Sunny Megatron Kink Myth Busting Podcast ep 191 american sex podcast episode artKink & BDSM stigma is alive and well–in the mainstream, in our own communities, and even in professional and academic spheres. In episode 191 of American Sex Podcast, Sunny Megatron busts some of the most common myths and provides clinical & academic resources for therapists, academics, and skeptical naysayers. She deconstructs the following kink & BDSM myths:

  • Kink is always and only sexual, therefore platonic kink does not exist
  • Kink is considered abnormal by psychologists & the scientific community
  • There’s a dramatic difference between academic/clinical understanding of kink (which is always more accurate) and BDSM community education
  • Dark age play aka sexual littles’ play is abusive and akin to pedophilia
  • Kink practitioners engage in unhealthy self-harm by proxy and/or glorify abuse
  • Kinks are caused by unresolved trauma … and more!
