LadyBlooding ,

Wonderful Podcast.

I am glad I’ve found this podcast. I love the segments with Dan and Dawn and adore BSing with Barak and Sheba. I’m still only in 2013.. going through all of the old episodes in order until I reach the present where new episodes are still being made!! I can’t wait to hear it all and thank you for putting it all out there for us. 🐙(they need a food on boobs emoji)

Incredible PE podcast

Dan and Dawn are the real deal. They speak from experience on many topics, and bring in great guests. I have had the pleasure of hearing them present at conferences, and appreciate their passion for education. This is what Leather is at its heart.

but thats all good ,

Thank you for helpful pointers

I come from the BDSM world and this podcast was recommended by a play partner of mine.

Your podcast is and has been super helpful. I went all the way back to the beginning and started there. Boy am I grateful I did. I take literal notes of books and shows and podcasts from y’all. And every single time I think of skipping ahead, the episode I’m listening to is absolute gold. So I’ll hear about this review in a while ☺️

Also suuuuper helpful is your experience trying to meld the swinger lifestyle with BDSM. I’m a slave, and boy is there a difference in protocol and what’s acceptable between the two lifestyles. But without dawn’s perspective and translating her early experiences, I wouldn’t have had fun at a swing club.

Because of this podcast, I am more able to actualize my authentic self safely and confidently.

Thank Y/you Dan and dawn! Y’all rock.
