Gloria Brame (born August 20, 1955) is an American board certified sexologist, writer[1] and sex therapist[2] based in Athens, Georgia. She is a member of the American College of Sexologists,[3] and clinical sexologist. Her sex therapy practice specializes in consensual BDSM,[4] sexual fetishism and sexual dysfunction.[5]

Dr. Brame is also an author, educator, and advocate for safe, sane, and consensual relating, especially among the BDSM, fetish, and LGBTQ communities.[6]

Education[edit]

Dr. Brame earned her Ph.D. degree in Human Sexuality from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in 2000[7] and an M.A. in English literature from Columbia University in 1978.[8]

Dr. Brame wrote several books including:

  • Different Loving: the World of Sexual Dominance and Submission
  • Come Hither: A Commonsense Guide To Kinky Sex

Different Loving, published in 1993, was an evidence based re-evaluation of SM/fetish/kink as an expression of normal minds and lives, challenging the bias against safe, sane, and consensual behavior as somehow pathological or problematic.[according to whom?]

Come Hither was selected as the "official guide to kinky sex" by the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.[9]

Other titles by Brame include: Sex for Grown-Ups, Where the Boys Are, The Truth About Sex (Vols. I and II), and Different Loving Too.[10]

Brame testified against then-US Attorney General in Nitke vs Ashcroft, a major case challenging the Communications Decency Act before the Southern District of New York.[11][12]

In 2012 Brame joined the board of directors of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance[13] and co-hosted a web radio talk show on Spreaker.[14]

Brame has been cited as a fetish sex expert in a number of media articles,[15][16][17][18][19] and has been a regular contributor to Cosmopolitan, Working Woman, and other mainstream magazines. Her biography of the Marquis de Sade appears in the International Encyclopedia of Human Sexuality (2015).[20]
