Beyond Whips & Chains: What Medical Students Need to Know about BDSM.
Informative and thoughtful presentation for medical providers about what BDSM IS and ISN'T written by Sara Thorp. A must see for every healthcare provider.

 

IMPACT. A 6 minute video featuring one of our Community Advisory Board members, Mollena Williams, "playing" with a variety of tops. This is a great introduction for clinicians who wonder what real life BDSM can be like. A few images may be disturbing, but you may be surprised at how lighthearted and funny much of the play is.

 

Addressing the Healthcare Needs of Sexual Minorities Patients. A nicely written article by Charles Moser, PhD, MD, the foremost expert on the medical care of kinksters.



Health Care Without Shame, by Charles Moser, PhD, MD. An excellent and practical book full of information for clinicians.

 

The difference between BDSM and abuse. A useful guide from www.bdsmtrainingacademy.com. 

 

Patient Sexual Health History: What You Need to Know to Help.  A 10 minute video on taking a balanced and open-minded sexual history. Surprisingly progressive for the AMA!
