2023-01-04 ~ Kinky Talks 40: Drop, drop, event-drop

After the new year’s parties, after the first reality checks of our own new year’s resolutions, and after last year’s pandemic, it seemed kinda logical to come up with this Kinky Talk’s theme: “Drop, drop, event-drop!” 😉 Almost every sub AND most Doms know that feeling of “drop” two, or three days after great events,…

2022-12-14 ~ Kinky Talks 39: Chemsex in the Scene

Chemsex is an easy subject to ignore… until you can’t ignore it anymore. That is why Adalberto and I like to highlight the fun, the risks, the slippery slope, the highs, the “gezelligheid”, the lows, the point of no return, the rock-bottom and that swampy sinking feeling when you notice you should really start to…

2022-10-12 ~ Kinky Talks 37: Community: What’s in a name?

“Community”: A community is a social unit (a group of living things) with commonality such as place, norms, religion, values, customs, or identity. Communities may share a sense of place situated in a given geographical area (e.g. a country, village, town, or neighbourhood) or in virtual space through communication platforms. Durable good relations that extend beyond immediate genealogical ties also define a sense of community, important to…

MonkeyPox and Pride

Monkeypox is a disease from a virus that is spread by rubbing skin to skin, or by puss or infected skin cells that still lay around somewhere after they were rubbed off the tiny scabs from former lesions. Not everybody has symptoms. So basically you’re not sure if you are infected. So if we meet…

2021-12-01 ~ Kinky Talks 27: HIV – PrEP – U=U and more

In this talk, we were diving into the kinky mind and we heard about the most recent research from a psychological perspective on “people who practice kinks”. Guided by Karina Kehlet Lins we tried to better understand what it is that draws us towards practising BDSM. And she talked about how the clinical world is…

2021-09-04 ~ Kinky Talks 24: From Sex to Chems and Back

Especially the people who are fond of kicks and new sensations and people who like to party and play, they are likely to have encounters with drugs (and alcohol is a drug too) and/or with people that use drugs in a combination with sex. Watch the talk about chemsex without blame or nonsense. And if…

2021-08-04 ~ Kinky Talks 23: Puppies and their bone(r)s

The world of pupies is far away from our own ‘normal’ world for a lot of us kinksters. But in the last years this kink is really booming. And the playfulness of this kink is be really appealing. Docile dogs, beauty-dogs, bratty dogs, playful dogs. People on all fours running around really feeling like being…

2021-07-07 ~ Kinky Talks 22: A deep dive into sub space…

There are a lot of ideas and opinions about subspace. It has to do with pain it has to do with humiliation, it has to do with role-play, it’s all about endorphins in the brain et cetera et cetera. Let’s be clear, there is no final answer yet in science for it simply has not…

2021-06-15 ~ Kinky Talks 21: Monster Toys, Monster fun?

We feel that we are not stretching it when Adalberto and I both hoped for a really deep talk about the things one could do with big toys. And even tho we were prepared well for some really in-depth discussion about ways “to go the distance” and perhaps some “how to’s”, to go where no…

2021-05-26 ~ Kinky Talks 20: Consent is Sexy!

2021-05-05 ~ Kinky Talks 19: The world of gimps and drones

The world of gimps and drones: imagine you’d be in rubber enclosure being (ab)used or being enjoyed visually.

We’ll ask them to explain to us the various different forms…

2021-04-14 ~ Kinky Talks 18: Is more extreme more fun?

People do view us kinksters as being a bit extreme sometimes. Does that have to do with ‘the media’ portraying us as ‘extreme’ so they can offer the readers a nice and voyeuristic view (and then distance themselves with quotes like: “we are happy that we don’t need that”). Or are only the people that…

2021-03-24 ~ Kinky Talks 17: What makes a good Dominant?

After an annoying start due to technical zoom sh#t, Hans West and Johnny Iron started this evening up with some basic thoughts about the question “What makes a good Dominant?” And not so much the obvious “things”, the visible and the ‘twitterable’, but rather the person underneath the Dom. The relationship underneath the D/s.

2021-03-03 ~ Kinky Talks 16: Happy Coronaversary!

2020-11-18 ~ Kinky Talks 11: How to avoid Drama!

2020-10-28 ~ Kinky Talks 10: Leather! (guest: Stephan – Mr Leather NL)

Stephan was talking about the ways Covid influenced his life as a regular clubber and darkroom enthusiast, being “jailed at home”.
