The biggest roadblock to exploring ethical non-monogamy is FEAR.
"I won't be good at it, so why bother?"
"I get too jealous to ever be able to do non-monogamy."
"Doesn't non-monogamy mean cheating, though?"
"Everyone around me would judge me."
"Isn't non-monogamy all about orgies and sex parties?"
"I heard that the non-monogamous community isn't very inclusive."
"Don't you need to be super wealthy to have multiple partners?"
"My partner must be suggesting this because I'm not 'enough' for them."
Whatever YOUR fear, Andre Shakti wants to help you acknowledge it, then eradicate it. Andre has almost a decade of alternative relationship experience under her belt. As an educator, advocate, advice columnist and relationship coach for those with non-monogamous identities and practices, Andre approaches non-monogamy with love, levity, and intersectionality. This workshop is geared towards those who are in the initial stages of considering stepping outside of a monogamous framework. Bring your concerns, your compassion, and most importantly, your CURIOSITY!
Andre Shakti (she/her) is a queer cis yt sex educator, columnist and professional slut living in Baltimore, MD. She wrestles mediocre men into submission and is the reigning polyamory pundit at her non-monogamy advice column "I Am Poly(amorous) & So Can You!" She also helms SANCTUARY Virtual Strip Club, bringing LGBTQ+ dirty digital delights to private screens. She strips, she whips, and she likes dogs more than you.
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.
