Most people are deeply indoctrinated into monogamy mindset and experimenting with openness is going to shake that up. It is going to show you your insecurities and fears — and if you are wise, you will realize that those are yours to work on. The level of honesty, vulnerability, and authenticity that can be had when you really dive in fully is worth it all. Be honest, be real, communicate and then communicate some more. And have a hell of a good time too!

You might want to read Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships or some other similar book for further guidance, although I’m always happy to be of help if you think I can be. ❤️
