Episode 114 – Project Touchbase

With the daily hubbub of life, it is very easy to lose contact with our friends. We have various social media apps, and that seems to keep us all informed of what’s going on with our friends. But how well do we actually connect with our friends in 140-character messages, or when those status updates are written for the whole world to see? Do we have the same quality of social interaction as we did 5 or 10 years ago?

Pup Figaro thinks that there’s something missing. He’s here to tell us about Project Touchbase, which he and Pup Havok have started, as a way to help people reconnect with each other. And he tells us all about it on this episode.

About Our Guest

Pup Figaro is a co-founder of Project Touchbase with Pup Havok. He is Alpha Pup in the Wruff Pack and has been owned by his Daddy since 2008. Figaro is a Border Collie and as such can be found herding the local pups and Handlers to events. After moving from San Francisco, he found that he very much missed the close-knit SF pup community. He got involved with SEA-PAH, founded VAN-PAH (Vancouver Pups and Handlers), and won the title of Northwest Puppy 2014. Named for his involvement in Opera and Classical singing, Figaro enjoys meeting new pups and finding ways to strengthen the pup community. Figaro loves snickerdoodles, scritches, moshing, and sitting with his tongue out. In July of this year, he won the title of International Puppy 2015.

You can find Figaro on Twitter as @PupFigaro, on Facebook at Pup.Figaro, and on Recon as FigaroPup.

Episode 113 – Can You Even Handle It?

Puppies, puppies, everywhere. But what would puppies be without their handlers? CHAOS, that’s what they’d be. We’ve done a few shows where we discussed various aspects of puppydom. (Like kingdom. Not puppy doms. But a king is usually a dom. Nevermind.) In this episode, we hear about things from the other end of the leash.

We are very delighted to have Northwest Handler 2015 with us. Daddy Rodney has a whole pack of puppies, and he has a lot to say about working with a pack and the handler headspace.

(I was only off by one minute.)

About Our Guest

After meeting Pup Figaro in 2008, Daddy Rodney became actively involved in the puppy play lifestyle.  Since 2008, he’s gone on to become the Daddy for their family pack, Wruff Pack, which currently has 5 puppies and a squeaky toy.

Daddy Rodney is proud to be a founding member of SEA-PAH and VAN-PAH. He’s traveled around the Northwest and in July 2014 to St. Louis for IPC and has had the opportunity to meet pups, Handlers, and those interested from all over the US.

Daddy Rodney competed in the Northwest Puppy and Handler Contest in August 2014 and won his current title of Northwest Handler 2015.  He looks forward to continuing to grow with our thriving puppy community.

Daddy Rodney was previously on Episode 46, when he and Pup Figaro debuted on the NoSafeWord Show.

Episode 112 – Are You Sure?

Recently we heard about Jian Ghomeshi and how he was fired from his job as the host of the popular radio show Q on CBC in Canada. Some of his former sex partners claim that he was abusive. He says that he’s into rough kinky sex. We don’t know which is closer to the truth.

This gives us an opportunity to discuss consent. How to get it. How to give it. How to ensure that you have it before you do something that may otherwise be physically, psychologically, or emotionally harmful. Join us for the discussion.

Episode 110 – Don’t Play with Matches

Every once in a while, you need to do something so crazy and chaotic that you purge yourself of all of the … you know … stuff going on around you. That was tonight. Craziness. Chaos. Drives an OCD control freak nutty. Thankfully, I’ve been to therapy.

Way back when, for Tony’s last birthday, we did a kinky riff on The Match Game. For this episode, the contestants were restrained in sleep sacks with electro attached to the fun bits. As punishment when they give incorrect answers. Well, that was the plan anyway. (Hint: Don’t use perverts for “punishment”.) Don’t miss this one. Hilarity ensues.

Episode 108 – So … Where Do I Put It? Part 1

Some of us do a good job of keeping our professional and personal lives separate. Then there’s Sparky. Apparently, Sparky looks at dating, kink, and porn sites while at work. I say this because tonight’s guest is Steve the Office Guy, who has seen enough of Sparky’s computer at work to ask a lot of questions about kinky stuff. Sparky then invited Steve to join us and ask all of the questions he wants.

Steve asks a bunch of questions because he may be kinky but doesn’t know how or where to start. If you’re in the same place, then you might get some good info listening to this episode.

Stay tuned for Part 2.

Episode 107 – Woodwind Queefs

This episode is a stroll through the meadow. The meadow is pot plants. And the air was full of the aroma of pot. A lot of pot. And then we recorded a show. In the middle of the meadow. With the lovely warm sun. The butterflies flittering by on a gentle breeze. And the aroma of pot. Everywhere.

Which would explain the . . . um . . . sanity (yeah, we’ll go with that) that you’re about to listen to.

About Our Guest

Tank Teachworth, “Mama’s All-American Pup,” resides in Asbury Park, New Jersey. He is an “ambassador at large” full member of the Atlanta based leather club Panther Leather/Levi, and is also an associate member of the Jersey boys of Leather. Tank works full time as community outreach health educator and HIV counselor with the Visiting Nurse’s Association Health Group of New Jersey, in a segment called Project R.E.A.L. (Real Empowerment on All Levels.) At Project R.E.A.L., a youth LGBTQ drop-in center, they focus on relationships, HIV prevention, counseling, rapid testing, social outlets, gender identity, and many more important LGBTQ topics.

In April 2013, Tank became Mr. Atlanta Eagle. “My time as Mr. Atlanta Eagle has been an incredibly powerful experience. I’ve had the pleasure of supporting a variety of charitable organizations, such as Lost and Found Atlanta (a youth LGBTQ homeless shelter,) Alphabet Soup Atlanta (a Transgender support group for friends, allies, partners and men and women in transition,) P.A.L.S. Atlanta (Pets Are Loving Support) and Leather Heart Foundation. Being Mr. Atlanta Eagle has allowed me the opportunity to support the Atlanta Eagle not just an iconic leather bar, but a home to many who felt they had no place to belong. It has truly been one of the greatest pleasures of my life serving as Mr. Atlanta Eagle.” To transition all that from a local bar title into the national stage has been “a tremendous blessing, and I could not be more fortunate, as I am surrounded by the best men and women, and hearts and minds in the community through the American Leather Family.”

Tank also enjoys making the good pups go bad! His kinks and fetishes include puppy play, impact play, breath control, uniforms, sports gear, humiliation, electro, CBT, ass play, interrogation play, power exchange, and many more.

As the American Leatherboy 2013, Pup Tank has chosen to champion a cause in men’s sexual health, specifically through PrEP, Pre-Exposure Prophylactic, a medical treatment used in conjunction with condoms to further prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. He feels as though we must embrace every opportunity to affect change in our community, and if only one life is spared, then the effort is absolutely worth it.

Pup Tank would like to express his deepest gratitudes to Atlanta Panther Leather / Levi for supporting him from the first time he put on leather in public until now, as well as Sir Alan Penrod, Pup Nitro Hankinson, Daddy Sal Susino and Daddy Dion Daly-Susino, and the Atlanta Eagle, for being the playground every pup deserves.

Episode 104 – Mr. Friendly

Few topics create as much emotion among gay men than discussing HIV. We have been living with this disease for over 30 years. There are a lot of attitudes surrounding the virus itself, men who have HIV, men who don’t have HIV, how we talk about sex, and how we approach ourselves and others with the precautions we take to slow the spread of the virus.

Joining us tonight is Dave, the gay man who started the Mr. Friendly campaign to help us realize when we’re stigmatizing and stereotyping other people on either side of the seroconversion equation.

Check out Mr. Friendly’s web site.

And here’s Mr. Friendly!

Episode 103 – Cray Cray

There’s a lot that goes on each evening when we record a show. Stuff that y’all never hear. Our trusty engineer has gotten into the habit of recording our preparation for the show and sometimes what happens after the end of the show, too, so there’s a lot of great nuggets that get caught on tape.

Two weeks ago, we had Tyesha on the show. And there are a ton of nuggets caught on tape. We decided to edit them together (and take out some inappropriate parts) and let y’all in on some of the craziness of the production of an episode of the NoSafeWord show.

Psssst!

Slyy here. Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone. That’s why I’m whispering. But I just want to state two things for the record. First, it’s never my fault. Second, the divas who think they run the show can be really condescending sometimes. Okay, that’s all.
