Today polyamory is widely practiced in the BDSM/Leather/Fetish communities. Stretching our emotional boundaries via exploration of our kinks is part of the thrill for many of us, yet some say they were caught unprepared for the amount of drama that arose when they introduced polyamory into the mix. In a very real sense polyamory is a form of emotional edge play by which we seek to stretch our emotional boundaries around partnership, sex, love and romance.
• How does being into BDSM/Leather/Fetish prepare us for establishing happy polyamorous lives?
• How does the practice of polyamory in kinky relationships differ from vanilla polyamory?
• What are the common pitfalls of living a kinky poly life?
• What are polyamory's universal truths, and how are they best applied in a kinky poly context?
All of these ideas and questions will be explored as we discover what it takes to establish and maintain happy and healthy kinky polyamorous relationships, families and networks.
