Being Open about Open Relationships

Part 2 of Open Relationships

In this episode of Wholehearted: Love Sex + Intimacy – The Podcast, I asked one of my team members, Bec Dent, to ask the burning questions the average person has around open relationships and how to navigate them.

Our guests, Richelle and Jeremy are relationship experts, but have been in numerous open relationships themselves.

They offer a very candid insight into their transition into open relationships. They explain how they first knew this was the type of alternative relationship they would like to pursue and they share the pleasure and pitfalls of this choice.

“How can you have sex with someone else if you love your partner?’

We also get their top tips for making an open relationship work well and ask:

  • How do you take care of everyone’s needs in this kind of relationship?
  • How do you keep emotion separate? Can it really be JUST sex?
  • What is ethical non-monogamy?
  • How were your relationships affected by introducing other people into them?

Listen in and enjoy!

This week’s question is:

Do you think an open relationship can just be sex with no emotional connection?
