Episode 213 – Savage on Consent

Description of Show

Dan Savage returns to the podcast as a guest, and we talk about consent.

 Show Notes

  • What Now? Dan presents it this week, and mentions three organizations that really could use our donations: ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the International Refugee Assistance Project.
  • In the News: Sadly, stealthing is the newest, dangerous sex trend…for straight people.
  • We receive a letter asking for advice from Dan about a violation of consent from a prominent member of their local kink community.
  • The discussion moves into consent in general.
    • Having “the talk” before going in. A too-long talk can make the scene less passionate.
    • How you give “the talk.” It can be given in a reassuring, positive, and inclusive way.
    • Practice makes perfect…with the same person. You will read each other more readily without having to vocalize things, and trust between the two grows with each new experience with each other.
    • Consent given during a sexual experience that was previously out-of-bounds…not to be taken lightly.
    • Straight folks new to kink may be at a slight disadvantage compared to the gay male community…since gay men tend to first ask “what are you into?” since there is not one activity assumed to be part of gay sex.
    • Sometimes, consent given even well-before a scene could still be a negative time, but the consolation prize is that the person who gave the consent learned what they did not like.
    • Finally, if you are on the extreme side of kink activities, maybe an e-mail or text exchange stating what is consented to is a good idea.

Episode 196 – Savage Rebroadcast

Hey all, this is actually a rebroadcast of the first episode we had with Dan Savage. You see recently both Daddy Tony & Sparky work on the Savage Lovecast to help answer some kink related questions! You can find that episode at: http://www.savagelovecast.com/episodes/527

We thought we would repost the episode when he was one with us way back when and hope you don’t notice the difference in the audio quality (I still hate those old mics, grrrrr).

And we will be back soon with some great episode!


 

When we asked Dan Savage  to join us on the show, we were floored when he said yes! He joined us for our regular Friday night recording to do a 2 hour show. We talked to him about how he first got started with his column as well as his new book! (Find Dan’s Book, American Savage, on Amazon)

His book talks about Faith, Sex, Love and Politics, so we came up questions about each one of those topics to pose to Dan. And in Part 2 we will have some questions from listeners who wanted to ask Dan some advice questions. We also get a chance to talk to him about the It Gets Better Project.

We also mention on the show Tynan Fox’s current effort to open an inclusive coffee shop using a kickstarter, you can find out more about it at: http://www.tynanfox.com/2013/08/-latte.html.

Episode 167 – Dan Savage Part 2

In our last episode, Dan Savage joined us for a hilarious discussion. We had so much fun talking with him that we talked and talked and talked. So we split it up into two episodes. (We really try not to tax your endurance too much. We realize that we’re good in small doses.)

Headphones and potty breaks. That’s what we devolve into. So enjoy the rest of our conversation with Dan!

Episode 166 – Dan Savage Part 1

Our resident sex advice podcaster and columnist and fellow kinkster Dan Savage returns to share his insight and funny thoughts on a variety of topics. He even answers some of the letters our listeners sent to the crew, all from the top of his head. He has a hard time concentrating when handed the controls of a dick stroking machine running on a sexy naked boy tied up on the bondage table while we recorded, too. Lots of laughs and advice in this one!
