Los Angeles, California: May 11, 2016 — Susan M. Block, Ph.D., a.k.a., “Dr. Suzy,” internationally renowned sexologist and best-selling author of The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure (Gardner & Daughters Publishers), will present “The Bonobo Way: A New FemDom Paradigm for Humanity” at DOMCON LA 2016.
“I look forward to bringing the ‘good news’ about the primal female empowerment of the Bonobo Way to the fabulous FemDoms of DomCon and others attending this exciting, educational convention founded by veteran BDSM powerhouse Mistress Cyan,” says Dr. Block.
Inspired by the real bonobo apes, Block will present the Bonobo Way as a new paradigm for humanity in terms of sex, war, peace, community and the balance of gender power. “For decades, male apologists and arms dealers have used the patriarchal “killer ape” model to explain and excuse male-dominated abuse, murder and war,” says Block. “Now we’re just discovering our kissing cousins, the bonobos, who are at least as close to humans as common chimpanzees are. Yet bonobos have never been seen killing each other. Instead, they utilize female empowerment, sexual play, the sharing of resources and an intriguing kind of ‘Bonobo BDSM’ to make peace through pleasure, diffusing violent tensions before they descend into murder, war or the chimp equivalent of a Trump rally. How do bonobos do this, and can we humans learn to ‘make like bonobos (not baboons)’ and truly empower our females? Can we live in FemDom harmony with each other and the Earth? At this especially turbulent point in human history, it’s worth a try.”
It’s also more than “worth a try” to save the highly endangered wild bonobo from extinction. “Bonobo conservation is integral to the Bonobo Way,” says Block. “If we lose the bonobos, then we lose a key to female empowerment that we can never find again.”
In the past few weeks, Block has given talks on various aspects of The Bonobo Way at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, delivering the keynote to the world’s first Ecosexuality Symposium at an academic institution, and at UC Berkeley for the 5th Conference on Monogamy & Nonmonogamy. On June 11, she will present The Bonobo Way at AASECT (The American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors & Therapists) 48th Annual Conference.
Dr. Block’s DomCon presentation will focus on “Bonobo Female Empowerment” and “Bonobo BDSM,” and will also include live “book-spankings,” as well as the usual book-signings. Block wrote the definitions of “erotic spanking,” “sexual fetishes” and “cuckolding,” among others, for the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Sexuality, and her Bonobo Way Book-Spankings are renowned.
DomCon LA 2016 will be held May 18-22 at the LAX Airport Hilton. Get tickets here. The Bonobo Way: A New FemDom Paradigm for Humanity is scheduled for 4:30 pm on May 21, 2016. Attending the Red-Carpet Opening Ceremonies and Fetish Ball, as well as her own presentation, Dr. Block will be wearing original latex designer dresses by Abigail Greydanus of Abigail Greydanus Latex Fashions and Reneé Masoomian of BabyLove’s Latex
