IMG_9927

We’re delighted that Sara-Mae is getting a chance to natter with queen of the airwaves Bibi Lynch on her marvellous Soho Radio show.

We’ll be chatting about season 1: The Sugar Baby Confessionals, plus developments with season 2, so look out for that.

Also on will be BBC Radio presenter Jo Good talking about her new podcast Dogs and The City, and comedian Phil Nichol will be discussing his Your Wrong tour.

Also… be sure to prime yourself by listening to the hilarious episode of Bibi’s Metro podcast Good Sex Bad Sex with ex-sex worker and comedian Miranda Kane. It features sugar baby heroine Ruby indulging in a titillating (or tintillating? You’ll have to listen to the podcast to get that in-joke) tête-à-tête –

(Theme: Catching up)

We catch up with Ruby and Madelaine and see where they are after 7 months of sugar-babying ? how have they changed? What are the upsides and the issues they’ve faced? Have their sexual fantasies been fulfilled? Has it all been worth it?

Find out what FPs ultimatum to Ruby was and whether or not Madelaine’s decided to stick with sugar babying, or give it up altogether…

Get in touch, we’d love to hear from you:

Everyone’s talking about the best new podcast to hit the interweb!

 

Hey lovely people –

If you haven’t listened, we’d love to hear your thoughts – it’s been a lot of work, in all our weekends and spare hours, and we’re very proud of it.

 

It’s a complete story, so be sure to listen (it’s available on all podcast players, including iTunes, Spotify and Stitcher) from the beginning to get the full effect:

Journalists like Bibi Lynch, sexologist Alix Fox and Rob Crossan have described it as “compelling,” “beautifully put together”, intriguing, “off-kilter”, and very candid!

 

Here are some more listener reviews: 
“Delusions of grandeur
are inherent in youth
it’s the nightmare
of the tangled bed sheets
the result of reckless actions
that haunts one in old age.” – Bette O’Callaghan
“Love it, well written, presented and thoroughly enjoyed. Never heard of a sugar baby before.” Lucinda Sieger

 

Sara-Mae and several lovely people like Beth Keehn, Mike Scott are doing all this in their spare time, so recognition like this goes a long way towards helping us to attract potential sponsors – which ultimately means we can keep doing creating marvellous audio stories! 
(Trust us, season 2 is going to be even better *cough* Stephen Fry *cough*)

 

And please feel free to forward this email or spread the news in any way you see fit 😉

 

Lots of love xx

 

Sara-Mae

 

The Sugar Baby Confessionals listeners have spoken!

Our listeners hail from all over the globe…

We’ve been finding the stats on who is listening and where endlessly fascinating. Currently, we have almost 2,000 downloads!

Just think… 2,000 strangers are involved in Ruby’s story. The bulk of the listeners are from the US and UK, naturally, but it truly boggles the mind to imagine, for example:

25 beguiling Belgians

9 fiesty French people

7 naughty Nederlanders

11 saucy Swedes

7 intelligent Israelis

18 svelte South Africans (these are probably members of my extended family though, to be fair)

In the whole entirety of South America, there are a mere 6 elegant Ecuadorians listening.

Why just Ecuador? We like to picture one particularly perspicacious person hearing of it somehow and telling 5 of their friends they just have to hear all about Ruby’s high jinks. What a lovely thought.

Having said that, we wish the single Romanian person listening would shift themselves a bit more to recommend it. It’s far too dreary picturing them in their solitary enjoyment. Share it with your friends, people of the world!

It’s also been lovely to get feedback from our listeners as to why they’ve enjoyed the pod:

Lucinda Sieger (incidentally a gorgeous and talented Glasgow born, international singer/songwriter, and host of the arts event: Lucie’s Lounge)

 

Love it, well written, presented and thoroughly enjoyed. Never heard of a sugar baby before.

 

Jé Maverick (poet and writer)

 

I used to go out with a poly girl, so it raised a lot of interesting emotions/memories…[Polyamory] really wasn’t for me. I have many disagreements with a lot of the premises/arguments adhered to in the domain of polyamory. Not ethical issues, more issues of practicality. I think there is a lot of dogmatic thought within polyamorous circles, which makes it interesting to reverse engineer and scrutinize, but perilous to be involved with if it really isn’t your bag.

 

The uber glamorous poet Bette O’Callaghan, whom we’ve long admired from afar, was kind enough to chat to Sara-Mae about her thoughts on the podcast. (Do yourselves a favour and watch her amazing videos. She is wonderful, fearless and a has a damn fine way with words.)

Reproduced with permission from Bette.

One thing we really enjoy about this process is that we’re inciting conversations about the more challenging themes explored in the podcast. Issues around fidelity, monogamy and modern love can be highly troubling to many people.
Bette took the time to ponder the underlying complications becoming a sugar baby might throw up to someone who, like Ruby, is married.

 

The podcast was well done with the mix of your interjections and the music…In so far as the topic… is a successful marriage really built on sex? I am more of the school that too many people are sucked into what I refer to as ‘the Saturday night rip off’ which is a fairy tale expectation of romance. There is nothing in life that is all good all the time. It is clear to me, from all of the people who have spoken to me regarding their relationships, that in every relationship, one person loves the other more than the other. That person tends to give up more.

 

Is Ruby’s husband, FP, giving up more? Listen to The Sugar Baby Confessionals here, to make your own judgment.
Bette finished her review on a beautifully poetic note:

 

A more cogent and brief review of the podcast, herewith.
Delusions of grandeur
are inherent in youth
it’s the nightmare
of the tangled bed sheets
the result of reckless actions
that haunts one in old age”

Look out for Bette’s performances and be sure to buy a collection of her poetry if you’re lucky enough to see her.

Here are some of Bette’s videos to enjoy:
