KinkAcademy – Pain, Pain Processing and Fetishism

What is Pain?: What is Pain? How do we respond to pain? These are just two of the questions Lee Harrington addresses in this 7-minute video. In a culture that seeks to eliminate pain, how do we experience pain and discuss that experience with our partners? Lee’s definitions, insights, and recommendations are sure to help us understand each other and communicate better as well.

Pain Processing: Lee Harrington’s second video on pain is a 15-minute discussion on how to adjust (increase or decrease) the amount of pain we take. Lee offers various techniques (body movement, vocalization, breathing, focus, etc.) and shares his wisdom on the motivations and intentions for pain play. If you like to give or receive pain, this video is for you!

Fetishism: What is a fetish, and how do you communicate a fetish to your partner? Lee Harrington helps you answer these questions in this 10-minute video. He defines the commonly misunderstood term fetish from three distinct perspectives: personal longings, clinical definitions, and anthropology. Lee provides a plethora of concrete examples from each viewpoint and also suggests ways to talk about fetishes with others. Truly a must see video!
