Adult actress, writer, director, and too-many-credits-to-name Stoya joins her longtime friend (comedian, web developer) Mitcz for discussions of sex, politics, relationships, society, life, and more. Join them in Aural Spaces — you just might like it.
011 : An Exploration of Explore
Stoya was in LA, so she and Mitcz took the opportunity to record a podcast in his living room with clip-on mics (while Mitcz’s cat wandered in and out, constantly distracting Stoya) to discuss some HUGE upcoming ZeroSpaces.com changes, and – more to the point – walk you through everything in the latest ZS issue named EXPLORE. You’ll get some fun behind the scenes information, some untold stories, how issues come together, and some personal anecdotes about the motivations, reactions, and more related to the issue. It’s not just an advert, we promise, it’s actually fun and insightful as well.
010 : The Spark or The Security – A Measured Discussion
Stoya and Mitcz start with a discussion of their dating priorities, which leads to them both wondering how anyone else treats the dilemma of an instant electric attraction vs the feeling of safety and security. With this dilemma, they reach out to their friends of a variety of genders and dating situations to ask the question and get a range of responses that illuminate how varied the question itself can evolve, as well as the answers, in this most wide-ranging discussion they’ve had yet.
009 : ZeroSpaces is LIVE
Stoya & Mitcz talk about their long-awaited collaborative adult web project ZeroSpaces. It’s live now, but we recorded this a few days ago to prepare. There’s also plenty of cat talk, some industry rants, and the usual banter.
Mitcz’s mic wasn’t working properly, so his audio isn’t quite as nice as usual. He apologizes for that.
008 : The LA County Measure B Hearing
This week, Mitcz heads to downtown LA to participate… err.. well, watch, the LA County Board of Supervisors hearing on the proposed updated implementation of LA County’s “Measure B” provision, which is another of those pesky anti-porn “you need condoms, you heathens!” laws. We discuss what went down, how it went down, and do some journalist stuff. Like professionals! Kinda!
Stoya gives historical perspectives, a lot of educational remarks, and provides a lot more background on the various laws discussed in this episode.
007 : Exxxotica Chicago 2017 Wrap Up
Here it is, the long-awaited post Exxxotica Chicago 2017 wrap-up episode. It’s a shorter one, both because there wasn’t a lot we (publicly) had to talk about – being a convention and all – and because we’re aiming for shorter, but more frequent, episodes.
So, strap in and hear all about our trip to Chicago!
006 : Petticoated Swashbucklers
This is a special double-episode : Pre and Post Stoya-in-Helsinki edition.
Up first : Stoya & Mitcz discuss the recent Alamo Drafthouse Wonder Woman screening controversy, lending itself to a brief discussion of masculinity and Bromance (which is officially a scholarly term, we found out). From there, we discuss the two-part T*ts and Sass articles about Hot Girls Wanted, and what they explain about the adult industry – including what Rashida Jones truly think of sex workers (in her own words).
We also discuss a fascinating, yet largely forgotten, bit of history when women used hatpins for self defense and the controversy and legal battles that ensued. To round out part 1, we end on a discussion that was touched upon in our Buck Angel episode : women being the sexual pursuer, how Stoya navigates the dating/sex playing field, and how Mitcz does so from the other side of the aisle, while finishing on some discussions about catfishing and online roleplaying.
In part 2, we discuss Stoya’s fun adventures at Wonderlust in Helsinki — including hug procedures, Stoya gets into some rough BDSM spank play, and how Serbia is treating her. There’s a lot of smaller topics and tangents both parties get into and Stoya tells a fascinating story about her layover in Berlin. We round out part 2 with a discussion of power dynamics in relationships based on role, job, age, and more.
Lastly, our first round of “Stoya Guess Pop Culture”. There’s something for everyone! (hopefully?) in this episode.
