“Who, as a millennial, can say they had an adequate sexual education growing up?” questions a fresh-faced Bryde MacLean while drinking a coffee in her backyard. “What emotions surrounded conversations about sex that you can remember?”
“We are just trying to normalize conversations surrounding sex,” chimes in Jeremie Saunders.
...Their newest adventure as a couple is Turn Me On, a podcast that focuses on what it means to be a sexual being in the modern world.
...However, a lot of listeners say they tune in to hear MacLean and Saunders discuss their polyamorous marriage.
The couple says a combination of marrying young, Saunders’ cystic fibrosis diagnosis, and a lot of communication and experimentation all played a part in leading them to their current lifestyle.
“If there was any part of my psychology that was waiting to do things after my life with Jeremie is over there would have been something terribly wrong with that,” says MacLean.
The couple stresses it was not something that just happened overnight and it takes a lot of work, honesty and communication because things are always continuously changing.
...“We talked about this for five years off and on, before our marriage. We had done so much ground work to get used to wrapping our heads around this idea,” says MacLean. “It was gradual and continuously adjusting.”
...The open discussion about the lifestyle and sex in general has gotten Halifax buzzing.
...I was met with numerous squeals of excitement while fishing around for Turn Me On feedback. Apparently, all Halifax needed was a podcast talking about people getting their feet jizzed on, enjoying being called daddy, or waxing their butts to spark some interesting and educational conversation. ...
...On the listener side of things, it seems most issues arise when one part of a couple tunes in and another doesn’t.
