Finding My New Place In The Crowd

Source Website: Not Your Mother's Playground

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

It doesn’t feel like that long ago that Steph and I were considered the strange misfits among everyone we knew for being non-monogamous, but on the other hand, yeah ok, it sort of does. If 2014 still has us living in a society where we have so many backwards thinkers wandering around wreaking havoc, then 2006, when we first opened up, feels like the cave-people times. (I would’ve just said caveman times, but it’s 2014 as I write this, so I’m feeling more progressive, you see.)

Spying and Trust Issues

Source Website: Poly for You

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

I know I have talked about trust before and continue to express how important it is in any kind of relationship. But I saw this article today on a friend’s Facebook page about a new app that you can download to spy on your kids and its specifically built to see what they are doing on Snapchat. Basically to keep tabs on your kids to make sure they aren’t sexting or talking to strangers. This got me thinking about all the other apps out there that spy through cell phones and such. Then I got curious. How many apps were out there to keep tabs on your partner. I knew there had to be.

My Two Cents

Source Website: Poly for You

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

There has been a lot of chatter about Robin Williams’ suicide this past week. While I mainly stick to relationships and sexuality here on this blog, I feel like the blog itself is more than that…its about life in general I think…at least from my view of the world. So I wanted to say a few things here about the aftermath of it all.

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

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

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.

Kinkless in Toronto

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

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.
