If there is anyone who embodies a plethora of kinktastic knowledge, it’s my co-host, Sunny Megatron. She’s a fountain of knowledge on everything from clown kink to humiliation play and has shaped many a psychotherapist into being kink-aware through her classes. In this episode, we chat about how Sunny originally got into kink, how she customizes her kink for her own needs, and how she has taught others how to shape their kink into their own tailor-made version of perverted fun. Sunny explains how she negotiates, takes her sub on a kinky roller coaster ride followed by rolling back into the station with after care specifically designed for them. Furthermore, Sunny describes both the potential emotional and somatic benefits of kink along with how it may impact us neurologically while always stressing that although kink can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Please join us for this amazing episode of Open Deeply in which we all learn that BDSM is way more delightful fun than just ropes, paddles and floggers. Sunny's bio related to kink: Sunny began teaching about BDSM in 2010. Her area of expertise is the soft skills--which center around things like ethics, cultivating self-awareness, and strategies for effective communication. She received a FROST Certificate of Gratitude in 2020 honoring her service to the kink community, was voted XBIZ sexpert of the year in 2021, and Kinkly’s sex blogging superhero in 2017. Her alternative sexuality focused podcast American Sex was awarded the AASECT podcast award in 2020. Sunny also creates curriculum about BDSM for sexuality professionals. Some of her most recent projects include designing & teaching the BDSM unit for a well-known sex educator certification program plus a lesson for the Sexual Health Alliance’s Kink Informed Certification Program for therapists and other care professionals. Sunny’s first book, Customizable Kink: A Strategic Guide to Erotic Play is scheduled to be released in 2022.

Lenora Claire, the Erin Brovovich of stalking, joins us for her second powerful episode. So often our society misunderstands stalking to the extent that it’s often a theme in comedians’ standup. And yet, real life stalkers are frequently terrifying, dangerous and nothing to joke about. And with a justice system that does just short of nothing to help survivors, we need a bright light of hope. And that’s where Lenora Claire comes in as our bright light in a sea of darkness. In this episode, she discusses how you can reduce your risk of having a stalker, best steps to take directly after being sexually assaulted, along with legal changes she is attempting to push through our justice system, such as her app concept with geofencing that would allow survivors to track their stalker. Finally, she tells us about Lenora Claire LLC, her company designed to consult with the entertainment industry, specifically on True Crime shows, so their treatment of survivors is ethical and kind while working with them. Please join us for this episode of Open Deeply that proves that super heroines are real. Lenora Claire is a survivor of multiple violent crimes, a member of the Los Angeles District Attorney Crime Victims Advisory Board, the CEO of Lenora Claire Consulting LLC, as well as an entertainment industry professional. After becoming the fixation of a dangerous stalker, Lenora began to speak out not only for herself but for the other 7.5 million Americans currently being stalked who find themselves without resources and living in fear. Lenora’s case has been featured on 48 Hours, Dr. Oz, Crime Watch Daily, CBS News and other media outlets. Named “The Erin Brockovich of Stalking” by Vice, Lenora has helped countless people obtain restraining orders. She has served as a human shield in court and lectured on the subject of risk minimization at schools, on television and on podcasts. With fellow advocate, Jess Gilbert, they formed The Innovative Justice Alliance to propose legislation and develop methods of prevention in the technology space.

Andrew also drives home the power of using humor to reach people who would otherwise be too intimidated to learn about disability. Using such terms as “bear in a chair” and “queer cripple”, Andrew says that he makes discussing disability less scary for both himself and others. And Andrew isn’t shy about discussing sex. He unpacks both his exciting and traumatizing emotional experiences related to accessing sex as a disabled person, describing why these experiences have led him to having a more tantric mindset regarding sex. Please join us for another episode of Open Deeply as we learn how to break down ableism, face our fears about disability, and laugh with Andrew as we do it.

So of course, he’s been featured or interviewed worldwide in popular media, such as the BBC, Huffington Post, and Out.com, several anthologies and many podcasts, such as Dan Savage’s “Savage Lovecast” discussing what is means to be, (quote), a queer cripple (unquote). He was the subject of an award winning National Film Board in the Canadadian Documentary “Picture This”. He is also the host of Disability After Dark: The Podcast Shining a Bright Light on Disability Stories which was nominated for a Canadian Podcast Award, a Queerty Award and was chosen as an Honoree at the 2020 Webby Awards.

In the second story, he recounts the first time he had sex as a queer and disabled young man in college with such transparency and vulnerability that we feel everything right there with him; the excitement, the struggle, and the pain.

Dr. Kim TallBear, Professor of Native Studies, author, and regular international media commentor on issues related to Indigenous peoples, science, sexualities, and non-monogamy weaves wisdom throughout her amazing life story on this episode of Open Deeply. As a small child, Kim knew she was a queen, but the intergenerational impact of settler colonization created many hurdles for herself and her Dakota indigenous relatives. Poverty, sexual abuse, and chaos all impacted her childhood as is tragically the case for so many North American Indigenous children. However, she funneled her consequent anger to break free, creating a new reality for herself. This anger got her out into the world making her both politically and intellectually oppositional. Concurrent with her activism, she experienced non-monogamy for the first time in college, finding it very comfortable, but knowing the world would not approve. Flash forward to now, Kim is a leading intellectual on the topics of non-monogamy, Native Studies, and how these topics intersect. Her passionate explanation regarding why polyamorists, especially relationship anarchists, are allies for indigenous people, as they push back against settler colonial social norms, is profoundly mind expanding and needed. And there is so much more to this amazing episode. So, we hope you will join us for another riveting episode of Open Deeply.

Professional international opera singer, Babatunde Akinboboye, otherwise known as the HipHopera Guy, joins us again for a deeper exploration of his life journey told in the previous episode. We explore the generational shifts between himself and his father regarding masculinity and how these differing embodiments of manhood effect psychological health and love. And while Babatunde discusses his mother’s jarring immigration from Nigeria to the U.S. and the consequent plummet in the cultural respect given to her, he envisions a human race that is more stable and nurtured if we gave Black women, with their unrivaled deep warmth, the respect they deserve. Other topics discussed include his deep belief in getting mental health care, crying if you need to, and fighting injustice where you find it. And finally, he tells us about his bold vision for the future of opera including hiphopera. Please join us for another fascinating and informative episode of Open Deeply. About Babatunde Akinboboye: Nigerian American Baritone, Babatunde Akinboboye, also known as the HipHopera Guy, is recognized for combining his operatic training with his love of hip hop and trap beats to create a new genre of music that he refers to as HipHopera.

Babatunde Akinboboye, the HipHopera Guy, joins us in an eye opening episode of Open Deeply. While Babatunde weaves operatic excellence seamlessly with hiphop and trap beats, you can see that he brims over with next level passion and joy. You would never suspect the intense struggle that he has overcome across his life. While his early childhood was filled with love and cuddles, it brutally shifted to one of physical abuse, a struggle with undiagnosed ADHD while feeling lost, depressed and lonely. But soon, Babatunde was kidnapped out of this emotionally unbearable situation by a benevolent family intervention leading to new opportunities, especially in music. However, the struggle didn’t end there. Once in the U.S., he contended with racism and the experience of being othered, not just in school, but later from the international opera establishment despite its self-assessment of being evolved and civilized. Clearly, not so much. But neither struggle nor obstacle has ever blocked Babatunde for long. Eventually, he, along with the Black Opera Alliance, stood up against the old school opera establishment and he broke free from their stagnant rules when he launched his hiphopera style which has been embraced by ever growing fan base and the media.

Jimanekia Eborn, trauma specialist and founder of Tending the Garden, joins us again to process her life story from the previous episode. After witnessing her mother’s murder at age one, Jimanekia’s inner child has had a lot of healing to do. But she candidly tells us that self-healing has not always been on the forefront of her mind. In her early years, many times, she admits to going off course down roads that led to more trauma for herself. Other times, through her work in the mental health industry, she has put another survivor’s healing before her own. Regardless, she explains that she has always had the instinct to “make her mommy proud” and so both her self-healing and her vision for helping others has persevered. In this episode, we talk about everything from her unexpected connection to pro wrestling, her philosophy on the importance of positive destruction along with her desire to “fuck up and rebuild the sex ed community”, a rally cry that all three of us can get behind for the good of humankind. Finally, she fleshes out her vision for the future that includes continuing her crucial life’s work with Tending the Garden. Please join us for another captivating episode of Open Deeply. About guest, Jimanekia Eborn: Jimanekia Eborn is a Queer Media Consultant, Comprehensive Sex Educator, and Sexual Assault & Trauma Expert. With a Masters in Health Psychology, she has worked in mental health for the past 13 years in sex education and sexual trauma support. Jimanekia is the host of Trauma Queen - a podcast mini-series for survivors of assault and our allies, and the Founder of Tending the Garden, a healing retreat for survivors of assault of different marginalized identities. In 2020, Jimanekia co-founded Centaury Co., bringing increased representation to the field of Intimacy Coordination in the film industry.

Jimanekia Eborn, who refers to herself as a “child of trauma”, takes us on her powerful life journey from witnessing her mother being brutally murdered at the age of one to becoming an inspiring expert in the areas of sexual trauma support and sex education with a special love for helping those with marginalized identities. Her childhood included many struggles related to class, race, and bodily autonomy. By age twelve, she had already learned that Black bodies are commodified which contributed to her difficulties with internalized body shame and her choice to keep her sexual awakening very private. Despite never being kissed until age seventeen, college was a game changer. Here, she discovered the “power of her pussy”. She organically found non-monogamy and even experienced her first play party. After college, Jimanekia traversed the mental health field, finally finding her soul’s love while holding space for sexual abuse survivors, helping them heal while concurrently educating on healthy, shame free sex.

Destin Gerek, once the Erotic Rockstar and now founder of the Evolved Masculine, is a globally recognized leading voice in masculinity, sexuality, and personal empowerment, but he didn’t start there. He was profoundly changed after witnessing the pain of his high school girlfriend who is a rape survivor. His deep empathy for her led him to question our concept of masculinity and masculinity within himself for years. Later, he became a victim of police brutality causing him to fall into an existential questioning of humanity. But life has never let Destin retreat for long. Fate led him to Mexico, where he initially hung with a group of Mexican Zapatista revolutionaries, but finally found a spiritual group rooted in a Toltec philosophy. It was these visionary thinkers that shifted his life trajectory and world view. His next phase included traveling the world, experiencing many incarnations, and an epic sexual odyssey. Finally, he morphed into the man he is today, directly supporting thousands of men to have better sex, deeper connections to their masculine power, women, and themselves.

After Sunny’s, Siri’s, and Kate’s bios all had themes of emotional over giving, we decided to devote episode seven solely to unpacking what over giving is, why we do it, and how to heal. A long overdue spotlight is shone on how our patriarchal culture fiercely gas lights over givers, who are predominately women, and why. The over giver/over taker relationship dynamic in the U.S. is rampant in both monogamous and non-monogamous relationships. The reasons for it are not just psychological, but most definitely cultural as well. And it’s as American as guns and porn. Note: The term over-giver is used instead of co-dependent, because many people do not identify with everything that is associated with co-dependency. Overgiving can be defined as emotionally over-extending yourself and sacrificing your own boundaries to please the over-taker in your life. So please join us for another episode of Open Deeply as we dive into hearts and minds of over givers and culture that shapes them.
