can Be!

Call 213.291.9497

 People are going bonobos.  It sounds like a hot new dance and, in a way, it is.  But if you don’t know a bonobo from a banana, you really should read Dr. Block’s new book The Bonobo Way to learn the basics about our “Make Love Not War” Great Ape close cousins who swing through the trees as well as with each other.

inner-bonobo

  Then, when you’re ready to liberate your inner bonobo and be all you can be—in the bedroom and everywhere else—call the therapists of the Dr. Susan Block Institute at 626-461-5950.

 The Dr. Susan Block Institute and Block Bonobo Foundation are dedicated to protecting, promoting and researching bonobo chimpanzees, as well as educating people in The Bonobo Way; that is, how these great apes use sex to maintain peace, playfulness and gender equality in their societies, and how we can learn something from them about sex, love and peace on earth.

Whether or not you liberate your inner bonobo, we urge you to help save the real bonobos in the rainforest from imminent extinction.  Here are some places where you can donate:
