ABOUT ME AND THIS BLOG
I’m Laura. I’ve been in ethically non-monogamous relationships for twelve years now, and I found the word polyamory eight years ago and realized it was a great fit for my attitude toward relationships. I’ve been in polycules that have ranged from temporarily closed Vs to constellations whose shapes get increasingly indescribable depending on which relationships particular people considered partnerships worth including.
I’m very sex- and kink-positive, and have been teaching classes on polyamory, sexuality, boundaries, kink, and the intersection of those on a local level and at conventions for the last couple of years. My education in English Lit, Sexual Diversity Studies, and Law inform a perspective that is somewhat unique. I love to share practical information learned from years of fixing my own mistakes and missteps, as well as having somewhere to lay out theoretical information on different forms of polyamory, so the Ready for Polyamory site was born.
This concept is expanding into a podcast, launching June 2020. You can support the blog and podcast by monthly subscription as a Patron on Patreon, one time as a gift on Ko-fi, or for nothing by following on Instagram @readyforpolyamory, on Twitter @lauracb88, or at the Facebook Page.
I'm currently available to teach the following classes, digitally or in person; feel free to contact me for more information on any of them:
-Beyond the Kitchen Table: Modes and Models of Parallel Polyamory
-Polyamory and Parenting
-Intentional Relationships: Communication Strategies for Couples
-Non-Escalator Relationships: Strategies and Challenges
-Boundary Expression and Enforcement ( A 101 Class From a Former Doormat)
-Polyamory and Power Exchange Relationships

In addition to classes, I am available to provide non-monogamous relationship coaching by individual contract, or at certain Patronage tiers on Patreon.
