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

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.

Adultcon_DrSusanBlock-Tv

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.

“No On Prop 60” with Adult Superstar Julia Ann & Free Speech Coalition Advocate Siouxsie Q James this Saturday on DrSuzy.Tv!

no-prop-60_drsuzy-tv

This Saturday night, September 17th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will examine California Proposition 60, on the ballot November 8, which targets adult industry performers, requiring them to wear condoms and other latex barriers (including goggles!) on all film shoots, and incentivizing California residents to sue adult performers and producers for not complying with the proposition. Joining international sexologist and Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block live in-studio will be multi-award-winning adult superstar Julia Ann, leading the fight against Prop 60, as well as Free Speech Coalition (FSC) activist adult performer, “The Whore Next Door” columnist for the SF Weekly and Truth, Justice and the American Whore author Siouxsie Q James.

“During this divisive election season, it’s difficult to get Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to agree on anything, but Prop 60 is so poorly drafted that (it) is the only measure on the November ballot with tri-partisan opposition,” states the FSC. “Julia Ann joins the California Democratic Party, the California Republican Party, the California Libertarian Party, Equality California, The Transgender Law Center, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, AIDS Project Los Angeles, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, San Francisco Medical Society, the Friends Committee on National Legislation, the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, Free Speech Coalition and a growing list of organizations that oppose Proposition 60.”

Dr. Suzy is excited to host the dazzling, world-renowned Julia Ann, whom she first interviewed back in 1997 for Playboy TV when the voluptuous blonde was a member of the popular duo “Blondage” with her friend and fellow bombshell Janine Lindemulder. Since then, Julia Ann has gone on to become an adult superstar, earning several AVN awards, including “Best Actress” in 2004 and “Best MILF Performer” in 2010, 2011 and 2013, as well as four XRCO awards and a 2014 XBIZ award for “MILF Performer of the Year.”

Julia Ann’s political activism comes on the heels of being “frustrated with the AHF [AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the sole proponents of the initiative] Prop 60 commercials and it was so bothersome to know that we just can’t compete with that type of campaign since we don’t have the financial means,” she explains. “However, the Adult Industry has cultivated an extreme social media presence and I thought a grassroots effort could shed light onto what is really happening for us and how we truly feel. So, I sat down with the No On 60 buttons [designed by Isabel Dresler] that were already created and formed social media templates so we could educate voters and raise awareness about on our opposition.”

One Weapon of Mass Discussion on sure-to-be sapiosexually stimulating show will be: ARE YOU NEXT? If Prop 60 passes, will its supporters then demand that you and your friends wear condoms and other latex barriers when engaging certain kinds of sex that they deem dangerous? What if you film yourself and your honey making love?

Dr. Susan Block to present the Bonobo Way at AASECT 2016

AASECT_DrSusanBlock_Bonobo

Los Angeles, California: June 1, 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: An Alternative Great Ape Paradigm for Human Sexuality” at the 48th Annual Conference of The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors & Therapists (AASECT), to be held June 8-12 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“I look forward to sharing this very special portion of the ‘Bonobo Sutra’ with my fellow sex educators and therapists,” says Dr. Block who has been presenting various aspects of the Bonobo Way, locally and abroad, at different academic and lifestyle conferences over the past few months, including the keynote address to the world’s first “ecosexuality” symposium in an academic institution, convened at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez by UPRM Humanities Professor SerenaGaia Anderlini D’Onofrio. She also gave a talk on nonmonogamy among bonobos at the 5th International Conference on Monogamy & Nonmonogamy at UC Berkeley; and she just delivered a rousing presentation at DomCon LA 2016 on bonobos as the “Most FemDom Apes on Earth.”

Next, on Saturday, June 11, she will speak at AASECT 2016 where “Putting the Pieces Together: Inclusivity in Practice” will be the conference theme. “A vital piece of the human sexuality puzzle is our interconnected Great Ape nature,” says Block, an AASECT member since 2005. “Bonobos are the most inclusive apes on Earth. They love to share food and sex with friends and strangers. This is deeply linked to another “piece” of the puzzle that bonobos “put together”: peace through pleasure. Bonobos are the only great apes who have never been seen killing each other. We humans can learn a lot from our bonobo cousins about our own sexual diversity, erotic inclusivity, gender equality and inherent potential for harmony. As sex therapists, we can help our clients to release their ‘inner bonobos’ consensually, relatively safely and enjoyably. And speaking of joy, I am overjoyed to return to Puerto Rico, the ecosexual ‘Island of Enchantment’ and a wonderful place to learn about love.”

A consistent message in all of Block’s Bonobo Way talks is the critical importance of saving the highly endangered wild bonobos from imminent extinction, and she encourages her audiences to “adopt a bonobo” with Lola ya Bonobo or the Bonobo Conservation Initiative, among others. “Bonobo conservation is integral to the Bonobo Way,” says Block. “If we lose the bonobos, then we lose a key to understanding human sexuality that we can never find again.”

AASECT 2016 will be held June 8-12, 2016 at the Condado Plaza Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. “The Bonobo Way: An Alternative Great Ape Paradigm for Human Sexuality” is scheduled for 4:15-5:45 pm on June 11, 2016. For information about the Bonobo Way at AASECT 2016 or to arrange an interview with Dr. Susan Block, please call 310-568-0066.

It’s Masturbation Month, a time to honor and extol the virtues of sex-for-one. Virtues? For centuries, masturbation has been denigrated as self-abuse. However, more and more, we are calling it what it is: self-pleasure. It feels good. And it is good. But what is it good for? A lot more than you can stuff in a hand basket. But the following are 8 great basic benefits to masturbation, wanking, jacking off, jilling off, walking the dog, polishing the pearl, spanking the monkey, dancing around the Maypole, sexual solitaire, self-pleasure or, as Doonesbury calls it, ”self-dating,” starting with the fact that….

8-Benefits-Masturbation-8-Natural-1

  1. Masturbation is Natural.

Bonobos do it.  So do dolphins, horses, dogs, kangaroos, porcupines and most other animals, including humans. Ultrasounds show us that many fetuses-in-utero put their tiny hands between their little legs… and masturbate.

8-Benefits-Masturbation-7-Convenient

  1. Masturbation is Convenient.

As Truman Capote once wisely pointed out, “You don’t have to dress up for it.” Come as you are. The Greek philosopher Diogenes praised the extraordinary physical efficiency of masturbation: “Would to heaven that it were enough to rub one’s stomach in order to allay one’s hunger.” The folks who brought the world democracy understood the powerful, positive benefits of solo sex. So did their gods. Maybe we should too.

8-Benefits-Masturbation-6-Ecosexual

  1. Masturbation is Ecosexual.

Though masturbation has been called “self-pollution,” it actually produces very little real pollution (unless you toss your tissues out the car window). Regardless, masturbation is a great form of population control. You won’t get pregnant from it. Do it in the great outdoors (but not in a park where you’ll get arrested), and feel at-one-with-nature. Love the Earth You Make Love On. Just watch out for the poison oak. Also, some fruits and vegetables seem shaped for masturbation. Try a nice cucumber or turnip—Nature’s Own Dildos!

8-Benefits-Masturbation-5-Safe

  1. Masturbation is Safe.

As long as you’re not playing auto-asphyxiation games or sticking lightbulbs up your rectum, you won’t get hurt. As long as you’re just using your own toys or putting condoms on the ones you share, you won’t get an STD. Even more important, you won’t hurt other people. Just in case you’re clueless about consent, masturbation keeps you from raping anyone. If you have problematic sexual desires, if you want to do illegal, immoral, nonconsensual things to people, just don’t do them! Masturbate.

8-Benefits-Masturbation-4-Relaxing-Banner

  1. Masturbation is Relaxing.

Partner sex is more romantic, but it can be stressful in ways that masturbation is not. Director Milos Foreman said, “What I like about masturbation: You don’t have to talk afterwards.” No pressure. Just pleasure. Much like partner sex, orgasms through masturbation can relax you deeply, release your stress and help you to get the deep rest that your body needs.

8-Benefits-Masturbation-3-Educational-Banner

  1. Masturbation is Educational.

When it comes to learning your own turn-ons physically and mentally, you can’t beat masturbation education. You can use your self-pleasure time to practice your kegels, tantric breathing or the stop-start technique. You can test new sex toys more easily when solo-sexing than when you’re with a partner. But mutual masturbation is also educational: show and tell your partner what you like. Talk about home schooling! You won’t want to play hooky from this.

8-Benefits-Masturbation-2-Masturbation-Healthy-Banner

  1. Masturbation is Healthy.

Masturbation, especially when climaxing with a good heart-pumping orgasm, is a great cardio workout, good for your heart rate, blood pressure and brain chemistry. It also protects against yeast infections in women and prostate cancer in men, not to mention, masturbation releases mood-boosting endorphins, and it can clear your sinuses, at least temporarily. It also keeps you in shape for partner sex. “Use it or lose it!” they say, and masturbation uses it. Self-pleasure is healing in a million different ways, physical and mental. Heal your sexual shame through self-pleasure! Most importantly, masturbation will not kill you. Auto-asphyxiation notwithstanding, nobody dies from masturbation.

8-Benefits-Masturbation-1-Know-Thy-Self-Banner

  1. Masturbate: Know Thy Sexual Self!

Nobody talks about it, but the longest term relationship you’ll ever have with anyone is the one you have with yourself. So why not make it a good one? Masturbation enables you get to “Know Thyself” (with a hat tip to Socrates), sexually speaking. So, get into it, and get to know you. Treat yourself. Just for a few moments, focus on your pleasure without worrying about anyone else but you. Turn self-pleasure into self-love. And no, that doesn’t make you selfish. It makes you feel good. And when you feel good, you’re more likely to be good to others.

So go ahead and spank that monkey shamelessly, at least through Masturbation Month. Make love to someone you love tonight… even if that someone is you.

And if you need a hand—a friendly, supportive, knowledgeable, sex-educational guide into your self-pleasure exploration or celebration—the sex therapists of the Block Institute are just a phone call away.
