Why Are People Into That?!

Nea Ching Live at Junior High (2021 Summer flashback!)

"Why Are People Into That?: A Cultural Investigation of Kink" THE BOOK IS OUT TODAY June 4th, 2024. Happy birthday baby!


The episode you’re listening to now was recorded in July of 2021 at Junior High gallery in Los Angeles. It was one of the first in-person events I did after getting vaccinated. I’ve been sitting on this footage and other footage from the other live shows I’ve done over the past few years because I was honestly waiting for a special occasion. I don't think anything more special than the book release is likely to happen any time soon, so here it is! 


Friend of the pod and returning guest Nea Ching aka "The Gay Chingy" is so fucking funny, at one point she literally says, "I’m a hole not an engineer!" This episode was actually really a treat for me to return to and edit. The audience was super cute as my audiences tend to be. I hope you laugh and get turned on listening as much as I did making it. We talk about how fucking machines are objects that objectify you, about breeding with ovipositor dildos, about artisinal poppers that make you feel the way you do when you have a really big crush on someone, and how during the pandemic we missed strangers spitting in our mouths. 


Real quick I just want to tell you that if listening to this makes you wish you could attend YAPIT live, you’re gonna wanna come back to the Junior High gallery on June 11th for a cabaret celebration of the book release with wine and sweets and schmoozing… and burlesque and drag performance curated by my very talented friend Spike Prince of Cats.

  • YAPIT Book Preview!

    Welcome back to the first new feed drop in three years. I appreciate that you’re still subscribed, and I hope this was a nice treat in your podcast updates today. People tell me all the time they still listen to back episodes. I’m so grateful for that, and for all the listener support over the years. The major reason I haven’t been actively doing the show is that I got a major book deal to write Why Are People Into That A Cultural Investigation of Kink. It’s been a long process – sometimes arduous, sometimes glorious, and now the book is about to be unleashed upon the world, that’s you! That pub day is June 4th, 2024. Why Are People Into That A Cultural Investigation of Kink isn’t an adaptation or like novelization of the pod so much as a book based on the same premise that this podcast is based on: a queer as fuck, whore-centric, slut positive, pervert celebrating deep dives into fetish sex. Which is to say, if you’ve enjoyed listening, you’re gonna enjoy reading. And You, dear listener, can get yourself a hardcover copy wherever books are sold (I recommend your local indie shop, but yes it’s available through the behemoths too). You can get an ebook wherever digital books are sold, or the audiobook, read by me.And speaking of the audiobook, the reason for this feed drop is not exactly a new episode, but a preview of the audiobook to thank you for being a loyal podcast subscriber. Specifically it’s Chapter 4 which is all about Fisting… shockingly a topic I’ve never featured on the show despite it being one of my favorite things to do and talk about. This chapter discusses lube, g spots, p spots, Gayle Rubin’s Catacombs A Temple of the Butthole, Adam Zmith’s book on poppers Deep Sniff, Bini Adamczak's On Circlusion translated by Sophie Lewis, Mira Bellweather’s zine Fucking Trans Women, some personal fisting stories, and much much more. Preorders are important! If you’re listening to this before June 4th, it would mean so much to me and the countercultures celebrated in this book if you would preorder in any format from any retailer. And I’m offering a special incentive for people who preorder. All you have to do is go to the link in my Instagram bio and upload your proof of preorder purchase to access another special episode of the podcast, this one with an actual special mystery guest! It’s more intimate than any episode I’ve done before and you can ONLY hear it if you preorder the book. If you’ve missed that, you can still buy the book wherever books are sold, and that really means a lot to me too. So now… get engorged. Do your carpal tunnel stretches. And I hope you enjoy this preview of Why Are People Into That A Cultural Investigation of Kink. I hope you grab a copy, I hope to see you on book tour. Here we go…

    01:23:33

Their media work includes Mercy Mistress, a web pilot, and Fly in Power, a short documentary.

With contributions by leading voices in the movement such as Melissa Gira Grant, Ceyenne Doroshow, Audacia Ray, femi babylon, April Flores, and Yin Q, this anthology explores sex work as work, and sex workers as laboring subjects in need of respect—not rescue.A portion of this book's net proceeds will be donated to SWOP Behind Bars (SBB).
