On this month’s BS'ing we are podcasting with the Yeti! Yes, it's new microphone testing time. 

This week, we answer these Kinky Questions for Newer people -

1. My Partner and I filled out our Kink Lists, and they are totally different! How do we fix this impasse? or can we?

2. What kinds of toys and equipment should I have when I am brand new? What about pervertables, and making my own?

3. Any Advice for someone whose partner just asked if the other wants to dominate them?

We also talk about Play Poly; How to find the "Hot" and still "Bring it home Hot;" Can a pre-existing couple suddenly develop a power exchange? Does Barak's love of Broadway Musicals make him Gay? Omnisexual? or Metrosexual? How to break down a fetish or a kink into it's root or essential part? How does Douglas Kent's The Better Built Bondage Book fit into all this? Where do floggers and Cat o' nine tails really come from? We talk about these things and more!

Check it out and let us know what you think!
