Play, Pain and Religion - Creating Gestalt through Kink Encounter - Alison Robertson

Alison Robertson [+-]
The Open University
Alison Robertson is a research associate with at the Open University. She is interested in the places where the lines commonly drawn between categories (such as ‘religious’ and ‘non-religious’) become blurred or ambiguous and in how such blurring affects the ways people look at the world. Her research interests, other than kink, include lived and personal religion, edgework, and self-inflicted or positive experiences of pain.

Description

Chapter 3 offers, without comment, descriptions of BDSM experience. This is included to assist in addressing the question of how exactly play might progress and what happens within play-spaces, and to avoid the sense of ‘yes, but what do they actually do?' which can be left by definitions alone.
