Challenging Non-Monogamy Myths

It’s no secret that the mainstream view of non-monogamy is generally less than favorable. However, even within the non-monogamy community, there are often strong and sometimes divisive opinions on how you should be loving, connecting, and relating. Emma and Fin compare some of these “shoulds” to the real-life experiences of the 400+ non-monogamous people they’ve interviewed for their podcast in hopes of dispelling the narrative that there is a “right way” to be non-monogamous. This interactive workshop will blend storytelling with opportunities to share your own experiences in small groups.

All of these “shoulds” can lead us to feelings of deep shame and guilt around our own desires and practices. We'll be going over and facilitating in-depth discussions on the following myths:

  • The myth that you have to know everything about non-monogamy to get started
  • The myth that you must have multiple relationships to be non-monogamous
  • The myth that you must go at the same speed or have the same style as your partner
  • The myth that it's all about sex

After taking this workshop you will come away with a stronger sense of community and support, not feeling so alone. You'll be able to practice skipping the small talk and jumping into deeper discussions with others. This workshop is primarily discussion based. It will be recorded and sent out to participants after the event.
