The Butter Knife

Join Nick Cherryman and their guest expert on the first episode of our new season looking at the BDSM community and the role it plays in ‘queer’ sex. Whether it directly involves individuals from the LGBTQUA+ community or plays at the margins of ‘normative’ sexual practise, this first episode of this season looks at some of the historical precedents surrounding BDSM in the UK and the impact this has had on both the queer community and those who engage in BDSM.
