Uncommon Relationships; Uncommon Love

//Uncommon Relationships; Uncommon Love

Welcome to the 50th episode of The Couples Expert Podcast: Uncommon Relationships; Uncommon Love. Monogamy, non-monogamy, polyamory, polygamy, polyandry, sex-positive, swinging, open, LGBTQ… What does it all mean? And is it right for me and for my partner? As humans can be identified by their individual fingerprints, so can they identify themselves in absolutely unique and wonderful ways in the worlds of love, sex, and relationships.

Have you ever questioned the sexuality that you’ve experienced throughout your lifetime? Have you ever yearned for more, or different, but were afraid to say or do anything about it? In a world that has for so long clung to tradition, barriers are finally being broken down beyond closed doors. More and more people are coming out, feeling a heightened confidence about expressing their needs and desires. But it’s not always easy and sometimes a little bit of guidance on how to go about it is needed.

Join Stuart and Gina as they delve into a discussion in the ‘non-traditional’ arena of relationships. The days of judgment are long overdue to end.

“Our conversation today is about trying to make everything okay, and that whoever you are, and whatever feels good, and whatever sexual experiences you want to have is okay.”

Perhaps it will be eye-opening. Perhaps it will be self-confirming. Perhaps it will give you the courage to talk to your partner about your innermost self that has been hiding for an extended period of time.

“I can’t even tell you the decades that this person has been sitting with shame and self-loathing about this interest that they have.”

No matter what your personal circumstances might be, Stuart and Gina, as they talk, will make you think… twice.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • cactusAbout some terminology in the world of love that you may not have heard of before.
  • How it takes a particularly strong sense of self-worth and ability to self-soothe to make an alternative lifestyle work.
  • That being monogamous may not necessarily mean “being monogamous”.
  • That there can be absolute acceptance on our planet for people of all different shapes, sizes, colors… and bents.
