If you’re White, keep reading! Don’t make the mistake of thinking these Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) BDSM resources don’t pertain to you. They absolutely do. 

In the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other Black people, we, like so many Americans, have joined the effort to prevent such atrocities from occurring in the future. But the changes that need to occur in this country go far beyond ending police brutality. Every community needs to take a step back and reflect on what it can do to not only make space for BIPOC but ensure they are welcome participants and leaders. And the BDSM community is no exception.

As two White people, we can’t pretend to know what it’s like to join the BDSM community as BIPOC. But, we can acknowledge that racism exists within the community and do our part to educate ourselves and others about it and increase readers’ exposure to BIPOC who teach and write about BDSM. It’s in everyone’s best interest to learn about other people’s experiences and perspectives. To that end, we have begun to compile a list of BDSM resources related to BIPOC. 

The list below has also been added to the BDSM Resources section of our blog. If you’re aware of additional BIPOC BDSM resources we should check out, please let us know in the comments! This list is only a starting point and is by no means exhaustive.

Perspectives from BIPOC

BIPOC BDSM Educators 

  • Eternal Angel: A pro domme and BDSM educator specializing in mental health in BDSM, edge play, and more. Her videos on Kink Academy focus on rough body play. 
  • Midori: Highly experienced sexuality and BDSM educator who teaches and writes on a range of topics, including female domination, rope, and humiliation. Author of The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, among other books. We attended a rope class she taught a number of years ago that included a riveting demo that we still talk about today.  
  • Mollena Williams: Renowned BDSM educator, author, and slave who is a thought leader on race play and power exchange dynamics, among other things.   
  • Orpheus Black: Dominant specializing in knife play, flogging, and other aspects of BDSM, which are covered in his videos on Kink Academy. We attended a flogging class he taught at a convention, and it was by far the best class we went to there.
  • Robin Wilson-Beattie: Disability and sexuality health educator with a number of videos on Kink Academy related to BDSM and disability.
  • Shakti Bliss Bunny: Rope educator focusing on “centering Black kinsters in their reclamation of their joy and sensual exploration.”
