SS 325: Gang Bang the Mailbag 36 – Swinging while Broken, Addiction and Swinger Culture, and More!

2

The Swingset crew is back with another Gang Bang the Mailbag! Cooper S. Beckett, Dylan Thomas, Dr. Liz Powell, Dirty Lola, and Mister Pent answer listener voicemails and emails!

Voicemailbag Question #1 Summary

How can my husband better navigate swinger culture after coming clean from an alcohol addiction?

Voicemailbag Question #2 Summary

How can I be more innovate and interesting with my spanking scenes?

Mailbag Question #1:

I’ve recently been kicked out of my mom’s house and I’m now living at my dad’s.

Financially I think I’ll be okay, but when I opened up to dad about my work—how my drawings can occasionally be NSFW—he got really… defensive? He basically said he doesn’t want it anywhere in the house.

As an artist this is inconvenient, but as a human being it hurts. I wanted to just be honest with him, but he doesn’t know that his backward never-talk-about-sex mindset is just harmful.

I just wish I knew the words to explain why, if he wants to protect his kids (16 and 9), my siblings, he needs to be open and teach them about consent—not just to be afraid of sexuality, which they’ll just need therapy for later in life.

Thoughts?

Mailbag Question #2:

To be blunt, how do you swing, go to play parties, etc when your body is malfunctioning? Hemmerhoids, yeast infections, UTIs, the like. Do I just put up a “closed” sign when this, um, crap, happens? Help!

    For the caller asking about being sober at Desire: I was sober at Desire last year and would be happy to share my experience with them. If they left you contact information, feel free to pass along my e-mail address to them. –Freed
