Love in Brief is an ABDL advice podcast focused on love: love of self, love of others, and romantic love. (Note: ABDL is a fetish/kink, and all episodes may contain sexual content).
LIB 84 - The Early Days of ABDL (Part 1)
55:11None of us know how long ABDL has been a thing in concept, but it has been a thing in name (in one form or another) for 50 years or less. And the ABDL community has been around for an even shorter period, evolving from snail-mail correspondence and back-room photo developing through the days of the very first PO boxes, personal ads and meet-ups, and well into the internet age. On this episode of Love In Brief, we get the pleasure of talking with DiaperedKent (@diaperedkent on FetLife) about his experience both participating in and creating the first ABDL communities in the United States, and possibly around the world. (We would love to know about other communities around the world created back in the 60's and 70's, please write to us!) It is an enthralling discussion with consistent themes for today, and helps us to question and evolve even further how we want to do community together.
LIB 83 - Early Mistakes and Dangerous Situations
51:11This week's episode is out, and as always I wanted to get it straight to you! This week's episode was a request: what about those mistakes that people make early on that can actually be dangerous? And how do you avoid them? So we talked to two people who had just that experience and were willing to share their experiences, and some tips for next time. Huge thanks to Diapered Wolf Pup and Arellabell (who wants me to tell you she is 5'10" tall for some reason, which is absolutely untrue) for being brave enough to share their stories! CONSENT-RELATED WARNING: Parts of this episode are about issues surrounding consent. There is no physical abuse or sexual assault in this episode, but the possibility of it as a dangerous outcome is implied. Just a warning for those who may be sensitive to this.
LIB 82 - Data Privacy & You
43:45In this episode we talk to a cybersecurity expert (and friend in the community) about common mistakes people make regarding their data privacy, and some really practical tips and tricks on how you can do an even better job making sure your private life is kept truly private. (It's also a first for LIB -- RY is substituting his voice in for our expert's in real-time for the purposes of... well... privacy! Let's see how it goes....)
LIB 81 - Summer 2021 Question Round-Up
43:37We are back from our annual summer hiatus, and rearin' to go! Psyched to get back into the question collection, dust off a couple of wonderful but overlooked questions, and hopefully pull out some timely advice. It's also time to share a new theme song from a talented LIB listener! Here is our quarterly question round up, where we tackle issues like keeping friends between events, being a kink N00b in a big city, how to find love beyond just the kink, and how normal/weird you are for liking what you like. We hope you love it!
BONUS - World-Record Breaking Announcement!
10:36Yes, we just put out an episode yesterday (you should listen to it, it's awesome). But we got some big news and COULD NOT WAIT TO SHARE IT! Hang on to your metric systems, this one is a record-breaker...
LIB 80 - ABDL Makers Series - Build Your Own Diaper Store!
39:08Some of us dream of making podcasts, some of us dream of making art or music or literature... and some of us just go all in and build an entire giant diaper store. Well, that's what theses guests in our Makers Series finale did, anyway. We talk with @realcoffeemom (IG) @dadgazm (IG) @_fuzzy_dunlop (IG) and @dabsanddips (IG) about how they built their ABDL SuperStore, ABDLr (@abdlrdenver on all social media), which is opening in Denver in August 2021. This intrepid crew reflects on the others who have come before them to pioneer selling adult diapers in retail, talks about the process of going from dreaming to doing, and looks forward to what may be to come for ABDL retail in the future. Aaaand, some sneak previews of the store features!
LIB 79 - TipsyPantz roadnottaken
46:30By popular request, we give you this counter-punch to the Drunkypantz RY episode... a very tipsy roadnottaken eating answering listener questions! Key talking points of this episode include - strawberry ASMR, terrible mathematics, what to do when 'the talk' goes bad, rnt's poor decisions, the missing kink, incontinence questions, dangerous online behavior, arts and literature and did I mention the terrible mathematics? Back to our regularly-scheduled programming next episode, but we didn't want to miss a chance at a return-volley from rnt and about three vodka-citrus cocktails.
LIB 78 - ABDL Makers Series - Sex Workers
43:10Call it what you like: paid content creation, pornography, sex work... whatever you call it, it's a thriving part of our community and a place where a lot of creators and entrepreneurs show off their creativity and spirit (and sometimes lots more!) :) This week's episode features Sunny Days (@littlebitofsunny, IG) and Chad Sexington (@nunchuckdaddyakabobby, IG) to share their perspectives as a more experienced and brand new sex worker, respectively. We talk about making the turn from unpaid content to paid content, the pressures and plusses of doing sex work, and look at advice for how those considering sex work in our community might think about it. Sunny's Patreon: @sunnywittledays Chad's PocketStars: @chadsexington0490 **NOTE - This episode contains discussion about eating, exercise and body image**
LIB 77 - Talking to a Partner About Going to Events
41:12It's hard to believe after fourteen months of quarantine, but *events are starting up again!* They will start small and grow over time as folks get vaccinated... so what better time than now to talk about how to prepare for the munches, meetups and events of the future? In this week's episode we take a break from our Maker's series to answer two similar questions about how to introduce the idea of going to an event to a partner. Our wonderful guest, TB, shares with us his experience and offers sage advice on that critical conversation.
LIB 76 - ABDL Makers Series - Building An ABDL App
47:36We have talked to writers and artists, performers and diaper-makers... but what if you are a tech person? How can you get involved by making something for the community? In this episode, we welcome back Mako (FL) to the podcast to talk about his process of building a web app, Weminder, specifically for the ABDL community. He brings his thoughtful advice to those with a tech bent or a big idea about how to make an app for ABDLs. As bonus content, I'm pretty sure you can also hear rnt's crinkles throughout, so that's something.
