Open Relationships 101 with Tristan Taormino
Sunday, April 24th — 7:30 p.m. — $25 — Q Center (3 blocks north of She Bop at 4115 N. Mississippi)
Are you considering an open relationship? Does your current open relationship need some tweaking? There are few established scripts or visible role models for open relationships, so people in them can struggle without support and guidance. In this interactive workshop, Tristan Taormino (relationship expert and author of Opening Up) will give practical advice on how to craft responsible, fulfilling non-monogamous relationships.
Tristan will explore common myths, real-life benefits and challenges, and how to decide if an open relationship is right for you. She will share some of the most common styles of open relationships — from partnered non-monogamy to solo polyamory — and discuss how to customize them to meet your individual needs and wants. Through creative exercises, you’ll learn to articulate what you want, identify and negotiate limits and boundaries, communicate with your partner(s) in productive ways, and create relationships that work for you.
