The inspiring suggestions from Nicholas’s interviewees continue to impress me. This week’s thrifty spotlight includes tips from Alex Andrews, sex worker alumnus and activist; Lady Remedy Ann, professional Mistress; Jacqi Kill, lead singer of THE BAD DRUGS and fetish entertainer; and Satin Jade, satin fetishist.
Toys can be a huge part of a BDSM dynamic. Some people may have a favorite item that they use for every session, but other kinksters are collectors that revel in the acquisition of toys. I fall in the collector category. I love the thrill of buying a new toy or scene enhancer. One of my favorite places to shop is /sub-shop.com/. This online store has ALL the fun normal things like handcuffs and whips plus items that tug at your imagination. For this week’s Thrifty Kink, I wanted to feature this cool store so that My Kinky Friends can get the most bang for their buck when they are shopping for new gear.
The thrifty kink suggestions from the wonderful people that Nicholas has interviewed are as varied and awesome as they are! This week’s thrifty spotlight includes great suggestions from Mistress Genevieve, dungeon proprietress and educator; Susan Wright, founder of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom; and Goddess Nyx, artist, fetish model and experience creator.
We usually break down making something cool or creating a kinky scene for less than ten bucks on Thrifty Kink Thursday. However, I thought it could be fun to explore the dynamics of relationships this week. Using BDSM as bedroom sprinkles is FREE! That’s right! You DON’T have to spend money to be freaky with another person. (Unless you are a filthy pay pig.)
The beautiful Miss Melissa and I are kinksters. I know this shocks our faithful readers because we do come off as chaste demure women who blush at the mention of the word “tinkle.” But in reality, we are huge fans of the weird things that make our loins go buzzy. We think one of the best things about kink is all the toys. If you have begun your own adventure in exploring ideas behind bondage, power play, pet play, and other exciting endeavors, you will start to collect STUFF. We decided to put our pretty little heads together and offer Our Kinky Friends advice on how to manage all the glorious stuff of kink.
by TangledBlue Screens are everywhere: restaurants, stores and even Chuck E. Cheese. Glowing images beckon us in every man-made place and we even carry our own pocket-sized screen in the bathroom to poop because breaking that tether even for a delightful twenty minutes is too much to bear.
Nicholas Tanek was making his own straight jackets as a teenager (see my favorite chapter in Chipped Black Nail Polish, titled “homemade straight jacket”), so I gave him one for his birthday several years ago. The best thing about the straight jacket is that I can use bondage even when I’m too tired to take out my rope. Lazy BDSM is still fantastic sex, but I decided we were long overdue for a session with some thoughtful planning behind it. I wanted to use something with a more complete restrictive feeling than rope or a straight jacket.
Let’s have some fun with sensory deprivation, and let’s do it for FREE! Or at least for under ten bucks, depending on what you have at home.
In his interviews, the Esteemed Nicholas Tanek has graciously included a budget kink question as a nod to these Thrifty Kink articles we try to post each week. The amazing folks that have answered this question have given some really fantastic ideas, and so I have begun harvesting these pearls of wisdom.
When it comes to sexuality, people often overlook the sexiest of sex organs: the brain. Sexy, after all, is a state of mind. It doesn’t matter your dress size, your blemishes, your physical limitations, your lingerie or lack thereof – it’s all in the presentation. It’s an attitude. It’s a voice. You can use your imagination and your words to paint a scene, to transport your partner to a place they’ve never been before.
