Satyrs & Porn Stars this Saturday Night Live from Bonoboville on DrSuzy.Tv! Comments Off on Satyrs & Porn Stars this Saturday Night Live from Bonoboville on DrSuzy.Tv!

This Saturday night, April 29th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will observe the Worst First 100 Days of an Unpresidented Presidency and get set for the merry Masturbation Month of May with satirists, satyrs,  porn stars and lovers. Joining international sexologist and Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block will be megawatt bisexual porn star and shameless gamer Riley Reyes, last seen in Bonoboville on Dr. Suzy & Pr.

This show is Ass. Produced by Harry Sapien and Jacquie Blu.

What do satyrs have to do with masturbation? Despite millennia of anti-masturbation mania, there exists some positive folklore on the natural wonders of whacking off. According to the Greeks, masturbation was a gift from the gods. Hermes revealed it to the great god of the wild, Pan (from whom the bonobos take their Latin name Pan Paniscus), after his love for a nymph had gone unrequited, demonstrating how the simple act of masturbation could be an excellent rape prevention technique. Pan then taught the other satyrs and the shepherds—for which we can only assume that the sheep must have been grateful.

Dr. Suzy’s PURIM BACCHANAL 2017 in Bonoboville this Saturday! Comments Off on Dr. Suzy’s PURIM BACCHANAL 2017 in Bonoboville this Saturday!

This Saturday night, March 11th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will celebrate Purim, aka the "Jewish Mardi Gras" or "Hebraic Halloween," that holiday of masquerade, seduction and debauchery revolving around the Story of Queen Esther, the Biblical Trophy Wife who saves her people from genocide with nothing but her Weapons of Mass Seduction.

Warning: This is Not Your Bubbe's Purim.

The world-renowned Commedia Erotica Players--porn stars, poets, BDSM experts and comedians--will improvise Biblical roles as Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block, a former Sunday school teacher turned sexologist, narrates her critically acclaimed, erotic exotic version of the Megillat Esther in the Womb Room, to be transformed into the king’s court and harem, as well as a more bonoboesque “gallows” (a St. Andrew’s bondage cross). Dr. Block's Purimspiel will be performed live on the air before a live studio audience, munching hamantaschen which we in Bonoboville also call "pussy cookies," since they are shaped like an open vulva, complete with a jam-filled hole in the middle. This seems more interesting than the more conventional explanation that their triangular form comes from the villain Haman's hat.

Special guests, performers, participants and celebrants include Ron Jeremy, Mistress Tara Indiana, Amor Hilton, Shannon St. James, Kat Monroe, Karla Lane, Kristen Kraves, Rick Fantana, Jack Cannon, Sheree Rose, Rhiannon Aarons, Madame Margherite, Ikkor the Wolf, Vanessa Block and our own Gypsy Bonobo and Jacquie Blu.

Naughty Winter Solstice with Elvis in Bonoboville & Happy Birthday Madam RavenRae! Comments Off on Naughty Winter Solstice with Elvis in Bonoboville & Happy Birthday Madam RavenRae!

This Saturday night, December 17th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will celebrate Winter Solstice 2016 with "Elvis" in Bonoboville. Joining international sexologist and Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block, and Capt’n Max, will be Elvis Presley tribute artist, Smokey Binion, Jr., plus beautiful and effervescent domina Madam Raven Rae (whose birthday we will be celebrating!), as well as the amazing Daniel Watts, Chef Be*LiVE, Gypsy Bonobo, Paniscus Brecht (all therapists with the Block Institute) + Jacquie Blu - just nominated for a TEAs Award.

A little Solstice history from Dr. Suzy: "Xmas wasn't the first celebration of a December miracle. Winter Solstice or "Sun Birthday" was—and is—when the sun, after being at its lowest, is "born again," as the days begin to get longer. Sex is a vital part of any Winter Solstice celebration worth its egg nog.  To honor the icy season, our polytheistic forbearers would feast and fornicate for days of nonstop bacchanalian orgies that would make Bonnie Rotten pee in her g-string. Over 2000 years before Christianity, Mesopotamia’s Winter Carnaval was a kind of "SeXmas," featuring mummers-style parades with floats carrying scenes of sex among the gods. The Greek Winter Festival honored another populist Son of God with a human mother, who worked miracles, brought forth wine, and was resurrected after death; His name was Dionysus. The Roman Saturnalia, presided over by Old Father Time (a kind of kinky Santa Claus, chortling "Io, io, io!' which is essentially pronounced "Ho, ho, ho!"), included the first Xmas Carols which were truly X-rated, as the carolers (the hoes?) would sing in the nude. To our prehistoric human ancestors, Winter Solstice sex was more than just a personal pleasure or a cool way to keep warm. It was an ecstatic communal coming together, celebrating the erotic fecundity of life in the dead of winter and bringing red-hot "joy to the world" in a season of cold, dark, winter blues."

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

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.

Dr. Susan Block’s Bonobo Way BOUND for DOMCON LA 2016 Comments Off on Dr. Susan Block’s Bonobo Way BOUND for DOMCON LA 2016

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.
