Poly + Kinky: Incorporating Polyamory, Power Exchange & BDSM

January 24, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Into or interested in both polyamory and power exchange? Worried it will never work? Don’t worry, it can and does work for many people!

Into or interested in both polyamory and power exchange? Worried it will never work? Don’t worry, it can and does work for many people in both the kink and poly communities every day! It’s a little more complicated than just doing one or the other but both poly and kinky people seem to love complicated (myself included)!

We will start at the beginning, a quick overview of the basics of polyamory – this workshop is designed for the kinkster wanting to add poly. You will get some definitions and ideas of different styles of poly so that you’re better able to choose a relationship structure that works best for you.

Next up are some ideas about how to broach the subject with an existing or potential partner as well as advice on how to negotiate your ideal arrangement. We will then get into the nitty-gritty of poly & kinky arrangements, the practical side to how all this works. Wrapping things up with some troubleshooting, both general issues that people encounter like jealousy or conflicting rules, as well as questions from participants.

This workshop is presented in gender-neutral terms and does not assume the gender/sexual orientation of participants or relationships in general. Everyone is welcome, both single and partnered.

Presenter Bio:

Morgan Thorne has been practising BDSM all her adult life. She got an introduction to kink through the Queer community in the early 1990s and knew she had found ‘her people’.

Morgan has also spent a decade working as a Professional Dominant, which has allowed her to expand her skills as both a Top and a Dominant. Morgan has been offering workshops, lectures and BDSM training for a number of years as well. She has a successful Youtube channel where she educates about D/s relationships, BDSM basics and various kinky skills.

She is the author of two successful books about BDSM, including “Exploring BDSM: A Workbook for Couples (or More!) Discovering Kink“. A follow-up book is expected in early 2021.

Morgan identifies as both a Sadist and a Dominant. She enjoys playing with a variety of people of all orientations/genders/identities. BDSM is an integral part of her personal, romantic relationships. Morgan is both asexual and pan-romantic.

Prior to her work as a Professional Dominant, Morgan worked in health care. This has allowed her to gain a more thorough understanding of health and safety concerns in kink. She retired due to an injury that lead to chronic pain and disability. It also spurred her interest in medical play, a way to continue to use the skills she learned in health care and to find comfort in the loss of a much-loved career.

Morgan has been active in various forms of activism, including LGBTQIA rights and sex worker rights. She is a strong advocate for equality and the human rights of all people.
