Music for Monday - Dead Can Dance

Some of our favorite music for lovemaking and BDSM scenes is performed by Dead Can Dance . . .

Dead Can Dance is an interesting group, their music is very eclectic, often ethereal, and always entertaining.  The band is made up of Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, with a rotating cast of supporting musicians accompanying the core duo.  We've written and shared Dead Can Dance music on two prior occasions - free music for your BDSM scenes and a gift of scene music.

The attached YouTube video is from the Toward The Within, a film made about the band that is mostly a live performance, with a few interviews.  
Skip ahead in the video to the 22 minute and 40 second mark to get a good idea of what Serafina and I enjoy for BDSM playtime music.  Another tune that illustrates what I love best about the band starts 38 minutes and 20 seconds into the video, and a third great example starts at 43 minutes and 40 seconds.

The sounds and instruments are exotic, the rhythmic percussion becomes infectious, they build to a frenetic pace that's perfect (in my opinion) to accompany a peak flogging or other intense sexual moment.

Serafina absolutely loves Brendan Perry's voice, she says it's rich resonance reminds her of my singing voice.  Who am I to argue?  I take it as a great compliment  I mean, at one point in life my coworkers called me the "singing chef" - and Perry is absolutely glorious to sing along with as I drive . . .

I think Lisa Gerrard's voice is just as entrancing.  Her unaccompanied voice singing "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" is prone to bringing a tear the wizened old eyes of a dom I know very well, admittedly the song's topic has something to do with that.

The fairly brief movie gives and idea of breadth and range of music produced by Dead Can Dance, but it misses many of our personal favorites, there's much more to explore . . .

Drooling!!! (keeping her quiet pt. 7)

Slippery When Wet - Gags & Drooling

Welcome to an ongoing discussion of gags and gagging in the world of BDSM.  Today, I'll be featuring an inevitable consequence of being gagged, as well as the fetish some have for this special aspect of keeping her quiet.

And, it should be said that today's post is a very slippery topic.  It could even be said that it's discussion occurs on a slippery slope, as folks tend to either love or hate the fact that gags can cause uncontrollable drooling.

Duct Tape Gags (keeping her quiet pt. 1)

An essential part of any abduction or damsel in distress scenario, nothing screams enforced submission better than the image of a submissive who has been bound and gagged.  Welcome to the first installment of "keeping her quiet", an ongoing discussion about gags and gagging in BDSM.

I'd first like to note, for you my dear reader, that the title "keeping her quiet" is not intended to be sexist in any way.  Please understand that any observations or advice I give are almost always equally applicable to gags used upon a male submissive.  My choice of a female pronoun is not intended to imply that female submissives, nor women in general, should be gagged or stifled from expressing themselves.  This is about the use of gags for BDSM scenes, not life in general.

The articles on gags are intended to be pansexual.  My original working title for this series of postings was actually "keeping them quiet".  While that's a more politically correct title, and…
