Yep, we thought this one would be easy...but it's complicated! Join us, Greg and Leanne, Empowerment and Relationship Coaches, as we tackle what exactly we can do about toxic behaviour in a relationship. Are you experiencing toxic behaviour in a relationship? Or maybe you're the one with the toxic habits? We ALL have learned behaviour that we would like to change. Watch for the moment when I (Leanne) use hurtful humour to deflect...and you can bet I apologized once I realized I'd done it. Oof.

Ep 17: All About Authentic Intimacy
#authenticintimacy #authenticityinrelationships #sexualfreedom #selfadvocacy #intimacy #autonomy #newrelationshipenergy #feelingtakenforgranted #polyamory #ethicalnonmonogamy #monogamy #ENM #poly #authenticity
Greg and Leanne share their own personal discoveries about what intimacy is and isn't, how it can be nurtured and how it can be lost, and how it's different from sex. Getting vulnerable about how intimacy shows up in relationships and how we often take it for granted is what this episode is all about. They look at how much we value sex as a form of intimacy and how sexual autonomy might look if one person isn't feeling sexual. Does sex have to be at the heart of our shared intimacy? They examine the issue from both a monogamous relationship p.o.v. and also touch on new relationship energy and how it can impact established relationships for poly/CNM folx.
