This Funzing Experience:
Does leather do it for you or maybe you are into latex? Are you considering a group encounter? Or maybe you like to dress up? Join intimacy expert Colin Richards for an evening, exploring the world of fetishes and fantasies.

I have a book that contains over one thousand different sexual fantasies and fetishes. Some are quite simple, some are more complex and adventurous, some are just downright bizarre but all will have a motivation at their core. If you have come across this in a relationship then unless you are both on board with the particular fantasy or fetish it can become an area of conflict and misunderstanding.

In this talk, Colin presents his theories on what he believes influences us to have a sexual fantasy, fetish or kink. This refreshing entertaining talk is mostly taken from his unique field of work as sex engineer, rather than academic research.

We are not born with them so something must influence us to develop them and there must be a reason why we want to experience them. This talk briefly explores the possible biological, psychological and anthropological motivations that could be at the root of our sexual and emotional imaginations and behaviours.

Colin gives insight into real stories about real people who enjoy a fetish or kink and then offers his own opinion, which can sometimes be controversial, that is based on past case studies and his knowledge of the Imago process (Harvil Hendrix & Helen Hunt, Imagorelationships.org). ' The brain has an unconscious drive is to fulfil missed development or to repair the damage done in childhood, or needs not met, by finding a partner or behaviour that can give us what our caretakers failed to provide.

This talk is good for the person stepping into the world of fetish and kink or someone in a relationship with a person who has fetish or kink and wants to understand it better. However, if you are an experienced fetishist or a professional/student in psychology this talk may be covering old ground but it should give an alternative perspective that may broaden your knowledge.

Definitions:
Fetish – Any object or non-genital part of the body that causes an erotic response
Fantasy – An imagined sequence fulfilling a psychological need
Caution – This talk includes references to sexual practices so open-mindedness is essential if attending this talk
