Topics

  • Hypnosis files back on Fox this fall.
  • Besides being the Zodiac Killer, Ted Cruz has a tiny penis.
  • NAMBLA Pre-School might be a bad branding idea. Woe to the man who transgenders public restrooms. Because apparently transgender is now a verb!
  • Listen letter: Serophobia and how it can impact an individuals love life. First take away – Polycuels can be complicated. Stigmas around the topic are alive and well in community, despite social niceties. Sero status is an important discussion when it comes to sex and negotiations. Do you have a right to someone’s medical history or Sero status? Is it reasonable to have the expectations of knowing when going into this situation? Discussion is paramount. Keeping on top of sexual health.
  • Is the stigma around HIV status diminishing? More information and better news. Medical advancements have changed how younger generations approach the illness.
  • Roleplay fantasies! Has Daddy done it? Spanky a boy in a baseball dugout. Coach and player, yes! Pup and handler… that’s weird.

Episode 175 – Pup Identity

Douchepickle of the week: AFA – skidmarks, assholes, soccer mom’s – oh my!  Daddy goes a bit dark on the feelings he has about the American Family Association and gender-neutral bathrooms.

Summary and notes of show

Show Notes

In the News

Topics

  • Started with items noticed locally – local groups seem to be made up of a lot of non-traditional puppies – how to make sure they feel welcome and included without compromising anyone’s headspace.
    •  Distracting at moshes and with other puppies headspaces at time.
  • Sparky has never moshed!
  • Daddy is not quite up to date on the topic – but has seen a bit and can totally identify with the headspace concerns.
  • Fursuits at the rubbout party – respect that it’s their thing, but stood out in the environment – was afraid of shedding!
    • Brutus: Traditional ‘RePUPlican’ values but want’s to ensure everyone is included.
    • Ansel: Easy transition for furries to pup headspace – many furry groups are ‘G-rated’ – puppy communities tend to be more allowing of this.
  • Brutus was a furry – was a fox, then a lion, then a dog, now a ‘me’ – but never felt a ‘furry headspace’.  First ‘taste’ of headspace.
  • Daddy wants to know: What is ‘Antelope’ / ‘Reindeer’ / ‘etc’ headspace?  Is it like pup headspace?  How do they see it fitting into the puppy community.
  • If you are not a puppy and not in a puppy headspace – is it appropriate for you to participate in a puppy mosh where the assumption is that this is for ‘pup space’ – vs. something more open?  Is that offensive?
    • All-skate / Public swim
  • Remember: people have made the transition from puppy to furry as well.
  • Daddy: That gives puppies a fun place to go – but where do other animals go?  Do they have a (e.g.)skunk mosh for people to have their own outlet?
  • Label of ‘puppy’ compared to the label ‘leather’ – we are still defining this as a group.
  • What does it mean to be a puppy?
  • How can we make sure that everyone is included and comfortable without offending everyone?
    • Is this possible even?

Episode 160 – Bondage to the Max! Part 2

We had such a great time talking with Max that we had to do a second show! We talked a lot more about kink and BDSM. Now, we are just going to jump right into it without a bunch of show notes for two reasons.

One is that, hey its the second part! Didn’t we already say everything about these episodes in the last post? You are ready, you don’t need these amusing notes to get ready for the show do you?

Second, Sparky is doing the notes this week and he isn’t as good at creating these posts, so it is what it is!

Now on with it!

Audience members: Damien!  Bndgkid!  Brutus and Ansel!

Show Notes

  • How did Max get started

Episode 152 – ToyTorture

In this show we interview ToyTorture, a fun kinkster from Kink Heav– I mean Germany! We talk about his life experience growing up kinky and how he started his toy review website ToyTorture.com. We compare the differences in the various kink-cultures he’s gotten to experience and the expansion of kink culture.

About Our Guest

Growing up in a rural area of the coast of nothern Germany Frederik was kinky dirty boy before he even knew the word “sex”. Once he discovered the internet he was soon all over the (porn) place. Being a shy and introverted yet happy pig who is willing to try everything at least twice he is almost always open for a good discussion about BDSM history and theory, play scenes and snuggles.

To let others participate on his quest of finding the best toys for great scenes and to give something back to the community, he started ToyTorture.com in 2012 a website focusing on reviewing BDSM toys and helping new people into the sometimes overwhelmingly complex world of BDSM. Through his website he got to know our own Drew Lion who he started off on his “real” journey into kink on a trip to San Francisco.

When he is not working (for his website) or is looking for love in all the wrong places he enjoys going to the gym, reading, playing PC and table top RPGs and way too much baking cakes. You can follow his kinky live on Recon, PlanetRomeo, Twitter and of course ToyTorture.com.

Episode 150 – So Fucked Up

In this show we had a few things to catch up on. We wanted to clear the air after last show’s rant on the listener letter. There was an important point that we need to at least empathize with each other and support each other, something one particular listener apparently can’t grasp. We also wanted to share why we didn’t do a show last week. And finally we do a big wrap up of Camp K9 that everyone attended, which is a fun event held by SEA-PAH.

Episode 120 – Playing Without a Playspace

Hey all, for this show we talked about some of the challenges and stories around doing some playing without a playroom. There are those times when you are trying to do some serious BDSM lay in the woods, or in a hotel room, it can always be more challenging than having your own play space made for it. We also talk about the ways in which we had to create playspaces in apartments where noise, cleanliness and not being able to build into the structure all present challenges to work through!

We talk about it in the only way we know, with a bunch of nutty talk!

Episode 98 – Live at SEBB

We were invited by the producers of the Southeast Black and Blue event in Atlanta to come down for a fun live show. Both Daddy Tony and Sparky were asked to do some classes; Daddy Tony did a demo class on flogging and another on building a toy bag on a budget, while Sparky lead a discussion about boy headspace and later a class on CBT (with Mikey  as the stunt bottom).

Then in the afternoon we setup our mobile studio, invited the attendees to join us on the dance floor of the Atlanta for a live recording of the show, which was a great deal of fun! You have to check this out to see about the crazy hijinx we got up to. Also, be sure to check out the pics of the Human Candelabra that Sir Alan did while we are recording the show; we retweeted the pic on our twitter account.

We want to thank the awesome team that put together this event and invited us down: Sir Alan (@IntlLthrSir2011), Pup Nitro (@IntlLthrboy2011), Sir Loki (@Atlloki), boy david, and Dale. You all are awesome!

We made mention of a listener who has a crowd funding for a line of puppy related clothing, called the Dogs BolloXX Fashion Line. Be sure to check out the site at www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-dogs-bolloxx-fashion-line

Community dealing with loss

Below are two announcements of fairly recent losses within our local community. We here at NoSafeWord have struggled with how to properly express ourselves on the show anytime there is a loss of of fellow kinkster.

For the first, Bill Parkin is a member of the community with whom I have met but had little chance to get to know personally. I have, however, seen the impact he has had on the community because of several people who have spoke highly of him. He should be celebrated for his contributions and efforts, that is a given; but more importantly we should celebrate how many lives he managed to touch and help lift up. Good journey Bill.

The second loss, Pup Phoenix, is far more difficult to discuss, especially on a comedy podcast. When the loss is of someone so young, so sudden, so unexpected, it is that much more difficult to feel like we do justice to celebrating who he was and creating a proper memorial. Questions surrounding the manner of how he passed and why jump to the front of our minds, naturally; but necessity of decorum out-weighs the need to know, even when the motivation is to try to find some way to use the tragic death as a way to start a conversation about preventing further losses.

In the end we chose not to tackle the subject on the air… for now. Rather than using specific examples we hope to one day, in the future, to find a way to talk about loss and how we can deal with it, or perhaps prevent further losses when possible.

Until then, we hope everyone will take a moment to remember and wish them well to where ever their next journey takes them.

 

For those of you who have not heard, the Seattle Leather community has recently lost two important titleholders. Bill Parkin, most recently Seattle Leather Granddad 2011, passed away on Friday, 20 June and Pup Phoenix, Seattle Daddy’s Boy 2014, unexpectedly passed away this Monday, 7 July.

Bill “Ma” Parkin was truly one of the founding members of the Northwest Leather Community. For many people, “Bill Parkin’s Home For Wayward Boys” was where they learned and grew into the Leather lifestyle. He would open his house for many, providing them with a safe and stable place to grow personally and professionally. Over the course of decades of involvement with the Seattle Leather community, he helped mentor many of the individuals we now see as leaders. In addition to building the Leather community, he also helped establish the Seattle LGBT bowling leagues that are still popular today. We will remember him for his brilliant blue eyes, sparkling smile and quick wit; we will forgive him for his habit of salting his beer.

Phoenix was an enthusiastic member of and contributor to the Northwest Leather Community. He competed in last year’s Northwest Puppy Contest as well as winning the Seattle Daddy’s Boy 2014 title. As part of his title year activities, he co-hosted the annual Chili Feed, lead the Leather and Kink contingent in this year’s Pride Parade, and most recently, represented SML at TRC’s Black Forest Party. Most of all, we will remember him for his contagious smile, energy and his efforts to include all of his Leather brothers and sisters in the community.

Sunday, there will be a series of events to remember both Bill and Phoenix. People will be gathering from 10AM-1PM at West Seattle Bowl, for a celebratory “Sunday Gay Bowling” to remember Bill. At 2:00PM, there will be a Celebration of Life for both Bill and Phoenix at the Cuff, including memorabilia from both individual’s lives. Please come in gear to honor and remember both Bill’s and Phoenix’s contributions to the Leather Community, as well as bring stories and memories of both of them. Per Bill’s wishes, there will be no speeches or eulogies.

Yours in Leather,

Mark Handel, on behalf of the Seattle Men in Leather Board
