57: Science of Non-Monogamy
A while ago, we worked with Analisa Murphy who did a scientific study to better understand the effects of non-monogamy (or any kind of open relationship) on relationships and sexual satisfaction. This is now completed, so it was time for an interview to chat about the learnings.
She also explains her personal journey into swinging, from getting married at an early age to leaving the Mormon religion and the impact this has on her life, her kids and her sexuality.
We talk about:
* The danger of "no sex before marriage" and the damage it can do before discovering polyamory. * There are tricks mormons use to go swinger parties without anybody noticing.* Being gay in the Mormon church, getting kicked out for getting AIDS.

Shout-out to podcast "Two or More to Tango"
Candid and honest nature of this show is really vital and important I think. As a matter of personal preference, I would prefer the conversations to be a little more structured, maybe moving from topic to topic instead of just recounting experiences. But given the subject matter, there’s definitely something to be said for normalizing things by just discussing them casually. Definitely worth exploring.
I’m not too into this kinky stuff but this podcast is really well done and engaging. The hosts work really well with each other and the subject matter is interesting, to say the least!
The Bliss Bringers certainly set the bar high for lifestyle podcasting! One of our top 3 as we entered the lifestyle. Funny, honest and very educational….did I mention sexy? Keep up the good work!
