On Ep 155 of American Sex Podcast, we explore the intersection of gaming, BDSM roleplaying, and healing. Guest, therapist Nicki Line, uses TTRPGs like Dungeons & Dragons in her practice.  Learn how playing therapeutic games can reveal how you approach relationships, experience anxiety, or become triggered. It’s also a great way to explore hidden parts of ourselves in a safe way without real-world consequences. Some use play to experiment with gender or explore communication obstacles within a polycule. Neurodivergent folks can use it to explore unfamiliar emotional states, social skills, and coping strategies. Kinksters will get inspiration for bringing more role play into their scenes and gamers will get inspiration for incorporating mindfulness into their campaigns.
