    Open Relationships: What's that all about? with your host Queenfg

    in Relationships

    Lets have candid, open, and real conversations about Love, Lies and Relationships! Join your host Queenfg Dointhedayummost as we discuss open relationships: what's that all about?

    The origins of the term open marriage remain obscure. Researchers in the 1960s used the term open marriage to describe individual freedom in choosing marriage partners. Closed marriage meant individuals had to marry someone based on social prohibitions and social prescriptions. Open marriage meant individuals could choose to marry someone based on personal preferences.

    Nena and George O'Neill changed the meaning of the term with the 1972 publication of their book Open Marriage. The O'Neills conceived open marriage as one in which each partner has room for personal growth and can develop outside friendships. Most chapters in the book dealt with non-controversial approaches to revitalizing marriage in areas of trust, role flexibility, communication, identity, and equality. Chapter 16, entitled "Love Without Jealousy", devoted 20 pages to the proposition that an open marriage could include some forms of sexuality with other partners. These concepts entered the cultural consciousness and the term "open marriage" became a synonym for sexually non-monogamous marriage. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_marriage)

    Blue Fiddles Web Series Creator Nena Botto

    in Television

    I recently got the chance to speak with the creator of a Web series called Blue Fiddles. Let me read the description of the series from its press kit:
    Blue Fiddles, is a new web series written by actress Nena Botto. It's the story of three women searching for meaning amongst the day to day grind living in Portland, Oregon. The theme is a mix of comedy and drama that aims to be glamorous through honesty- women who have scars from life experiences not numerous Botox sessions. The characters are complex in their demeanor and wonderfully flawed in their intentions.
    Within this interview, Nena tells of how she came up with the idea for the series and just how much filming it turned into a huge collabortive effort between the cast, crew and the city of Portland.
