Is Consensual Non-Monogamy Right for You?

Consensual Non-Monogamy (CNM) has gained in popularity quite a bit recently. Recent studies found that 30% of men and 20% of women in the U.S. currently in a relationship have some level of openness and 50% of men and 30% of women described their ideal relationship as “somewhat open.”

This recent video produced by ATTN about polyamory has received almost 3 million views in just a few months. It is clear that Non-Monogamy is being talked about and explored more now than ever:

While CNM relationships can have some wonderful pros, at least for some people, they also carry with them a heightened level of complexity and risk. Not everyone is going to find CNM easy to navigate and for some it may prove more trouble than it is worth. There is always a risk of heartbreak, emotional conflict, and there are many pitfalls worth avoiding. If you’re interested in this exploration, I want you to be as prepared as possible to handle the potential issues, and keep you from getting disenchanted before you give it a real try.

When embarking on a CNM relationship, you have to first understand yourself; There are personal and relationship characteristics that I’ve found in #legitsexscience research that can help to increase your chance of success and make the transition as smooth as possible!

I’ve put together a video with three essential questions you should ask yourself in order to help determine whether CNM is right for you. These questions are part of my paid class “Consensual Non-Monogamy Right for You?: Ten Questions to Help You Find Out” but if you share your email below, I’ll send you this video for free!

I’ll also include a special Non-Monogamy Quiz to help you identify the emotional and relationship skills crucial to success in exploring Non-Monogamy. This quiz was created by relationship coach Effy Blue, who has spent her career nurturing and guiding non-monogamous relationships. It is a wonderful tool and I use it as part of the full-length class.

There are 7 other questions I believe are critical for people to ask themselves about when deciding whether CNM is right and easy for them. If you found this video useful and you’d like to learn about the rest of them, I have a 90-min video that covers this in detail. You can get it by …? For only $7!

  • “Love” At First Sight Is Actually Simply Lust At First Sight

    “Love at first sight” (LAFS) is a common trope we see in film and television everywhere, but you may be surprised to hear that this phenomenon isn’t actually what it seems. Every third person reports that they’ve experienced this at least once, and LAFS can certainly be a good thing for a couple. Those who remember starting their relationships with LAFS report more passion toward their partners than people who didn’t remember feeling LAFS, and more passion is linked to higher relationship satisfaction and stability. But this experience of “love” may not be the type of “love” we normally think of, and it’s

    We love talking about sex, but what about sex during pregnancy and after childbirth? Goes Deeper Earlier this year, two researchers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha published a review paper summarizing what we know from research about sexual behaviors during pregnancy and the year after childbirth. They combed through 56 empirical studies published in the academic literature since 1996, and found that, in general, there was a gradual decline in vaginal intercourse over the course of pregnancy and the first couple of months post-childbirth.
