XMas Special Crossover Episode

kinky_christmasWe have a surprise special XMas  episode (Just like "Dr. Who!"), as guests on "The Hidden Swing" podcast, where we go over BDSM basics and give a bunch of tips and tricks to improve Jim and Jen (and your) next time at the dungeon.  We touch upon etiquette, protocol, toys and how to find munches.  They decide that the first thing to get is a "neon wand".

Listen to us over at "The Hidden Swing".

35: Fetish & Fantasy 2: Journey to the Dark Side

Play
FF2014-1 Just like last year, we hit Vegas like rockstars 🙂  First there were a bunch of spectacular swinger parties, then  we spent the night on stage flogging and spanking the most
We welcome our newest member “Victoria Secret” from across the pond, who we just lured to the dark side. There was flogging of a moose, which may or may not have been president Obama.
Like any good sports team, we had a dedicated massage therapist Bob.  He works for “No shame massage” in the LA area.   To top off all the kinky stuff, we went to see “Wicked” the musical.
Did I mention there was lots of spanking of sexy people, and various swingers parties?  Reverent Jon managed to get into trouble by having sex in the BDSM room (again!).  He tried to compensate by having being kinky in the sex room.  Let's hope the organizers agree that it cancels each-other out.
Pictures from the event can be found in our Kasidie community albums.

Miss Victoria goes to Las Vegas

Hello, how do you do? My name is Victoria S. I live in London, England. I used to know very little about ‘alternative lifestyles’, beyond a couple of sex and fetish parties I might have gone to just to stare. And reading Fifty Shades. Yes, I confess, I read it. In my defense, I thought it was rubbish.

Fetish & Fantasy Ball 2014My curiosity built over a couple of years back home, but I didn’t really get a chance to engage more proactively until this year. You know how it starts: a bit of vanilla spanking, you like how it feels… You buy some kinky boots because they make you feel sexy, you find a party to go to where you can wear them… And before you know it, you’re flogging behinds at the annual Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball in Las Vegas!

It all started in earnest at Burning Man this year. I went there with Mister Bill, whom I had met there last year, and a bunch of his friends from Dragon’s Gate. That’s how I had the pleasure of meeting the full cast from Bliss Bringers: Mistress SinD, Reverend Jon, Professor Tea and The Captain.

34: Kink.com, Folsom Street Faire, adopting a pet

Play

upper floor SlaveAnother  "recap episode", where SinD and Jon try to remember all the adventures since last time!  First up is BondCon, a new conference at "The Armory", home of "Kink.com".  We meet various famous educators, but the misses was most impressed with "Thraje" and Cléo Dubois, and the single-tail whipping skills of "Disciple".

We visit Folsom Street Faire and interview random victims (to great amusement).  It turns out that bi-males do exist!

Misses also adopted a (human submissive) pet, and took her to a swingers party.  This put a spotlight on the differences between protocols and appropriate behavior between the swinger and BDSM/kink communities.    In the later, there is a more strict enforcement of the "ask for consent first" rule, which sometimes gets forgotten by the experienced swingers.  Also,  one has to make sure that one scene does not take so long that one doesn't get laid.  "Cock-blocking" may have occurred, and  Jon got the woman with "worlds most impressive ass" in trouble.

We use Google Calendar to schedule play-dates/training sessions.  Does that mean we are now poly?

Featured podcast: The Swing Wife (Podfaded)

 

32: Swinging in the Dust: Burning man

Play

Burning ManThe "Bliss Bus" settles on the playa at Burning Man, and we record our experiences: Dust, danger ("safety third!") at the "thunder dome", fun at the orgy dome, standing in line in the rain.

But first: Reverent Jon takes "playa confessions" and a BDSM 101 course on the desert with plenty of volunteers, which we interview and spank (not always in that order).

50 shades again...

Fiftyshades

 

Yes, we know that the trailer to "Fifty shades of grey" is released.

Just like when the books series was at peak hype, we get asked a lot for opinions on this, so here's a handy reference list.

  • What do you think about the movie?
    It will probably suck mildly, yet make millions.
  • What did you think about the books?
    They are mediocre porn, with bad story-telling.
  • What about the BDSM in the books?
    It was written by somebody who's entire experience seems to consist of a few hours on Google.  Some of the items really exist, but are put way out of context or use in an unrealistic fashion.
  • How do you feel about this release?

Answer:

Love it.

The practicality of the BDSM in it is bollocks.  People who use them as a handbook for "the BDSM lifestyle" are going to have a bad time, but so do people who use porn as sex-ed.   It's sensationalized, exaggerated and shoe-horned into a story line.

But that doesn't really matter.

The important part is:  This book series and movie (series?) makes BDSM and kink approachable as  it gets dragged into central stage for a while.  This will do something that the sex-positive community can't dream to accomplish: Expose millions to the fact that "alternative lifestyles" do exists and are worth exploring.

I can tolerate the companies wanting to make a quick buck by selling "50 shades" branded merchandise.  Once it breaks, we can direct the people to  the Stockroom to buy real gear.  A bunch of people will be curious about all this, and Google may drive some of them into our community.  Yes, most of them will be too scared to attend a "munch" (a "meet&greet"), but they may read a book or listen to a podcast...  and a percentage of those will make the jump.

We will be there with open arms, flogger in hand.

Oh, it also gets us laid more. 🙂
