Episode 57 – Leland

This is the week of hearing from the female kinkster perspective, and this week we have Leland, who is the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Leatherati and we discuss with her the many other ways she supports the kink/leather community.

We wanted to talk to her because she is so close to the kink community and this was a great way to hear a female point of view. We think that our sisters can give us value lessons on how to approach kink, both in the ways that we are similar and the ways that we are unique.

This ended up being a great conversation and had a lot of fun

Episode 56 – It’s a Pug

Puppy play is all the rage nowadays, with all the boys flocking to get their mitts on the latest hoods and tails. With all the fury of all that is going on, sometimes we forget that some of our kink sisters are puppies as well.

When I think of female pups, I always think of Pug. I have known her for years, having been introduced by some mutual friends. If you know her, you know Pug is someone that takes care of her friends and fellow pups, and just a delightful personal all around.

We thought that it would be a great way to bring up the topic of female pups by inviting her on the show and talking about who she is, where she comes from and where her kinks come from.

It was a great discussion and I am so glad she joined us on the show!

Episode 55 – Loki on the Law

While most of the time BDSM play is all find and safe, there are some pitfalls you can run into with the law from time to time. To help prevent those times, or to help protect yourself in case they do, we decided to do a show all about the law. We asked on our friend Loki, who is an attorney and has done workshops on these very issues at kink related events in the past.

We cover a wide variety of topics, all the way from consent and domestic violence, to kidnapping scenes and copyright of your personal porn images. It ended up being a very interesting discussion (that was also enhanced by Drewlion tied to the table in the background with a Venus 2000 milker hooked on).

Episode 54 – Metalbond

For this show we have on Metal from the www.metalbondnyc.com blog! For those that follow all the kink blogs out there, this is a primary site you should be following. The site is full of pics and stories that you are going to love.

We got to know Metal himself and more about his kinks, and why it is that he does the blog. He put together some words about himself so you can get to know him better:

As they may have mentioned, I met Daddy Tony and Mikey when I visited the Serious Male Bondage Institute in SF a few years back.

My primary sexual interest is in inescapable bondage, especially locking metal. I’ve spent many happy, long weekends locked up (out-of-town) in jail cells, straitjackets, sleepsacks and rubber gear. I also host others for play in my tiny walkup apartment in Manhattan. I have drawers, closets and shelves full of leather restraints, ropes, handcuffs, shackles, chains and padlocks — and I even have a steel puppy cage under my loft bed.

I have been wired this way for as long as I can remember. Sexually, I am way more interested in bondage with a guy than in fucking. Always have been and probably always will be. I played tie-up games with neighborhood friends as a kid back in Michigan. The first time I ever ejaculated was after I had restrained myself in my bedroom with belts and realized I could not get out. I sent away for my first pair of handcuffs through a mail order catalog and later kept them hidden in my dorm room at college. Now I have more handcuffs than I know what to do with.

One of the first things I did when I moved to New York City in 1992 was go to the New York Bondage Club, where I was tied up by Bob Wingate and James Bond on my first night there. Later I joined GMSMA (Gay Male SM Activists), a NYC-based organization dedicated to promoting safe, sane and consensual sm. I was editor of NewsLink, the GMSMA newsletter, for six years and served on its board of directors. (GMSMA closed down in 2009.)

Also as part of my “kink resume,” I competed as a bootblack at IML, way back in 1998 and 1999, and was first runner-up both years.

I started up the Metalbond website about five years ago. The reason? I realized I had so many pictures and stories on my hard drive, that I felt it would be a shame not to share it with others. So I set up the site, and vowed to keep updating it regularly. At least once a day, sometimes two or three times a day.

Shorts 04 – Poppers

A listener sent in a question that we decided to address in this Shorts episode. Here is what they sent:

I actually have a questions about the episode (referring to Episode 51 – Covering Recovery). Where do poppers fall into the discussion of drugs during play (in your opinion)?

So, we take this on with the research that we were able to find to discuss the use of poppers. It ended up being a great discussion that we tackle this topic from several different angles.

Enjoy!

Episode 53 – Turning 50 is a Drag

It is Daddy Tony’s Birthday! And he’s 50! He can kick! And Stretch! And KICK!

We decided one fun way we could celebrate his birthday was to have party for the show recording, so we invited a bunch of our friends and turn it into a fun night! Thank you to everyone that joined.

The other way we decided to bring over a friend of the show, Seattle’s own Mama Tits. Two of the most visible and organized sub-groups of the gay community are the leather/kink crowd and the drag queens. Yet there are times when the line between these two is very clearly drawn, even though we all are working towards the same time goal! So we decided to take some time to talk with Mama Tits to talk about the relationship between our two communities.

Even if you are not into drag or drag queens yourself, this is a chance to learn more about our sisters and where they are coming from.

This was a wild one and we hope you enjoy!

Episode 52 – DoubleTop

For this episode, we are joined in studio by one half of the DoubleTop team, Tony! He and his partner (DT Bri) are listeners of the show. He was coming to town for a few days and asked to be in the audience. We said, BE ON THE SHOW!, and he was gracious enough to step up to be interviewed.

We spend a lot of time talking with Tony about their relationship and what it is like to have an open, kinky relationship. We also spend a lot of time talking about the differences between the UK and the US.

We had a great time getting to know him and are looking forward to meeting Bri soon, too!

Episode 51 – Covering Recovery

Boy Josh is new to Seattle and has been on the road to recovery from past drug addictions that was a big part of his life as a part of early kink experiences. He is now on the road of recovery and was willing to share his story.

Drugs are a part of American life in general, and all of us have had to deal with drugs as a part of our kink life. Be it trying ourselves or knowing others who use or have used. And we all have different levels of what is acceptable and not when it comes to drugs being a part of play.

So having a honest, open communication about how drugs affected one person, in this case with Boy Josh, we get to explore what the impact of drugs can be to us all.

We thank Josh for talking with us about his very personal journey!

Episode 50 – Boys Night!

We are already to Episode 50! That is a milestone, and we are so thankful to have all of you in our audience listening the show to keep us going forward.

We thought we might do something a little different and let the boys take over for the evening. Nightcat and bndgkid were given the reigns of the show and have Daddy Tony and Sparky as the guests to talk about the show and a little bit about what we do on the show and where we are going with the show.

It was a very different kind of show and we hope you enjoy it!

Episode 49 – Drewlion

A friend of the show was coming to town for some interviews as he is interested in moving to the Pacific Northwest, so we decided to spend some time getting to know him.

Drewlion is coming at his kinks from a variety of places; furry, boy, puppy, switch. It is always fascinating to hear how each person learns and grows in how they approach their sexuality. And that is exactly why we like to talk to people like Drew. He has a boyfriend, and a Sir and an Alpha, and we talk about how he approaches this relationship. We also spend some time talking about his family situation.

Hope you enjoy getting to know him as much as we did!
