https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 62.32Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with Oasis Aqualounge Co-Owner Fatima Mechtab about the sex club, the events she runs and markets there, and the porn she’s begun to produce out of the club. We get into the details about sex club events, the Projekt Panties (as seen on Instagram), and how the Oasis porn is different from mainstream pornography. Fatima takes us through some of the history of Oasis Aqualounge, the only water-based (I’d call it a spa) sex club in Toronto, and in fact, really the only sex club in downtown Toronto. Oasis will soon turn 10 years old, and Fatima has been with the club almost since its inception, first as a marketing director, and now also as co-owner. She has helped produce sexy events like mega parties, suits and nudes, masquerade, sapphic aquatica, swordplay, and money shot—featuring sex educators, workshops, demos, and live porn shoots. Fatima aims to create organic pornography with diverse bodies in semi-scripted situations, shot live in front of Oasis guests, and distributed in the club and on PornHub for free. Fact Checks: 6:57 – Licensing and Permits for Adult Entertainment Clubs in Toronto. 41:51 –Definition of Vaginismus. 52:34 – Avant-Garde Porn “I love you” by Brooke Candy. REMINDER: Intellectual Erection will be back at Oasis Aqualonge this Wednesday April 24th selling the new and used Projekt Panties as seen on Instagram.

https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 52.48Mb)

Description: On this episode, I speak with Professor Lewis…again! We pick up where we left off last time, discussing the intricacies of polyamorous relationships and now diving deeper into the meanings of love, sex, passion, commitment, novelty, excitement, and how these interplay with one’s identity. Lewis is back at it again with the same professorial charm and wit that you enjoyed on his first episode, this time candidly sharing his deepest experiences of sex and pleasure, and how these are informed by his navigation of polyamory and kink. We discuss definitions of sex, love, the body, pleasure, freedom, and novelty, and how these interplay with social media, identity, commitment, and polyamory. Lewis provides a well-ruminated account of his sexual and emotional experiences that have shaped his identity, led him to better understand his body, helped negotiate his role in relationships, and made him recognize his needs and fantasies. Armed with an approachable academic allure, Lewis stimulates the intellectual in our erection and gives us plenty food for thought. REMINDER: This Saturday, April 20th and Wednesday, April 24th Intellectual erection will be at Oasis Aqualounge selling the used and new Projekt Panties as seen on Instagram!

https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 79.85Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with escort extraordinaire Zoey Belle—your full-service, full-throttle, and full-of-knowledge sex worker! From masturbating since 3 years old, to Masters Graduate, Zoey takes us through the wringer with facts about escorting, its intersections with neoliberalism, and how sex work subverts capitalism. Ms. Belle is handcrafted for sex work, with a passion for sensuality, human touch, and a mastery of squirting—she truly loves her line of work. Having experimented with her body very early, learning about the intricacies of sex, and developing a desire to express her sexual freedom, she decided to enter the escorting industry post-Masters. Armed with experience and academic precision, Zoey unravels the intersections between intimacy, love, sex, market economy, emotional labour, the institution of marriage, and how sex work helps subvert capitalism…but still requires decriminalization! Mark your calendars, because Zoey Belle will be performing a live squirting demo at Oasis Aqualounge on April 20th for the Pantie Parade and Play Party, while wearing a pair of the Intellectual Erection Projekt Panties. We will be selling her very specially soaked pair along with the other used and scented pairs worn by our other models, and we’ll even have brand new pairs for the less devious.

4. Anima Mea Drills Patric
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 63.30Mb)

Description: Ok, this episode is different…because I surrender my seat as host and am interviewed by Anima Mea—a new podcaster to the scene about to launch her very own show…Call me Sentimental—a podcast about modern dating, relationships, love, and taboo subjects. So, I’m her guinea pig and you get to know more about me, your host on Intellectual Erection. Anima uses her interrogation skills to drill me gently on polyamory, consent, love, kinks and fetishes, and sex clubs, all while sprinkling in the magic dust of my cynical pessimism on the meaning of life, suffering, and existentialism. Who knew love and death could be gnarled into the same sentence to give meaning to life in an otherwise bleak world?—This guy, that’s who. Anima is genuinely interested in, and curious about the multifaceted sex-positive communities, how we navigate them, where we enter and exist, and what causes us to do so. She prods sensitive topics with well-placed questions to understand my personal experiences as they intertwine with my access, interest, and interaction with these communities. Anima has an empathetic approach that digs at the emotional, while leaving space for catharsis in talking about things like heartbreak and loneliness, which is what you should expect to hear when her podcast comes out in the next couple of weeks. Her show, Call me Sentimental, will focus on love, relationships, and modern dating, in the first season, followed by taboos and secret societies in the second, so stay tuned!

5. Kingpin Sexorcises Edith's Uterus Demons
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 62.00Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with Kingpin—local Toronto staple, vintage men’s shop owner, ordained priest and exorcist, and overall lovable weirdo here on the show to test out his collection of anti-hysteria devices on our very special returning guest Edith—in hopes of sexorcising her uterus demons. First thing’s first! We get to know a little bit about this mysterious Toronto local, who’s probably been to your party and you didn’t even know it—Kingpin. He’s been running and curating Kingpin’s Hideaway—not your average vintage store, but a gentlemen’s clothing and accoutrement shop. Before all this he was, and still is a Master’s of Divinity Priest at your ready for Weddings and Exorcisms of the wild wild West, steam punk, star wars, furry, or any other orgy of decorated humans subverting the traditional purity-posturing ceremonies. From his dark and devious collection of antiques, Kingpin has meticulously selected an assortment of devices from the anti-hysteria period—basically archaic vibrators used to calm women down in the 19th-20th centuries when it was believed their emotional volatility would dislodge their uterus. So, when doctors got tired of the manual labour, they opted for mechanical assistance to regulate these out-of-control women by bringing them to climax. Enter Edith…our returning special guest and volunteer for a hysterical exorcise in coming to homeostasis. Remember Projekt Panties is underway! Intellectual Erection will be selling the used panties you’ve seen our models wear on Instagram at Oasis Aqualounge for their Panties Parade and Play Party April 20th. Come out and support a good cause—a third of the proceeds will be donated to Maggie’s Toronto (a sex worker’s rights NGO).

6. Misty not your Mistress
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 59.66Mb)

Description: On this episode, I speak Misty, a queer poly unicorn who sprinkles magic from every orifice while navigating around the sex-positive communities, dreaming of horse wangs—not attached to horses—and wanting to be thrown against the walls with hands firmly around her throat (say that 3 times). Misty didn’t have the typical early sexual awakening with odd kinky nuances before puberty that might indicate the future she was about to have. No, Misty didn’t see it coming, but come it did, and she’s been coming ever since with whips and chains and everything in between. She’s a power bottom with an aggressive need to be destroyed…yet, it was through kink that she discovered how to also say no. Misty discusses consent and the importance of taking it seriously despite changing dynamics in a relationship, or changing social climates such as the MeToo movement, which has awakened disturbing realizations for her and altered her ongoing BDSM relationships. Dealing with polyamory, kink, consent, sexual assault, and whatever else life throws at her, Misty opens up before disappearing again into the misty-cal land of the unicorns.

7. Andrea Werhun: Inside a Modern Whore (pt. 2 of 2)
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 48.49Mb)

Description: This is part 2 of the interview with Modern Whore extraordinaire Andrea Werhun (or Verhoon if you nasty!) where we pick up where we left off last time, talking about sex work and the law, decriminalization, personal safety, stripping, and then getting into the stories in her sexy book. Andrea’s been through it all, working with the good the bad and the ugly—facing assault, catcallers, breaches of consent, and having to personally deal with these issues that the law refuses to get involved with. She calls for, like most everyone in the sex worker community, decriminalization of prostitution—not legalization! Sex workers have become good at their profession and do not need legalization to standardize their practices, but do require the law to decriminalize their work, protect them from violence, and provide them safety. Finally, Andrea discusses her book, the stories, the backstories, and future plans for this bubbly, charismatic, and witty writer. We dive into the content of the book, how some of these stories were conceived—like microdosing on LSD—and how they’re meant to enlighten, educate, and reveal that seedy underbelly of society that we all hear only horror stories about.

8. Andrea Werhun: Inside a Modern Whore (pt. 1 of 2)
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 52.51Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with Andrea Werhun, writer of the Modern Whore, a book nearly as difficult to describe in few words as its author—from sassy to sentimental, poetic to smutty, this girl will make you believe in the church of feminine sexuality and having you begging for communion. Andrea opens up about her personal life as a segue to writing the book, having had a shame-free entry into online porn from an early age and discovering her sexuality, to posting nudes online that later haunted her—all of which gave her the courage to own her body and decide without undue duress to enter into sex work, because she wanted to. After visiting her first strip club, Andrea was enamored by the women goddesses owning their bodies on stage, and immediately she knew that’s what she wanted to do. This eventually led her to enter into escorting, which she did for two years and which sets the premise for the book…which we cover in part two of the interview, so stay tuned.

https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 60.06Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with Evguenia from Spirit Sex Lab, a sexual healing, book writing, sex educating, polyamorous, kink and sex party tour guide giving, spiritual healing, and energy orgasm giving bundle of a human. You’ll get an earful of tantric, spiritual, sexiness and more…maybe a transcendental orgasm. Evguenia shares in the Eastern Bloc sex shaming that repressed her many kinks to those unconscious recesses that eventually found a way to express themselves much later in life, into a blossoming polyamorous, spiritual, sex positive, and kinky human. She has since invested in learning the techniques of spiritual healing and combined it with her sex positivity to enhance her sexual experiences to tantric levels, offering her clients those seductive energy orgasms that you can vicariously enjoy on her social media. This is Evguenia’s birthday week, and thus, a great time to promote her book Alice in Polyland—a sexual guidebook, erotica, and visual art piece with professional photos highlighting the art in BDSM, kink, love, and polyamory. So for her birthday, go check out the Kickstarter for the book at the link below, her website with her professional healing services, sex education, and sexual guidance session (including those energy orgasms), and listen to the episode for the sexy details, stories about possible worlds, and transcendental orgasms.

Description: This is part 2 of the interview with Jacqui Childs, we continue from our previous discussion and dive into the darkness of her past (CW: rape, suicidal ideation) where you get to hear the human side of a brand called Jacqui Childs…but what happens when the human side feeds the trolls, the creepers, the fanatics? We talk about the ups and downs of social media, microdosing, and overcoming the past. In part two of the interview we continue where we left off last time, just about to get into Jacqui’s unsettling story of rape and how it affected her trajectory as a person. She then shifts gears to discuss microdosing on mushrooms and cannabis as a therapeutic alternative to antidepressants, and an overall therapy for her Chron’s disease, depression, anxiety, and the residual anger and hate from her past, to the person she is today, having learned empathy, forgiveness, and good sex. Finally, Jacqui talks about what it’s like being a social media influencer and living as a brand, dealing with safety concerns, death threats, and creepy fans who obsess over her in severely unhealthy ways.

13. Cecilia Morrell Makes a Porno
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 53.80Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with Cecilia Morrell, a young and determined woman who embraces sex positivity in so many forms, from doing web camming, modelling, naked news, working at a sex club, and of course, as the title states, doing porn. Cecilia discusses her very early introduction into the sex positive communities, attending Oasis Aqualounge on her 19th birthday to have her first drink at a sex club, which she eventually ended up working at as an Aquaflirt. She discusses the frustrations of coming from a conservative family and small town where anything outside monogamous heteronormativity was not only shamed but often violently assaulted, leading her to embrace her body, sexuality, and sensuality to promote sex positivity for herself and be an example to others who may be feeling marginalized, oppressed, harassed, and invisible. Cecilia’s sex work includes webcam modelling on MyFreeCams and Chaturbate, nude modelling, working on Naked News, and creating pornography with her partner as a duo called The Khaleidos. Ultimately, Cecilia talks about her experiences, her kinks and fetishes, identifying as a Little, embracing her body, and her future plans to help create a charity for people with Autism.

14. Luther on Race Play
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 58.72Mb)

Description: On this episode I speak with Luther, a black man navigating the ups and downs of the sex positive communities with a specific focus on his experiences with race play, the effects it has had on his identity, feelings of self-worth, and notions of being accepted as a person as opposed to a fetish. Luther talks about his introduction to the sex positive communities, having been taken to a swingers resort in Cancun, where his first experiences of being a bull for couples began. He opens up about his darker experiences thereafter where some couples began engaging him in nonconsensual race play, dropping the n-bomb on him during sex, fetishizing and tokenizing him, leaving him feeling ultimately degraded. Luther discusses the complex feelings of being disempowered and used as a dispensable and replaceable fetish object during vulnerable moments of intimacy. He examines how racism has disrupted his sense of identity as a person, and his attempts to regain his identity through interactions with good people, good experiences, and explorations of pleasure in the sex positive communities.

Brett talks frankly about his early sexual experiences, the kinks and fetishes that emerged throughout his budding sexuality, and how those experiences shaped the variety of interests he has pursued. He discusses having been a blunt slut in early adulthood, moving into escorting, smoking fetish, bimbo play, and domination. Then, later on discovering his submissive side through a relationship with a fem domme who introduced him to forced feminization (or sissification), anal play, anal stretching, and fisting. Finally, Brett identifies as a hard switch, willing to dominate or submit so long as the engagement with the person feels authentic and good, allowing him to safely and securely explore his wild and sexy kinks and fetishes.

18. Alice's Rabbit Hole
https://soundcloud.com/intelle... download (audio/mpeg, 72.37Mb)

Description: On this episode Alice takes us down her academic S&M rabbit hole where she discusses her work in women’s studies on the phenomenology of sadomasochism. Through the academic discussion we find incredible humour, playfulness, some seriousness, and even an uncompromising ethics. Alice discusses her academic writing and her thesis that the taboo of sadomasochism derives from the existence of latent sociopolitical power relations that are made visible through the exercise of S&M. She argues that the erotic lies at the core of these unequal power relations because of their danger, thus making them exciting to play out in our sexual fantasies and more so in our sexual lives. She also discusses notions of identity, consent, and polyamory in a very playful and humorous style that lightens up the seriousness of these dense and sensitive topics. Overall, we get a translation of some academic work in women’s studies focusing on S&M from a fun and bubbly human. Support Intellectual Erection at: patreon.com/intellectualerection

Description: On this episode I speak with Pandora, a book keeper and personal trainer who has spent much of her life denying her polyamorous inclinations for the sake of satisfying the norms she grew up with surrounding love, sex, and pleasure. Pandora opens up (punny!), about her experiences having been married and monogamous for most of her life, and having felt that she fundamentally denied her deeper desires to explore her sexuality, sex, pleasure, and the liberty to love multiple people. She examines the norms and pressures that prevented her from seeking multiple romantic relationships, which had for a long time been deeply rooted in her being. She talks about marriage and the performance of the good wife, while putting her own needs on the backburner, which have now become available once again after her divorce, and the challenges she now faces navigating the sex positive communities and poly relationships.

Description: On this episode I speak with Lewis, a fellow academic and professor, who opens up about how he navigates polyamory, kink and bdsm, with some academic nuances. Lewis discusses how he discovered non-monogamy fairly late in his life despite a persisting notion that monogamy never truly captured his way of being, dating back to high school. He dives deeply into his experiences, feelings, and pivotal moments that have shaped the way he now understands relationships, sex, and most of all himself. Lewis also challenges some of the ideas often taken for granted in the sex positive communities and gives us a chance to think about how we engage relationships, and others.

Lilly also describes the intricacies of rope bondage, being submissive, receiving pain, and dealing with the bruises in the aftermath and at work.
