10:45 Topic: When hierarchies collide

S is new to poly and started dating one guy, Matt, who wanted a primary + more structure (he’s divorced with kids and anti-marriage). Then she started dating Luke, who is unmarried and wants to be married. So Matt rushed off to find himself a fresh, new primary as she contemplates marriage to Luke.

Any advice on dealing with hierarchies when they aren’t serving anyone well?

6:40 Topic: are hierarchies getting a bad rap?

Self-identified secondary and youth correspondent cohost Koe Creation shares her thoughts on hierarchies, wondering whether many folks’ disdain for them is unfounded. What’s the difference between a hierarchy and simply acknowledging that a person with whom you share children and finances is different from someone you date twice a month, after all?

L shares a delightful happy poly moment about her experiences with self-identifying as asexual in the poly space and finding a partner and a metamour that work well with her.
