Cheers Sexy People!
It is with great pleasure that I announce our latest podcast interview! This fun, interesting and informative interview is with a poly-friendly therapist that I have known from a distance for years, Tamara Pincus. Thanks to our wonderful community and producing this podcast, we finally got to meet in person – and she is simply lovely! Tamara also is very well connected, I must say, and highly engaged in the local kink, BDSM, and poly community. I am so impressed with all of her efforts to educate, inform, assist and generally rock the issues that she is passionate about.
To learn more, here is Tamara’s official bio from her website:
Tamara Pincus is a licensed clinical social worker with over 12 years of experience in mental health treatment. She has maintained a private practice specializing in sex therapy since 2011.

She has provided individual, relationship as well as group treatment and assessment to a diverse group of clients in terms of race, sexual orientation, gender orientation and presenting problems. Tamara also speaks at conferences around sexuality and mental health treatment issues.

Help some brothers and sisters out by digging down deep, enjoying some self-expression, and telling it like it is! They are taking submissions through the month of August only – yes, this month! So get your submissions in please by August 31st, 2016! Here’s a brief description:
Coming Out Poly is an upcoming book designed to provide support and encouragement for people in the process of coming out as poly or in a non-monogamous relationship and the people who love them. We feel the best way to understand how coming out really works is to ask you for your experience. We are gathering stories about a wide variety of situations from a group of people who we hope will be diverse with regards to religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, age and economic status.
Awesome, awesome! I cannot wait for this book to come out! Thank you Tamara, for being so generous with your time, for being an activist fighting for the rights of all of us here at Loving Without Boundaries, and for sharing your thoughts and insights with us via the podcast interview! It was totally amazing, entertaining and inspirational! Let’s do it again soon. Follow Tamara’s work at tamarapincus.com and please consider entering your “coming out poly” story by clicking here.
