Why do some relationships fail even when it seems like you’re perfect for each other? How can you tell if someone is going to be a good fit for you, or you for them? In this workshop we’ll investigate the many facets of compatibility in polyamory, from sexual and romantic desires to logistical planning and metamour relationships.
Consent for Polyamory
Polyamorous relationship structures come in all shapes and sizes, each one negotiated with its own allowances and limits… but how do we make sure those boundaries are clear to everyone involved? Consent is a huge part of what makes our non-monogamy ethical, but what can we do to ensure that our consent is adequately informed? In this workshop we’ll share tips and techniques for communicating your needs and making sure that everyone is on the same page, and we’ll learn how to avoid common pitfalls.
Redefining Virginity for a Sex-Positive World
What does it mean to be a virgin? How did virginity become so important to contemporary western spirituality and society in the first place? In this workshop we’ll trace modern virginity back to its ancient Greek roots, and discover how old beliefs continue to impact modern realities. By untangling ancient baggage, we’ll empower ourselves with a better understanding of how we can redefine “virginity” for a modern world.
Have you ever wondered if you truly qualify as ‘queer’? Have you felt like an outsider at a queer social event? Do you organize queer gatherings and struggle with being inclusive enough for broad definitions of ‘queer’ while still maintaining a safe space for queer people? In this discussion-based workshop we’ll talk about our experiences of not feeling queer enough, and come up with ways that we, both as individuals and as a community, can feel confident in our self-expression, support each other in queer spaces, and still protect our sense of identity.
