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 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!

Previous attendees of this class have said:

"I love love loved your class. I enjoyed the choose your own adventure aspect and the sheer quantity of topics. I was quite impressed by both the number of poll questions (so fun! so engaging!) and the ability to jump around in the slides. The fire hose style of information made it easy to not feel like I had to grasp and memorize every individual fact. I could see and feel how much time and love you'd put into learning about these topics, and your enthusiasm is always infectious. Thank you again, and congratulations on creating a fantastic new online kinky course!" - spectacles

"Your class was brilliant. Its been awhile since I've stayed up till 1am just learning about science. Thank you so much again, you made science fun for me again." - meliodas

"Thank you very much for presenting the science class! I was looking forward to this since I first saw it posted, and it lived up to every expectation. The time and care you put into the research clearly showed -- as did the time and care you put into presentation style. I've been continually impressed with how you manage to project energy to an unseen audience. Your presentations have been distinct bright spots in this period of isolation. Thank you very much for all that you do!" - kia
