Why are dark, disgusting fantasies that are in direct opposition to our moral beliefs some of our biggest turn-ons? How can what’s ‘so wrong’ be ‘so RIGHT’? Mollena Lee Williams-Haas tells us what’s behind this on episode 170 of American Sex Podcast. If your porn search history is twisted, you’re not alone. Taboo kinks are quite normal. We touch on: why the BDSM community can surprisingly be the most judgmental, how to handle it when people yuck your yum, the right and wrong reasons to explore taboo, how some examine oppressive systems like sexism and racism through taboo play, and why the WHY and intention behind it all is the key to everything. Mollena also breaks down a fear many of us wrestle with–will thinking about extreme fantasies push us to act out dangerous things or lead to the erosion of our personal ethics in real life? How can we determine if others will eventually cross that line? Even though the subject matter is dark, this conversation is lighthearted and hilarious too. Laugh your way to “strange boner town” with us!
