Non-Monogamy 101: Being an 'Ethical Slut'

In this workshop, psychotherapist Rachel Wright will introduce the class to non-monogamy. Learn what it is and common misconceptions about non-monogamous relationships. This is part 1 of our 3-part series with Rachel Wright on navigating different aspects of non-monogamy and polyamory. Check out Part 2 & Part 3.

One of the challenging parts of adopting a non-monogamous lifestyle is unlearning the beliefs of compulsory monogamy that we are all taught growing up, such as "you can only love one person at a time" or "having multiple sex partners makes you a sl*t". Another challenge? Managing more than one relationship at a time!

Rachel will tackle all these issues and more, teaching you how to:

  • Start the process of unlearning old beliefs
  • Shed stigma and embrace your inner sl*t
  • Behave ethically when dating/having sex with multiple partners

And stick around for a Q+A at the end!

This event will be recorded and sent out to ticket holders within a few days after the live stream.
