Fetishes and Disorders

Today’s episode, “Fetishes and Disorders” is on Apple Podcasts, SpotifyOvercast, Libsyn, Pocket CastStitcher, iHeartRadio, or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

Today’s episode comes straight up with NSFW, NSF kids, and sexual trigger warnings. The first 31 minutes of the episode are a discussion of unusual sexual fetishes. While we don’t go into graphic details, the mention of certain acts, and also specific bodily functions (such as throwing up), could be triggers so, you’ve been warned! Maybe don’t eat before hand. We’re just sayin’.

On the plus side, there are some fetishes out there we’d never heard of so this episode was a real learning experience for us both! And as we say at the beginning, we do not discuss these topics to demean, have a laugh at, or degrade anyone who has any of these fetishes, however we do have honest reactions to the different examples. While they are not our cup of tea, that doesn’t mean they aren’t fine for others. Like we say, as long as someone is not doing harm to themselves or others and everyone involved is consenting, YOU DO YOU BOO!

If you feel like you’d rather skip that part of the show, go ahead and fast forward to the 31 minute mark where we wrap up the fetish talk and begin discussing some really fascinating psychological disorders. It’s really not that bad, honestly, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t give you the heads up.

To say the least, we ended up walking away from this recording absolutely amazed at the power of the human brain.

And you know, being us, and this episode being full of big words, we mispronounce most of the names of both fetishes and disorders all over the place. Just beginning to end it’s an exercise in futility for both of us trying to spit out the big ol’ wordy stuff. It’s what we do.

So there you have it. Small proof the human brain is wild, wonderful, eerie, enigmatic and powerful.

Episodes

Let it Go

Today’s “Let It Go” episode is on  iTunes/Apple Podcasts, SpotifyOvercast, Libsyn, Pocket CastStitcher or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

We riff off our That’s Purgetastic! episode talking a bit more about shedding material baggage, and then going beyond the physical purge by exploring how to let go of past hurts, unhealthy belief systems, love relationships, and expectations of what we think “should be.”

Kym shares her personal experiences of forgiveness involving her ill father. Kris reveals the painful process of having a parent afflicted with Alzheimer’s as well as how she has navigated the devastation of letting go a significant relationship. It gets a little deep for The Mugly Truth, but that’s ok.

Even though discarding a pair of too-high heels is not the same as letting go the dream of a future with someone, or the pain of a neglected childhood (oooorrrrrr, is it?? Some people are very attached to their shoes coffcoffsexinthecitycoff), the process is actually pretty much the same. It’s about being (sometimes brutally) honest with ourselves and asking how what is being held onto is serving us – is it for good or for bad (because something negative can serve us). Is it something we can let go of now or is it something we are willing to move toward letting go? How long are we willing to traverse the path to freedom? Are we ok with feeling some deep feelings, knowing at the end of the day (or year or five) It’s technically as simple as making a pros and cons list and examining the truth. Except that examining painful truths is not a simple thing. So there’s the element of courage as well. But no pressure.

As a way to help you get started on the “let it go” journey, here’s a link to the Tiny Buddha article called 40 Ways to Leg Go and Feel Less Pain (and be sure to look for that pesky breathing practice Kris couldn’t pronounce: ujayii.)
