    In an ‘open’ dilemma

    Without a doubt! I’ve hopped on an Asexuality forum as well, and ethical non-monogamy seems to be something many couples in sexual/asexual relationship pursue. As expected, it works a charm for some and not for others. I have only just started learning about asexuality and it’s much more of a...

    In an ‘open’ dilemma

    H Thank you for this!! I definitely don’t think professionals are always right or across everything, I know there is limited quality research into things like polyamory and asexuality, and so clinicians are often at a disadvantage.

    In an ‘open’ dilemma

    These are two very good points to think about. I think by nature I am definitely more poly. To be honest, in all my previous relationships where I was sexually matched, I have still found the idea of other people appealing. But your other question on whether I need to be sexually matched with...

    In an ‘open’ dilemma

    Yeah, he’s had his T levels checked and they are fine. When I say ‘everything’ I mean we saw a sex therapist and a relationship counsellor and followed all the advice given. At the end of the day we all agreed it’s probably just how his libido is. Men have a wide spectrum of libidos, I don’t...

    In an ‘open’ dilemma

    Thank you GalaGirl! Those are all really pertinent questions, some I had considered and many not. I will make sure we discuss all of those together. I’m also acutely aware that if we open it up, we can never go back to ‘before’. So, it’s certainly a decision neither of us are taking lightly...

    In an ‘open’ dilemma

    Hi everyone, I’m brand new to this forum. A bit about me, I’m a 27 year old woman who has been in a monogamous relationship for 5 years with my partner (30yr old male). We own a house together and a beautiful Great Dane! I don’t want this to come across as conceited, which it might 😬, but...
