Hermione Danger Recommends is a new series where I recommend a piece of media – TV show, book, podcast, etc – that centers on sex, feminism, and/or social justice issues.
When I started planning this blog series, I began making a list of media I wanted to discuss. Soon, I had enough material for a year’s worth of monthly posts, and the ideas kept on coming. However, it was never a question which one would be my first-ever recommendation; it was always going to be The Dildorks.
Trigger warning: this post includes discussion and depiction of rape.
As you probably know, I recently attended Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit – usually referred to as Woodhull or SFS, for short – and overall, it was a phenomenal experience. Exhausting and overwhelming, yes, but wonderful. On the plane journey home, I began mentally composing a blog post about my time there and quickly realized I had more to say than I first thought. So I plan to do a mini-series of sorts, and while I originally intended to begin with a general recap, the recent events in Charlottesville have necessitated a change in plans.
Recently, I spent a lovely evening with three of my friends: a couple with whom I am very close, and another of our mutual friends. We drank, ate burgers from the grill, sweltered in the Midwestern summer heat, and chatted about various things, including politics and some drama that’s been happening in our friend group.
Oh, and for about an hour, I was being tied up in the living room.
Greetings friends. For those of you who are new, welcome. For those returning to my world, welcome back.
I used to blog occasionally under my former online persona, and I’ve been feeling the writing itch again. With #SFS17 so near, I decided this was the perfect time to jump back into the blogging world.
So, who is Hermione Danger?
- Feminist librarian with a dog and a lot of Feelings about Harry Potter and The Simpsons
- Collared submissive, rope bunny, and mild masochist
- Anxious introvert committed to social justice
…among other things.
And now, if you’ll allow me to quote Dumbledore, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
