  1. This is Kuldrin’s Krypt season 1 episode 33

If you are new to the show we use our combined 30 years of experience to dispel myths, get rid of stereotypes, and answer your questions about BDSM. You can call in at 865-268-4005 to leave your question or visit the Krypt at kudrinskrypt.com
  3. Rules to Love by:
      1. Safe, sane, consensual, and informed
      2. KNKI: Knowledge, No Intolerence, Kindness, Integrity
      3. “Submission is not about authority and it’s not about obedience; it is all about relationships of love and respect.” -Wm. Paul Young
  4. On this episode of the Krypt we are going to talk about  BDSM on a budget but first, I have to welcome my amazing co-host, Funsize.
  5. So the reason we chose to do this episode now is that Funsize found an infographic on Pinterest about BDSM on a budget and saw a huge safety flaw.  
    1. On this infographic, it suggest several things that are just fine, however one thing it suggest in particular is the use of household candles.  This is a huge no, because household candles have a higher melting point than the candle we in the lifestyle use for wax play, so you will burn your partner if you use these. It’s just a huge safety problem, so today we really want to get into how to have safe, sane, budget friendly BDSM. http://www.ucollectinfographics.com/bdsm-on-a-budget-household-items-that-serve-as-cheap-alternatives-to-toys/
  6. Pervertables- These are items you can convert and pervert for your play, which are not traditionally used in this way.  
    1. Paddles at home:
      1. Spatulas are one of my favorite to be used as paddles.  Also if you have ceramic or metal spatulas you can play with temperature a bit by sticking them in the fridge for 20 minutes prior to play.  Just be sure that you use the flat side and avoid the edges as they may be sharper than they appear when used in impact play.  
      2. Hair brushes.  Not only does the flat side work as a cheap on the spot paddle, but the bristles can create a marvelous sensory feast, especially when combined with a blindfold.  (Which can be made from a silk tie.)  
      3. Rolled up magazines or newspapers create a mild thud and are great fun, especially if you are delving into pet play.  
      4. Paint stirrer sticks.  Often you can get these really cheap or for free at your local hardware store.  
    2. Flogging fun:
      1. Paracord made into a flogger.  If you’re looking to make your own paracord is a great place to start, and much cheaper than leather as far as materials go.  There are tons of diy patterns for making your own flogger on Fetlife, Pinterest, and the internet in general.  
      2. I recently came across a flogger made from an old yoga mat, cut into thick one inch strips and tied for the mop.  I’m actually dying to try this out myself.  
      3. Strips of spare cloth with beads tied to the tails can be arranged into a pretty neat makeshift flogger.  
    3. Other impact play toys at home:
      1. Bamboo or other wooden switches can either be picked up at your local craft shop, or simply from a tree outside.  
        1. Either way remember to sand the wood to get rid of any splinters.  
        2. You can also make a handle out of simple bits of scrap fabric and electrical tape.  
        3. One of my first experiences which I can pinpoint as a moment of pure masochism was when I was a child and ended up taking shelter under a willow tree during a storm.  The branches lashed me as well as any single tail ever has.  So if you have a willow tree on hand, cut off a switch and play with care.  
      2. Wet towels or washcloths.  You know how in movies during a locker room scene someone will snap someone else with a towel…. Same theory, only when wet they sting a lot more so there’s a lot of fun to be had there.  
      3. Leather gloves… Irishmtdragon surprised me with this one recently and I’ve got to say it was actually a lot of fun; fairly light for impact but the stroke of the leather alone was mmm so nice.  
    4. Pincers and clamps:
      1. Clothespins, such a marvelous pervertible, and so cheap.  And if you’ve ever seen pictures of those pretty zipper patterns, well good chance they’re from clothespins.  
      2. Chip bag clamps.  A lot of times you can find these wider clamps and well they are amazing for the uh… lower lips on women.  They can create the pinch and hold, but also provide more surface area and therefore less pain too.  Combined with using some creatively placed tape, and you’re bound to have a good time.  
    5. Other sensory toys you already have:
      1. Ice cubes, need we say more.  If you haven’t explored temperature play, pull out some ice cubes and grab a towel from the dryer, switch between the two and watch your bottom squirm.  
      2. Safety pins.  Tape three or four together with the points open with a pencil as the handle.  Using these to trace over your partner’s skin lightly can raise all sorts of goosebumps.  
      3. Sand paper.  Abrasion play isn’t for everyone and should be approached carefully for those inexperienced in it.  
      4. Back scratchers.  Irish and I have two, one with metal claws and one wooden.  Both are better for teasing than any feathers we’ve come across.  
    6. Spices, stings, and rice.
      1. Tabasco…. Woo that stings!
      2. Ginger… see figging.  
      3. Bags of uncooked rice.  When I was being trained I was instructed to sit on a 5 lb. bag of uncooked rice for as long as needed until I learned my lesson.  I still haven’t forgotten that lesson or how much that rice stabbing into my knees stung.  If you don’t have that much on hand you can spread a cup around inside an empty pillow case for much the same effect.  
  7. Diy and Dom Depot
    1. Often Home Depot is referred to as Dom Depot  but you can also make your furnishings and toys.  
      1. Some of the things you can pick up from Dom Depot are eyelet hooks.  Screw a few of these into chairs, foot stools, or sturdy chests and you’ve got your own at home bondage furniture. Things like this are also pretty easy to hide in plain sight if the discretion of your home is anything you need worry about.  
      2. If suspension is your play of choice you can create your own free-standing beam.  Making your own will cost 1/10th of what buying one would cost.  
      3. Using a cheap plastic tablecloth or tarp and duct tape you can create a protective cover for your furniture in place of sport sheets.  
      4. If you don’t have a piece of furniture you feel comfortable modifying already, check out your local thrift shops.   
  8. It’s important to explore what you have on hand and be safe as always.  There are a lot of groups on Fetlife especially devoted just to sharing plans and diy ideas with others, so be sure to check these out as well.
