Summary

Please note: This audio features graphic content, adult language, and references to sexual assault that may be upsetting to some listeners. Discretion is advised.

Kink is moving into the mainstream, and it’s time we started talking about it.

From a dominant’s dungeon to a London fetish club, sex expert Alix Fox explores some of the kinky places many of us never get to visit, and dives deep into some of our most private fantasies.

She examines kinky sex from all the angles - personal, political, psychological, physiological, historical, and more - to try and help us understand our desires and those of the people around us.

Each episode explores kink from a different era, including contemporary stories and expert voices. How common is kink? Why do we like it? Where does shame come from? Is it healthy? And, what are its politics?

very very interesting

It is just a lot lot more than kink and erotica. In fact it's more about the mechanics behind kink than the kinky bits themselves. Very informative and very very interesting.

Interesting and engaging.

Enjoyed listening to this series. More in depth than most shows on the radio or TV go. Takes a light hearted look at so called kinks and fetishes at the same time as managing to deal with the questions and answers in a mature way. A few interviews and case studies help give you an insight into the scene. Would like to have heard more.

Very insightful

Very informative and insightful. Well balanced between fun and serious. A good way to find out about 'the scene' without having to actually take part.

Seems very naive, shallow and even biased at times

Really enjoyed hearing from the interviewees and the historical explorations of kink were for me the most fascinating parts.

Sadly the series devolved into that eye rolling/stereotypically naive, left leaning modern feminist point of view in which everything is the result of societal conditioning - absolutely no mention of the enormous power of hormones, nature and as expected threw Freud under the bus... there was also a lot of self contradiction and strategic bullet dodging particularly in episodes 5 and 6. I didn't feel like they really wrestled with consent and the link between sex, violence and pleasure in a way that wasn't incredibly immature and infantilising like those cringe inducing consent workshops and the type of "consent form" nonsense you here on college campuses. It gets a bit heavy handed with the ideological feminist interpretation of society still being a "patriarchy" if it ever was, which is just absurd. Makes me question whether the historical education or the scientists were legit or not. Still a good listen even if you disagree I guess. Petty it wasn't longer.

Adults only

An insight into something many of us would hide from but secretly love to try. Yes it is basic in some ways, crude but very interesting for any normal adult.

Enlightening

This was a truly fantastic listen, which offered lots of new ideas, and fixed certain stereotypes and I will be trying some things out later.

Very educational and enticing!

Great and easy listening that evoked some interest. Learned a lot more about Kink including the fascinating history of our not so prudish ancestors. Overall very interesting indeed.

Very informative

Very informative and eye opening and raises many points which I personally never thought of. it's good to hear how link is becoming more of a mainstream thing.
