For this episode, we are joined again by Shawny, a local sex educator and friend of Poly in the Cities (who you remember from our episode on abuse in kink) who has returned to our studio to join Angela in sharing their workshop on disclosure. This discussion is really helpful for everyone who is facing a difficult decision of disclosing something very personal (like being non-monogamous, for example) to someone very close to them. Give this one a listen. You’ll learn a lot!
Here is the run through for BRAINN as described by Angela and Shawny:
B – What are the Benefits?
R – What are the Risks?
A – What is an Alternative?
I – What does your Intuition say?
N– What if you do Nothing?
N– What do you do Next?

We are joined by local sex and relationship therapist, Carise Rotach-Beard, who came to the Poly In The Cities lab to share with our listeners her recent workshop on jealousy. She brought her amazing blend of intelligence and f-bombs to schools us all on the topic and how to navigate this very complex emotion. It’s a really great listen.

In this episode, we are joined by our two friends — Lindsey, a sex educator from the Family Tree Clinic and Laura Rademacher of Sky Hill Therapy (you folks remember her from Episode 29, right?). Our two awesome friends came onto the show to talk about STI’s, what really happens when you ask to get tested, what to do when you get the results, and what all of this means in the world of non-monogamy.

For this episode, we are joined by comedian Billy Procida who hosts his own podcast called “The Manwhore Podcast: A Sex Positive Quest for Love”.
He joins us via Skype from his home in New York to talk about his show, his take on polyamory, pussy eating, and sex with strangers. It’s a great conversation and we loved having had the chance to chat with him.

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!”.
