Join us for the first in a new series of discussions on forming “conscious” intimate relationships — relationships which are deliberately formed among equals, rather than simply following society’s default scripts.

For our first topic, we’ll take a general look at what assumptions people make about love and loving relationships, and discuss whether there’s a better way to do things for us as individuals and for society. Future events will focus on more specific topics selected by the group.

This is NOT a lecture or workshop, but a discussion open to all people, of all genders, orientations, and relationship styles.

We strive to make all Oh Shit! What Now? Collective events a space free of oppression, so please leave that crap at home. For more information on our group, our safer spaces policy and our rules, please see our FAQ.
