Kink is one of those very tricky topics. Some view it as sexual perversion. Others view it as freeing, but are shamed that they like something. However, Kink as a whole is much more common than you may realize. A recent study found that over 40% of Americans surveyed self identified as having particular kink or fetish. Much like poly, the problem for couples can arise when one expresses curiosity and the other person has some aversion or kinkphobia. If you are curious, I can help.
The idea of a polyamorous relationship scares many people. Yet one of the top sexual fantasies in the United States is having multiple sexual partners at once. That is not to say all poly relationship are sexual threesome or moresome. There are many different types and flavors of poly relationships. A huge relational conflict can arise when one person admits poly curiosity and the other has strict views of monogamy. I can help navigate and negotiate the turmoil between the couple.

The last thing anyone wants to hear is that all their problems are happening just because of who they are and who they love.
