    Doctor Who! (Possible "Spoilers!")

    Quick update... PolyTampa is still active (meeting tonight at the TGIFridays across from University Mall... if anyone wants to join us.) Bound to Love is no longer meeting... The influx of munches and kink events (i.e. FetCirtuit, The Web and several local dungeons.) meant the purpose of the...

    A friend loaned me this book-- A Straight Girl's Guide to Sleeping with Chicks. (link to Amazon below) I was involved in my first relationship with another woman... I kinda fell into it (I was dating her husband, and the three of us....) She was bi- and I started asking a lot of questions...

    Your most recent OKC messages. post em here!

    I'm wondering if this type of message is responding via phone app rather than computer. Maybe that's why this style of response is short, grammar impaired and misspelled. (I'm feeling sorry for the HARE. Having a lot of UN on it must be painful...)

    scruffy, dirty, infectious... and now the practical issue.... If he's not taking care of his teeth/washing his body... would sleeping with him cause infections/problems? My ex-partner was a stickler for washing hands before and after mutual masturbation... mainly because it prevents Urinary...

    I don't know where to begin

    Make a list of talking points. Have him do the same. Compare lists. Think about how much time you want to talk about each. Listen. I once had a discussion where we timed the bullet points. Only talked about each for 10 minutes. (or... however many minutes seems reasonable.) That puts an...
