The seething sexuality of slasher films and Suicide Girls illustrate that concepts of death and sex are inseparable in our minds. But Death is the ultimate "no fly" zone of fetishes, too scary and immediate for many to be comfortable with. We all know that fantasizing doesn't mean wanting, but when it comes to death too many TV shows have convinced us that we shouldn't dig too deep, leaving players willing to transgress the taboo without a playbook or the safety tips that routinely cover other areas of fetish. We'll investigate the roots of our sexualized obsession with death, and look into ways that deathplay can be incorporated into our scenes with a strong eye towards safety, physical and emotional.
James Gordon & Rebecca Doll are partners who share membership in the House of Artemisia. Holding a Certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy, James belongs to the generation who learned kink on the internet, in the bedroom, and at events. His focus shifted to M/s dynamics and erotic hypnosis in the early 2000s, developing over 15 years into a modern interpretation of power exchange that explores the human need for structure, chaos, dominance and submission. Rebecca enjoys being pretty and pleasing. As an extreme exhibitionist pain slut, she loves being put through her paces publicly. Still, physicality is not the core of her interests. Most of her work focuses on exploring the more twisted desires of the human mind, putting her M.Ed. to use understanding the human needs for control, violence, and self-destruction.
