Episode 34: Designer Relationships

In this episode, we are joined by Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson, the authors of the new book, Designer Relationships.  We have an amazing conversation where they share with us their perspective about relationships, non-monogamy, and even themselves.  You will really enjoy what they had to say and we encourage you to buy their book to find out more!

Here is the link to the “Un-Learning Jealousy in Ethical Non-Monogamy” event that we referenced at the top of the show.

We also talked a bit about eye gazing and Angela referenced performance artist Marina Abramovic’s exhibit in which she did such an exercise with members of the public at large and ended up across the table from a former lover that she hadn’t seen in over 20 years.  To illustrate the power that eye gazing can bring to two people, we want to show you the video of that exchange:

Episode 33: I am a Poly Sex Worker

Jennifer starts with opening it as “Episode 34” when it’s really Episode 33.  Sorry about that folks.  She explains that she’s super tired from a work project.  Brain farts happen to the best of us.

We are joined today in the Poly in the Cities lab by Bee, who describes herself as a muse, mama, mystic, activist, and a full service sex worker with a background of over a decade in reproductive health.  She shares some really great perspective about the sex worker trade, her personal experiences, and how that interacts for her in non monogamy.  Bee has also asked us to remind everyone that sex is right up there on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with Food, Breathing and Homeostasis, so as she puts it, “screw someone today!”.

Many thanks to Optimus Prime for donating the new computer to the project.  Jennifer is working out the bugs to improve the sound quality.  You rock, dude!!
