53: Andre Shakti does Nawlins

Play

During Naughty in Nawlins 2017 (one of the largest swingers events, in New Orleans), misses Puppy and Jon ran into our instructor for the "erotic wrestling" class.   She turned out to very cute, great a giving lapdances and an all-round awesome person.  We sat down and chatted about kink, polyamory, bi-sexuality, penis size, wrestling, stripping (including "pole burn") and porn.

Andre Shakti is a journalist, educator, performer, activist, and professional slut living in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is devoted to normalizing alternative desires, de-stigmatizing sex workers and their clients, and not taking herself too seriously. Andre wrestles mediocre white men into submission and writes about sex work, queerness and non-monogamy for Cosmopolitan, Thrillist, MEL, Vice, and more. She can frequently be found marathoning Law & Order: SVU under a chaotic pile of partners and pitbulls, and yes, she knows how problematic that show is. Visit her on Twitter @andreshakti, on FB as “Andre Shakti”, and at AndreShaktiXXX.com (NSFW).

48: Puppies and Massages

Play

Exploring polyamory, BDSM and kink in the swinging lifestyle.

We catch up with Mr. and Misses Puppy (see previous episodes for background).  The first interview is right after a hotel playdate with Mr, Misses Puppy, and L  a.k.a. "Mr. Puppy's new toy".

In second part,  debrief with "Nightowl", the poor massage therapist (and general fun kinky guy) that SinD corrupted.

We go over the difference between the different lifestyles: swinging versus polyamory, BDSM communication styles versus those used in the swinging lifestyle.   Jon explains and demos some of his secret techniques on air on Misses Puppy.

Yes, there was wine consumed during the taping. 🙂

47: Transgender Swinging and Kink

Play

We had an interesting discussion with Lee Harrington, author of an eclectic set of books.  His latest is "Traversing Gender", which provides a "newbies guide to other genders", with many references throughout the world and history.  It also reviews the differences between all the various terms like "transgender", "transsexual", "trans", "intersex" and a multitude of others.

As a transgender person, the realities of "play" in both the swinging or BDSM lifestyles is completely different and very challenging.   Lee explains the differences in treatment of transgender folk throughout the years, and his own transition.

43: Flogging and Lusting in Las Vegas

Play

Our gang hits "Fetish and Fantasy" again in Las Vegas.

There is a lot of  spanking and flogging going on stage, as usual.

This year, we have some extra complications:

  • A gang of "hashers" takes over the hotel and causes havoc while our gang is trying to recover from their own naughty but exhausting activities
  • Mr. Bill brought along a vanilla friend, who has no idea what is going on.  She gets dunked in our pool of debauchery, while we hope she doesn't drown in the craziness.
    Spoiler: She does fine!
    We even interview her before and after her experience, which leads to interesting insight into how outsiders view the world of swinging and BDSM, and how the view changes after exposure.

42: Vintage BDSM

Play

vintage_bdsm

For your listening pleasure, we have a bunch of different subjects.

Jon and SinD head to Los Angeles again to hang out with Mister Bill.   While Jon gets busy with one of his favorite play partners, the rest of the gang  talks about the history of BDSM in L.A. This goes all the way back to the early days of "Society of Janus", "Presidium" and  Treshold, when it was just a couple of kinky people playing around in a rented X-rated movie studio.

We lured the makers of "SportSheets" (we interviewed and tested the product previously) to Dragons gate.

We are taking the violet wand to Burning Man to zap people in the dessert!

There are plenty of other random discussions, gummy bears and reviews of Jon's performance as a swinger.

master of oBill interviews Ernest Greene (and his wife, Nina Hartley) about his newest book, "Master of O" and they trade anecdotes from way back in time (around when they invented rope).

38: Naughty in Nawlins and on boats

Play

We had a long chat with Bob Hannaford (half of the infamous "Bob & Tess" team), famous for creating spectacular events and cruises.

Bob talks about the swinging lifestyle, being naked (pretty much a requirement to survive in New Orleans) and having a great time at a convention. They stared with having 100 couples, now their events welcome more than 800 couples each.  Instead of creating one big event, they create a cluster of smaller activities, so that everybody can find their own thing.

The culture of New Orleans is very open to all walks of life.  Bob has been organizing a parade during Naughty in N’awlins for over 10 years, which has morphed into a "swingers pride parade".  It almost looks like a sexy political rally.

The only people who make less money when the swingers take over the own are the strippers.  But they do have strip-club take-overs, to great effect!
