Hey, my kinky poly peeps! Sorry for being M.I.A. for the last two weeks. Between Christmas and New Year’s I was on the road for over a week visiting family and friends, so I’m just now getting back on track. So, without further adieu, the news…
When I was in high school, my driver’s ed teacher spent a class showing us an episode of “World’s Wildest Police Videos”. His rationale was “Today, we are going to learn what NOT to do.” Our first article is the poly version of this. Like Panda and I, many individuals begin their path of ethical non-monogamy as monogamous couples. Author Elle Silver shares her personal story of how her first attempt at ENM ended in heartbreak and what she learned.
“Reality struck. I wanted to cry about my breakup on my husband’s shoulder while he was on a date with another woman? This was so dysfunctional! I knew then we had to end our marriage, open or not.”
Second, from Thomas H. Brand of Medium.com comes an investigation into the most complicated of all poly relationships: the triad. As someone with two partners who are both in their own triads, I can say that they are a lot of work, which is one reason you’ll never find me in one. My life is complicated enough, thank you very much…
“Many people fall into the assumption that polyamory automatically means being in a triad of some kind. It’s the only real model we see in modern media, so the idea is understandable. But not every polyamory relationship needs to involve three people, and not every three-person interaction needs to be a committed relationship.”
Stay tuned for a new blog update, and if you haven’t followed me on TikTok yet, go do that now. We’re SO CLOSE to hitting 1,000 followers and we need your help!
Until next time, stay kinky, my friends…
