Content Warning: Discussion of trauma, child abuse, BDSM and kink culture, pornography, and domestic violence

In this episode, Alayna and Mel are joined by a friend of the podcast who is an active member of the BDSM lifestyle. She discusses her personal journey learning and joining the BDSM community as a survivor of trauma. The discussion covers why BDSM can be healthy, why communication and consent is important, and how pop culture's portrayal is not an accurate depiction. 

This episode is Part One of a two part discussion with our special guest. So please join us for our next episode where we finish this conversation.
