What happens when kink becomes commodified?
This presentation explores how contemporary popular culture portrays BDSM (for better or for worse) and what happens when kink comes out of the dungeon and on to prime time. From “Wonder Woman” to “Family Guy”, kink has been a part of our cultural vocabulary for decades. We’ll take a look at and talk about how kink has effected the media and how the media effects us.
Leila is a graphic designer who has worked in corporate branding for the past 15 years, but has been a pervert for far longer than that. Her blog Kink+Culture is devoted to the exploration of BDSM in art, design, and popular culture. She has presented at Kink For All NYC and has been active in the New York BDSM scene for about 3 years. When she’s not making the world a more beautiful place one logo at a time, she gets hit with stuff for fun.
