Talk: The Psychology of Fetish and Kink with Ness Cooper
May 9, 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, mystery and misunderstanding.
Clinical Sexologist and therapist Ness Cooper will look beyond the statics and explore the biosocial psychology behind kink and fetishes. Learn why power dynamics can occur within kink and BDSM and why individuals across the UK are fascinated by kink and fetishism within their relationships, whilst also discovering tips on how to practise these within your own relationships pleasurably.
With a unique opportunity to engage in an open and non-judgmental discussion of fetish and kink, where Ness Cooper will answer questions around erotic orientation and sexuality at the end to help you gain a deeper understanding about the psychology behind these practices.
Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm – come down early to grab a good seat!
