Episode 50: #ItTakesASexyVillage

WE MADE IT!!  This is Episode 50!!

To join us for the close of “Sextember” is Mistress Mara, a local Dominatrix, who you may remember from Episode 24 (Kink and Non-Monogamy).  She has graciously come back to the Poly In The Cities studio to share with us the latest happenings regarding her work with the local kink community as well as discussing a topic that is near and dear to her heart: the importance of community to thrive as your true and authentic self.  Mara is an amazing supporter of our show and we are always grateful for her wisdom.

We are also using episode 50 to launch two new features for our show: #smellslikesoup and “Poly In Your City”, where we will showcase a non-profit community organization dedicated to supporting the non-monogamy community anywhere in the world.  Our first group to kick off this new segment is Triangle Polyamory based in North Carolina.

Episode 46: Living In A Triad with Jeff Leavell

For this episode, we are joined by author Jeff Leavell who you may recall we discussed in Episode 23 last season with his article in Vice Magazine about the challenges of living in a triad relationship.  He has graciously agreed to join us via Skype to share with our listeners his perspectives on what it takes to make triad relationships work, his view on polyamory, and the latest developments on his relationships.

Jeff was brutally honest, vulnerable and most importantly, unapologetic about who he is and how he lives his life.  We want to thank him for such an amazing conversation.
