“Can Kink and BDSM be used to intentionally help and heal people?” 

Inspired from works ranging from The Vagina Monologues to 50 Shades of Grey, A Kink in the Cure is an entertaining, thought provoking, and moving performance that explores the possibility of using BDSM and kinky sex along the path to healing.

Join us for this 18+ performance at Gallery Erato in Seattle, the new home of the Foundation for Sex Positive Cultre.

Playwright and performer Tim Murray will take you on a unforgettable journey through this ground-breaking work. Immediately following the performance, there will be a Talkback so you can ask Tim for all his juicy stories (or tell one of your own!).

A Kink in the Cure is an humorous and poignant performance exploring the fascinating, and still hidden, stories of abuse survivors who identify as kinky. This multi-media performance is centered on personal stories of survivors who have, with varying levels of success, used BDSM (Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism) to help cope with past trauma or shame.

This work has been presented at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival, Sin City 8, Amherst College, Cornell College, Blush & Blu, and the Harry Mohney Erotic Heritage Museum.  Additionally, A Kink in the Cure was this year’s feature performance for the sold out AASECT National Conference.

By sharing these stories, we hope to increase awareness and to support other survivors on their journeys.

Join us. Together, we can eradicate sexual shame.
