Every dynamic encounters conflict. Listen to this podcast to find out how to manage it when multiple partners are involved.

Welcome back to my playground, fiends and friends.

I've been inundated with questions after each of my episodes about non-monogamy, as well as positive feedback and comments from grateful people who are happy they have found someone who understands them and the unique issues that could happen in a non-monogamous relationship.

So I invited Diana Ryan, licensed professional counselor and the owner and operator of 360 degrees Coaching and Counseling, to join me and help our listeners learn techniques to identifying possible areas of conflict in their non-monogamous relationships, as well as how to handle current conflict they are experiencing.

I first met Diana at Sex Down South in Atlanta and attended a presentation she gave with her partner, Keiland, about non-monogamy and the lifestyle. Her openness to discussing intimacy and relationships in these contexts, as well as her willingness to open up to the group about how they handled certain conflicts within their own relationship, were very educational for me — and I know you'll feel the same when you listen to this episode!

So if you're in an ethically non-monogamous relationship and want to know about some of the most common types of potential conflict in non-monogamy — and how to avoid or manage them — then you should definitely listen to this episode!

We'll also help you with some strategies to make sure your relationship is happy and healthy, starting with how to spot and avoid some red flags and ensure you're on the right path.

We'll explore what to do if you encounter conflict in your relationship and some ways that you can improve your relationship by developing certain skills and techniques.

So whether you're in an open, swinging, non-monogamous or monogamish relationship or you're polyamorous, you'll benefit from Diana Ryan's expertise in relationships and sexuality to improve intimacy, communication, and pleasure with your partner(s).
