Polyamory Without Sex: Making Sense of Chosen Family (Good Vibrations- Polk St.)
Polyamory Without Sex: Making Sense of Chosen Family, Non-Sexual Partnerships & Romantic Friendships

In open relationships, we spend a lot of time talking about how to make it okay to have casual sexual relationships, but what about inverse: serious committed relationships and partnerships that don't include sex or romance? Call it emotional non-monogamy, romantic friendship, chosen family, prioritizing community over partnership, or non-sexual life partners... Not every model of open relationship involves primary partners, or even sex. But how do you talk about your relationships with new potential partners when language barely exists to prioritize non-sexual relationships? What happens when the chosen family of one's 20's collides with the realities of children, mortgages and marriages in one's 30's, 40's and beyond? How do multi-generational chosen families work? Drawing from models pioneered by the queer community, leather families, blended families, and other long-term "arrangements," sex and relationship educators Marcia Baczynsky and Julianne Carroll will explore the issues, challenges and benefits inherent in these atypical (but not uncommon) partnerships.
