**BECAUSE Conference attendees do NOT need to purchase a separate ticket to the show**

What are the connections between love, intimacy, and sexuality?

Would you risk it all – your marriage, kids, social network– for authenticity?

BHF+M is a risqué one-man show which premiered in Vancouver and has toured to California, Oregon and now Minnesota. It is an intimate glimpse into one extraordinary couple’s exploration of the bounds of love and acceptance – and the counter-intuitive discoveries they make as their erotic journey brings them to ever-deepening levels of intimacy.

BHF+M is all about risk: the autobiographical nature of the show is itself a risk, as Marco publicly explores his personal struggle with bisexuality and the ensuing changes the couple makes to accommodate both of their evolving, confusing intimate and sexual needs. Opening one’s relationship and toying with non-monogamy is the ultimate marital risk. Or is it?
