Are you intellectually on board with non-monogamy but struggling to get your body and heart on the same page? Does the phrase "I want this but I feel like I'm going to die" (from Clementine Morrigan's zine Love Without Emergency) resonate with you? This is a class for the folks who really want to practice ethical non-monogamy, but are struggling with the practical application of it.
Jealousy, fear, panic, anxiety, and past relationship traumas can sneak into our present-day relationships and make us feel like the world is crumbling. But there's hope! Tuck Malloy, a queer non-binary sex educator who has been practicing non-monogamy for the entirety of their adult life, will guide you through practical tools, resources, and insights for strengthening communication, calming the nervous system, and cultivating a relationship that fits best for your unique situation, in a compassionate, open-hearted manner.
This class is founded on the principle that there is hope for those of us who struggle in non-monogamy, even if the road ahead is rocky, and purposefully pushes against narratives that some of us just aren't good enough at non-monogamy to do it right. Non-monogamy may not be the right fit for you, but this class is for those of us that (for now) want to keep trying!
You'll notice that we're offering two class cost options - $25, the regular cost of a She Bop class or workshop, and $15, a reduced cost option. While we want to make sure our instructors are compensated fairly for their hard work, we recognize that many of our community members are experiencing alterations to their finances at this time. If you are able to pay full price, we ask that you please consider doing so. If the lower cost option is a more accessible fit for you at this time, we encourage you to utilize that option.
