Welcome to Erotic Awakening, an informative and entertaining exploration of all things erotic. From sacred sexuality to fetishes, Power Exchange and polyamoary, BDSM to erotic spirituality, non standard relationships to alternative love styles, as well as simply fun kink.

In this bonus podcast, Lee finds himself in San Francisco interviewing JD on zen, bondage, philosophy for authenticity, and the intersections on kink, sex, passion, and eastern philosophy.  Even with extra Alan Watts!

JD is member of the internationally renowned bondage duo Two Knotty Boys. He is the producer of over 300 knot and rope bondage instructional videos, and is the coauthor of two popular rope bondage guidebooks, “Two Knotty Boys Showing You the Ropes” (2006) and “Two Knotty Boys Back on the Ropes” (2009). Aside from his work as an educator and promoter of the rope arts, he is also a writer. His popular essay "The Way of the Zen Rope Master" was featured in the anthology, "Rope Bondage and Power" and his multiple novels can be found and purchased at, among other places, Amazon.com.

This week, Dan and dawn get so involved in the Question of the Day it becomes the show topic - a classic case of hijacking your own showD&d explore the idea of sending your submissive off to training with someone else - be it a training place, a group or an individual. They explore the pros and cons of this for single submissives, slaves that are already in relationships, and people new to the lifestyle. This leads to an exploration of what Masters prefer (do we want to train you ourselves or do we prefer pre-training of some sort?). As well as a bunch of related discussion. 


We also talk about our upcoming half day intensive, going live and broadcasting, and a furry based card game we are trying to learn!
