Kamala Devi is a bisexual Latin woman of Jewish descent who was raised between conservative Orange County and a ranch in Mexico. Throughout college, she produced a handful of feminist-themed plays and was a gay and lesbian activist. She founded the first bisexual and lesbian women’s discussion group at her university.
Before she even heard the word polyamory, her college girlfriend pointed out that she was in love with a male yoga teacher and she began dating them both… After graduation, she moved to a drumming commune in Hawaii where she directed the lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual Pride festival of Honolulu in 1997. She met a professional dominatrix who introduced her to the world of kink.
After a spontaneous sexual awakening on the islands, she began backpacking and studying yoga throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, and China. When she returned to California, she met her life partner, Michael, at a Valentine’s puja in San Diego.

The 2004 Sumatran Tsunami struck the very beaches where they were at the exact moment their airplane lifted off.
