    I'm just popping in to share some news, since I've been off a while... Zen and I are planning our wedding, in July, at the Thunder in the Mountains kink convention. And for those of you familiar with such things... Midori has just agreed to officiate for us! *Incoherent happy noises!*

    Cool finds, Artisans selling online

    Hey, I know that it is frowned upon (though I actually don't see anything against it in the User Guidelines...?) to use the forum to try and promote anything. I am going to go out on a limb here, I am hoping/guessing that since I'm not trying to promote my own business endeavor of any sort, I'm...

    Things you love that went away- Nostalgia thread

    So I'm specifically NOT talking about people, or lovers, or anything like that. I mean random stuff. Ever been really into something, like it really brightened your life, and then it went away or they stopped making it or selling it? I'm having one of those moments, remembering a website...

    I wanna talk about it!! I know lots of people think it's a bunch of baloney. I don't blame you, because it seems like superstitious nonsense to me if I think about it in a certain light. I've had to ponder WHY I like astrology. Because I do. I think it's because I like organizing ideas and...

    Project on loneliness by alt-scene friend

    Hello! A friend of mine in the local poly/lifestyle/BDSM scene is a gifted writer and photographer, and he's doing a themed blog project on the subject of loneliness. You would think that, as polyamorists, lovers of more, we would not experience loneliness as much as others, but I don't think...

    My thoughts on compersion

    So I think in analogies, especially early in the morning, and especially in the shower. I can't explain it, so don't ask, that's just how it is. This morning, my thoughts were on an incident where a cute gal at a bar get together was all over my Sadist. I reacted with a sort of raised eyebrow...

    The same weekend, June 17-19, will see Denver Comic Con at the Convention Center and Pride at the Civic Center Park, mere blocks from one another. So... - The traffic in that area will be impossible. You've been warned. - The shenanigans and costumes will be unreal. I imagine that after...

    Casual love--YES, PLEASE.

    This. This, this, this, THIS. ^^^ I want to do like a standing ovation for this blog post, but I'm at work and my coworkers would look at me very strangely if I did. My whole life, I have felt this way. Why in the heck does someone...

    Taming Your Mammoth

    This article has nothing to do with polyamory specifically. I am sharing it here because part of being successfully fact, part of being successful at anything PERIOD, especially relationships, is being ~self aware~. What does that even mean? It's a challenge. Well, in talks...

    I like weird quotes. I kind of collect them in my head. Many from kids, as opposed to those serious adult motivational or inspirational quotes we always hear... Anyhow I'd like to hear some of your favorites, even if they are just silly things that someone said and you remembered...
