Dr. Suzy’s B-Day & Speakeasy Magazine Launch Party this Saturday Night, June 9th, in Bonoboville

 

20180512_magazine_launch-dr_s_birthday

This Saturday night, June 9th, 2018, The Dr. Susan Block Show goes bonobos for our very own Dr. Susan Block as we celebrate her birthday in style! Before we get to the on-air Birthday Bash, we start the evening off from 8pm to 10pm with the Birth of a Magazine, a launch party for Dr. Suzy’s new Speakeasy Journal! Filled with unique, erotic, and engaging pictures and articles, the magazine is perfect for all sapiosexuals. The first edition: “Splosh ‘n’ Art” features Daniele Watts, Chef Be*Live, Gypsy Bonobo, Madame Margherite, Imani Cupe’, Michael Wiznu, Ikkor and more.

Joining our host and Bonobo Way author Dr. Suzy for the show will be her husband, executive publisher and “reader-written publishing” pioneer, Capt’n Max, plus a bevy of All-Star guests including Goddess Phoenix, Lexi Lore, Madame Margherite, Rhiannon Aarons, Mistress Kara, Lexi Mansfield, Janelle Hopkins, Jezebel SweetRon Jeremy, Daniele Watts, Chef Be*Live, Rocky Foxx, Lillith Lust, Surka Noelle, Jack Friday, Christianna Cinn, Chynna Doll, Jesse Prather, Tyler Daniels, Professor Oni, Danni Dawson, Moushumi Ghose, Wry MantioneDeryk WilderShana LaySelina Minx, Imani Cupe’Greg FriedmanMadam Raven Rae, Slave WinnieMistress Tara IndianaShaminatrix Missy GaloreIsiah MaxwellNori Carter, FreekBALL, Frank Thomas, James McGuffin, Nicole Samrand, Riz Story and more, including Dr. Suzy’s fabulous Ass. Producer Phoenix Dawn and Bonoboville’s star hip-hop artist Ikkor the Wolf.

Dr. Susan Block’s Speakeasy Journals are based on the history, philosophy, therapy, politics, photography and archives of The Dr. Susan Block Show, spanning 30 years of broadcasting and performance art. The theme of this premiere print edition is “Splosh ‘n’ Art,” featuring a Commedia Erotica cast of artists, exhibitionists, vegan chefs, junk food lovers and FemDoms, showcasing the convergence of food and sex through art and kink. “Sploshing” is erotic food play. Sploshers spray, drip, dump, rub, mush or cover each other in foods of different flavors and textures. As you’ll see, things get a little messy. But that’s the beauty of splosh… and art. This issue explores such delicious subjects as playing with food, the psychology of splosh, faux cannibalism, “sploshgasms” and (of course) sploshing Trump. This first issue is a must for collectors of print media, researchers, human sexuality students, art enthusiasts, adventurous couples, think-outside-the-boxers, political resisters, food fetishists and splosh lovers. It’s unique, fun, informative, and a great way to spice up your sex life! All issues of Dr. Block’s Speakeasy Journal are dedicated to saving one of humanity’s closest living relatives, our kissing cousins, the highly endangered, “make love not war” bonobo apes.

Click Here to RSVP to attend the Speakeasy Journal Launch Party and Live DrSuzy.Tv Show in the “Speakeasy” studio audience this Saturday, or call 310.568.0066 (you can call anytime; someone is always here). Studio doors open at 8pm. Studio Members FREE. Membership Has Its Pleasures.

Religious Sexual Abuse Therapy

 

Religious-Sexual-Abuse-Therapy-Banner

Are you a victim of religious sexual abuse?

Were you raised in a strict religious environment?

Call Us 24/7 at 213.291.9497

Do you feel that your sexuality has been hurt, warped or excessively restricted by a harsh, authoritarian, “divinely” inspired, anti-sex  upbringing?

Are you concerned that an unhealthy, fundamentalist or orthodox religious approach to life is repressing, oppressing, distorting or destroying your sexuality, your marriage, or your life in general?

Religious-Symbols-II1

The Dr. Susan Block Institute specializes in treating victims of religious sexual abuse and others whose sex lives have been damaged by strict, religious, anti-sex indoctrination.    Institute Director Dr. Susan Block, a Yale University graduate with a PhD from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality,  is one of the world’s foremost experts in issues pertaining to sex and religion.  If you need help, or if you just need to talk, give us a call anytime 24/7 at 213.291.9497.  You can talk to Dr. Block herself or one of our many other telephone sex therapists.  Someone is always here for you.

Of course, there are important differences between the many religions of the world and their specific rules governing sexual conduct.  But whether you were raised Christian, Catholic, Sunni, Sufi or Shi’ite Muslim, Jewish (ethnic or Orthodox), Hindu, Mormon, Coptic, Buddhist, Born Again, Scientologist or any other faith of a heavenly higher power, clergy and other authority figures may have used unreasonable, anti-sex and/or self-serving interpretations of scripture or religious law to control your sexuality and  inflict deep, long-lasting damage.

Religious Sexual Abuse can take many forms.  It may be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.  Most often, it begins in early childhood.  The scars may be lasting, but the pain can be healed with a little bit of reason and a lot of love.

Do you think you may have been abused by a misuse of the power of religion?  Were you taught as a child to fear sex, your naked body, your genitalia, your feelings, fantasies or desires?

Were you beaten as a child for being bad?  Were you told that God would punish you for your natural erotic curiosity?  Were you ever pressured or forced to do sexual things or not do sexual things by a member of the clergy or other trusted adult authority figure who coerced you in the name of God?

Were you pressured to accept things that didn’t make sense just because they were in the Bible, Koran or other Holy Book or scripture?  Are you tired of the heavenly lies and fairy tales?

Were you told that masturbation was a mortal sin?

Do you feel controlled by your religion?

Do you feel that you can’t “be yourself,” sexually speaking, for fear of how God, your family or your religious community might react?

Is excessive religiosity driving you in the opposite direction, toward what some people call “sex addiction,” an obsession with porn or other types of illicit sex?

Are you aroused by breaking taboos?  Do you find yourself fantasizing about engaging in sexual activities that go against your moral code?

Are you attracted to people of other faiths or ethnic groups, even though your family would disapprove?  Are you turned on by  “extreme” ethnic Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Atheists or others–partly because your religious community considers them to be the forbidden “other”?

Do you find yourself obsessed with humiliating your own or other religions, like the “Innocence of Muslims,” the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” or “Christian-bashing?”  Do you have sexual fantasies about Christian Crusaders, Arab-Israeli Conflicts, Jihad, martyrs or other types of eroticized Holy Wars?

Do you find yourself getting aroused by fantasies of violent sex or violence against people of “other” religions?

Have you developed sexual “hang-ups” or unwanted fetishes that might stem from your religious upbringing?

Do you find you are unable to “perform” or enjoy sex, even with your spouse, because of deep feelings of guilt and/or shame?

Do you feel that your sexual desires might condemn you to burn in hell?

Do you ever fantasize about erotic acts of blasphemy?

Have you have done or fantasized about doing kinky things in church, temple, mosque or synagogue?  Have you ever had or fantasized about having sex with nuns, priests, imams, ayatollahs, mullahs, rabbis, monks or other clergy?

Or are you, perhaps, a member of the clergy leading a double life?  Preaching a strict abstinence-only doctrine by day and practicing your secret sexual fetish by night?

Do you feel alone, confused and/or concerned about this?

Would you like to talk about it with someone who understands and will listen and talk to you, in complete privacy and confidentiality?

Need to talk to someone about something you can’t talk about with anyone else?
You can talk to us.

Block Institute Director Susan M Block, Ph.D.

Experience Telephone Sex Therapy
More private than a “confession booth,”  and a lot more helpful.

Perhaps you’d like a fresh perspective on the relationship of sex and God, or sexuality and spirituality.  Maybe you need help with processing religiously inspired, sex-negative messages in yourself or in your loved one.  Perhaps you need the strength to stand up for your personal sexual “rights” against unreasonable religious dogma.  Then again, maybe you just need some help from a real “sexpert” in finding ways to explore, express and satisfy your sexual desires without breaking the rules of your religion or compromising your faith.

For information about our telephone sex therapy, webcam and sext therapy services, call 213.291.9497.

Stop The Wars.  Let Us Bring You Peace Through Pleasure.

You won’t go to hell for it.  But you just might feel a whole lot better.
