Sexual encounter groups for couples
It might surprise you to learn that the movement actually began in Spain. Some people are asexual, meaning they don't experience sexual desire or attraction to others, but they still want to participate in a romantic relationship. Local workshops presented by trained Certified Gottman Therapists may offer smaller group sizes. Just like you need to date different people to learn what you want in a potential partner, you may want to try out different types of relationships to figure out what you want out of your romantic life. Case examples are included to illustrate how this model works in clinical practice, as well as specific suggestions for further study that could lead to a more evidence-based practice. This kind of love is called romantic as it seeks to avoid all unpleasant aspects, work, and challenges that inevitably arise in any long-term partnership, instead of welcoming conflict as an opportunity for healing, growth, and awakening.

Many share homes in configurations like ours, or as committed triads or quads or complex networks of five or more.
