THIS WEEKEND! Nancy Ava Miller: PERVERT Extraordinaire and BDSM Pioneer

The Sexploratorium has the distinct pleasure of hosting BDSM pioneer, author, and champion of sex-positivity Nancy Ava Miller!! She will be signing her book PERVERT and teaching two classes this weekend, beginning on Friday April 1st (TOMORROW!). Read on for more information…

About the Author – Nancy Ava Miller

Hypnotherapist, teacher of Transcendental Meditation, former educator and professional writer, Nancy Ava Miller, MEd, dwells in a remote mountain region of New Mexico where she meanders rugged hills with her dogs, meditates, and pens the occasional poem. Her articles and poetry have appeared in numerous publications, including the acclaimed anthology Some Women (Ed. Laura Antoniou, 1997).

Sometimes labeled the Johnny Appleseed of S&M, Nancy once roamed the land creating S&M/fetish support groups. Today—still in the sex biz, as founder/owner of People Exchanging Power—she describes herself as the proud grandmother of a retired Navy man.

About the Book – PERVERT


In her introduction, Nancy Ava Miller claims to have written a book about how she could not write a book about her life in the sex industry.

In so doing, she nevertheless documents the heart of the B&D/S&M netherworld as it existed for many in the 1980s and 90s—the desperation, the obsession, the passion, the gathering together of kinky souls in back alley clubs and support networks, the intimacy, the love, and her own sexual odyssey.

“Nancy’s description of her self-appointed and self-assumed task of forming a support organization, replete with meetings, personalities and organization successes and failures, makes me wonder, ‘Where has something like this been all my life?'” – Bob Richter (Writer, Publisher)

PERVERT was recently nominated for a National Leather Association Writing Award!

An excerpt from PERVERT

From “A Brief Moment in Time: One Recollection of Sexual Domination”
by Nancy Ava Miller

If a person could “go gay” and if I thus decided to do so, Cassie would be the girl I would choose. She’s tall but not too tall with a boyish build—small breasts, slim hips, long lanky legs and arms; and though she’s in her midthirties, she resembles a teenager. Her face, young and fresh, requires no makeup. In fact, makeup might be a detriment for one with skin so clean and eyes possessing a play of light deep inside the pupils, the type of light that earmarks one as intelligent. And indeed, Cassie is intelligent. She even boasts a PhD to prove it.

But it is not so much the sweet looks and erudition that attracts me. In addition to those attributes, Cassie is a slut who craves pain in various forms (the whip, the hot wax upon her nipples) and who’ll readily widen her thighs to accept a dildo or some fluttering fingertips or, for that matter, a fist or dick up her cunt or ass. And because of this—her slutlike nature—it was easy, back in 1990 when I myself became a professional dominatrix, to recruit Cassie when I needed a submissive female for an S&M rendezvous.

MARKETING YOU! The Best Ways to Describe
Your Goals, Your Kink, Yourself
with Nancy Ava Miller

Learn to write a comprehensive, attractive, honest self profile, plus a similar condensed “advertisement.” Learn what makes up both a good and not so good profile. Through meditation, learn to transcend to your inner core of quiet tranquility and creative intelligence, then jot out (on cards) two self descriptions—one long, the other abbreviated. The cards will be exchanged, read aloud, and gently reviewed during further group exchange.  Note: If you miss the advance sale deadline for online tickets, please call Sexploratorium 215-923-1398 after 12 noon to register via telephone the day of the workshop (same day tickets cost $10 more).

Saturday April 2nd, 7-9PM
Power, Control, and Love: Erotic Hypnosis for Masters and Slaves
with Nancy Ava Miller

Using submissive volunteers, Nancy Ava Miller (a certified clinical hypnotherapist and teacher of TM, Transcendental Meditation) will demonstrate how a slave can become more acquiescent, malleable, and obedient for the adored master, and thus how—through Transcendental Meditation—the Master can harness subtle yet powerful control over the beloved slave. Group discussion will focus on the possibilities hypnosis offers for an intimate dominant/submissive relationship. And, by the bye, might the master use meditative techniques to exercise greater control over their own life, thereby strengthening their role as dominant? Workshop includes printed material regarding hypnosis and dominant/submissive love relationships. Note: If you miss the advance sale deadline for online tickets, please call Sexploratorium 215-923-1398 after 12 noon to register via telephone the day of the workshop (same day tickets cost $10 more).
