2:45 Geeks and Kink
Teresa Jusino and Pendard sign on as geek experts research the correlation between sci-fi geekiness and kink/BDSM proclivities. Why are so many geeks kink-friendly, and why are so many comic books and sci-fi plots kinky?
- Are sci-fi content creators all kinky, or do the fans demand kink?
- Why are depictions of kink in sic fi more realistic and more accepted?
- Are creators/consumers kinkier than the average bear or just average but more willing to talk about it?
- Four theories on the collision of geeks and kink
- Pendard shares the kinky background of Wonder Woman; was William Marston kinky himself?
- The top five geektastic kinky couples
- Listener question from Graydancer: why are there more “real” geek girls out there now?
- Geek Girl Con
- Listener question from Justin: does the geek/kink connection have to do with intelligence?
