Hey my kinky, polyam peeps! First off:
HAPPY POLYAMORY DAY!!!
Yes, November 23 is Polyamory Day, so make sure to tell all your partner’s, metas, and metas too-many-times removed how important they are and what a valuable community we represent.
In light of National Polyamory Day, our first article comes from INews from across the pond. While I do my best not to mono-shame, there’s some real anthropological evidence that humans just weren’t meant to be monogamous. Does this mean monogamy is “wrong”. or “bad”? Of course not! It does mean, however, that who I am and who I love is completely natural.
“Monogamy has been held up as the norm in Western culture for thousands of years and there is some truth to the argument that we keep doing it because we have inherited it, but this doesn’t satisfy evolutionary biologists, who have their own theories about why we keep trying (and failing) at sexual fidelity.”
Second, it’s easy to forget just how wide-ranging the world of kink is. When we hear something new or different, it can be very easy to kink-shame, and we should all try to remember that one person’s trash can be another person’s treasure.
“While it’s normal to have kinks and fetishes, some happen to be less common than others. One such affinity is the fart fetish—or eproctophilia, in fancy science terminology.”
I hope everyone enjoys “feasting” on these two articles, and until next time, stay kinky, my friends…
