Image Via Pixabay I’m a big fan of encouraging self care in others, I think it is really important to look after both your physical and your emotional well-being. Seeing as I realise the importance of this one would think that I am excellent at my own self-care, in this case one would be wrong. […]

Image via Pixabay Ethical non-monogamy is something I knew very little about before joining the kink community. It’s then something I got involved in almost as a side effect of being kinky. In truth I never thought I’d truly identify as non-monogamous and I never imagined I’d be truly happy to see someone I was […]

[#SoSS] Therapy, Fucking and … More Fucking!


#SoSS, Kink, Life, Mental Health, Relationships, Self Expression, Self Reflection, Sex

Image via Pixabay Monday brought me my first, ‘well that’s a #SoSS post’ moment when I read The Therapist by Karin at theswingshift. This week saw me starting to share some of my experiences with mental health, part of which details how I never quite succeeded in sticking with therapy. That isn’t because I don’t […]

[Life] Compersion, Trust and Brain Niggles


Alternative Lifestyles, Communication, Life, Nonmonogamy, Relationships, Self Reflection, Sex

Image via Pixabay Back in September I wrote ‘The Feeling When … New Things Are Awesome’, and yes I’m aware I use the word awesome far too much, but I like it, loads, so you’re stuck with it. In that writing I covered some of my thoughts on compersion, and how I’d finally experienced it […]

The Feeling When … New Things Are Awesome


Alternative Lifestyles, Life, Nonmonogamy, Relationships, Sex, Sexuality

Back in February I wrote Poly Ramblings From a Maybe Mono Mind which probably gave the impression I should give up on non-monogamy.
