On this episode of the Sexology podcast, our guest Martha Kauppi talks to us about polyamory. What is polyamory and how does it work? We’re talking all about it.
There are different ways of doing relationships. Polyamorous can work and it’s not just a fancy way and teaching. Transparency is not infidelity. People in polyamorous relationships really enjoy intimacy. These relationships require very clear communication.
Not everyone is in a sexual relationship with each other. The most common relationship structure is a ‘v’, one person who is in a relationship with two people who are not in a relationship with one another. Triads are also common.
- Alternative relationship structures
- Research on monogamous couples
- Levels of intimacy
- Misconceptions regarding polyamorous relationships
- Developmental model of couple therapy
- Getting grounded
- Assessing what you want and believe in
- Working with jealousy through self-regulation
- Ways to co-regulate
