What Is Polyamory?
Basically, polyis a Greek word meaning many, and amor is a Latin word meaning love: thus, polyamory means many loves. However, in practice, polyamory (sometimes referred to as poly) is often defined as consensual non-monogamy, which is an open, honest, transparent agreement among partners to love more than one.
What Is Kink?
Kink is an umbrella term that covers sexual practices outside the accepted “norm,” such as BDSM, leather and other fetishes. BDSM includes consensual bondage and discipline (B&D), dominance and submission (D&S), and sadism and masochism (S&M). Whatever the kink, the community’s common value is that erotic power exchange is okay as long as it’s “safe and consensual.”
Sex Positive Therapy for Kink and Polyamory
We recognize that as we endeavor to live in any relationship, we often need more support and help than our culture and extended social networks may provide. We also know that when attempting to live in a non-mainstream relationship, we may face special difficulties and challenges that sometimes complicate or aggravate our personal lives.
At Transformation Counseling Center our clinicians are Sex-positive therapists who embrace the idea that consensual sexual activities are fundamentally healthy and pleasurable. While emphasizing personal responsibility between consenting adults, safe sex practices and respect for individual limits and preferences. We support clients in exploring their sexuality, experimenting sexually and discovering what works for them. Sex-positivity therapy allows for and, in fact, celebrates sexual diversity, differing desires and relationships structures, and individual choices based on consent between or among partners.
Our clinicians have many years of experience working with diverse relationship structures. If you are seeking support to find more fulfillment and acceptance for yourself and/or your relationship, we can help. Contact us for a free consultation
