Kinky Sex: When Did BDSM Become So Wildly Popular?

on Wednesday, 09 June 2010. Hits 898


AlterNet

DSM-IV, which was published in 1992, defined kinky behavior as a “paraphilia,” a fancy word for any path to sexual arousal that’s not standard foreplay. The language of DSM-IV “is unclear and sometimes contradictory about whether a paraphilia is a disorder,” says Susan Wright, spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), an advocacy group for the BDSM, swing and polyamory communities. Although the language hasn’t been finalized, it’s looking as if DSM-V, which will be published in 2013, will make it clear that a person can be kinky without having a disorder.

Graphic Sexual Horror taken down by Amazon

From: Barbara Bell and Anna Lorentzon

Directors of Graphic Sexual Horror www.graphicsexualhorror.com
 
Last Friday, Graphic Sexual Horror was finally up on Amazon for digital download and VOD. Yesterday morning, I got this email from our digital distributor:"We just spoke with Amazon, who unfortunately need to pull the film from their storefront given some explicit issues. We will keep you posted on Netflix and everything else. Thanks very much."
Thanks to all of you who rented and watched the film, we were on Amazon's top 10 list of both documentary and independent films for the days it was available.
The DVD release also had to be put off until summer because Warner Distribution refused to carry it on "moral" grounds. The DVD release is planned for this summer.
If any of you want to let Amazon.com know that you would like to see the film, please let them know at this link:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/contact-us/general-questions.html?ie=UTF8&nodeId=518316&type=email&skip=true#csTop
Netflix has it listed, but it is not yet available. add it to your Netflix queue to improve chances that it will be available there soon.
And we'd appreciate it very much if you would pass this mail on to friends or groups.
Thanks so much!
Barb
