Love in Abundance: Kathy Labriola on open relationships

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Why do some people choose to be in open relationships? What are the biggest obstacles and problems and how do people successfully navigate open relationships? Learn a little about the both the joys and the headaches inherent in loving or being sexually involved with more than one partner, hear about the various models of open relationships and how to manage the most common pitfalls, such as jealousy, miscommunication, new relationship energy, and scheduling nightmares.

About “Love in Abundance”
Relationship counselor Kathy Labriola offers an overview of alternatives to monogamy in this revealing, liberating, and informative book. This work is broken into easily discernable chapters including a working definition and layout of the models of open relationships, followed by an examination of the pitfalls and pleasures for those willing to travel the less-common path of polyamory. Sure to be informative and provocative, there is a special chapter on BDSM polyamorous relationships.
