Episode 20 – Stomper

Sparky has known Stomper for a very long time, and there has been some sort of connection between the two. The connection has come in many forms, so we explore where it started, where it went, and the surprising turn it took lately. You want a show with everything, this is it.

Religion. Sex. Rubber. Bondage. Puppies. Furries. ABDL. Daddies.

We have a great time exploring this story, and hope you enjoy it as well! While you are at it, be sure to check out PupZone.com as resource and social gathering place for puppies of all types. And check out the great rubber profiles, pics and videos at Rubberzone.com! Also during the show we make reference to a previous post on the NoSafeWord blog regarding using a sock for putting j-lube on latex, so go check that out HERE.

Episode 19 – Pup Topher

For this one, we talk with a long time friend of ours, Pup Topher, who we have referred to on the show as Pup Chris. He is the puppy to Daddy Chuck, who introduced Damien and Sparky to him.

He has had quite the journey for coming out and discovering kink, as well as just trying to learn how to communicate while in a relationship. He lived all over, had a variety of jobs and not so great relationships, so we get down and dirty into find all about it. It is an interesting story.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

About Our Guestpup topher close up

Pup Topher, otherwise known as Puppy Chris, grew up in a ‘red state’ and took a different path to self actualization. After a slow start and coming out later than most people do today, he ended up booking strippers, tending in a gay bar and being a kept boy. Throughout that he learned a couple of lessons about communication, relationships and making sure you can stand on your own. And while he’s always enjoyed being a sub, he’s also learned that it doesn’t mean being a victim.

Episode 18 – Daddy Jeff, Part 2

For part 2 of this interview we delve into more about the history of creating the local leather group here in Seattle, which I think can be helpful for anyone creating a leather group out there. We also talk about community building and volunteering, what it is like for newbies getting started, and passing down of leathers.

We were very excited to have Daddy Jeff on and very much enjoyed getting to know him a bit more! Hope you do as well!

Episode 17 – Daddy Jeff, Part 1

We have been looking forward to this interview for sometime, and so glad we were able to get Daddy Jeff to come join us!

Daddy Jeff has been in the leather BDSM community for years, having started Seattle Men in Leather 25 years ago, and been a part of the kink history in the Pacific Northwest. We spend some time learning about Jeff’s personal history and his partner “Puppy”. We talk about community and community building, and the leather bar culture from his perspective.

Now, NoSafeWord is not just a Seattle show, we are talking to people from all over the world, but at the same time we wanted to honor Jeff’s recent retirement from Head of Security at the Cuff. But even more so, we think that there is an interesting comparison that can be made between what it is like now for kinksters in the community and what it was like back when some of these communities are just getting started.

So sit back and enjoy, we get into a lot! And join us in a few days for the second part of this great interview!

Be sure to read the great article about Jeff written by Tyesha Best on Leatherati.

Episode 16 – Furries!

When we were recording Episode 15, we had in the audience a couple of our furry friends, Nightcat and Argi, who both agreed to talk to us about what it is like to be furries.

Now in this episode, there are times when we asked questions that may sound like we were coming at an angle that some furries may not like, and I get that. What we were hoping to do was to get down to some of the feelings that keep some in the kink world from making judgments of our furry brothers, or vice versa. Sometimes it is good to ask the tough questions, and I think that there will be more of them in future episodes.

At the same time, it is our usual format of cray cray fun for most of it, so sit back and enjoy!

We got to spend some time to talk with one of the pups that we all here at NoSafeWord have had the chance to get to know over the years, Pup Snuggles. Not only is he a very cute puppy, he is also one of those people that reaches out to many people across the kink world to try to help in any way he can, either through the organizations he is a part of or one person at a time.

We spend some time getting to know Snuggles and where came from, as well as have a great conversation about what his kink family dynamic is like. We were looking forward to having him on and hope you enjoy learning about him as much as we did!

Episode 13 – Last Few Inches with Hypnosis

After the end of the last episode with Neil, we had put out to our listeners the opportunity to ask Neil some questions about hypnosis, and we received several really great questions. So, we scheduled this show as the follow up to go a little deeper into the subject.

We hope you enjoy this episode, it was another fun discussion!

Listener Questions

  • KinkZombie – Hello my rubber and leather bound cock floggers, Could Mr.Hypno give some resources for getting started with hypno? I have seen sites like WarpMyMind but the whole thing has an insider baseball feel. Any books, websites or anything else would be appreciated. (Neil refers to a book by  C. Roy Hunter – The Art of Hypnosis)
  • Cubskin – Hey Guys. Loving the new format podcast… Still got a couple to catch up with but had skipped ahead to ep6 with Neil and the hypno discussion as I had a meet arranged this week with a top also very much into this area. The Top has plenty of experience but unfortunately he was unable to get me to go under properly in our first play and we are going to try again but I guess my question for Neil is this something he comes across frequently and does he have any tips for me to help me relax and get into the right frame of mind? Working in IT I have quite an active/analytical mind which I guess doesn’t help… Don’t think I’m gonna be picked by any stage hypnotizes anytime soon lol
  • Dan – I was hoping you could ask Neil about what goes on during a paid erotic session. I’m a straight man with a hypno fetish who is very interested in an experience similar to what was described in this article: http://www.vice.com/read/erotic-hypnosis-gave-me-the-most-intense-orgasm-of-my-life . I have also wanted to know what it feels like to be a woman, is that possible with hypnosis?
  • Jpup1 aka Jordan – Hey guys, Here are a few questions about hypno for some more info
    • 1. Is there any way to leave hypnotic suggestions in place for longer periods of time than just a single session? For example cues and behaviors that help someone get into pup space easier or something?
    • 2. What are your thoughts about self hypnosis tracks like those offered on warpmymind.com
    • 3. Is there any way to combine erotic hypno and self improvement hypno at the same time?
    • 4. Are there any downsides to doing hypnosis? Other than malicious persons who would take advantage of you while you were in the trance
    • 5. Can you use hypnosis to help enforce chastity for a sub without a physical device?
  • Nightcat – Hello. I figured I would email you both my questions. So a little back ground: I’ve always been a little skeptical about hypnotism and whether it can really work or not. But I’ve always found the idea of it very hot. Now, after hearing the podcast, I really want to try it.
    • So, about 4 years ago my mom was diagnosed with emphysema. She tried everything in the book to quit smoking. As a last resort she tried hypnosis. Her first session she went into a deep sleep rather quickly. The hypnotist said my mom was super easy to get to go under. The hypnosis worked after a few sessions and she no longer smokes or has any desire to.
    • So my question: Is how your mind works hereditary. You see over and over again children picking up personality traits from their parents. Is it possible that because my mom went into the trance so easily that I could as well?
    • My next question is: There is a local group of Furs in the Seattle area that dabble in hypnosis. Nothing professional. I’m curious about going to them to get some experience. Neil touched a little bit on it and said it was fairly safe. I want to make sure that there is nothing that could accidentally go wrong with someone who doesn’t really know what they are doing. I’m a big fan about playing safe in all things that I do.

About Our Guest

Neil has been doing hypnosis since 2001, at first as a hobby (and tool of sexual exploration) and since 2009, as a full-time job. Practicing hypnosis lead him to discover his dominant side and explore the BDSM world. Neil lives in New York City.

Episode 12 – SoundsFun

We recorded this episode with outgoing leather title holder SoundsFun (Damien) the same night we recorded Episode 11 with Knotty Brent. He is a local kinkster, and someone that I had played with back when he first started to get involved in play. The night of the recording was the night he was stepping down after a year as the Seattle Leather Daddy’s boy title holder for 2012.

We spend some time with him talking about what it has been like having a title and balancing the work that may involve with rest of his life. We learn more the leather contest system and why people get involved.

We have been looking forward for a chance to share with you this interview so you get a chance to get to know SoundsFun a bit more!

Episode 11 – Knotty Brent

Hey all, been looking forward to sharing this episode for a while now! We had on rope bondage enthusiast KnottyBrent, who is the Mr Powerhouse Leather 2012 and the current Northern California Leather Sir 2013.

He was up to be a judge for the Seattle Leather Daddy and Daddy’s boy contest, held in October of 2012. Here at NoSafeWord we have been recording episodes for a while now, putting those shows in the can while we worked out a few things on the website development side. These canned episodes then are held in reserve until there is  week when we can’t record a new show (like this week, Sparky is on the road).

It was a great discussion to learn more about Brent and where he came from, his recent foray into titles and getting into kink, and finding his talent for rope!

Plus we start off the show talking about Daddy Tony’s and Mikey’s hosting of the contest that night as well, which ended up being a great time to watch them in action (not that kind of action, I mean hosting action, jeez!)

This was a fun show and a great time getting to know Brent, so I am very pleased to bring this show to you now!

Brent regularly performs for BEATPIG every 3rd Saturday night at Powerhouse and has performed at the Edge, Chaps II and The Eagle in SF. He has also performed at The Bolt in Sacramento and IML 2011 for COLT Studios, for whom he does rope bondage work for the studio’s new brand, Bound Jocks.

Episode 08 – Larry Talks Fisting, Part 2

Hey all, we just had Part 1 not too long ago of this show, and we wanted to follow up with Part 2 right away to finish out the show. We are going to get even “deeper” into the subject of fisting with Larry! We want to talk technique and supplies and everything you need to know to get started.

Daddy Tony and Sparky both had a long with with long hours on the road for work, and flew back to town just hours before recording this show, so we are more than a little punchy, but was still a good time.

Enjoy!

About Our Guest

Larry has been a member of the kink and fetish communities for more than fifteen years. During that time, he served as President of the Steering Committee for Leathermen’s Discussion Group for three years, as Chair for the planning committee for Leather Levi Weekends 2007 and 2008, as well as serving as a member of the Advisory Council for Leather Leadership Conference XII, (San Francisco 2008).

In 2007, 2008 and 2009, he organized and coordinated the BDSM demonstration area at Leather Alley during SF’s Pride Festival following the Pride Parade. He has also done numerous public demonstrations on a wide array of play for the Stop AIDS Project, SF Citadel, The Society of Janus, Leather Levi Weekend, Leathermens’ Discussion Group, the Ring, ACLC, Sacramento Valley Leather Corps, Leather Leadership Conference, and the SF Leather Daddies, among others. He is now focusing his efforts on strengthening and enhancing the fisting community in SF.

In 2008, Larry began organizing weekend fisting retreats, known as Spring FFling. In September 2008, Larry brought a public fisting venue back to the SF sex scene for the first time since the closure of The Sling. Known as Hell Hole, this monthly play party, which focuses on safer-sex and drug-free play, has been widely and well-received by men not only in San Francisco, but from across the US and around the world. Larry began doing programs on fisting in 2005, and has been a frequent presenter on that topic.

In furtherance of his desire for educating others, in January 2010, the Handball Academy was born. The purpose of the Academy is to provide an educational setting where novices, the curious and those wishing to further hone and develop their fisting skills can come together in an informal setting among their peers to learn, share and grow. The Academy sponsors Novice Workshops, a 5 hour hands-in experience, and quarterly panel discussions, and hopes to implement a weekend Academy in the near future.

In June 2010, his booklet, “The Sacred Art of Fisting,” an outline of play, practice, and safer-sex techniques, was published thanks to a grant from the Stop AIDS Project. That booklet is now undergoing revision and its second edition is scheduled for publication in 2013 in both print and Kindle formats. In 2011, Larry and his partner Loy, began producing Fist Fest in Palm Springs, and in 2012, they brought the Fist Fest weekend to Augusta, GA for its East Coast debut.

Episode 07 – Larry Talks Fisting, Part 1

Daddy Tony invites over a friend of many years, Larry Shockey, to talk about fisting. Larry has been a long time fister, hosting many play parties in his home city of San Francisco and also leading work shops to teach people all they need to know about getting started in visiting.

We had so many questions and wanted to get so “deep” into the subject, we actually recorded a two part episode in one night. In the first part we learn a bit about Larry himself and how we got started in the scene. Coming up in part 2 we will get into some of the mechanics of fistings, such as good lubes, how to clean out and much more.

Daddy Tony and Sparky were pretty punchy in this show, having just came home from a long work trip, but damn if we didn’t have a good time. Lots of boys in the audience, lots of bondage going on, and a lot of fun all around!

Episode 06 – Neil and Erotic Hypnosis

This week we get to spend some time with Neil, a New York based hypno therapist. He talks to us all about the ways in which erotic hypnosis works, what it is, and what it isn’t. We talk about the time Sparky was under several post-hypnotic suggestions during a leather event.

Hypno is a subject that people either are very into, just curious or highly skeptical, and our goal was to introduce the subject to everyone. We are looking forward to having further discussions with Neil to delve any deeper.

We are also putting out the call for any questions you may have about hypnosis; send them in and we will do a future show with Neil and read your question on the air!
