Fetish Friday: Banging A Buick – Mechanophilia and the Law

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines for this May, 2018 edition of Fetish Friday here on Lawyers & Liquor, where we examine the law in relation to the sexual escapades of others.  Last time we covered what could best be described as a heavier than hell topic, the legality of cartoon porn depicting children or characters that are otherwise assumed to be minors, so I figured this time we’d return to something lighthearted.  Something we can talk about without making the skin crawl right off our bodies and nope the hell out of here.  Something that’ll really get your motors running.

That’s right, this month for Fetish Friday we’re going to talk about the sexual kink known as Mechanophilia, or the sexual attraction to machinery.

I’m your host, the Boozy Barrister.

Fetish Friday: The Legality of Fictional Minors in Sexual Conduct

Welcome to Fetish Friday here on Lawyers & Liquor, and we’re not going to spend any time dicking around with being funny today.  We got a lot to talk about, so we’re going to just dive right in.

I’m the Boozy Barrister, and today we’re going to discuss the legality or illegality of drawn, sexually explicit images of fictional minors under federal law.

Fetish Friday: Trademark Infringement and the ABDL Community, Part 2

Hey guys, we’re back for Part 2 of the Fetish Friday this week, and before we start doing a wrist deep dive into the world of Adult Baby/Diaper Lover Litigation, let me first apologize for my absence this week.  I’ve been busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest over the past week, rubbing hither and yonder to take care of some personal shit as well as juggling my case load, and it got in the way of getting this stuff out when I was planning to.  sincere apologies.

So, if you weren’t around last time, know that I started talking about Adult Baby/Diaper Lovers, a community shorthanded into “AB/DL,” and giving a brief overview of exactly what the hell that is.  But I’m not going to do that again here, because I don’t have the time of the inclination to spend an hour rehashing a post that’s already in existence.  Click back through and read that shit, okay?

The reason for that whole thing was, very recently, a lawsuit was filed by one maker of adult diapers against another, and it wasn’t about moving into the pull-ups line, turning off Thomas the Tank Engine, of anything of that nature.  Rather, it was a lawsuit about…trademark infringement. And that brings up an interesting question:  Do they have a case, or are they just being big  babies about all of this?

Fetish Friday: Trademark Infringement and the ABDL Community, Part 1 – What’s ABDL?

Welcome to Fetish Friday on Lawyers and Liquor and oh my god I have learned so much about Adult Baby Diaper Lovers over the past 72 hours. Seriously, I have just learned so much. It is so damn interesting. I mean, it definitely isn’t my bag (no, no I do not need to try it to be sure, I get bothered by changing my kid’s diapers) but I had no clue how deep and complex the whole community of “ABDL” actually was.

I mean, honestly, when you hear “full grown adults who enjoy wearing diapers” you don’t actually think that it’s going to be some amazingly in depth area of study. You think it’s going to be about fucking. Because, as humans, everything at some point becomes about fucking for some people. And I’ll be the first to admit, that was flat out my thought process on ABDL until I started researching this article. “Self,” I muttered, “we’re about to go down a very unsettling rabbit hole without a diaper genie in sight. Just remember your three rules.”

My three rules, by the way, determine if something ranks on my “give a shit” scale:

  1. Is it non-consensual?
  2. Is anybody being severely injured?
  3. Is it illegal?

If the answers to all three are “No,” then have at. You do you. It doesn’t affect me and it’s none of my goddamn business what you do in the privacy of your own nursery.

Instead…well, look, let’s just jump straight into this faster than I jumped off the changing table as a kid (ask to see my scar sometime).

Fetish Friday: Bad Doggy – The Legality of Pup Hoods In Public

Hey my favorite group of kinksters! It’s time to delve into the sexually charged aspects of the law in another Fetish Friday here on Lawyers & Liquor, with all of the associated whips, chains, clamps, hot wax, and just general blowing of those vanilla minds that you guys love so goddamn much! So without further ado, because unlike Mistress Mona I don’t get off by making you squirm in anticipation, let’s dive right into the hot, sticky, and oh-so-alluring mess that gets created with the wearing of fetish gear in public!

Like most subjects these days, this one was first presented by the furries, those interesting folks that get themselves up in a tizzy about all sorts of things. Apparently there’s an ongoing debate about the legality and appropriateness of wearing things like leather hoods shaped like dog heads (“Pup Hoods”) the public spaces of convention hotels and centers and the associated impact on the public. A lot of the back and forth on the matter seems to be “it doesn’t look right to others” on one side with the opposing side responding “there’s nothing illegal about wearing this stuff in public.”

Can you filthy little worms figure out which side of that debate caught my interest more than the other? Oh yeah, baby. It was the legal aspect, because lawsplaining shit is my thing.

So let’s start delving about elbow deep in the dark crevices that’s the legality of using and wearing fetish-associated gear in public. Today we’re gonna focus on Pup Hoods specifically, but I think I’ll be back to this one in regards to other things in the not-too-distant future, because there’s a LOT of other shit we can talk about in relation to this.

  But, as always, first a disclaimer, because like all of you fine folks, Boozy likes to play safe.
