#048: Let’s Be Honest – Poly Sex Should Be Great Sex

We love talking and teaching about relationships, but sometimes you just gotta talk about sex. In the poly world, sometimes sexual partners may be other romantic partners, and other times they are friends with benefits. Today, we take a deep dive on the reasons folks may want to have casual sex, the conversations that must take place between a couple before you begin talking with other people, and what folks tend to screw up. Then we give some pro tips on both negotiating casual sex and how to handle that sex while it’s going down.

Our Secret Weapon for Overcoming Mismatched Libidos

The DesireMap is a life-changing tool that allows partners to communicate exactly what they’re in the mood for and how much they want it without saying a word. It keeps the higher sex drive partner from constantly asking for sex and feeling like they’re pressuring their partner, allows the lower sex drive partner to enjoy the activities they’re in the mood for without worrying their partner is going to press for more, and prevents the many opportunities for intimacy that are missed simply because one partner doesn’t know the other was in the mood. In this post, we’re going to walk you step-by-step through how to create a DesireMap of your very own.
