Dedeker Winston was raised to be a wholesome Christian conservative but later opted to be a sex-positive polyamory activist, writer, and relationship coach. She currently provides one-on-one coaching services for people transitioning into non-monogamy and is one of the hosts of the Multiamory podcast.
She has been sought out as an expert on alternative relationships for Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Newsweek, Vice, Bustle, and also appeared on the FOX television show Utopia. Her book, The Smart Girl’s Guide to Polyamory: Everything You Need to Know About Open Relationships, Non-Monogamy, and Alternative Love (Skyhorse Publishing), debuted in February 2017. When she isn't coaching, writing, modeling, or spending time with her multiple partners, she enjoys backpacking around the globe, playing video games, and obsessively applying chapstick.
