Autonomy is a challenging subject for many of us. We're encouraged to be independent while at the same time we're told that putting the needs of the people we love above our own is the definition of love & noble sacrifice. Most of us make life decisions based not only on how they affect us personally, but how they affect the other people in our lives.

Even if it doesn't seem like it, we choose how much we let other people's needs and wants influence our decision making and how much autonomy we claim for ourselves. Romantic & sexual relationships challenge autonomy regularly and in non-monogamy that challenge can be ever-present.
 
On this episode of On The Wet Coast, Kat & Flick are discussing autonomy in non-monogamy. How emphasizing autonomy for yourself and your partners serves your relationships, and the tricky situations and consequences that can come up related to owning your independent self.

On this episode we'll be discussing mental illness in non-monogamy with special guest Cooper S Beckett from Life On The Swingset podcast and www.coopersbeckett.com

Those of us in non-monogamous circles spend a unique amount of time relating with others in a very intimate manner. When we let go of the standard social narrative of one partner only and admit our desire for intimacy with multiple others, we often let go of many of the other social façades in place and talk more honestly and intimately about other issues in our lives.  Issues such as mental illness.

Before we start, we'd like to say that none of us are mental health professionals or experts and are merely discussing our personal experiences and observations on the subject. If you are in crisis and need help, please seek resources in your local area.

On this episode we’re discussing Stress in ethical non-monogamy.

There are so many positive aspects about open relationships but one of the negatives we’ve discovered is how stressful they can be.

Everyone knows that jealousy, self-esteem issues, or mismatched levels of feelings can take their toll, especially when find ourselves managing them poorly or tamping them down in denial or shame. But it's easy to overlook the emotional cost of GOOD stress, like the *excitement* of new experiences, meeting people, and New Relationship Energy.

We’re breaking down a number of different sources of stress in non-monogamy as well as some of the ways we manage, cope with, and process that stress so we can focus on the positive and get the most out of sharing the love.

Welcome to On The Wet Coast a podcast about sexuality and ethical non-monogamy of every variety.

On this episode - originally released on the Gentle Perverts Social Club Podcast Episode 11 on Swingset.fm - we wade into the murky green waters of jealousy.

We all know that as non-monogamous perverts, we’re completely above jealousy. It’s 100% full-time compersion up in here! Except we’re not, and it’s not.

Jealousy affects all our relationships for so many different reasons. Different people and situations trigger jealousy bombs in sometimes unexpected ways. We’re discussing jealousy in many of its iterations, what it means, what it doesn’t mean, why some people cause you to Hulk out while others might inspire giddy compersion rainbows, why rules don’t always work, and what we’ve done to decrease the harm jealousy can do in our open relationship.
