ABOUT READY FOR POLYAMORY

I’m Laura. I’ve been in ethically non-monogamous relationships for nearly 14 years now, and I found the word polyamory ten 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 since 2018. 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 blog was born. The podcast followed because folks told me some people prefer to digest their information in an audio format, and with a little help from my friends, I’ve received an amazing reception with that over the last year. 

 

If you’re interested in supporting my work on the blog and podcast, you can do so by monthly subscription as a Patron on Patreon, one time as a gift on Ko-fi, or for no financial cost by following on Instagram @readyforpolyamory, on Twitter @lauracb88, or at the Facebook Page. We also have a Facebook Group where we’re trying to build online community and discussion around polyamorous topics, struggles and joys.
