Race play has long been viewed as a taboo kink in BDSM practice. Because of the provocative nature of such behavior, race play has its share of detractors and attractors alike. The cultural history of the United States is enmeshed with the intersecting domains of racism, violence, and the policing of sexual mores. As such, the lines between behavioral play that is perceived as being acceptable or abhorrent are often blurred, especially for people of color in the BDSM community. This presentation will focus on race play from the African American perspective, and the potentially burdensome impact of history on such persons.
