Celebrating Open Relationships

 
Straight couples don’t have to be monogamous to be married or married to be monogamous. Monogamy no more defines marriage than the presence of children does. Monogamy isn’t compulsory and its absence doesn’t invalidate a marriage.

👀 It all started when…

I asked him what was his biggest turn on. He told me something like “Well you may think I am crazy but… I like to have sex amongst other people having sex.” My eyes lit up and I exclaimed: “Let’s do it!”

One of the most valuable things we can learn from open sexual lifestyles is that our programming is changeable.

I’m going to get controversial here and say that monogamy isn’t natural, especially not for men. It’s a concept society birthed a few hundred years ago, even though men’s DNA is busy telling them to spread the seed.

🎙 A Risqué Alphabet #Podcast

LVRSNFRNDS hands the microphone to guests and records their reflection on a word related to sex. Forget about life frenzy, hit play, listen carefully and take the time to think about it.

In this first episode of a Risqué Alphabet, Sophie welcomed Hello Rooster to discuss consent. After being assaulted on an Erika Lust set; a feminist and “safe” porn set, Hello Rooster started advocating for better working standards, safer conditions and labour rights for performers and crew.

LVRSNFRNDS stands for Hello Rooster and couldn’t not feature this episode of a Risqué Alphabet which was initially published in March 2018 at the occasion of F**k Brexit.

Roo knows how to shed the light like no other on consent, a “tricky” concept. This podcast is truly valuable to any ethically (non)-monogamous person and is our gift to you and we thank them for making it possible.

Consent is like really tricky and it’s very awkward. I’ve tried to bring the way that I approach sex and consent with work into my personal life.
— Hello Rooster

People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. ‘He’s cheated so he’s bad, she’s cheated so she’s bad,’ as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous. If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don’t get to define how that happens.

😬 She told me she had a crush on him…

One tequila shot led to another, I followed him to the beach away from the group for what would be 5 minutes of wild and rough sex right on the sand. Without a word, we got back to the bar and my best friend asked: “Where were you two?”

Holiday with the parents. Hands over mouths. Can’t make a sound.

🎙 A Risqué Alphabet #Podcast

In this episode of a Risqué Alphabet, Sophie welcome Sex Writer Lena Hulderic. Lena discusses reaching equilibrium after finding love on your non-monogamous journey. How do you adjust from navigating non-monogamy solo as a liberated strong single woman to holding the helm with a partner?

If going on vacation for the first time is a big step for a couple, navigating the relationship you both truly want is another one!

It wasn’t so much that he was holding me back. It was that I physically couldn’t do anything that would have caused him any pain because that pain would have been my pain.

Following a drunken fling with another guest on a deck chair by the kids pool at our hotel, I lost my clothes and had to get back to my room, in the elevator that was 360 glass... In the centre of the reception lobby. All inclusive amiright?!
