    Empress Wu: Cannibalism pt1

    Empress Wu: Cannibalism pt1

    “While my mouth is open, he gets lost among my teeth, sliding down my throat, not being able to escape my mouth.” //
    In truly one of the most deranged episodes in the history of this podcast, Empress Wu and I speculate about the thrall of cannibalism, figurative and in some cases literal. Mukbang videos, a client called Mental Dental, vore, giantess fetishists, vomiting fetishists, eating each other out, drinking cum and piss, the romance of only having so much meat to give, the moment in sex when you're so close you never want to leave, and how cannibalism flips consumption inside out. //
    Empress Wu is an NYC-based dominatrix and cultural activist, primarily operating via performance, curation, writing, and production to explore the semiotics of sex work, and its effect on the body politic. In her spare time, she can be found loudly preaching conspiracy theories about slime videos.

We discuss cilices, bloody bibles, corruption, possession, places to store a rosary, lesbian nuns, demon dildos, and mortification of the motherfuckin flesh!

    DaemonumX: Catholicism pt1

    DaemonumX: Catholicism pt1

    DaemonumX aka Christine talks about her leather dyke zine FIST, her polyamory zine LINKED, and what it even means to be a zine maker in 2019. We also chat about her notorious rope suspension performances and why they’re more about sadism than beauty. Then we settle into a discussion of Catholicism: how Christine went from an inquisitive young Catholic to a blaspheming dyke confessing about impure thoughts to another femme at a party called Slutpile. Stay tuned for Part 2 where we discuss lesbian nuns, demon dildos, and mortification of the motherfuckin flesh! //
