Multiamory Podcast

It's our LAST episode of 2015, and what a year it was!  As we head into the holiday season, we want to give a huge thank you to all of our listeners for supporting our efforts, sharing our content, and giving us encouraging feedback.  We would not still be going if it were not for you!

In this episode, we talk about bringing partners (one or many) home to meet your family around the holidays.  We give our best tips for deciding when is the right time to bring someone home and how to make this introduction smooth, comfortable, and less awkward. 

Other talking points:

-- Mo'Nique's open marriage to Sidney Hicks
-- Polyamory as a central plot theme in a recent episode of the CBS show Elementary

For those of you with your heads in the gutter, this episode of the Multiamory podcast is not about masturbation, but rather how to maintain a healthy polyamorous relationship with yourself.  We welcome back our good friends Brooke and Johnny to help explore how to take care of yourself while juggling the day to day challenges of maintaining multiple relationships.  During this episode the four of us explore such topics as:
 
- Scheduling "dates" with yourself.
- Taking the energy and time to do kind things for yourself that you are used to doing for your partners.
- Knowing and acknowledging your own boundaries and ideals about the relationships in which you are partaking. 
- Understanting your own polyamorous philosophies.  
 
We also talk about how to wrangle every woman's dream: a man who doesn't watch porn, look at other women, drink alcohol or play video games (yeah right) and constantly reference the current game none of us can seem to stop playing: Fallout 4.

Having a community or a support network is vital for human beings.  This is especially so for anyone engaging in polyamory, non-monogamy, or other alternative lifestyles.  This week we consult with Kate and Ryan of the Love is Not a Finite Resource (LINAFR) community based in Tuscon, Arizona.

Kate and Ryan share with us their experience creating a community that provides a place for non-monogamous folk to meet, discuss relevant topics, share problems, and enjoy a safe, supportive space.  They share with us tips for starting up your own community as well as ways to handle conflict and disagreements. 

There's also a lot of adorable cat action if you watch the YouTube video.

If you are in the Tuscon area and want to get in touch with Kate and Ryan, you can reach them here:

For those of you who are tired of plain ol' vanilla...it's time to go to kinky town!

This week we discuss kinks, fetishes, and paraphilias.  We explore the basics of the BDSM scene, including discussions on safety, consent, and risk.  If you are intimidated by sharing your kinks with a partner or if you are trying to understand your partner's kinks, we give advice on how to start that conversation, as well as how to begin opening yourself to different sexual adventures. 

Other talking points:
-- The deep, dark abyss that is the Dating & Relationships section of Yahoo Answers.

Two brand new poly books just hit the scene, and we devoured them pretty ravenously!  This week we review Wide Open: My Adventures in Polyamory, Open Marriage, and Loving on My Own Terms by Gracie X.  Our listeners may remember our interview with Gracie X in Episode 34 - Poly with Kids.   In Gracie's book, she tells her personal journey into innovating the relationship she had with her husband of 20 years, culminating in cohabiting with her new partner, her husband, her husband's new partner, and all of their kids! 

We also dissect Dewayne Lehman's new book Polyamory: It's Not Complicated.  Dewayne writes with the cisgender heterosexual alpha male in mind, giving tough love advice about open relationships, dealing with metamours, and handling jealousy and competition. 

Other talking points:

-- Getting aroused by witnessing marijuana use.

All of your hosts have chosen to cohabit with romantic partners, both in monogamous and polyamorous relationships, and our experiences run the gamut from being amazing to being a total nightmare. We have condensed our own experiences and the wisdom of others into 10 things to keep in mind when getting ready to share a living space with your paramour.
