BDSM as a Healing Tool with Andrea Glik - Ep 119

Play
Read more

On episode 119 of American Sex Podcast, we learn about using BDSM as a healing tool with Andrea Glik, LMSW. She explains the impact trauma has on our nervous system, how depression can be a survival response, the stress response cycle, and the difference between glimmers and triggers. We dive into how BDSM can be used to heal trauma and how she integrates BDSM into her therapy sessions. Discover how BDSM can be therapeutic for both submissives and dominants plus how healing can manifest through consensual nonconsent, little space, subspace, aftercare, and more. Even if you don’t consider yourself a BDSM practitioner, this episode will help you figure out how trauma and shame affect your sexual identity. This is also a highly recommended listen for mental health providers and those struggling to get their therapists to understand the importance of kink in their lives.

LITQB Podcast: This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves. This is a podcast for people who identify as queer or for people who might think of their relationship between their body and confining social narratives as queer. This can feel like an isolating experience.  Our wounded bodies need spaces to talk about struggles with nourishment/disordered eating, body image issues, dysphoria, racism, heterosexism, transphobia, xenophobia, substance use/abuse, chronic pain/disability, body changes in parenthood, intergenerational trauma, the medical/wellness/therapy industrial complex and its lack of inclusion of queer bodies and much more. Hopefully this podcast can illustrate the connections, and resonant pain points, that we have with one another. Livinginthisqueerbody.com  @livinginthisqueerbody

Andrea Glik: On De-pathologizing our Stories, the Significance of Pleasure to Healing + What Kink has to Teach Us about Sex

Play
Read more

Andrea Glik is a queer, somatic trauma therapist who uses body-based and queer/kink/trans/poly-affirming techniques to work with clients towards inhabiting their lives and bodies. She talks to us about the harm of over-pathologizing our experience, how to begin to feel safe in your body + opening up to your worthiness and capacity for pleasure.

We discuss

  • Andrea’s background working on a suicide hotline
  • Identifying the resources and tools you already have
  • Disembodiment while going through the motions of being embodied
  • Using the breath as a neutral tool for somatic experience
  • Where to start when “be here now” is unsafe?
  • How it is unhelpful to over pathologize and over diagnose experiences or have that done to us.
  • How pain and pleasure relate
  • How our capacity for pleasure can signify healing
  • Working through shame around pleasure, which can also be about worthiness
  • Looking at attachment styles and how they affect relationships
  • How to cultivate your capacity and consciousness around pleasure in your life
  • Letting your experience be on a spectrum
  • How healing play and curiosity are
  • How kink can relate to somatic healing
  • What kink has to teach us about communication, consent, play and body awareness
  • How the earth holds so much pleasure for us

Andrea Glik: Consensual Non-consent

Play
Read more

“We are made to feel powerless non-consensually all the time. This is an opportunity to take the power back.” /

Content warning: This is conversation between two queer women about erotic fantasies that involve themes of force and violation. 

Rape scenes are the most fundamental yet thorniest of sexual fantasies. Whether it's force and resistance, psychological control, or emotional humiliation, why are we drawn erotically to things we don't actually want to do or have happen to us? In this episode, we unpack the paradox of consensual non-consent. Andrea brings her training as a therapist to help us understand the difference between abuse and kink play. She also gives some tips for healthy communication within a BDSM power dynamic. /

Andrea Glik, LMSW is a psychotherapist, somatic healer, sex educator, and witch. Andrea specializes in treating trauma and PTSD for queer & trans folks, using body based and feminist therapy practices to help clients come home to themselves. Andrea practices at The Gender & Sexuality Therapy Collective in NYC.
