Alternatives to Monogamy
Sat, Aug 11 from 1pm - 3pm
For many years, western culture and media has portrayed having romantic exclusivity and 'one true love' as an ideal to strive for in our love lives. There's nothing wrong with monogamy, but what if we stopped assuming monogamy as a default for relationship dynamics? With limited representation or education on alternatives, how do we know what a healthy non-monogamous relationship looks like? What are the other options, and how do we begin to explore them?
In this lecture/discussion based class we'll explore the different relationships styles other than monogamy such as open relationships, swinging, polyamory, and relationship anarchy. You can expect to discuss boundaries, agreements, jealousy, healthy communication and more!
All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.
Cost at the door: $35.
No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
