Confession: I’m a Secret Lover

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

You know that feeling you get when you haven’t had something that you want, something that you need, in a really, really long time, and suddenly it’s in front of you, so close that you can taste it and smell it. So close that every fibre of your being is consumed with that overwhelming need to just simply have it.

Monogamy Isn’t Broken, But We Are

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

Sometimes I imagine what non-monogamy looks like to an outsider, though I can’t really remember what I used to think when I was one myself. I suspect that polyamory, or whatever form of non-monogamy someone is living, looks chaotic to the outside eye. When held up against the pristine perfection that is supposed to be monogamy, us “deviants” must look broken and dishevelled, searching for happiness as we hop from heart to heart or bed to bed.

On Toenails and Sandwiches

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

I realized something today while cutting my toenails. (Not my normal place for epiphanies, but I’ll take it.) For a little context, I don’t really bother much with my feet. I wear flip flops all summer and into as much of fall as possible. I paint my toes maybe every few months, and sometimes just reach down quickly and throw another coat of polish on if I’m heading out and they look a little peely.

People Are Strange, When You’re a Stranger

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

There are millions of us out there; people who’ve loved another but now walk the earth apart. It’s pretty standard when it comes to breaking up. Either gradually or in an instant, that person you were once so close with, no more has a place in your life.

“I’m a feminist who enjoys being dominated during sex. Help!” – My response

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

Continuing the theme of me responding to recent Globe & Mail sex questions, I’ve foolishly decided to tackle one about feminism and BDSM. While I consider myself both a feminist and a submissive woman, there are so many angles to consider when writing a kink related piece that I’m not certain I’ll be able to capture in one piece. But when the Globe’s response includes a line that says “Still, I get a little sweaty advising you that physical abuse is cool.” I know that I have to say SOMEthing about it.

This time last year, things were pretty great for me. I was deep into exploring a couple of new, casual relationships that had a distinct kinky element to them that I really needed and enjoyed.

Nature and Nurture

Source Website: polyhydra

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

I’ve found that there is often an extreme view taken by people about nature vs. nurture. Many people act as if only one is true, even when they verbally acknowledge that both play a role. It is as if they have convinced themselves that the other part is so insignificant, that it takes an almost insurmountable effort to overcome it.

Sex Without Borders: Public Response

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

Every time I agree to a new very public appearance about my personal life I have to question my sanity. With the recent Toronto Life article in their February 2013 sex issue (out now-ish, I believe, and online within a few weeks), I’m re-evaluating my position on a few things related to my now – even more public – persona.
