背景與目的 Background and objectives

BDSM 或禁羈 (kink) 泛指佔據一個廣泛光譜的非典型性實踐,其共同特徵為將一般情境下被認為負面或無性的情緒、情境、感官感受、或對象予以情慾化,轉化為可享受的體驗。在歐美,以禁羈作為主題或素材的學術研究在近數十年有可觀的成長。近年來,亞洲禁羈社群已有長足發展,禁羈相關符碼時常進入大眾視野,也衍生出種種值得討論、分析的議題。在此趨勢之下,建立一個讓有意進行禁羈相關研究的學者可彼此交流的平台也逐漸有其必要性。

BDSM, or kink, comprises a broad spectrum of atypical practices in which emotions, situations, sensations, or objects usually considered negative or asexual are eroticized and turned into enjoyable experiences. Western academic research of kink has grown considerably in recent decades. Meanwhile, the substantial development of Asian kink communities in recent years has brought kink-related symbols frequently into public view and raised various issues worthy of discussion and analysis. This trend necessitates a platform of exchange for kink-related researchers.


The Asian-Pacific-Islander Symposium on Kink (ASK) is an academic conference situated in Asia. It aims to support kink-related researchers to connect, discuss, and interact with each other, enhancing the depth and diversity of kink as a topic of academic study; bridge local kink communities with academia, facilitating their mutually beneficial cooperation; assemble local kink practitioners, critiquing communal evolution and surrounding trends in thought and dialogue, tethering communal developments to social events.
