via press release:
ALL-NEW SEASON OF “OUR AMERICA WITH LISA LING” RETURNS WITH RIVETING NEW STORIES
TUESDAY, JANUARY 22 AT 10 PM ET/PT
Continuing its exploration of life in the United States, “Our America with Lisa Ling” returns to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Tuesday, January 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. In the season premiere titled “Shades of Kink,” host Lisa Ling goes beyond the best-selling fictional book Fifty Shades ofto explore the very real world of BDSM (bondage/discipline, dominance/submission and sadomasochism).
As Ling attends a “Kink 101” class, meets a dominatrix and her client and others around the country who are part of the BDSM community, Ling quickly realizes that the subculture is more vast and complicated than any romance novel could ever convey. To the uninitiated, BDSM can seem dark, scary and even dangerous, but to others it is a pleasurable and mutually-agreeable form of fantasy play.
