Episode 130 – Beyond Consent

In this episode, we tackle a very serious topic.  Domestic violence and abuse are not easy subjects.  In vanilla relationships, they are difficult to recognize when they are happening to you. It’s even harder when done in the context of power exchange, dom/sub, or BDSM.

Pup Nitro joins us to talk about this sensitive and very important topic.

If you are or think you might be in an abusive relationship, please seek help from trusted friends, family, or professionals. The National Domestic Violence Hotline is available to help or point you in the right direction.
