KamalaDevi McClure’s Personal Bio:
KamalaDevi 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, Bisexual and Transgender Pride festival of Honolulu (LGBT Pride) 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.
Together they took a tantric pilgrimage to South India to study goddess worship from a guru who channels Kali. The 2004 Sumatran Tsunami struck the very beaches where they were at the exact moment their airplane lifted off. This event inspired KamalaDevi’s first novel, Don’t Drink the Punch: An Adventure in Tantra.
When pregnant, they bought a beach house that Michael converted into an eco-friendly temple where they home-birthed their son Devin Echo McClure. He is now an 11 years old, a musician and scientist. Devin is proud to be raised in a polyamorous family with a variety of live-in lovers who were featured on Showtime’s docu-series, Polyamory: Married and Dating which ran for 2 seasons.
