Welcome to the first episode of the Lemurian Hour, with our first guest Peter Tupper! I’m excited about doing a podcast again. It’s been too long. My plan is to release these weekly. Some will contain long-form interviews, like this one. Others will will contain shorter interviews, along with regular feature, such as current events with Ben Robinson, and Cinematic Pig’s Feet with Katalin Justice. There will be more regular features coming later, so stay tuned for that.
Our guest this week is noted BDSM expert and author, Peter Tupper. He has written extensively, both fiction and non-fiction. We talked about his latest project, a history of consensual BDSM, and the public’s current fascination with the subject, including the controversial ‘50 Shades‘ phenomenon, and we discuss some of the notable BDSM relationships in history, such as that between Hannah Cullwick and Authur Munby. Peter is by no means the on researcher on this subject. We also touch on the work of Mr. Raven Kaldera (I apologize for misgendering Mr. Kaldera in the podcast. Definitely a he.) We also discuss how people into BDSM can survive in these times.
I’ll be the first to admit that this interview is a little bit rust, at least on my end. Peter Tupper was fine, but it has been a while since I have been behind a microphone, and it shows, both in performance and in technical quality. However, I think this is a pretty good episode, and the rest will be even better. If you’d like to help out, please consider leaving me a good review on iTunes, and supporting me on Patreon.
