This week host Jon Pressick presents our annual Playground Conference special, highlighting some of the most amazing thinkers and speakers on all topics of sexuality. Jon will be joined by special guest host Stephen Biggs to speak with:
-Nikki Thomas is a former sex worker and self-described “tuition whore” who started in the sex trade at age 26 to pay for her education. A University of Toronto alumna with degrees in political science, sexual diversity studies and psychology, she has since retired from sex work, and now spends her time as a boring, mid-30s suburban soccer mom.
From Happy Hooker to Happy Housewife, she discusses her unique experience going from one of Canada’s most prominent and outspoken sex work activists, to a life considerably more mundane.
-Judi Siklos is a Registered Psychotherapist passionate about healthy relationships, good communication and self-care. She practices within a feminist and anti-oppression framework and will talk your ear off about consent. She is a lover of rope, reading, the outdoors, research studies and animals (actual or otherwise).
-Mistress Isobel is a Dominatrix in Toronto. She uses role-play and improvised storytelling in her practice. She has worked with devised theatre companies in England and Australia, and has collaborated in radical, subversive art projects around the world including plot-driven pornography and erotica.
