When we last talked to sex therapist Dulcinea Pitagora, they were already a renowned academic and member of the sexuality professionals community: “a queer/poly/kink-identified, female-bodied, gender fluid/non-binary, licensed psychotherapist and sex therapist practicing in New York City.”
Our last conversation was in anticipation of the first ever Alt Sex NYC Conference (and the next one is taking place this weekend!) but this time we’re talking to DOCTOR Pitagora. They have recently defended a dissertation on- you guessed it: The Role of BDSM Orientation on Heteronormativity and Shame in Anoreceptive Heterosexual Males.
We chat about this research, the perils of the IRB (Institutional Review Board- the body that approves research using human subjects), eschewing gendered titles, whether or not I count as a sadist, and so much more.
