Alt-Valentines for alt-relationships


Isabella Rotman, the artist-in-residence at Scarleteen, a progressive sex-ed site for young people, illustrated a bunch of cool Valentine’s Day e-cards that celebrate a wide spectrum of alternative relationships, like friends with benefits, poly, or even love for yourself.

There’s a big range of interactions and relationships that can all be healthy, happy and involve love — or like, lust, or even I-don’t-know-yet-what-this-is-yet-but-it-sure-is-fun-so-far — not just one kind of relationship. Hookups or friends with benefits, open or poly relationships, friendships, sexual monogamy, love relationships without sex, exes turned friends, and even the love relationship one has with oneself can all potentially be sweet, caring, beneficial and meaningful for the people within them.

Relationships have always been complicated, thankfully a lot of those “complications” are more socially acceptable now.

“for open relationships or singles”


“for a kickass friend”
