Poly Jewelry Roundup

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

I was going back through my wishlist and I noticed some broken links to some pseudo-poly jewelry.  That took me to my FB Poly Jewelry Photo Album and a couple of old posts I made here, and I noticed some jewelry isn't available anymore.  While trying to correct the links, it reminded me that I haven't done a poly jewelry roundup in a while.  So here are some things I've found:

Obligation is a derail: some thoughts on negotiation in loving relationships

Source Website: atheist, polyamorous, skeptics

You probably saw that spreadsheet of reasons a wife declined to have sex with her husband, a couple weeks back. As these things do, it’s generated a fresh round in the continued conversation about sex and obligation. The conversation goes like this:

Feminist bloggers and commentators: “Nobody ever owes anybody sex for any reason.”

Less-feminist bloggers and commentators: “What, never?”

“What, never?”

So yesterday, I came out. At the bank. For those of you, who have been reading here for awhile now, you know that Lucar and I are more or less not out or out depending on the situation. I have not come out to my parents. My mother passed away and I never went there. […]

I Have Conversations About Autonomy & Consent

Source Website: The Journal Of The InnKeeper

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

The following is a paraphrase of a conversation I had recently.  The first sentence is a direct quote, but the rest is basically a summary of what was said following that first sentence.  I have lots of reasons to be afraid in love, as do many people.  Change is inevitable and my crystal ball is in the shop so I can't predict what form that change will take.  And that's scary.  But I leap into love anyway, even with my fears.  And there are things that I do not fear.

Everyone's favorite source of poly wisdom, BadAss McProblemsolver, is back to take on a complicated question: "How do I handle a broken relationship agreement without Drama?"

The answer, as it turns out, can be found in Star Wars. Don't do what Luke Skywalker did in The Empire Strikes Back.
