We are very excited to bring this episode to you all. Not only because it is a great to have Allena back with us (listen to her on Episode 31), because we love her! It is because the subject of polyamory is such a lively discussion.
In between our usual antics, we spend a lot of time discussing what it is and what it isn’t. What it means to us and what it can mean to other people. If you are not aligned to polyamory at all you are still going to find the discussion fascinating. It was a fun time and I can’t wait to get this to you!
This is part 1 of the discussion, we have part 2 for later in the week!

About Our Guest
Allena Gabosch has served as Executive Director of the Center for Sex Positive Culture since its founding in 1999. She has been active in the sex positive movement practically from its beginning, and says she’s “busy creating sex positive culture on a daily basis!” Allena has been producing educational and social events for the sex positive community since 1990. She co-owned and ran Beyond the Edge Cafe in the mid-1990s, providing a modest space for parties and workshops, until they closed their doors in 1999. It was then that Jim Duvall approached her with the idea of the Center and asked her to be its Executive Director.
She is a frequent speaker on many sex positive subjects at colleges and conferences around the United States and Canada, with an emphasis on BDSM and polyamory. In addition, she is the Festival Producer for the Seattle Erotic Art Festival. She is a past board member of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. In the Spring of 2008, Allena was appointed to the Seattle Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Commission. Allena is a bisexual, poly switch and considers herself extremely blessed as she has a rich and full poly life, with many amazing and loving people in her “polycule”. In her less than mundane non-kinky life, she is active in Landmark Education, loves theater, good food, walking around Seattle and hopes to run for Seattle City Council in a few years.
