Welcome to Poly.Land, where we try our darnedest to give the best relationship advice we can — regardless of your relationship style — and have fun doing it.
In Poly Land, we not only tell you that the emperor is naked. We take compromising photos of him while we’re at it.
I’m Page Turner, the author of two books: A Geek’s Guide to Unicorn Ranching and Poly Land: My Brutally Honest Adventures in Polyamory. I’ve been cited as a relationship expert in a variety of media publications including The Huffington Post, Glamour, Self, and Bustle.
I’m also a relationship coach who specializes in alternative relationships, especially clientele who are non-monogamous and/or BDSM practitioners. I’m a psychological researcher and active member in Cleveland polyamorous and kink circles. But I grew up in the Maine woods.
In addition to my days as a psych nerd, I have worked as a jazz musician, editor, playwright, poet, newspaper reporter, medical transcriptionist, and organizational behavior (workplace psychology) consultant.
A wholesome slut and polymath, I consider myself ambiamorous, meaning that I’m a person who can be happy having either polyamorous or monogamous relationships (it really all depends on the situation). That said, I have been in polyamorous relationships for over a decade. Things are pretty stable these days with the fabulous Justin Case (a.k.a. Skyspook in some of my older posts) as an anchor partner and with my girlfriend Ro, but the early days had a lot of ups and downs. The downs have taught me just as much – and arguably a lot more – than the ups. I am a ruthful (but not ruthless) pragmatist.
I occasionally review products. Please see my disclosures if you’re interested.
