"Yes, you can state that you’re in an Open Relationship, but I am not. I am as seriously and exclusively committed to two boyfriends as I would be to one. You can state that “It’s Complicated,” but in this case, and in many, many polyamorous relationships, it is not complicated. I love him, and I love him, both of them, more than anyone else."

"On the night I went to Touchpoint, the main topic that won the most votes was trust and transparency: What's the balance between honesty and personal privacy in a partnership?

(One couple in attendance actually started dating after they met at Touchpoint.) We talked about everything related to relationship trust, from non-monogamous relationships to emotional cheating."

"This instance is especially disgusting because Patreon is a bespoke Silicon Valley/San Francisco company who courted erotic artists in a city where erotic artists have literally been driven out thanks to companies like theirs, and now their hypocrisy will literally make erotic artists homeless by eliminating their livelihoods with a single keystroke, the burp of an algorithm, or a behind-closed-doors discussion of what porn is or isn't."

A is for Aftercare

Aftercare is the practice of checking in with one another after a scene (or “play session,” a.k.a., the time in which the BDSM happens) to make sure all parties feel nice and chill about what just went down.

BDSM releases endorphins, which can lead to both dominants and submissives experiencing a “drop.” Aftercare can help prevent that. There’s often cuddling and always conversation; kinksters need love too.

When you have that freedom to speak your mind and heart, there’s no need to sneak around or not be honest about how you’re feeling.
