Fifty Shades of Care: Why Doctors Need to Pay More Attention to their Kinky Patients
On Valentine’s Day weekend last year I found myself at Paddles, the local dungeon in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, for the first time. I was perched at the alcohol-free bar when a man politely introduced himself as a human carpet. He asked that I tread on him and lay on the floor to demonstrate. A professional dominatrix-in-training stepped onto his chest and buried her stilettos deep into his belly. His eyes were closed, and he looked calm -- blissful, really. As a medical student, I winced, imagining the arrangement of his delicate organs in relation to her vicious heels.
