A while ago, we worked with Analisa Murphy who did a scientific study to better understand the effects of non-monogamy (or any kind of open relationship) on relationships and sexual satisfaction. This is now completed, so it was time for an interview to chat about the learnings. She also explains her personal journey into swinging, from getting married at an early age to leaving the Mormon religion and the impact this has on her life, her kids and her sexuality. We talk about: * The danger of "no sex before marriage" and the damage it can do before discovering polyamory. * There are tricks mormons use to go swinger parties without anybody noticing.* Being gay in the Mormon church, getting kicked out for getting AIDS. For more information: * Read "A Prospective Investigation of the Decision to Open Up a Romantic Relationship"* Follow Analisa on twitter
We gave the our roaming reporters (the Mr. and Mrs. Puppy) the microphones and let them run amok during Folsom Street Faire in San Francisco. They talk to people on a range of subjects: Whips, choosing floggers, pony play, "puppy play" and a whole bunch of kink. Contact us and let us know where you will be during the next Folsom!
The gang debriefs from Naughty in Nawlins and Mr. Puppy gives advise on how to behave on swinger dating sites. How to create a profile, how to respond. If you have any questions you would like to hear answered, just ask.
Part 2 of our Naughty in Nawlins visit: We interviewed Organic Loven and a bunch of visitors, each with their own vision on swinging, kink and sexuality, and close it up by dragging the couple from "Ecstatic Hearts" into our bed for interview on tantra, sacred sexuality, and improving and extending your orgasms thru specific techniques and vocalisations. Want to join in the fun at NiN? Make sure to grab your room before they sell out!
During Naughty in Nawlins 2017 (one of the largest swingers events, in New Orleans), misses Puppy and Jon ran into our instructor for the "erotic wrestling" class. She turned out to very cute, great a giving lapdances and an all-round awesome person. We sat down and chatted about kink, polyamory, bi-sexuality, penis size, wrestling, stripping (including "pole burn") and porn. Andre Shakti is a journalist, educator, performer, activist, and professional slut living in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is devoted to normalizing alternative desires, de-stigmatizing sex workers and their clients, and not taking herself too seriously. Andre wrestles mediocre white men into submission and writes about sex work, queerness and non-monogamy for Cosmopolitan, Thrillist, MEL, Vice, and more. She can frequently be found marathoning Law & Order: SVU under a chaotic pile of partners and pitbulls, and yes, she knows how problematic that show is.

Rev. Jon and Mrs. Puppy run the dungeon at Tangerine's Dream together where they broaden the spectrum of kink for fans, newbies, and curious onlookers. Mrs. Puppy tries her hand as a top under the expert direction of Rev Jon. They had a busy and fun night working as a team to bring bliss to the line of willing victims. They meet super fans Mr. and Mrs. Chill where they provide Mrs. Chill with a little taste of their brand of kink. They later decide to expand on their experience with a private date. On a date in San Francisco they take the Chills further into their journey of kink. They visit some of Rev. Jon and Mrs. Puppy's favorite places starting with coffee at Wicked Grounds and a nice chat about how Mr. and Mrs. Chill found their way into kink. They then head to the leather shop "Leather Etc" where Rev. Jon, and Mrs. Puppy help Mrs. Chill pick out her very first corset with the support of Mr. Chill. After a fun day of hanging out it was time to get down to some kinky fuckery where the Chills find out exactly what their pleasure is as they experienced kink Bliss Bringers style.
SinD, Reverend Jon, Bill and Alice hang out together in this post-action debrief bedcast. It was Alice's first visit to a BDSM dungeon (we took her to "Dragon's Gate" in Los Angeles), where she got tied up and suspended, and had all sorts of things done to her. We give our updates and review our progress in the lifestyles of BDSM, Swinging and polyamory. Quick note: We are going to "Nawty in New Orleans"! There are a few rooms left, so if you want to party with us and a few thousand of our closest swinger friends, sign up now!
Mr. and Mrs. Puppy visit "the armory", the infamous porn-studio that is home of "the upper floor". These are their adventures.
Mister Bill, Jon and SinD first debrief about Fetish and Fantasy event, then about their various polyamorous and swinging relationships. Bill does an inventory of his relationships and reviews how they are similar but different. Jon interviews a brand-new member of the "Dragon's Gate" gang, who at her young age has dived deep into kink and her various turn-ons. Back home, the newly formed poly gang (SinD, Jon, Night owl) debriefs about the changes in their relationship. This episode is a bit different from the usual form, as we give our unfiltered feelings an thoughts on the journey throughout the various forms of non-monogamy.

Exploring polyamory, BDSM and kink in the swinging lifestyle. We catch up with Mr. and Misses Puppy (see previous episodes for background). The first interview is right after a hotel playdate with Mr, Misses Puppy, and L a.k.a. "Mr. Puppy's new toy". In second part, debrief with "Nightowl", the poor massage therapist (and general fun kinky guy) that SinD corrupted. We go over the difference between the different lifestyles: swinging versus polyamory, BDSM communication styles versus those used in the swinging lifestyle. Jon explains and demos some of his secret techniques on air on Misses Puppy. Yes, there was wine consumed during the taping.
We had an interesting discussion with Lee Harrington, author of an eclectic set of books. His latest is "Traversing Gender", which provides a "newbies guide to other genders", with many references throughout the world and history. It also reviews the differences between all the various terms like "transgender", "transsexual", "trans", "intersex" and a multitude of others. As a transgender person, the realities of "play" in both the swinging or BDSM lifestyles is completely different and very challenging. Lee explains the differences in treatment of transgender folk throughout the years, and his own transition. Other stories: * Visiting the San Francisco Power Exchange club, and confusing the bouncer as to what door rate to get * Freaking people out by masturbating with a Hitachi. * Dealing with rejection * The bath-house scene for gay (and other) men * How to be an "ally": Skills and information * How to approach any play in a "gender-fuzzy" environment * Using the "Safer Sex Elevator Speech" in between trans and cis * The wide array and types of trans experiences * Challenges based on gender, race, class, age and disability From the book blurb: In the current age of gender identity and transgender awareness, many questions are coming to light for everyone. Whether brought about by media and cultural attention or personal journeys, individuals who have never heard of transgender, transsexual, or gender variant people can feel lost or confused. Information can be hard to find, and is often fragmented or biased. Meanwhile, trans people are getting a chance to dialogue with each other and finally be heard by the world at large. In Traversing Gender: Understanding Transgender Realities, author Lee Harrington helps make the intimate discussions of gender available for everyone to understand. Bringing these personal matters into the light of day, this reader-friendly resource is written for students, professionals, friends, and family members, as well as members of the transgender community itself. It is here for you and those in your life, helping create an opportunity for overcoming the challenges trans people face through awareness and action, making the world a better place one life at a time. One may think that in this day and age, the problems of the LGBTQ community are a thing of the past, but when looking outside of our bubble (especially at the recent events in the news), we see that we still have a long way to go. Regardless of what position we pick on the spectrum, we owe it to the community to be informed.
The entire team jumps on the big bed in the Captain's catamaran in the Bahamas. We catch up on what everybody has been doing. * We just completed the "Beachbody cruise" with about 6000 well-trained bodies stuck on a boat. * Captain is chartering the boat for "AirBB" and kinky travel. (Drop him a line if interested: email@example.com). * Villain Jon is coding away on his new super-secret sexy project. * SinD is getting swingers into sexy shape. (If you want to be trained by her, send her a mail) * The girls agree: the celebrator is the best vibrator you can own (you even hear it in action) If you like a cruise with sexy swingers, we recommend "Couple Cruises".
We take it down a notch and review the year 2015 and make our plans for 2016, which includes the BeachBody cruise, Naugthy in Nawlins and other fun swinger activities. The team reports in from "SantaCon" San Francisco, where our gang tried to convert some vanillas during the wild "city takeover". First we go shopping in at the BDSM flea-market at the Citadel for new toys, then we take over "Divas", which is a cross-dressers bar, and create havoc and spanking demonstrations. It is amazing how quickly you can get people on state to get their butts spanked and flogged once you give them a few drinks and an excuse. After all that the entire group crashes at the hotel, and we let Mr. Bill run wild again with the recorder. He gets (those who haven't crashed yet) to review their best stories. We also answer a couple of listener e-mails: * A listener in Tasmania whats to find places to get their kink on locally. * Listing of Fetlife activity in Tasmania * Recommend books: BDSM 101 (a good refresher on basic kink), Two Knotty boys (great Shibari bondage techniques) * A gay/bi male asks about swinger etiquette and how to prevent others from freaking out when there are body parts all over the bed. We give some practical tips and tie it back to communicating with the other players before swinging times happen. If you are going to try something like a double penetration, some of the guys parts are going to touch sooner or later. It's physics! * He also wonders about bringing family members into a swinging party, which is something we have seen happen on rarely: Once a sister-sister combo (For the record: Jon only played with 1 of them) and once somebody bringing their aunt. If you have any questions or comments, send them in and we will answer them on-air!

We got an incredible deal for you today, just in time for the holidays! This episode is a double feature: We visited "Bawdy Storytelling" and spoke with the ever unstoppable "Dixie De La Tour" about her concept of erotic storytelling as an art form, changing the community and ... fisting on a first date. As is a yearly ritual, we also hit "Folsom Street Faire", after which we interview "Marcello", who works as a performer on stage an in various videos for Kink.com and others. He talks about the porn industry, being a professional slave and performing in front of an audience. All the images from both event are available in our Kasidie group, since that has proven the best way to keep the kids out.
