H3rself is a career academic scientist from multiple disciplines. In addition to probing the deepest natures of reality with her science work, she's spent many years exploring and documenting the psychology of transitioning genders and journeying through the worlds of kink.
After many years of teaching what she's learned from these worlds in smaller settings, it’s clear that this knowledge isn’t limited to being beneficial in their respective niches but play fundamental parts in human nature. Unfortunately, or fortunately, science hasn’t had the proper ability or resources to explore these realms, so most of these lessons aren’t nicely outlined in textbooks as she’d like.
As a kinkster, H3rself enjoys heavy SM play, playful DS, and exploring just deep this dark rabbit hole goes.
