Ep 15 – Power Exchange and Sacred Sexuality

Power exchange refers to a relationship of mutual consent in which one person gives their submission in exchange for another person giving their dominance. The exchange is the power that is always inherent in dominance & submission where in which the s-type loses some degree of authority to the D-type in exchange for the D-type taking some degree of responsibility for the s-type.
All BDSM interactions between a Dom and sub normally involve some sort of power exchange. The sub consensually gives up some power to the Dom. This is different than the dynamic between a Top and Bottom.
Sacred sexuality is the combining of sexual energy and sexual acts with spirituality. In my research it can be in the form of tantra or within the context of other pagan notions. In Tantric teachings, the word sacred refers to the ‘spirit’ and sexuality refers to the ‘body.’ Sacred sex is the exchange of sexual energy that goes beyond the physical sensations of pleasure and genital orgasms.

Ep 12 – Fisting

Fisting is a sexual activity that involves inserting a hand into the vagina or rectum. Once insertion is complete, the fingers are either clenched into a fist or kept straight. Fisting may be performed without a partner, but it is most often a partnered activity.

Safe fisting requires patience, practice, communication, and, yes, plenty of lube. “No matter your gender or the hole you’re fisting, be sure to go slower than you think you need to, and use more lube than you think you need”

Ep 10 – Lets talk Bondage

Our Guests on the show today are Illiana and Wild Dracos

  • Bondage is the practice of consensually tying, binding, or restraining a partner for erotic, aesthetic, or somatosensory stimulation. Rope, cuffs, bondage tape, self-adhering bandage, or other physical restraints may be used for this purpose.
  • Shibari is a whole entire subject on it’s own.
  • Safety is a huge factor in all forms of bondage. The top must be prepared for emergencies and have a plan to release the bottom quickly.
  • The bottom should prepare themselves both mentally and physically.
  • Historical
    • Bondage is also presented in erotic and mainstream literary forms, including cartoons and magazines, and depicted in erotic art, such as some of the works of Gustave Doré and John Everett Millais. The mythical Andromeda was a popular subject for bondage in art by painters including Rembrandt’s Andromeda Chained to the Rocks (1630), Théodore Chassériau (1840), Edward Poynter (1869) and Gustave Doré (1869).
    • A popular motif in the days of silent film and into the 1930’s were “damsels in distress” with the actress often bound on railroad tracks or in other forms.
    • Depictions of bondage in art may be erotic, in which case they follow a heteronormative model and tend to depict a young woman in danger and fear. Bizarre was a fetish and bondage magazine published between 1946–1959 by bondage artist John Willie. It included drawings and photographs using professional bondage models in bondage or sadomasochistic scenes. Sweet Gwendoline was the main female character in his works, published largely in the 1950s and 60’s, and possibly the most famous bondage icon after Bettie Page.
    • Bondage in mainstream media became more and more normalized (if depicted on the lighter bondage side).
    • By the 1990s, references to bondage could be found in mainstream prime-time television series such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, where equipment such as handcuffs or collars and concepts such as the safeword were included as a matter of course

Ep 9 – Discussing Public and Private Play

Discussing Public and Private Play:

  • Often paperwork required such as a release for the facility
  • Some venues require vetting
  • They help dispel the myth that kink is for the wealthy (Christian Grey Syndrome)
  • Meeting a diversity of people and their play styles
  • Can often be a learning environment
  • Dungeon Masters (DM)

It is important to know the rules of the venue!!

Don’t take pictures of anyone or anything without permission (again, most play parties and nearly all public dungeons ban any kind of photography). Don’t violate other people’s privacy.

“People who are outed risk losing their professional and social status; access to their children; and, in extreme cases, going to prison for having engaged in consensual adult activities in private. This raises significant civil liberties issues regarding the right to a private life, as guaranteed by law,” says Myles Jackman, an incisive, eloquent barrister who frequently advises Backlash, a campaigning group which fights for the right to freedom of sexual expression.
