Talk: The Psychology of Fetish and Kink with Dr Lori Beth Bisbey
October 24, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFrom £12.93
A recent study in the UK found that approximately 50% of adults reported having a fetish or kink. Despite their prevalence, they are often shrouded in taboo and misunderstanding. In this talk, Dr Lori Beth Bisbey will demystify the topic and answer the often-asked question… Am I normal?
Discover the psychological and social factors that drive fetish and kink behaviours. Explore the ways in which individuals who engage in these practices experience pleasure and fulfillment. You will also be given practical steps on how to explore your own desires, communicate with partners and how to deal with any feelings you have around this aspect of sexuality.
