“I’m delighted to return to DomCon as a Guest of Honor,” says Block, “and excited to talk more about how bonobos, the amazing FemDoms of the Wild, can empower human kinksters and humanity in general.”
Inspired by the real bonobo apes, Block will present the Bonobo Way as an “alternative” primate paradigm focused on sex, peace, community and the balance of gender power. “For decades, male apologists and arms dealers have used the patriarchal “killer ape” model, based on common chimpanzees and baboons, to explain and excuse male-dominated abuse, from the home front to the war front,” observes Block. “However, bonobos are at least as close to humans genetically as common chimps (and much closer than baboons), and they have never been seen killing each other in the wild or captivity. Instead, they utilize sexual play, female empowerment, the sharing of resources and a kind of ‘Bonobo BDSM’ to defuse violent tensions before they descend into murder, war or the chimp equivalent of a Trump rally. How do they do this, and can we humans learn to make like bonobos (not baboons)? Can we live in harmonious femocracy with each other and the Earth? Can we make peace through pleasure and empower our females? Can we release our ‘inner bonobos’… before it’s too late? At this especially turbulent point in human history, it’s worth the pursuit.”
