Dr Robert J Rubel will be touring Australia in late September. His Rubel Presents website states:
"Robert Rubel (Dr. Bob), is an educational sociologist and researcher by training. He has ten books currently in print (four on Master/slave topics, two on advanced sex techniques, one on fire play, and three erotic art photo books).You'll find a detailed list of Dr Rubel's publications and workshops on that site. For his Sydney workshop schedule see here.
"Recipient of the 2008 Pantheon of Leather’s Community Choice Award, Robert (Bob) Rubel has been involved in the BDSM scene since the summer of 2001, throwing himself into the literature of the field as though it were an academic study. He frequently attends weekend Leather conferences.
"Dr. Bob is the Series Editor of Power Exchange Books’ Resource Series (the successor to Power Exchange Magazine). This is a series of books that are collections of highly focused essays that cover a wide range of special topics within the larger field of BDSM. He presents, judges, and sells his books widely throughout the year. In 2007 and 2008, he participated in over 31 events.
"Bob is also a natural- light photographer"
His Melbourne visit coincides with Oz Kinkfest, so you can check out his program on the Kinkfest schedule page. There's an extremely good deal where you can purchase seats for three workshops for under $100, and sol and I have taken advantage of this, and will be attending workshops relating to these books by Dr Rubel:
- Protocols; Handbook for the female slave (2006)
- Master/slave Relations: Handbook of Theory and Practice (2006)
We look forward to seeing you there :)
