Gender Non Conforming & Trans BDSM Podcast - Veronika Kestrel American Sex Episode 200

Gender Non Conforming & Trans BDSM Podcast - Veronika Kestrel American Sex Episode 200Veronika Kestrel joins us for a conversation about creating safe & inclusive kink spaces for everyone across the gender spectrum. Despite the BDSM subculture’s roots in the queer community & emphasis on inclusivity, many communities remain steeped in heteronormativity, leading to the fetishization and othering of gender non-conforming and trans people. Some of what we touch on:

  • Why gender bias exists in kink
  • The commodification & politicization of GNC & trans kinksters
  • Tips for vetting communities & individuals
  • The responsibilities of allies & accomplices
  • Issues with sissy play & cuckolding
  • Commonalities between marginalized groups in BDSM & more
