    DARK SIDE #147 - BDSM and Religion/Spirituality PART 1 OF 2

    THE DARK SIDE BDSM EDUCATIONAL PODCAST
    DARK SIDE #147 - BDSM and Religion/Spirituality PART 1 OF 2Yes we BROKE a cardinal rule - or just getting ourselves into
    deep doo doo - LOL.... but WITH RESPECT - we did a Threadcast on a
    potentially thorny topic - but happily it was heavily discussed with respect.
    You, our listeners answered the following post on www.Fetlife.com ;There are NO RIGHT ANSWERS,,, this is about you and what works for you.
    We are wondering if we have any listeners who self identify as being both into BDSM as well as being Religious or Spiritual.
    - Please elaborate on your kink identity (D/s, Sadist, Fetishist,
    Kinkster) and how you express that - as well as elaborate on what your
    religious/spiritual side looks like (practicing Catholic, Wiccan, Pagan,
    Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, etc etc).
    - Do you have issues between the two parts of your life?
    - How do you resolve the differences between these 2 polar opposite interests?
    - Any advice for resolving issues or how you maintain happiness living in both worlds?Look for Part #2 next week - the full double episode was OVER 4 HOURS long ! _____________________________

    DARK SIDE #146 - Topic of More Mighty Need

    THE DARK SIDE BDSM EDUCATIONAL PODCAST
    DARK SIDE #146 - Topic of More Mighty NeedWe received great feedback based on the last podcast - then gave our follow-up.The original topic was as follows;A listener wrote us
    in a question/topic about how she could encourage her Dom to dominate
    her more. DA and KN dance delicately around this can of worms - but
    dissect the topic and answer all of her questions - as best they can.-Have you ever been in a similar situation?
    -How do you ask for more without being disrespectful?
    -Are there any subtler ways that don't require that much confidence? ^.^
    -Do you have any good resources for new doms?
    -Any suggestions on how to present those resources? (My particular case
    involves someone who is very cocky- and rightfully so! Usually..)
    -What's the best starting point for a long term vanilla-ish relationship to transition into full time d/s?
    -Any other advice I've overlooked asking for.. _____________________________

Fabulous

DA and all the Erotic Awakening podcast hosts do it for the BDSM/kink community and it shows.... Love you guys!

P.S.III ,

Well that’s 1:30hrs of my life I can’t get back

Episode on religion and spirituality in kink, was a complete wast of time. An hour and 1/2 long pseudo intellectual discussion on many subjects the presenters only partly understood, at best.

Only ever gave opinions, and frequency those were founded on half truths and misunderstood facts.

Not useful in the least. No I’m wrong there was one point that was valid and that was that for all of the bad press about religion there are manny manny more good religions people.

Sorry guys it bombed.

DanyaH ,

Excellent!

Well thought out, well structured, educational, and entertaining! I've learned so much from The Darkside that has improved my relationships and/or has spurred intellectual or emotional discussions with my partners to improve negotiations and make our lives better. I recommend it to anyone involved in or curious about alternative kinky lifestyles.
