Goth has an older history with the S&M community than one might think. In the 80’s these sex shops were a refuge for goths, punks, and alternatives alike, both as a safe space for expression and one of the few options to buy and modify alternative clothing. S&M was also seen in several deathrock and goth micromedia outlets, from music videos by bands like Nervous Gender, to transgressive publications like Propoganda Magazine, to full blown communities like the one centered around psychic TV. Even today, clubs that cater to BDSM clientele often host goth nights, blurring the lines between where goth and explicitly sexually deviant lifestyles start and end. Both BDSM and goth share lifestyle components, and both have seen their sartorial style, mined by pop artists and fashion lines, in an attempt add a darker edge to the mundanity of mainstream aesthetic, as if goth and BDSM were simply spectacular styles to be appropriated for similarly vacuous purposes. So on today’s episode, I’d like to explore those boundaries of style, community, and lifestyle, to see where these two cultures crossover and where they diverge.

Welcome back to Cemetery Confessions! On this month's podcast we are talking about death, cemetery tourism and romanticized morbidity, we are reviewing the new album from Die Selektion, and we are going to cover a gambit of topics relating to identity, club culture, goth youtube, fashion, and music from the perspective of those who came to goth culture in the modern age.

Our guests this month are Lennox, Shelby, and Lilith!

Philosophy Corner: 56:03

Baby bats are often seen as the lifeblood of the club scene, and are often the metric by which the health of goth culture is measured, and when they aren’t showing up to events the “goth is dead” crowd make their concerns known. As goth ages 40 years on, concern over the livelihood and influx of new members has been a consistent topic of discussion. Elder goths, millennials, the music industry, the internet, club owners, the economy, postmodern youth culture, all have been pointed to as culpable in what some perceive to be the death knell of goth. Are these claims valid, or just extremist and myopic assertions? This month I intend to explore each of these avenues both from the perspective of someone who has been goth for well over a decade, and from the fresh perspective of our guests.

Welcome to episode 43 of Cemetery Confessions! This month we are talking about subverting gender norms and the role performative aesthetic plays in goth identity, we are reviewing the new album from Selofan, and we are talking about the trans experience within the context of goth culture.

Philosophy Corner: 1:34:14

While the existence of trans people has only recently come into mainstream consciousness in the form of a fight for equal rights, biologists have known for a long time that gender, sexuality, anatomy, and identity are a spectrum both in nature and in homosapiens. Goths too, have a history of subverting heteronormative patriarchal gender norms and expectations, and providing a safe space for those who don’t conform to an essentialist dichotomy. However the debate about whether or not goth culture is, in its current state, truly accepting and progressive, cis-centric and discriminatory,  or whether it even has any power at all to reshape culture into an egalitarian community apart from mainstream patriarchy, still rages today.

Philosophy Corner: 1:05:54

Much like the characters in Gothic fiction who are oft prone to sticking around or coming back after death, so too Gothic Literature refuses to remain buried and forgotten. Generally agreed to have been conceptualized with The Castle of Otranto, the first wave of Gothic fiction, as it were, was from 1760-1780, and the better known second wave at the end of the 19th century, produced many works with which we remain familiar, including Dracula, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and The Picture of Dorian Grey. Today The Gothic continues to cycle through culture with new twists and new existential terrors with films such as Crimson Peak, books such as Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, as well as pop culture, music, art, clothing, and of course, the goth subculture.

Traditionally speaking, before the internet became ubiquitous, sociologists considered diffusion vital to the survival of subculture. For goth in the 80’s there was a heavy reliance on zine’s and newsletters for the transfer of information and facilitation of discourse. Ironically, now that we have an efficient medium for such diffusion, many claim that medium is ushering in the death of subculture.

Despite the general angst or love surrounding the internet, surprisingly little qualitative or statistically significant data on the effect of the internet on goth or subcultures in general is available. This month we add to that discussion, as we explore the nature of the internet, the facilitation of identity construction, the debate between structured culture and post-subcultural groupings, cultural capitol, and more.

Philosophy Corner: 1:29:33

This month we are talking about what it means to be an individual within a group context, what elements create a goth identity, and how authenticity plays into the structure of goth culture and identity construction. While the supposed bifurcation of individualism and conformism, is less discursive a topic than “what is goth”, it is nevertheless just as contentious. We’ve all heard comments such as, “you all look the same”, or, “goth is what you make it”, and, “it’s about being a pure individualist”.
Goth identity in some ways then, might be seen as a paradox. So, what we are going to look at tonight is how a goths lived experience, adherence to venerated ideals, and their shared epistemology, coexist with a simultaneous eschewing of labels, and desire to avoid precise classification. I’m hoping we can also touch on the extent to which that paradoxical identity has lessened or stayed the same over time, and what practical impact that has on an individual.

We are interviewing Emma tonight about socio-aesthetic experiences of culture, cultural history, viewing goth as a culture rather than subculture, and the sociology of design; specifically how that translates into communities of belonging especially among goths. Emma is now undertaking a PhD as a participant researcher. She recently conducted the largest ever survey about goth, among participants of the culture for that very project, which is titled Just a Phase?  Goth subculture as an identity constant beyond youth.

Goths have a long standing tradition for being catty, gate keeping, drama queens, too pretentious for their own good. This month we embody that stereotype by competing for goth points, bitching about the internet, and even spend some time in the confessional box. Prepare for The Gothquisition!

This month we are covering the topic of sex as it relates to goth culture, scene and club culture, and its link to sexual expectations of the greater mainstream culture. Issues such as goth club environments, bisexuality, polyamory, and romance will be explored in the context of personal meaning, socialization, and the sociological perspective. My hope is that we can come away with a better understanding of ourselves as sexual creatures, the goth subcultures approach to the issue of sex and sexuality, and understand how outside influences can exert unforeseen influence on our sexual identities.

It's been said, the core of goth culture revolves around the club. That is where we meet, mingle, create friendships, express ourselves, and explore the culture. However what happens for those who don't have a goth club, or those who are disabled, or have multiple children, or a 60 hour a week job etc. What happens when we get fed up withthe local scene due to infighting or politics? How do you carry on in your daily life, still knowing who you are in your "gothdom" without needing that coveted approval.

We are going to examine some subcultural ideals and how they affect our behavior. While i have venerated the goth subculture and find it a wonderful beautiful group, I am going to try to take a hard critical look at some aspects of goth this time around for the sake of helping to build a better culture.

Defining Goth:
Nephelim's Video Definition
Count's Definition: Goth is a state of being that embraces what the mainstream shuns, a view of life that incorporates the world of night as well as the world of day. "romance is at the heart of being a goth and consequently tragedy is always a sigh away." It's not just about death, but a refined sensitivity to life, and an ability to appreciate the shadowy elements that much of society is busy ignoring. To be goth is to be unashamed, both internally and externally, to recognize we are all bound for the grave, that no one deserves to be persecuted for being true to themselves, and to live everyday as you are, a goth.
