About Our Guest

Collie is the proud, and the first ever, holder of the title of Mr. Rubber Ireland. He is from Northern Ireland and has been involved in the rubber and kink scene for just over two years now and is loving every minute of it.

During his journey in the kink world, he has discovered that he is a pup and is well known as Pup Link. He shares his life with his pup partner, Felan, and has traveled to Dublin, London, and Berlin to discover more about himself and of the kink world. Collie takes pride in exploring his pup side as well his other kink interests like rubber, bondage, BDSM, and leather, to name but a few.

Collie is a dedicated volunteer with Geared Ireland, a non profit organization that holds a monthly fetish dress code night in Dublin, where gay men can meet up and socialize with each other in their favorite pieces of gear in a safe and friendly environment. On his travels about Europe, he tries to spread the word about Geared Ireland and the fetish scene within Ireland. He does what he can to promote the Irish fetish scene as well as Geared Ireland and all the hard work that the organizers and  the wonderful volunteers do.

As he considers himself fairly new to the scene, he makes a point to try and welcome any newcomers and to make sure that he pays forward the warm welcome that he received. Collie is not afraid to pass on any knowledge he has gained or to loan gear for others to try as we all have to start somewhere. He is a firm believer that every newcomer should be welcomed and aided to ensure that they have the best experience and join the fetish community. Only by welcoming new blood into the community, can the community grow, strengthen, and survive!

You can find him on Twitter as @omegapuplink and on Facebook as MrRubberIreland.

Episode 135 – Staying Alive

Sadly many of us in the gay community have been affected by someone who has taken his or her own life. The crew of the NoSafeWord Show has known several people during the past couple of years. Rattnip shares with us his brush with suicide and discusses with us what it felt like for him. We also talk a bit about how to recognize the signs in our friends.

If you are feeling like things are hopeless and there is no other way out, please call one of these organizations before you do anything else:

About Our Guest

Rattnip moved to Seattle in July 2014. A New England native, he escaped from the clutches of banking to pursue a career for a large company you are familiar with but will remain nameless. The rat bartended for three years in Boston while putting himself through school and eventually earning his MBA. Now in semi-bartending retirement he is a member of SEA-PAH, a leather and rubber enthusiast, and one of those furry people you’ve heard so much about.

Episode 132 – Informed Decisions

One’s HIV status is intensely personal. It should be disclosed and discussed whenever negotiating any kind of sexual activity with another person. Generally, we don’t talk about it because of the historically negative reactions from society and many within the gay and kink communities. But are there situations when we should disclose someone else’s HIV status? As you can expect, this is a very gray area for some situations. We have a sometimes difficult discussion on this subject during this week’s episode. And we encourage you to send us your thoughts.

Episode 130 – Beyond Consent

In this episode, we tackle a very serious topic.  Domestic violence and abuse are not easy subjects.  In vanilla relationships, they are difficult to recognize when they are happening to you. It’s even harder when done in the context of power exchange, dom/sub, or BDSM.

Pup Nitro joins us to talk about this sensitive and very important topic.

If you are or think you might be in an abusive relationship, please seek help from trusted friends, family, or professionals. The National Domestic Violence Hotline is available to help or point you in the right direction.

About our Guest

Reid has been involved in rubber and kink for 16 years. He moved to Vancouver from Calgary in 2009 while he still held the Mr. Rubber Calgary title, and instantly became involved in the rubber and leather community in Vancouver, continuing the work he started in Calgary. He has been organizing Rubbout since the 20th anniversary in 2010 when Mitch Kenyon passed the torch to Doug, Rob, and Reid. He became Mr. West Coast Rubber in 2010 and ran for Mister International Rubber in the same year. In his 4th year organizing Rubbout, Reid has found a growing and integrated local community of gay perverts — in rubber, leather, puppy, and other forms — that are supportive of a growing interest in gear and events and groups that bring these communities together. Never shy to share his knowledge and gear, he has found a varied group of young men craving experience in bondage, kink and fetish.

Episode 128 – A Night At the Museum

There is a rich history in the leather community. Most of it is passed on between generations through folklore. Unfortunately, we have a bit of a generational gap in the gay community. One of our greatest resources is the Leather Archives & Museum. The folks there collect things from around the world that have been created and used in the leather and kink histories.  Rick Storer, the LA&M’s Executive Director, and Jakob VanLammeren, the Archivist and Librarian, join us during this episode to tell us all about the Leather Archive & Museum. Listen in and learn something new about our history and the people who work to preserve it.

Episode 126 – Kinky Discordant

Many of us are fortunate to be in relationships with other kinky guys. Some of us aren’t for a variety of reasons — we discovered our kinky interests while already in a relationship or simply because we sometimes can’t control whom we fall in love with. So how do we handle our sex lives when we as kinky guys are madly in love with guys who are totally vanilla?

We received a letter from one of our faithful listeners who describes one such situation. So we talk through many of the issues surrounding a “kinky discordant” relationship, including several options that may be available.
