Cheers Sex People!
I am pumped up to share with you our latest podcast episode here at Loving Without Boundaries! This is the second podcast interview with my good friend, nonmonogamy consultant and partner in crime, Wry from A Wry Perspective. Having gained experience in multiple forms of non-monogamous relationship over the past 13 years, Wry advocates awareness and dialogue regarding the options and alternatives to the hetero-normative marriage-minded, and traditional way of life.
In this episode, we dive into the deep end of the pool on the concept of hierarchies in non-monogamous arrangements – specifically Descriptive Hierarchy and Prescriptive Hierarchy. We discuss and question whether there should be any hierarchy among partners at all, if we should simply describe the hierarchy as it currently exists, OR if we should try to maintain a specific hierarchy based on pre-conceived notions. Come listen in and join the conversation!
Thank you Wry, for being so generous with your time, and for sharing your thoughts and insights with us via the podcast interview! It was totally awesome and inspirational! Let’s do it again soon.

I’m just getting around to listening to this episode and am quite enjoying it. There was a question on the difference between Relationship Anarchy and Non-Hierarchical Polyamory, with both saying the felt they were the same but weren’t entirely sure. This was actually a question that just came up in conversation recently, and I stumbled on this article (https://thethinkingasexual.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/relationship-anarchy-vs-nonhierarchical-polyamory/) which made a lot of sense to me.
The general gist, which sounded pretty sympathetic to what y’all were saying, is that polyamory tends to focus on romantic and sexual relationships (with non-hierarchical polyamory saying there shouldn’t be a prescribed hierarchy of romantic partners) whereas RA focuses on ALL kinds of relationships (and avoids a prescribed hierarchy of connections, rather than privileging romantic/sexual ones or making a firm line between “platonic” friends and romantic partners).
Thank you so much for your thorough and thoughtful comment here about this podcast episode. I really enjoyed capturing it with Wry. He is an awesome dude with some amazing ideas to share. I am so glad that you enjoyed it! Yay! We will try to do more podcast episodes like that. Thanks for the feedback. Thanks for sharing the link to that article. I will indeed check it out, and I appreciate the information being shared here. And I also appreciate the quick cliff notes that you gave here about the content. That makes sense to me and is generally what I was thinking as well. You rock!
