Interview with:

Countess Ylva (Fetlife Profile)

Countess Ylva has spent the last five years in the scene, most of it as a submissive. More recently she has come to see herself as a top and has been doing a lot of work around the topic of transferring her experience to the other side of the slash. She has participated in numerous demos and classes, particularly involving edge play and taboos. her interests and training include a biology degree with focuses in neuroscience and anatomy, basic psychology training, familiarity with meditative exercises and trance states, sharps, and various forms of behavioral control

Viewer Questions:

Kairi from Delaware – I am currently in a D/s relationship with someone. This person is my slave. Lately, I’ve wanted to sub to someone else. However, I am worried this might be an issue for my slave. He wouldn’t want to see me being submissive. How can I talk to him about this? I don’t want to end the relationship with him.

Jeff from Montana – I am relatively new to BDSM in general. As I am just starting off, what kinks should I focus on? Are there any that will make me more popular?

Kelsi in Texas – I just made the move from California to Texas. In California, I felt I was a part of the community. In Texas not so much. I attend virtual munches but it seems that people are set in their groups. already. How do I break into the community?


This week: Pornhub removing unverified content

Interview with documentary filmmaker Richard Schertzer https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8296449/

User Questions:

1 Kyle from Connecticut – As I am sure everyone is having the same issues now, I figured I’d ask. Right now, pick up play is hard. Everyone is worried about getting the virus (and I can’t say that I blame them). What kinds of play can I learn that can be done safely in these times? Or, what can I do to make scenes as safe as they can be?
2 Kallie from Utah – I’ve always enjoyed going to BDSM events. Right now, our local clubhouse is closed due to the virus. I do own a house and would like to set up a dungeon. Any tips or places I can get things inexpensively?
3 Kendra from California – So, like many, I’ve lost my job. I was debating starting an OnlyFans. Do you have any experience with how to get started with this?


Sorry for the short episode, more to come.

Product Review – Locked in Lust Chastity Cage


The Locked in Lust chastity cage is very well made and has very durable materials. It had several pieces and was like operating a puzzle. I had to practice with it a few times before putting it on someone, however, once I mastered it, putting it on again was no challenge whatsoever. The most unique part of it is the vice. It is something I haven’t seen on chastity devices in the past. The design of it makes it a breeze to install and makes escape very difficult. Trying to escape results in a lot of pain. The Locked in Lust cage also has a very low profile and quite hard to detect under clothes. Lock them up and leave let them go out into the world, confident that you hold his key and that there is no escape.

Additionally, and possibly most importantly for me, it is easy and fast to remove. When you are in the moment, nothing is worse than fumbling with locks, all the while getting frustrated. It comes off easily and is easy to keep clean due to the high-quality plastic. This is the best cage that I have experienced. Highly recommended.

Rope Squirrel

Overall, I rather like the cage itself. Being a chastity fiend myself, I’ve tried a LOT of cages over the years. Some I got simply for trying out on people (because you can’t make custom belts/cages for everyone as it would be expensive). So I buy cheap cages and belts to see if people like them before investing in something custom. This model is similar to other plastic cages, however it has a very key difference: the vice. While this doesn’t make the cage inescapable, it certainly disincentivizes you from trying. I did manage to put out of it albeit in considerable pain, and I still had the thing hanging from my balls. I am convinced that I could get out of it, but I am not sure that my junk would be usable for some time, and I certainly couldn’t get back into it.

Would I use this as my long term, unattended chastity device, either for myself or for others? Probably not. But in the context of the scene or a kinky weekend con, yes. I just know myself and I’m an escape artist. If you tell me I can’t do something, I always look for ways around it. For example, website blocks at work were smashed within a day. I am also not a huge fan of cages for unattended use as I can escape from them. However, if the person is supervised or nearby, I would use it as a first model. 

Therefore, I recommend this model for anyone looking to get into chastity. It isn’t very expensive and has an assortment of sizes for both the ring and the vice itself.

John from Louisiana – Fitting in has always been an issue for me. In school, I was always the outcast. Now that I’ve joined what is, in essence, a group of outcasts (the BDSM community) I feel that I am an outcast there too. How do I go about fitting in?
Cindy from New Mexico – Whenever I attend events, it always seems like I can never find people to play with. Everyone seems to be already paired off and ready to play. How do I approach people for play or possibly a relationship?
xMartinx from Discord – In a recent episode, rope squirrel spoke about his introduction to the community. However, I wanted to ask some followup questions
* When did you get involved?
* What was your first experience like and how did that go?
* You said you regretted your first scene, why? What happened?

Stella from California – I like to think of myself as a “woke” person, but I am having difficulty with the whole transgender thing. I never know what I should be calling people pronoun-wise and am always worried that I will offend someone by using the wrong one. How can I navigate this new landscape of sexuality?
Josh from ??? – I really love BDSM. However, my entire life I’ve been told not to hurt women. With my current partner, I’ve tied her up and pleasured her, but now she wants me to hurt her. I am not sure how I can get over my societal conditioning. Any advice?
Jacqueline from Kansas from Discord – Hearing you two talk I have a question for you both: What is one thing that you wished you knew day one of this lifestyle that you know now?

Product Review: Rose Gag by Zalo

Ritzy Cracker’s Review: I really liked this gag. Firstly, the packaging. Opening it reveals an almost premium feel. After removing the lid I was presented with one of my favorite things about the gag which I don’t think was intended, the bag to put the gag in after discarding the box. I spent a good amount of time rubbing the bag against my face because it was so soft.

Then there is the gag itself. It has a very comfortable texture. I tried it on myself and didn’t have any issues with it, which has been a probelm for me with some gags. I especially like the rose gag as it ads an unusual bit of elegance to the gag. Best of all, the rose was removable to reveal a breathing hole therefore the gag could be used with people who have breathing issues or at least who don’t like the restricitveness of gags.

The strap to secure it had gold plating and the entire gag has a very premium look and feel. I am very happy with this product and would love to see what else they have in their lineup. It would certainly turn a head or two.

Kayla from South Carolina – My scenes are becoming stale. I try and try and come up with creative things, but it never seems to work. I end up reverting back to my tried and true. Do you have any advice to get my fires of creativity going once more? I’m worried people may lose interest in playing with me if I can’t, to borrow a comedian saying, come up with some new material.
Ritzy’s Rants: Body Image and BDSM
Mary from New York – I know all kinds of people and lots of people have asked to play with me. I’m hesitant because I don’t know if they are safe or not. How do I find out?
