ONLINE: Stand Back I'm Going To Try...Science!
NOTE: This will be an online class via Zoom. Zoom information will be sent to all participants one hour before the event.
To all the geeks out there who think a ridiculous PowerPoint deck, multiple choice poll questions, and an extensive bibliography sounds like a good time, this one's for you! Extreme science nerd Shay will provide a broad overview of their favorite kink-related (or kink-applicable, or even just too damned interesting to leave out) studies and geeky tidbits, and relate these to a ridiculously broad array of BDSM topics. From cognitive biases to optimal wound healing to hedonic reversal to the vagus nerve to pain processing to vector forces to mirror neurons, we'll examine questions as basic as "why are we into this kinky stuff, anyway" and as specific as "what is the best skin cleaning agent" and "why shouldn't I string a line between two trees and use it as a hardpoint?" For science!
