Authentically Kinky (formerly known as What Women and Other Wonderful Humans Want)
Nookie - Take No Sh!t - A look at Boundaries
June 6, 2023
The founder of DatingKinky and the woman who helped me create this show, Nookie, joins us to discuss her upcoming book "Take No Sh!t: building Better relationships through discovering, creating and maintaining healthy boundaries in three (sometime fiveP easy steps." We also talk about the progress of this show and its future.
Excerpt from the book (You can download sample chapters here!):

In the past 15 years, I’ve delved deep into improving my personal life and relationships, leading to a strong passion for healthy boundaries.

Boundaries touch on every aspect of interacting with humans, from work to friendships to romance, and everything in between. Even more so in “alternative lifestyles.”

I’ve discovered that boundaries make everything…just better and that a good set of personal boundaries can save you a lifetime of trouble.


I look forward to sharing this journey with you.

So, just who am I to be writing this book?

Hi! I’m Heather. Most people call me Nookie.

Why Nookie? Well, short story, back when I was younger, some friends and I were looking up naughty words in the Oxford English Dictionary, and discovered 
that nookie (or nooky) was Scottish slang from the 1940s for a sexually attractive woman.

They dubbed me “The Nookie,” and “Nookie” stuck,


As you might guess, I’ve lived an atypical life.
• I’ve hitchhiked across the country.
• I’ve traveled and worked in a carnival for a season.
• I’ve roamed New York City with street people.
• I’ve explored (and taught) alternative lifestyles.
• I’m nonmonogamous.

I’ve learned a lot through my journey about boundaries.
