The Gentle Dommecast Episode 13: Taboos, Kink Shaming and Generalizations about Gentle Femdom

I FINALLY wrangled The Rough Subbe into making another podcast with me, only under threat that he was going to be replaced with another sidekick. (Because people are beating down my door for the job.)

I might call this less of an episode and more of a tirade after seeing some major generalizations in one of my favorite kink forums about gentle femdom, feminization and age play. So, this entire podcast is a rebuttal against those generalizations. I’m probably going to piss some people off, but when DON’T I do that?

In other news, I got my first troll! However, since I lock down comments, it’s not really that useful to leave me hateful statements about how kink is actually abuse. But I feel like you’re not really a blogger until you get a troll. So, have I arrived?

Also, I’d like to mention that nothing I say is gospel. Kink has lots of gray areas, and I’m simply sharing my feelings here. So, while I feel pretty comfortable about the feelings I’ve expressed, those feelings could change over time or with new information.

  1. Thanks for the pod. It’s obviously hard for people to talk about kinks they’re not into because people have such a hard time switching points of view. Listening to the part about sissies being stereotyped as bisexual, I’m always having to raise my hand and say hey, I like women’s clothes, I’m submissive, I’m not into men. For some reason people like me are always stereotyped that way, perhaps I’m in a minority.

    I just read “This book is gay” by James Dawson, which is a decent primer on sex and gender, but he also misses the mark on a similar point. He states that gendered clothing is cultural and doesn’t matter, and I counter as someone who is a transvestite that that is entirely the point of crossdressing, to be in a different state precisely because the clothing is taboo and/or gendered differently.

    I appreciate what you’re doing, you’re a great speaker and I enjoy your work – keep it up!

    1. I’m glad you are enjoying it! Thank you. I do think there is generally a difference between being into crossdressing and being a “sissy.” I mean, words are simply words. You can define yourself however you like. Almost all of the sissies I’ve talked to enjoy some element of “forced” or just encouraged bisexuality. But that isn’t to say that you can think of yourself that way and not be bisexual. In all honesty, while I do humiliation play regarding “forced” bi, I don’t find anything humiliating about being gay, bisexual or liking to wear “feminine” clothing IRL.
