VMAP – Needs in Power Exchange Pt 2

In this episode, we tackle more provocative questions.

Is there a basic Image Capture from Episode - shows title.need that drives us to cheating?
How does resentment undermine relationships?
What about “needs” like being hurt or humiliated?

The second of two parts, we continue to explore how needs; not collars, cuffs, slave positions, or chains; are focal to Power Exchange relationships.


VMAP is an educational project of Modern Power Exchange which focuses on a healthy, consensual, scientific, sex-positive approach to Power Exchange in human relationships.

Not a course on BDSM or sex, VMAP is focused on people who may have seen Fifty Shades of Grey or other media, but don’t know how to bridge the gap between fiction and a real lifestyle, as well as those who already practice Power Exchange and want help making it work better.
