We’re joined by an out of town friend, fan of the podcast and the show, Raina, as we discuss the penultimate episode of our season (hopefully not series). Raul Esparza gives his best performance of the series, Richard Armitage creates an otherworldly persona through movement and vocalizations as he truly becomes the dragon. We speculate [...]
Welcome back Perverts! So I’ve settled on twice a month instead of every two weeks. DEAL WITH IT. If you want more, contribute more! Put me out of podcast word talking business! Ignore my reality and substitute your own by sending your thoughts, your clips, your, to quote Donald Trump, your whatever, to email@example.com and [...]
Formerly NBC’s Hannibal goes far off-book with this episode, taking us to a place where we smug book readers are just as uncertain about what is to come in the final two episodes of the season. The Red Dragon is thrown at Will’s family in a tense scene of stalking, Hannibal spends as much time [...]
The double P gained three new members this month when the owners of Shag Brooklyn, Sam and Ashley AKA the Shag Gals, and go-go goddess Ooh LaLoba joined us on stage. We kicked off the Fourth of July weekend with a kinky tiki party. We discussed getting your groove back after your long term relationship [...]
We’re halfway through the Red Dragon arc on Hannibal, and are being given both stunning beauty in the scenes between Dolarhyde and Reba, and stunning acts of CGI crappery (see the below CGI teeth). We go off on several tangents, Cooper calls some fans hipster douchebags and spends a good four minutes angrily ranting about [...]
It’s been a long time, dear listeners. We’re not sure how often we’ll be coming back, but for now we bring you an explanation for our absence. At the end of May, Sophie suffered a series of strokes. She has been recovering ever since and this episode is a very personal, deep look at what [...]
The Red Dragon arc reaches the beauty that separates this work of fiction from so many in this genre with the introduction of Reba McClain (Rutina Wesley) and beginning to peel back the story of Francis Dolarhyde. Meanwhile Will and Hannibal begin a dance of working together in their own family, as Hannibal remembers his [...]
Welcome Back Perverts! There’s been a whirlwind of activity around here and personally I’m damn excited about what we’ve got for you. Today’s show is in five parts; Ginger and the Professor visit a bar with an on-location Intellectual Foreplay to discuss ways of addressing labels and norms within groups, Michelle Renee arranges an Independence [...]
We’re joined by Kate Kulzick from Sound on Sight‘s Hannibal podcast This is Our Design joins us to discuss the rise of The Great Red Dragon, as Miko completes her summer walkabout in a vacation home with poor wifi. Cooper is a bit jarred by the transition from pretentious seventies foreign film first half of [...]
Do white rocks in front of a house in the suburbs mean there might be swingers inside? Believe it or not, this is still a question we get, without fail, every month or so. This way of picking out swingers is a part of our history. Then history became legend. Legend became myth. And along with so many ideas about swinging, open relationships, and sexuality, they became part of the rich folklore that has accompanied our favorite past-time. We discuss swinger history and sexual folklore with guestDr. Jeana Jorgensen.
We took over Otto’s Shrunken Head on June 11th! Ericka Hart, Sexual Health Educator, Performing Artist, and Photographer joins the Pussy Posse and Mandarin Moon-Fly graces us with her wonderful Go-Go skill! We discuss summertime sex preparedness (and you can never be too prepared, period sex shenanigans, places to have sex in NYC, back rubs [...]
An episode that could very well be the series finale, as it brings us all the way up to the beginning of the Thomas Harris novels (excluding Hannibal Rising). The Italy portion of this season comes to a close, as does Mason Verger’s story line. This episode brings us some of the most bizarre and [...]
Recently, our own United States of America had a watershed moment. An injustice so deeply ingrained into what we've called society, what we've called family, what we've called "real and respectable” with one fell swoop, became righted as a matter of not just public policy, but as law.
The Supreme Court's decision on Obergefell v. Hodges granted marriage equality for all persons, and while the rest of the country's legal structure catches up to the new reality, we're seeing a vocal minority of polyamorous people... and a surprising amount of popular media address the possibility of multiple partner marriage… Poly marriage.
We welcome Cunning Minx back to the Swingset, where she and Dylan step on their soap boxes and bring up Justice Roberts’ dissent’s thoughts on a plural marriage slippery slope, Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion based on fundamental rights instead of the expected equal protection. We discuss what marriage is anyway and what it represents between us as people, us as the government, and us and our beliefs. We look at where polyamorous groupings and families are vulnerable and what marriage, or a set of contracts granting protection, or possibly an incorporation would do to protect them.
Also… we discuss why we’re in the “Reefer Madness” stage of the general public recognizing what polyamory is.
Some articles that might interest you since they informed our discussion (for better or worse… THANKS MEDIA):
We took over Otto’s Shrunken Head on May 7th and brought The Frisky Fairy into the Pussy Possy and welcomed back Sweet Lorraine for some extra sweet go-go action! We discuss how Millennials are constantly ruining and complicating things by taking, super simple scissoring, and making it into something called “tribbing”. Millenials. Also, we host [...]
Everything comes to a head in Florence, as Hannibal’s time there is nearly at an end. Bedilia puts her drug and confusion filled plan into effect, Mason, Margot, & Alana go to plan B, and Will is briefly reunited with Jack, before getting to the reunion we’ve all been waiting for. All on this episode [...]
We all go on dates. Maybe it's a play date with another sexy couple. Maybe it's a romantic getaway with a partner we only see every couple months. Maybe it's a night of taking off your clothes and cleaning someone's apartment for them while they watch you barely contain your excitement. We all date, and we all eventually have other relationships, people we're making a life with, other people we're fucking, maybe a daddy, and while what we're doing is ultimately our business, we still want to do right by and be right with the people we choose to call our people.
We discuss how hard it is to manage multiple relationships and that respecting multiple people simultaneously while developing new relationships takes skill, mindfulness, presence, and lots of communication of expectations, needs and considarations.
The veil is lifting, and Cooper believes that the acceptance of bisexual males is becoming more commonplace. He has his fingers crossed.

We've all been in situations that we were really... REALLY eager to be in.... then realize in the moment maybe we don't want to be in this particular situation but you like everyone involved and you don't want to spoil the mood, and you want to step back gracefully and disengage. We discuss learning how to get a handle on your own emotions both in the moment and after, we relay some of our strategies in communicating lack of enthusiasm for the act without accidentally conveying lack of enthusiasm for the person, and take care of some "business".
The tragic hubris of Inspector Pazzi comes to a head in an episode that gave us severe déjà vu from the film version of Hannibal. We lament that his story was rather brief, and a single line change from the text leads Cooper down a complaint path to Watchmen. In the mean time Will and Chiyoh [...]

A bang up episode that finds Chilton running his Avengers Initiative, Dead Abigail, and post Red Dinner origins for all of our characters. We meet Joe Anderson’s version of Mason Verger and are quite pleased, as well as find out what happened (in brutally graphic fashion) to Frederick Chilton post Miriam Lass intervention last season. [...]
In the wake of both Fetlife and Adult Friend Finder getting their content and naughty secrets scraped and posted online, there has been a renewed discussion about secrecy and privacy in swinging & polyamory. Katie Mack joins us to discuss these topics and think about what it means to be secretive, how it relates to our own private closets and give you suggestions on maintaining your cone of privacy in the modern Internet age. Social networks, dating & swinging sites, privacy v. secrecy, photos, (more) secure payment methods, burner phones and email accounts are all on the table.
