October was another busy month. I met up with Midori whilst she was visiting London for the Skin Two Rubber Ball weekend.

Dr Meg Barker is a senior lecturer in psychology at a London University and works part time at a Sex and Relationship Clinic. Her research has included the UK's bisexual, polyamorous and SM communities, and she works closely with those groups to gain a close understanding of relationship structures and sexual practices. This month her latest book is published, co-edited with Darren Langdridge, called "Safe, Sane and Consensual: Contemporary Perspectives on Sadomasochism" (it can be ordered from Amazon here). She kindly agreed to be interviewed for this column:
