April 15th Sunday Assembly - West!


Non-Monogamy for Non-Majors

with Dedeker Winston, coach, author, podcaster


1 in 5 Americans have experienced a consensually non-monogamous relationship. You may not realize it, but chances are very high that you have a friend who is taking part in some kind of non-traditional relationship. Non-monogamy is as old as the hills, but it's become a new topic of media fascination within the past decade. Swinging, polyamory, and other forms of consensual non-monogamy are perfect fodder for news segments and tabloids: one part scandal, one part sexy, and one part side-show freaky.


However, it's time to look behind the sensationalism and examine the everyday lived experiences of people in non-monogamous relationships. In this talk, we'll explore everything you need to know about non-traditional relationships as they function in the real world -- and how we can all make the real world a safer place for all relationships styles.

Dedeker Winston was raised to be a wholesome Christian conservative, but later opted to be a sex-positive polyamory activist, relationship coach, and nude model. She currently provides one-on-one coaching services for people transitioning into non-monogamy and is one of the hosts of the Multiamory podcast. She has been sought out as an expert for Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Newsweek, Vice, Bustle, and AskMen. Her book, The Smart Girl’s Guide to Polyamory: Everything You Need to Know About Open Relationships, Non-Monogamy, and Alternative Love (Skyhorse Publishing), debuted in February 2017.  She will have copies available for sale and signing on site that day.
