A few weeks ago, my producer Nathan and I ventured to North Philly for a fun round table discussion with some of the board and members of the Philly Music Hall, a fairly new community for folks interested in alternative types of sexuality: kinksters, the ethically non-monogamous, queer folks, people who like to play with power dynamics, and anyone who wants to play and explore.
We talked about what made this space different from other places where BDSM is usually practiced and the limited ways in which alt-sex is depicted in media. Most of the time it’s only seen as taking place in a dark, thumping nightclub where Nine Inch Nails plays and everyone is in latex. But there are far more options.
Check out the first part of this conversation here and then check out this, the second and final segment.
