We live in a world that glorifies monogamy and vilifies non-monogamy. Yet many of us fail miserably in our attempts to remain completely sexually and emotionally monogamous with long-term partners, suggesting that some re-evaluation of our beliefs might be in order.
This coming Tuesday (May 27), I will give an hour long talk (plus 20 minutes for questions) for Open Love NY, the largest polyamorous community on the East Coast, that will examine the social science research around how much truth behind the stereotypes that monogamy is better (and non-monogamy is worse). I’ll specifically focus on people’s sexual satisfaction, prevention of STIs, relationship quality, raising children, and social and emotional well-being.
When: May 27 at 7:30 pm
Where: Manhattan Theater Club
