[Relationships] My Motivation for Non-Monogamy


#WickedWednesday, Alternative Lifestyles, Life, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, Relationships, Self Expression, Self Reflection, Sex

This past weekend we had two extra sets of hands to aid with our sexy fun and no matter how far along the non-monogamy journey I go, these kinds of experiences are always something I find myself reflecting on in much greater detail than I do our one-on-one experiences. After our wonderful friends had left […]

#MasturbationMonday, Alternative Lifestyles, Friendship, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, Relationships, Self Expression, Self Reflection, Sex, Swinging

Image Via Pixabay A little while back I read a blog post that is no longer available about polyamory and swinging myths, it was a great post and it inspired me to talk about another type of alternative relationship model, non-monogamy. I wrote the article below for that blog, but later on in the week […]

[Kink] Cuckolding. It's Not Completely Cuckoo!

Image Via Pixabay Cuckolding. Is It What You Think It Is? The dictionary definition of a cuckold is, ‘the husband of an adulteress, often regarded as an object of derision.’ In terms of cuckolding as a kink or Fetish, there is a lot missing from that sentence to get a clear picture of why people […]

[Life] Communcation – It's Not Just For The Poly People


Alternative Lifestyles, Communication, Emotional Well-being, Life, Love, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, Relationships, Self Expression, Self Reflection

Image via Pixabay I read something on social media this week that got me thinking about how some my blog posts might be perceived, and wanted to talk about it a little more. The summary of the post was: “I get really annoyed by all this ‘polyamory’ advice about communicating. Monogamous people need to be […]

[Life] Feeling Secure within Alternative Relationship Models


Communication, Emotional Well-being, Friendship, Kink, Love, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, Relationships, Self Reflection, Swinging

Image via Pixabay In my post ‘Compersion, Trust and Brain Niggles’ I spoke about how my sleeping brain was causing me to feel insecure, and how security looks different within an alternative relationship model. I’m far from being an expert on this matter, and I have so much still to learn, there are some things […]

[Life] Compersion: Buzzword, Or Beautiful?


Alternative Lifestyles, Community, Love, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, Relationships

Image via Pixabay When you start delving into resources for polyamory and non-monogamy, you start to realise that as well as learning about new relationship models, you also start to learn a new language. You can find a very extensive glossary on the More Than Two site, to get a better idea of what I […]

[Life] Compersion, Trust and Brain Niggles


Alternative Lifestyles, Communication, Life, Love, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, 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, Love, Nonmonogamy, Polyamory, Relationships, Sex, Sexuality, Swinging

Back in February I wrote Poly Ramblings From a Maybe Mono Mind which probably gave the impression I should give up on non-monogamy. Then last week I wrote Exploring New (and Sexy) Things , I realise the two together possibly make for confusing reading, but I think both are really important in showing the journey I have […]
