What does a bareknuckle boxer, porn star, BDSM dominatrix, ballet dancer, ultra runner, wrestler, flesh-hook suspension artist and MMA fighter have in common?
Push themselves to extremes. If you've dipped your toes (and by that I mean fully immersed yourself) in any of the above, you're likely going to relate to this episode.
Jenny Valentish writes for The Guardian, the ABC, The Age and The Monthly. Her third book, Woman of Substances, was a memoir-research hybrid that wound up on university reading lists and became a bible for therapists and ailing hedonists alike. Her latest book, Everything Harder Than Everyone Else interrogates people who push themselves to extremes to mine their hard-won wisdom.
