About Marcia:

I blog about sexual communication, consent, boundaries, alternative relationships, desire and more here. A couple of times per year, I teach The Good Girl Recovery Program.

In 2014, I created the Open Road Map, an online course for couples in the process of opening up their relationships. (Therapists and counselors can purchase for 50% off, using the code: ORMTHERAPIST (offer good on single-pay option only).)

I also run 2 monthly open relationship discussion groups:

  • Second Monday of each month at Gingerville, 721 5th St, Oakland, CA 94607
  • Second Tuesday of each month at Center for Sex and Culture, 

Topics change each month. $15-20 sliding scale. We meet from 7:30-9:30pm. You are invited to attend. 🙂
