LOS ANGELES — Susan M. Block, Ph.D., internationally renowned sexologist and author of "The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace Through Pleasure," will present "The Bonobo Way: A New Femdom Paradigm for Humanity" at DomCon Los Angeles on Sat., May 21 at 4:30 p.m.

"I look forward to bringing the good news about the primal female empowerment of the Bonobo Way to the fabulous femdoms of DomCon and others attending this exciting, educational convention founded by veteran BDSM powerhouse Mistress Cyan," Block said.

Inspired by the real bonobo apes, Block will present the Bonobo Way as a new paradigm for humanity in terms of sexuality, war, peace, community and the balance of gender power.

"For decades," Block said, "male apologists and arms dealers have used the patriarchal 'killer ape' model to explain and excuse male-dominated abuse, murder and war. But now we're just discovering our kissing cousins, the bonobos, who are at least as close to humans as common chimpanzees are. Yet bonobos have never been seen killing each other. Instead, they utilize female empowerment, sex, the sharing of resources and an intriguing kind of Bonobo BDSM to make peace through pleasure, diffusing violent tensions before they descend into murder, war or the chimp equivalent of a Trump rally. How do bonobos do this, and can we humans learn to make like bonobos, not baboons, and truly empower our females?" 

Bonobo apes, Block said, must be saved from extinction.

"Bonobo conservation is integral to the Bonobo Way," Block said. "If we lose the bonobos, then we lose a key to female empowerment that we can never find again."

In the past few weeks, Block has lectured on aspects of the Bonobo Way at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez and at UC Berkeley for the 5th Conference on Monogamy and Nonmonogamy.

Block said, "Can we live in femdom harmony with each other and the Earth? At this especially turbulent point in human history, it's worth a try."

DomCon Los Angeles will be held May 18-22 at the LAX Airport Hilton.
