From Monogamy to Polyamory: Easing the Transition
Welcome back to my playground, Lexual fiends and friends.
I am LOVING all the amazing messages I receive from my podcast listeners! I feel so encouraged that you are coming to me for advice on your sexuality and relationships, and that you're listening to my episodes and feel comfortable talking to me about your sex life.
When I don't know the answers (and I NEVER claim to have all of them), I like to refer to some of my more specialized friends and resources, so they can give you the expert advice you truly deserve!
Lately, I've been receiving a lot of questions from listeners about how to go from being monogamous to polyamorous, because it can seem like QUITE a massive jump in terms of your mindset and lifestyle.
So in today's episode, I invited Jessica Fern — psychotherapist, speaker, and coach — to talk to me (and all of you!) about how to transition from a monogamous relationship into a polyamorous one (as smoothly as possible)!
I also feel like Jessica's advice and tips are beneficial even if you're not in a relationship currently, but are trying to move from a monogamy mindset to a poly one.
So if you're curious about ethical non-monogamy, or are you already in some form of a non-monogamous relationship, and you want to know more about polyamory and what it takes to have a healthy polyamorous relationship, especially if you’ve only been in monogamous relationships before... this episode is for you!
There are different kinds of non-monogamous relationships, and the important thing to remember is that there’s NO ONE RIGHT WAY to do non-monogamy, just as there’s NO ONE RIGHT WAY to be monogamous.
But as you'll discover during this podcast, there are some important tips to helping you and your partner (or partners) find a healthy recipe that works for all of you.
Jessica Fern offers advice on how to ease the transition from monogamy to polyamory, the skills, and techniques you need to have, and other important things to consider to smooth out the kinks.
So, listen to this episode in the player above and let me know what you think!
