Bawdy Storytelling

My God, that Leatherman is so hot - but why is he limping? In this vintage 70’s story, Leather & Kink Legend Race Bannon take you on a private tour of his first Gay Bathhouse, and this story is a doozy! Join us as we venture into Man’s Country, a private membership gay men’s club featuring 3 stories of wild adventure, including a theater, gym, restaurant, dance hall, sex shop, an orgy room, lockers, private suites for on-premises sex, and of course, its famous whirlpool and baths. In this story, 19 year old Race meets an muscular, smooth older man in leather vest and chaps and soon they’re playing alone, surrounded by toys, gear and restraints. Leather & Kink dynamics are important - and yet sometimes, “the fucking is the thing,” isn’t it? #TrimYourToenails #TalentedHole


Song: ‘I wanna be your Slave’ (Maneskin)

I am considering ending the Bawdy podcast at 300 episodes. Is this thing on?

Do you love Bawdy? I need to hear from you, as this decision will affect both of us. Podcasting is a lot of work, and I’m wondering if I should put my energy to use in some other way (and going out of pocket isn’t feasible anymore)

If you want to ensure this podcast continues, Please make a one-time Donation to keep us going!

Join Bawdy’s Patreon now to get exclusive Patreon-only rewards (and my eternal gratitude). Podcasting has been decimated by high profile celebrity podcasts, and Independent podcast like Bawdy are suffering…The Golden Age of Podcasting is over, so if you love the Bawdy podcast, remember: this thing is entirely Listener Supported, and we need your financial assistance to continue.

Bawdy Got Me Laid perfume: Dixie has created her own fragrance and it’s getting rave reviews!

Here’s one: “Okay hear me out, THIS PERFUME IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I will probably never buy perfume from another shop. That’s how good these are. #bawdygotmelaid is so sexy, so sweet, so delicious. The Amber and ylang ylang is what sold me, and it did not disappoint!” - Carlie

You’ll love #BawdyGotMeLaid, scented with golden Honey, Amber, Ylang Ylang, and warm Vanilla. There’s also our creamy Bawdy Butter, Hair & Bawdy Oil, & more. Bawdy Got Me Laid cologne - in a beautiful bottle, or a convenient roll-on applicator - means you can deliver your own great smelling Motorboats while supporting Bawdy.
