    Embracing Death

    Embracing Death

    Death: everyone does it. Sex: it sells. But can we sell you on the concept of sexy death? Have a drink with us and Dick, podcast host and sex/kink educator, as we talk about death fetishism and his personal history with it. We talk about the allure of finality, safety concerns, and misconceptions about this too taboo subject.
    Books and studies referenced in this episode were:
    Lisa Downing's "On The Limits of Sexual Ethics"
    John Money's* work on erotophonophilia & autassassinophilia
    and Caitlin Doughty's work in the Death Positive movement
    Check out Dick's other work hosting Off The Cuffs (@OCPKink) and Being There (@BeingTherePod), and reach out to him on twitter or via email!

    *NOTE Money did, absolutely, have a generally sordid contribution to the field of gender and sexuality studies, but he was one of the first to give serious platform to much of the field

    Dissecting the Zombie Film

    Dissecting the Zombie Film

    Movie spoilers ahead! This week we have a drink with Bill and delve into the world of film. The occult and religion have a big role in cinema, so we narrowed our discussion to two movies that explore Santeria to... differing effects: "I Walked with a Zombie" (1943), and "Angel Heart" (1987). Join us for a drink as we chat about the actual craft of film making, the history of the medium, and give some background insight to what makes a movie spooky. We also touch on the important subject of racism and xenophobia in movies that use other cultures for shock value, the importance of doing your research, and such taboo subjects as Mickey Rourke's ass.
    Check out Bill's work in I Don't Get It and American Caesar. And be sure to reach out to him on Twitter!
    Movies referenced in this show include "The Haunted Castle" (1896), and E. Elias Merhige's "The Begotten" (1990).
