Amory 85 | Seeking Equal Parental Rights in Polyamorous Family Structures

1/25/2024
Jackie Titus shares her polyamorous journey over the last few years, with the main focus of how she and her 2 partners sought 3-way legal custody of their baby boy. Jackie also shares about her challenging coming out process as both bi-sexual and polyamorous, coming from a religious background that does not support either of these. I'm sure you'll see why I asked Jackie to share her story...she's a wonderful example of what can happen when you believe something's possible AND take action to make it so! She and her partners are stepping into new legal territory as trailblazers and I'm sure there will be many to follow. If you want to reach Jackie directly (with questions or as a professional voice coach): IG: @genuinelyjackied LA-based Birthing center: IG: @gracefullbirth She recommended listening to a previous Amory podcast - here are the additional show notes from that show with Dr. Heath Schechinger.

"Everything you think you know about kink, throw it out the window!" - Sunny Megatron I am LOVING the conversation I had with Sunny Megatron, host of American Sex podcast, where we dig deep into the essence of kink.

She’s the host & executive producer of the Showtime original series, Sex with Sunny Megatron, co-hosts AASECT Award-winning American Sex Podcast and Open Deeply Podcast, and was 2021's XBIZ Sexpert of the Year.

Amory 77 | Creating Safety in Mind & Body (messages with @bustout_dojo)

5/21/2023
This episode of Amory is very different! It's actually an exchange of WhatsApp messaging with a friend who was sharing a major breakthrough in his healing journey. He describes the moment he realized the pattern between his emotions, and his thoughts...not getting overly identified with them, nor denying them. The ability to "be with" both his emotions and thoughts is creating the space for him to see himself as the loving witness. From that place, he is free to act instead of react, and therefore create the life he truly desires. I am sharing this because his realization is raw and authentic and may support you on your journey of relating (with yourself and others). After I recorded the beginning and ending of this episode, my friend Dojo created an account so you can reach him on Instagram - @bustout_dojo. If you are called to send him a direct message - please do! If you are interested in the 6-month group program, please message megan@amorypodcast.com or DM @amorypodcast It starts June 12th and runs through mid-November with bi-weekly meetings, bi-weekly one-on-one's, weekly videos/exercises, group support and will catalyze your relating to the next level! There are a few spaces left so message ASAP to learn more!
