Multiamory Podcast

This is your brain.  And this is your brain on drugs.

Not the recreational kind, mind you.  We are talking about pheromones, serotonin, dopamine, and all the other tasty stuff that gets released in your brain when you fall in love (we tend to call it new relationship energy).  We discuss what actually happens when you're in the throes of all of these brain chemicals.  Find out the three stages of falling in love, and also what the heck "limerence" is.  

We also address poly themes in video games and movies.  

Multiamory was created by Dedeker Winston, Jase Lindgren, and Emily Matlack.

Our theme music is Forms I Know I Did by Josh and Anand.

We are very excited to be interviewing Sarah Mirk, author of the new relationship book Sex from Scratch. A strong voice for feminism, alternative dating, and sex positivity.  Sarah is also the online editor of Bitch magazine and hosts the podcast Popaganda, which examines pop culture through a feminist lens.  Sarah tells us all about feminism, how non-monogamy has shaped her current monogamous relationship, and her one piece of advice for people entering a polyamorous relationship.

You can buy Sex from Scratch here.

We also address some listener emails that cover solo polyamory, as well as the dangers of placing too many restrictions on a relationship. Below you'll find a great comic explaining different relationship styles that came in from one of our listeners. 

Multiamory is also desperate to start handing out swag! If you have a clever idea for a phrase that would go great on a T-shirt, mug, or bumper sticker, let us know! If we pick your idea, we will send you all kinds of free stuff!

Two's company, but three's a crowd?  Not so in polyamory!  Three-person relationships are quite common, and frequently sought after.  We discuss the complexities of triad relationships, and also include advice and things to watch out for if you are a couple seeking a third for your relationship.

We also discuss a conservative editorial piece on the purported damaging effects of being raised in a polyamorous household, in contrast to last week's article on the benefits of growing up with poly parents.

We all have been told over and over again that communication is the key to a good relationship, but how many of us actually know what that means?  The sad fact of the matter is that most of us human beings suck at communication, especially when we let our emotions, personal agendas, or desire to be "right" get in the way.

Though there are hundreds of effective communication strategies, we cover 5 of our favorite techniques to reduce the amount of suck that we bring to each conversation or argument.  In this episode, you'll learn specifically about:

1. Knowing when to H.A.L.T.
2. How to bring emotional honesty to every conversation
3. The 4 basic steps of Non-Violent Communication
4. How reflecting your partner's words can make you a better listener
5.  Finding people other than your partners to talk to when issues or conflict arises

We also discuss the buzz surrounding Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair debut, and a fascinating article written by a young man who was raised in a polyamorous household.  You can check out the article here: http://www.vice.com/read/i-grew-up-in-a-polyamorous-household-528
