For the past 6 years, Sade and I have had the same bed. It’s an Ikea wooden platform bed we’ve converted to meet our sex life. Surrounding the bed are a series of brackets with steel rings for bondage points.
It took less than an hour and it works surprisingly well. My worry was that we’d get into a heavy scene and I’d be pulling on it so hard that I’d rip the rings right off the bed.
Well after six years of use the bed is about to give out on us. The creaking is getting louder and it’s not nearly as sturdy as it once was.
The last few days I’ve been looking for a replacement. Something not too obvious so family doesn’t freak out when they visit, something raised off the floor enough to give us a good chunk of storage.
Metal Bound is the first place I looked. If you haven’t seen it get ready to drool. It’s the gold standard. Almost everything on Metal Bound is on our “When we win the lottery” list. Holy crap that work is amazing.
Stockroom was the next place I looked, really amazing stuff but doesn’t fit our needs.
I can see where this is going so I’m also debating taking a vanilla bed and kinkifying it.
I’d love to hear any reviews/suggestions for a good bed to kinkify or an pre-kinked affordable bed. So if you’ve got any, throw ’em my way either via email, tweet or right here in the comments.
Mollena Williams has been on the Masocast before. Kevin Allison, has been on the podcat a couple of times and his podcast RISK is a must-listen. He’s had Mollena on a few times as well and each time she knocks it out of the park. This latest episode is even better, where she talks about a relationship she had with a guy who’s new to kink and she finds herslef bottoming from the top. It’s really a great episdoe, tune in here.
Sade just brought this to my attention, a video on demand at Vimeo (sorry, not in the US yet)
Full description below:
In an intimate, sensual film France’s most famous dominatrix, Catherine Robbe-Grillet, two close friends and two lovers share their innermost thoughts about love, friendship,dominance and submission.
The Ceremony, a film about love and friendship, depicts cross-border relationships where dominance and submission are central. We meet the fascinating and unusual writer Catherine Robbe-Grillet and those closest to her.
Intimate material reveals participants sharing views on art, norms, identity, ageing, loneliness, friendship and love. The spectator is invited into a fascinating, evocative and private world depicting staged, stylized sadomasochist ceremonies based on Catherine’s universe.
Catherine Robbe-Grillet, a sharp intellectual born in 1930, published her first book (L’image) in 1956. It was banned and publicly burned in Paris. After more than 50 years of exploring eroticism and the world of sadomasochism, Robbe-Grillet is today widely considered France’s most famous dominatrix.
“The Ceremony” takes us far beyond the prejudiced, simplistic and cliché-ridden perceptions of sadomasochism. S/M may be a central theme of the film, but not merely as an exotic phenomenon. The issues raised here take us far beyond sexual orientation. “The Ceremony” delves into what motivates our decisions, not only those concerning desire and sexuality, but our behavior in general. Sadomasochist practices and codes serve simply as a magnifying glass through which we examine the driving forces that make us who we are.
On the latest podcast I sat down with Morgana Maye again to talk about the kinkier areas and early influences of Sci-Fi, Transparent and the reaction of some in the Trans community, her new site Love Your Kink and a lot more.
