But mostly, she's on a crusade to rid the world of sexual shame and abuse brought on by years of oppressive societal conditioning. She is on Twitter a LOT.

    Gabriel is was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He now lives in Hollywood where he is a professional trailer editor who's created commercials for Hollywood studios, streaming platforms and independent productions. He uses Twitter to raise awareness about polyamory and kink. Above all, he is known for his serious collection of hats and BDSM accoutrements.

    602 Loving an addict

    A listener falls in love with a relapsed, suicidal alcoholic and asks how to move forward when her husband hates this new relationship that makes her so happy.

    1:30 Lusty Guy’s Politics Corner: look at your party’s track record

    The next time you’re wondering about what side of any given political debate to adopt, consider the track record of the folk advocating for each given side. If they are among those who think the 2020 election was stolen, say, you can reasonably assume they have a long track record of being wrong. And, as we all know, past behavior is the best predictor of future performance.

    6:30 Topic: My husband doesn’t like that I’m dating a relapsed, suicidal alcoholic

    A married listener is dating a relapsed alcoholic. When her husband asked her to stop seeing him, she tried, but he was too drunk to understand and then threatened suicide. A while later she took up with him again and tried to get him into a facility, and then she started not telling her husband when she was seeing him. How do you go forward when your husband hates the new relationship that makes you happy?

    • Loving an addict is hard
    • What does N’s wife have to say about his behavior?
    • Forming feelings before meeting someone face to face is a warning sign
    • This is why addicts lose everyone before they bottom out
    • Put yourself and your safety (not your feelings) first

    601 Shifting from hierarchy to equality

    A listener in a hierarchical relationship with her nesting partner asks how to start the conversation about moving to a more egalitarian one.

    0:00 Introduction and host chat

    2:50 Poly in the news

    Folks are getting serious about creating a new poly flag

    5:00 Lusty Guy’s Politics Corner: A note to my fellow white people

    White people don’t always know what racism is, and saying “I don’t see color” or confuse intentions with outcomes are signs that you don’t understand. Whites should listen to the Black voices around you and read How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi to start understanding.

    10:00 Topic: Shifting from hierarchy to equality

    A listener has a nesting partner, and when they started, they agreed to a hierarchy. Now she has a boyfriend, and she feels forced to make her boyfriend feel like a secondary partner. How does she open up a conversation with her nesting partner about moving to a more egalitarian model?

    • Be brave and bring it up! Ask for what you want. Hear your partner’s needs without taking them personally.
    • Maybe a theoretical And then what? exercise and start doing regular check-ins, if you’re not already.
    • Equal or egalitarian? Equality or fairness? Equal respect, not equal outcomes.
    • Define “hierarchy.” Get specific about new desired behaviors.

    600 Polyamorous while Asian

    Michelle Hy is from Portland, Oregon and runs the page Polyamorous While Asian, which seeks to normalize non-monogamy through an intersectional lens and amplify the voices of other people of color.

    0:00 Introduction and host chat

    3:15 Interview: Michelle Hy

    We ask Michelle her poly origin story, how her poly and Asian identities intersect, why she started Polyamorous While Asian, the pitfalls she warns against, and dating during the pandemic. We talk about how allies must consider Asian inclusion from the beginning rather than tacking it on.

    “All relationships are political, whether or not they feel political. Because politics is just us deciding how we relate to one another, and how we feel that power should be distributed.”

    Michelle Hy is from Portland, Oregon and runs the page Polyamorous While Asian, which seeks to normalize non-monogamy through an intersectional lens and amplify the voices of other POC. She offers non-monogamy peer support sessions and also touches on topics related to body confidence, sex positivity, and more.
