What Is American Sex? 

On American Sex Sunny Megatron & Ken Melvoin-Berg deep-dive into guests unique experiences with sexuality, gender, and identity. Some stories are very intimate.

Every story has one thing in common-- the very blurred line between what’s personal and what touches us all. Featuring an eclectic mix of guests from all walks of life, American Sex podcast will have you rolling on the floor with laughter and learning a lot at the same time.

Kevin Patterson talks about his new book Love's Not Color Blind: Race and Representation in Polyamorous and Other Alternative Communities. We delve into how to figure out what you don’t know, being more inclusive in your community, balancing masculinity and non-monogamy, how the political climate has changed social interaction, light-skinned privilege, forced ambassadorship, those damn pink pussy hats & more. Ken & Sunny answer a listener question about g-spot play. Kevin’s bonus story (with a surprise, twist ending!) is at

Guest Bio

Kevin Patterson is an active member of the Philadelphia polyamory community. He's been practicing ethical nonmonogamy since August of 2002 after opening up a relationship that eventually became his marriage.

In April of 2015, Kevin was inspired to start Poly Role Models, an interview series for people describing their experiences with polyamory. Poly Role Models is part of a drive and a desire to change the way our lives and communities are viewed. It is currently the most diverse and inclusive platform for polyamory available.

To continue the discussion of polyamorous representation, Kevin has extended the blog's work into nationwide speaking engagements about how race and polyamory intersect. This has led to the writing of the book, Love's Not Color Blind: Race and Representation in Polyamorous and Other Alternative Communities.
