With multiple partners comes multiple emotions.

Monogamous relationships have their challenges when human instincts of jealousy and sexual desires rise in the minds of the couple. But if the couple is participating in an open relationship, where partners aren't held up to the standards of monogamy and sometimes multiple individuals are involved within a community of lovers, is it possible to subdue these feelings, accepting the complexity of emotions among multiple partners?

Photographer Keren Moscovitch set out to explore the thin line between love and hate, attraction and fear, in the dynamic of members of her own open relationship. After she and her committed boyfriend opened their relationship to others, she began to feel a level of vulnerability that she'd never felt within the relationship before. The process, which she captured in this series titled "Me into You," opened her eyes to a level of intimacy completely new to her. She tells Huffington Post, "I wanted my work to show moments and views of the body that most of us experience in our erotic life, but that we aren't permitted to acknowledge in casual conversation. If we are all sexual beings, we should be able to connect around that."

Here's an intimate look at "Me into You." Some images are NSFW.
