What you are going to learn
Reparations as a form of healing.
Velvets practice became renowned for owning and enslaving white cisgender straight men, making them read a lot of black feminist theory. But it didn't start out that way....
"And I think that comes through emotional healing, intellectual healing, and, and that comes through pleasure. And so when I say healing, I mean, I get these moments where I go into the dungeon, and I get to be this archetype of a woman and of a black person where I'm in power, I'm being paid--literally, I'm also having someone submit to me"
