Welcome back to my playground, you sexy pervs.
I've been receiving great feedback from my listeners about last week's episode about ethical non-monogamy with Dr. Liz Powell. If you haven't heard it yet, give it a listen!
Tonight's podcast is devoted to the topic of polyamory, a subject that seems to be becoming more popular in mainstream media, much like the concept of non-monogamy in general. People are sticking less and less to traditional relationship norms and are looking outside the (sometimes restrictive) box of monogamy to find a relationship type that works for them and their personality.
And for a lot of people, that means polyamory.
I invited an expert to join me: Dr. Eli Sheff, PhD, researcher, expert witness, coach, speaker, AASECT certified sex educator, educational consultant and published author of The Polyamorists Next Door (2014 hardback and ebook, 2015 paperback and audiobook), Stories from the Polycule (2015), and When Someone You Love is Polyamorous (2016).
Here are some of the topics we'll be covering in today's podcast (and a whole lot more):
What IS polyamory?
What can different types of polyamorous relationships look like?
Are you curious whether or not polyamory can work for you, and how to manage some potential conflicts to maintain a healthy poly relationship?
How can you set boundaries that work for everyone involved in the polyamorous relationship?
How can you move into a polyamorous relationship dynamic as a couple with your partner?
What is the importance of polyaffective relationships (metamours) to the emotional health of a polycule?
I personally think that one of the most poignant elements that will be discussed during this episode include the fact that we discuss everything from how to determine if you're ready for polyamory on any level (because it takes ENERGY and TIME), some of the most common conflicts in a polycule and how to resolve them, as well as a few other important notes you should know!
So whether you're in a polyamorous relationship or not, or are just intrigued by how someone can manage to have connections to multiple people at the same time, this podcast is for you.
