Recorded in the UK, with guests from around the globe, journalist and broadcaster Jonathan Kent and psychotherapist Zayna Ratty discuss relationships and sexuality beyond the mainstream. Beyond Monogamy is a podcast that looks at how we can do relationships differently, whether that involves consensual non monogamy, from swinging and monogamish to polyamory and relationship anarchy, or simply by rewriting the rules of monogamy to suit ourselves. The programme also explores and celebrates expressions of human sexuality in different forms from kink, fetish and BDSM, to ace, demi- and pan- sexuality, LGBTQIA+ and beyond. If the way you relate, love and have sex doesn’t fit neatly into the traditional mould then Beyond Monogamy is for you.
