Join me for a frank discussion about the history of sadomasochism with author and kinkster Peter Tupper and the release of his book A Lover’s Pinch, A Cultural History of Sadomasochism.

Peter has been researching and blogging about the history of consentual sadomasochism since 2005. Peter is the co-founder of Metro Vancouver Kink, a non-profit BDSM community organization in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and remains active in the BDSM lifestyle. He has lectured at numerous conferences throughout the U.S. and Canada and has appeared on many kink related podcasts.

From publisher Rowman & Littlefield about A Lover’s Pinch

“A worldwide subculture that influences everything from fashion to advertising, sadomasochism has a long and lively history. A Lover’s Pinch tells the story of consensual sadomasochism, from a controversial religious practice to a secretive sexuality branded a perversion. The origins of kink and fetish culture have been shrouded in secrecy and myths, until now. Here, Peter Tupper reveals the true story of sadism and masochism, dominance and submission.”
