For another live episode at the Pleasure Chest in NYC, Tina sat down with sex and weed journalist Sophie Saint Thomas and pleasure educator Carly to break down the science of the endocannabinoid system, weed lube, stoner porn, rose petal joints, the difference between THC and CBD, how to objectify someone by turning them into a human bong, ashtray, or edible, forced intox, adult baby diaper stoners, how cannabis can help us heal from sexual trauma, and the importance of cannabis-related social equity programs for currently or formerly incarcerated people. /Plus we field some questions about double-sided dildos, erotic hypnosis, and sounding! /Sophie Saint Thomas is a queer Brooklyn-based writer originally from the Virgin Islands.

    “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out of it!” / In this hilarious and boundary-pushing live episode, recorded in March 2019 at the 2nd Ave Pleasure Chest in NYC, I'm joined by two other queer sex workers, Ashley Paige and Corey More, to discuss the persistently taboo yet insurgently popular concept of incest fantasies! We deepen our ongoing discussion of leather families, while also exploring power dynamics between siblings, whether twincest is homosexual and/or masturbatory, and ponder that age-old ethical chestnut: if you discover the person you're having really hot sex with is your cousin, how long do you wait to tell them? We also get literal about queer parenthood, since Corey was 7 months pregnant when this was recorded and has some stunning insight into trans and nonbinary birthing bodies. /Ashley Paige is a ProDomme, AlphaFemale, and Kinky Travel Companion based in NYC.

    “We are made to feel powerless non-consensually all the time. This is an opportunity to take the power back.” /Content warning: This is conversation between two queer women about erotic fantasies that involve themes of force and violation. Rape scenes are the most fundamental yet thorniest of sexual fantasies. Whether it's force and resistance, psychological control, or emotional humiliation, why are we drawn erotically to things we don't actually want to do or have happen to us? In this episode, we unpack the paradox of consensual non-consent. Andrea brings her training as a therapist to help us understand the difference between abuse and kink play. She also gives some tips for healthy communication within a BDSM power dynamic. /Andrea Glik, LMSW is a psychotherapist, somatic healer, sex educator, and witch.

And who better to embody that queer Daddy vibe than professional dominatrix Ashley Paige? /We discussed what it means for women to claim the title Daddy, whether this is or is not about incest, and how sex work helped Ashley get in touch with her inner vulnerable androgynous top. /Ashley Paige is a ProDomme, AlphaFemale, and Kinky Travel Companion based in NYC.
