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.
