E62: Navigating Open Relationships with 'More than Two' Authors Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert
Have you ever wondered what open relationships are like? Interested in how polyamory works, or what makes it different from swinging? Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert are here to talk about non-monogamy!
Franklin has been non-monogamous for his entire life, starting when he took two girls to his high school senior prom. Eve has been polyamorous since 2004. Together, they’re the authors of the polyamory how-to book More Than Two: A Practical Guide to Ethical Polyamory, where they talk about how to make compassionate, committed non-monogamous relationships work (and even offer advice for all kinds of relationships!)
In this show, they share their advice for couples looking to open up their relationships, and we will discuss how to deal with relational jealousy, time management, the importance of language and the changing nature of relational hierarchies. As someone who has been in an open relationship since 2012 and polyamorous since 2014, Dr. Kelly has learned alot from Eve & Franklin’s work and also shares some of her experiences.
We will also discuss the different types of non-monogamous and polyamorous relationships! If you are monogamous, curious, experimenting or poly, this show will feature something that everyone can learn about relationships.
For starters… Check out Franklin’s amazing diagram of the different types of non-monogamy (below) as well as his poster of the Map of Human Sexuality!
