On this episode of Dark Voices, we kick off our series on Greater Magic. I spoke again with Gyps Fulvus regarding his experiences with Greater Magic. We discuss the specifics of ritual as well as philosophy behind ritual. Gyps shares tales of his successes and failures with Greater Magic, and we discuss the whys and wherefores of the psychodrama that is Greater Magic (including Gyps's use of masks). It was a pleasure speaking with Gyps again and this is certainly one episode not to be missed!
In this episode of Dark Voices, I speak with David Padgett; a long time member of the Church of Satan and someone who is heavily involved in the BDSM scene. Ever wondered what a 24/7 Master/slave relationship is like? Or how the dynamics and practicalities of such a relationship can exist? We discuss all those details and more. We talk about the use of lesser and Greater magic and its application in finding play partners and performing scenes. We also have a conversation about our thoughts behind the philosophy laid out in "The Satanic Bible" regarding kink and sexual freedom. It's an exciting and sexy conversation that shouldn't be missed!
Please note that, in this episode, we use a lot of BDSM "scene" related terms and do not define them. So, if you haven't listened to the BDSM 101 episode yet, go back and listen to it before you jump into this one.
This episode comes in two formats: the regular podcast format, which is available in all the usual places (headphones are recommended for the podcast version due to production quality) as well as a video. The video extends the interview a bit longer and includes some things that aren't in the podcast such as show and tell portions where David demonstrates and explains different toys, their uses, and effects on the body.
This episode, we conclude our series on The Satanic Witch with Magister Bill M. This was a GREAT interview! I thoroughly enjoyed conducting it and Bill's answers were fantastic. We break down The LaVey Personality Synthesizer Clock for those that may be struggling with it in a way they may understand. We discuss the three layers of personality and what they mean in the bigger picture. We talk about the chapter "E.S.P. Extra Sensory Perception" some more to get the male perspective on some of the concepts presented within that chapter. In addition, Bill talks about his time as a professional tarot card reader, grooming for men, and his many talents as a musician and how he has applied those techniques as a warlock. If you've been waiting for some male perspective on the book or someone to explain some of the heavier/confusing topics in the book, this is your episode! If for nothing else, Bill M. is a great interviewee and a lot of fun to listen to. Don't miss out!
