Another podcast interview!

A couple weeks back, I had the opportunity to meet Shira B. Katz of the Pedestrian Polyamory podcast. What followed was a conversation about polyamory, transhumanism, mad science, programmable sex toys, and all sorts of other stuff, which you can listen to here.

The interview was great fun. I’d definitely love to do it again.

  1. thanks for the heads up to this podcast 🙂

    listening….so far it’s pretty fun- looks like I needto add a podcast to my podcast list 😉

    I especially appreciate the fact that the hosts have a sex drought- unlike the folks who aren’t poly that don’t get the possibility that it’s VERY possible to be poly & have a sex drought *lol*

    I disagree by the way. you do NOT sound like Kit ;). But you do have a very nice voice.

    I so agree with your assessment of long distance as rubbish! lol!

    hehehe- I have friends in Portland :). should I tell them about your parties?
    probably need to listen again to GET transhumanism. any chance you might write a post on the topic?

  3. Re: STD testing as a safe sex method?

    If one does not want to be a partner to someone who enjoys a sexuality that isn’t palatable to their sensibilities, then they are always free to leave.

    I have a partner who enjoys a sexuality that I don’t personally enjoy. He likes swinging. I don’t. But I don’t mind him having casual sex–I just don’t want it for myself. I certainly want to be a partner to him, but I also want to protect the health of my own body (and he wants to protect both his and mine). It has nothing to do with being “palatable to my sensibilities.” It has everything to do with wanting to avoid illness, and also wanting to protect the health of my other long-term partner.

    We certainly don’t “quibble over tests.” I have asked him to wear condoms with anyone who isn’t a long-term, tested partner. And he has happily agreed.

    If he believed that having bareback sex with strangers was more important to him than my sexual health, then I would opt to end our sexual relationship. But the fact that he enjoys a sexuality that’s different than mine isn’t, in fact, more important to either of us than the health and safety of our long-term partner(s).

    This isn’t about being grossed out by a partner’s sexual interests. It’s about choosing the level of risk one is comfortable with, and everyone should have that freedom.
