LGBTQIA+ and Polyamory

Should it be LGBTGIAP+? A friend-of-a-friend brought this debate to the table the other evening: ‘should polyamory be a part of the LGBTQIA+ umbrella?’ He argued it should. He argued that polyamory is a minority sexual-identity group that faces systemic intolerance, so even if it’s not exactly the same thing, it should be lumped into a […]

Good Vibes!

Vibrating fun (it’s not just for women) This might be a little bit of a TMI, but during that time of the month, the mess is pretty off putting to me, so I try to have fun alternatives to vaginal penetrative sex with a partner.

No, not one of those “two week anniversaries” or a “6 month half anniversary”. I celebrated an actual one-year, anniversary.

Weapons in the War of Words

I am a man of words I am a man of words. I believe in the importance of verbal communication, be it electronic, spoken, or written. Okay, so I prefer written or electronic.
