It seems everyone’s talking about non-monogamous relationships these days. Polyamory has recently been featured on prime time news shows, magazine covers and reality TV programs. If you’ve thought about exploring some form of non-monogamy, you’ve probably wondered:
Is there a difference between and open relationship and a polyamorous one? How do swinging and group sex factor in? What is the appropriate way to approach someone for a threesome? How is jealousy managed with multiple partners? Isn’t “open-relationship” just a fancy term for cheating? Are people poly because they like to have lots of sex? How I talk to my partner about opening up our relationship? What happens if I get jealous?
There is no magic formula for an open relationship or one right way to be poly. In this workshop Ken and Sunny explain different types of non-monogamous relationships and give you tools to craft and maintain a relationship that’s right for you (and them!).
This class is through Chicago’s Meow University
And will take place at:
Good Gyrrl Studio
1200 W 35th St
Chicago, IL 60609

She particularly enjoys helping those curious about adding a little spice to their sex lives that aren’t sure where to begin.
About this event
Just how much does a kink educator get paid to teach adults about BDSM? Is it an hourly rate? Minimum wage? Or maybe less? Many people are often surprised to find out how pay works in the world of kink education, especially once they calculate just how much it can cost to travel to conventions where they teach. In this panel we’ll be joined by a few of your favorite experienced kink educators who will share their tips and tricks for kink education marketing, negotiation, and budgeting so they’re most likely to have some income (instead of deficit).
Due to the adult nature of the classes, all attendees must be at least 18 years of age. By obtaining a ticket you agree that you meet this minimum age requirement. Any under-age persons will be removed from the class/discussion.
