AT THE INTERSECTION OF POLYAMORY AND KINK


 Francesca Guido

            How is it that I see so many of my poly friends at BDSM events – and vice versa?  Is it that once you have broken one taboo, others are more easily broken?  Or is it that the communities mingle in solidarity?

            How do poly folk handle it when one partner is kinky? (And what is “kinky”?) How do kinky folk handle it when partners have different BDSM interests?  Can you acknowledge a Master-slave bond and still be poly? How is knowing your partner is engaging in kink behavior with another different than knowing they are engaging in sexual/romantic behavior elsewhere?
