Multiamory Podcast

The Multiamory crew have often discussed strategies for finding dating partners through online dating. But what about finding partners in real-life? Can you find poly-friendly partners out at a bar? How do you flirt while also conveying important information about your lifestyle?

We give you a collection of our favorite tips for flirting while out and about, including the best ways to make connections at poly meetups and making agreements for wingman/wingwoman-ing for your partner. And exclusive for our Multiamory podcast listeners, we explain our individually patented flirting techniques: Jase's Conversational Gambit, Emily's Direct Declaration, and Dedeker Throws the Book at You.

At Multiamory, we encourage people to avoid making strict rules when opening up their relationship. However, what about agreements? What about setting boundaries? Are those the same thing as rules? Rules, agreements, and boundaries are all frameworks that can be used to protect yourself within a relationship, but there are subtle differences. On this episode we walk you through these differences, and in particular we focus on setting up healthy and effective boundaries for yourself that do not impose rules on your partners or your partners' relationships.

This week, the Multiamory crew addresses question we get from our listeners all the time: how do I broach the subject of opening up my relationship? If you’re currently in a monogamous relationship, and you’re curious about opening it up, even the thought of suggesting it to your significant other may be unnerving.

In this episode, we give you specific strategies for bringing up the conversation and taking your first steps together toward opening your relationship. We’ll give you tactics to approach this talk in a way that’s unthreatening, collaborative, and will ideally be as comfortable as possible for both of you.

Are some people purely polyamorous and other people are completely monogamous? How can we reconcile these differences? What should I do about jealousy? What kind of polyamorous relationship is right for me?

In our interview with counselor, hypnotherapist, and author Kathy Labriola we get to hear her insights into all of this and more! Some of the topics we cover in this episode:

  • The poly to mono spectrum (like the Kinsey Scale)
  • The "bisexuals" of mono-poly
  • Breakdown of the 3 major polyamorous relationship styles
  • What to do when you and a partner are on different sides of the spectrum

We've also included a BONUS PDF of Kathy Labriola's Jealousy Workbook, available from Greenery Press and on her website KathyLabriola.com, which you can view here (Relationship Orientation Worksheet).

Our culture is steepedinnotions of traditional romance. In so many love songs wehear,"You're the only one for me." Our movies, TV shows, and dozensofother art forms idolize the couple, the soulmates, thestar-crossedlovers. Our notions of "romance" are still heavily tiedup tosexual exclusivity. If you have multiple partners, how do yougetall mushy and romantic when you can't fall back on theusualmonogamous phrases? In this episode, we examine the ways thatartand media shape our views of romance, as well as ways to makeyourpartners feel special and cared for outside of the languageofexclusivity.
