On sex and relationships…

There are many aspects of sex and relationships that I have already written about in my weekly column for BitchBuzz, and so I thought it might be worth linking to a few of my favourites here. If there's anything else you'd like me to cover, please let me know. I always like to choose topics... Continue Reading →

Poly Means Many: Series summary

UPDATE: This entry was intended to be a way to summarise all the posts written as part of the Poly Means Many blogging project. However, it is no longer being updated each month with a new polyamory-related topic because the summary has now moved to its own domain.

Explaining alternatives to monogamy

If you ever have to explain polyamory to family or friends who have never come across the idea that there's an alternative to monogamy, how do you do it? More importantly, how do you explain things if it's your own relationship(s) you're talking about? Personally, I have no idea! I can tell you how not... Continue Reading →

Introducing… The Polyam Bloggers

It's great when casual discussions lead to exciting new projects.

Sometimes those things can be true, but the... Continue Reading →

Time to heal

You know I said last week that things weren't bad? Well, that all changed. I've entered a new week with a bit of confusion, a lot of hurt feelings and fewer relationships. After all that talk about how it's possible to get through the tough times, I realised that sometimes it just isn't going to... Continue Reading →

On secondary relationships…

I currently have two partners, but describing these relationships to others can often be tricky. It seems logical to call the person I have lived with for over a decade my primary partner, but the accompanying term that I might use to describe the person I have been with since the start of the year,...
