BDSM...It was around before Christian Grey you know.
As long humans have existed, there have been kinky humans in the bedroom, enjoying erotic play featuring whips, corporal punishment, humiliation and more.
Kate is joined Betwixt the Sheets by three special guests - a sadomasochistic historian, Peter Tupper, who tells us the origins of BDSM, and a professional dominatrix, Miss May, and her sub and boyfriend - Frankie, who give us an insight into their relationship and the scene today.
Produced by Charlotte Long. Mixed by Seyi Adaobi. Special thanks to Lucy Davidson.
Betwixt the Sheets: The History of Sex, Scandal & Society. A podcast by History Hit. This episode includes music by Epidemic Sound, and an archive clip from a public 1950s sex education film.
