The first step to getting what you want is being able to ask for what you want. When it comes to sex, kink, and sexuality most of us carry around guilt, shame, and the memories of bad experiences, all of these things can make us hesitate when it comes to asking for what we want.

What is it like having kids while being poly & kinky?
I've been asked this question several times and typically I don't discuss it because I've always deemed it "too personal". The point of this podcast, however, is for me to be open, honest and to share more of myself. In this episode, I take all of that to heart and discuss how having kids has changed my poly, my kink, and my life overall.
