How a therapist coaches couples who decide to have sex with other people

This by Wednesday Martin in Time piqued my interest. I thought “there’s a story idea in there somewhere”.

Upon reflection, I’m not so sure. There are so many films that explore themes of non-monogamy, consensual or otherwise.

Any new story would have to take all of these other stories into account, and be more than the tensions within a relationship, although? Perhaps exploring themes around shifting or repressive morality. A couple living happily in consensual non-monogamy. A new authoritarian power with an oppressive moral code takes control. What happens to the couple? I just realised I’ve described the scenario of The Handmaid’s Tale. There is something in there, I’m just not sure what it is?
