SS 137: Our Open Agreement – Setting Rules and Boundaries in Swinging & Polyamory with Cat Maness


When preparing to embark on open relationship, or deep within the throes of one, hammering out an open agreement, determining your rules and boundaries, and having those ever important discussions are essential. Today we’re joined by Cat Maness, creator of Our Open Agreement Tool, an online resource for creating your agreements, to discuss why these are worth having and discuss how to put them together. We also discuss a listener e-mail from Episode 130, Swinger Profiles.

  1. We just listened to this podcast and are interested in doing one of these agreements. The website is a bit confusing, though: it’s $20 for “one week”. Does that mean that, if we want to update our agreement or take more than a week to complete it (you guys mentioned it may take several sittings), you have to pay multiple times?

    • It’s designed to come in and do it, perhaps over less than a week, and when you come back later (in 6 months, a year) to update, you will have to pay again
