IF 003: Open Friendships – Intellectual Foreplay


Prof and Ginger tackle the conundrum that often in heterosexual relationships cross-gender friendships are considered odd, suspect, or even forbidden. Reflecting on their own experiences with sexy and “platonimous” friendships, they deconstruct the damaging cultural expectations for friendship when in relationships. Their take on open friendships means respecting each human deserves their own meaningful connections regardless of gender or relationship construct. Strategies for enjoying these friendships and reframes of expectations can create deeper trust and more fulfilling partnerships.
