Which Version of Consensual Non-Monogamy is Right For You?

Are you interested in exploring Polyamory or just want to understand more about it? Then this class is for you. First defining Consensual Non-Monogamy (CNM) and contrasting it with cheating/adultery, Eli then explains types of Consensual Non-Monogamy: Open Relationships, Polygamy, Swinging, Polyamory, Monogamish Relationships, and Relationship Anarchy, who tends to select each lovestyle, what makes them work well, some common pitfalls, and how to avoid them.


Session 2, 7:00 – 9:00pm

$20 advance/$25 walk-in (Both Sessions $30 advance)

Strategies for Managing Jealousy

Drawing on years of interviews and participant observation, Eli identifies common triggers for jealousy in monogamish and open relationships, some reasons polyamorous people seem to welcome them, and what happens when jealousy becomes difficult to manage. Sheff closes with strategies that have worked to manage jealousy, as well as some that fail.

There will be time for questions and discussion after each talk.
