MA 066: Polyamorous and Monogamous Orientation – Multiamory


Are some people purely polyamorous and other people are completely monogamous? How can we reconcile these differences? What should I do about jealousy? What kind of polyamorous relationship is right for me?

In our interview with counselor, hypnotherapist, and author Kathy Labriola we get to hear her insights into all of this and more! Some of the topics we cover in this episode:

  • The poly to mono spectrum (like the Kinsey Scale)
  • The “bisexuals” of mono-poly
  • Breakdown of the 3 major polyamorous relationship styles
  • What to do when you and a partner are on different sides of the spectrum

We've also included a BONUS PDF of Kathy Labriola's Jealousy Workbook, available from Greenery Press and on her website, which you can view here (Relationship Orientation Worksheet).
