Beyond Monogamy

Thursday, October 9th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

 

A growing number of people are exploring alternatives to monogamy, through swinging, polyamory, and other types of open relationships. If you or someone you know are one of those people, this might be the workshop for you!

 

Whether you are curious about opening up, already enjoying polyamory and wanting to do it even better, or facing obstacles in your non-monogamous relationship, AJ will help walk you through the challenges and benefits of ethical non-monogamy. She will discuss different styles of open relationships, talk about how to deal with common issues such as jealousy, resentment, time management, miscommunication, and New Relationship Energy (NRE), and will offer tips on dating/meeting new people, navigating different relationship structures and hierarchies, and coming out poly.

 

In this interactive workshop, AJ will guide participants through exercises that help them negotiate agreements/boundaries, design their own ideal open relationships, and practice nonviolent communication for deeper, more fulfilling connections. There will also be the option to hear about real-life triumphs and tribulations of other non-mono people in addition to learning how to find and build community. This is a 2-hour class.

 

AJ (aka Amory Jane) is one of She Bop's in-house sex educators. She graduated with a master's degree from Lewis & Clark College, where she studied Sex Therapy and Marriage, Couple, & Family Counseling. She has facilitated multiple discussion groups and taught dozens of sex education workshops around Portland and the Midwest.

Mutual Masturbation: Give Yourself a Hand!

Sunday, October 12th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

 

Casual or long-term relationships of all kinds can benefit from new skills or from re-framing old ones. In this class, Elle Chase will talk about how solo and partnered play is an erotic activity that's not only smokin' hot, but can intimately connect you with your partner, whether you've been together 20 years or 20 minutes.

 

This class will encourage you to discover and explore new areas of your sexual appetite safely, while working at your most comfortable pace. Whatever your sexual identity or gender preference, new lovers, experienced lovers, and novices alike will learn a new (or improved) trick or two to add to their sexual repertoire.

 

Elle Chase is passionate about passion. A Los Angeles sex educator, writer, speaker and coach, Elle focuses on positive body image, reigniting sexual expression, and better sex after 40. She speaks at sexuality conferences, gives workshops across the country, and publishes erotica and sexuality articles.
