This is a special double-episode : Pre and Post Stoya-in-Helsinki edition.
Up first : Stoya & Mitcz discuss the recent Alamo Drafthouse Wonder Woman screening controversy, lending itself to a brief discussion of masculinity and Bromance (which is officially a scholarly term, we found out). From there, we discuss the two-part T*ts and Sass articles about Hot Girls Wanted, and what they explain about the adult industry – including what Rashida Jones truly think of sex workers (in her own words).
We also discuss a fascinating, yet largely forgotten, bit of history when women used hatpins for self defense and the controversy and legal battles that ensued. To round out part 1, we end on a discussion that was touched upon in our Buck Angel episode : women being the sexual pursuer, how Stoya navigates the dating/sex playing field, and how Mitcz does so from the other side of the aisle, while finishing on some discussions about catfishing and online roleplaying.
In part 2, we discuss Stoya’s fun adventures at Wonderlust in Helsinki — including hug procedures, Stoya gets into some rough BDSM spank play, and how Serbia is treating her. There’s a lot of smaller topics and tangents both parties get into and Stoya tells a fascinating story about her layover in Berlin. We round out part 2 with a discussion of power dynamics in relationships based on role, job, age, and more.
Lastly, our first round of “Stoya Guess Pop Culture”. There’s something for everyone! (hopefully?) in this episode.
