Season 2 Episode 14

This week, I discuss a the differences between play relationships and relationships, I read a listener comment from the last show, and I answer the questions below:

  • I’m brand new to the community and the lifestyle. What are some things that I can do so that people take me seriously? What are some pitfalls I should avoid?
  • I am traveling to another place far away from my normal scene. How can I get involved withe local community and not feel like an outsider? Should I even bother?
  • Where is a good place to get toys?

Season 2 Episode 12 | Polyamory

Topic for this week:

Toxic people in the community. We talk about how to make sure that your kink life isn’t filled with drama.

Questions this week:

  1. I am a single guy, I feel really odd when I attend play parties. Partly because I don’t have anyone to play with but mostly because I feel everyone is judging me to be the creepy guy. Is it OK that I attend parties?
  2. I want to meet more kinky girls, where are some of the best places to look? Should I use non-kink sites like Match.com or Tinder?
  3. Are poly relationships worth the hassle? I’ve been conversing with this guy who is poly and wants to bring me into the relationship. Am I opening a huge can of worms here?

Until November 7th I’ll be in the Ontario province of Canada. If you are interested in being on the show and are in that area, feel free to hit me up. We’d love to have locals on the show.

Then we answer your questions:

  1. My girlfriend wants to have open relationship, I’m not sure I’m OK with that, but I honestly don’t know how to feel. Where can I go to get more information?
  2. So I am in love with this girl, but she seems uninterested in me when this other person is around. When He isn’t around, she is all over me. Am I in trouble?

Fetish Event Canceled

Video links are broken. Sorry about that

It’s news posts like this that make me sad. Fetish Event Canceled. Every group likes to get together and meet. Book clubs, gun clubs and even church groups have no issues meeting. I know from personal experience how difficult finding a venue for a public event can be. In this case, it seems the event organizers got a bit farther than I did. Most venues I speak with tell me flatly no and, because of the community backlash it would surely incur, I understand why. It is sad however that, even with the proper precautions in place, BDSM events are still controversial. I’ve gone so far as to get insurance, line up volunteers, determine how best to maintain the privacy of the guests and control access to avoid exposing people to it and even paying double the rate and they still decline.

The mother did have a good point about possible leftovers and having to explain it to the children. Admittedly, I think it would be a little weird to be playing in a place where young children were only hours before. However, with an army of staff, you could easily sweep the entire play space top to bottom. I’d also hope that the venue would do its own cleaning after the event. Our big convention every year is in a hotel and they make sure to clean very¬†thoroughly¬†afterward.

I do appreciate Lisa Helps, the City Councillor standing up for the right for any group to rent the space. I’d hope that, with the proper precautions, ANY group could take advantage of the community center. If a pro-nazi group wanted to hold a rally, I’d hope the community center wouldn’t cave like they did here. It’s an event like any other, so is a BDSM play party. What do you think?
