How To Write A Dating App Bio For An Open Relationship That's Fully Transparent

The Elite

While you don't necessarily need to slap this information on your Tinder bio, it would be nice to mention it early and definitely before going on a date. "Not everyone you meet online or in person is going to be as psyched about non-monogamy as you are," Blue adds. "This is okay! A good way to handle these initial conversations is to invite potential dating partners to have a conversation about what your open relationship means to you. The key is to invite rather than impose."

Above the Law

“I had a consensual BDSM relationship with another employee, which included one brief incident in private on work premises several months before the disciplinary proceedings,” he added.

“I believe that the disciplinary proceedings were brought against me as retaliation for my having handed in notice following a disagreement over salary and not as a result of the much earlier incident.”

Easier With Three

on Saturday, 05 May 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News


The big obstacles in most relationships are in the little details—finances, housework, child and/or pet care, and how to spend free time. Before I lived with my wife’s girlfriend, I might have said that having an extra person would only make the conflicts and disagreements of daily life that much harder to work out. Instead, for our family, we’ve found the opposite is true. Whether we need an extra set of hands, an extra listening ear, another chum to hang out with, or an extra couple of bucks, our family has found that three can be easier, not harder, than two.

"The IMsL/IMsBB weekend should be an inclusive and sex positive space for all people. All are welcome, and racism, transphobia, and other forms of discrimination have no place here. An important part of the weekend is exploring how the intersectionality of race, class, gender, and ability affect experiences of leather, kink, and sexualities. We must make a commitment to enriching these intersectionalities not only at the weekend but throughout our communities. We will work toward this goal."

She understands why some of the neighbors would be upset when they find out about the parties, but said a big part of the lifestyle is respect for those who don’t live it.

“It’s important to use that we’re not trying to interfere in your world. But please also don’t judge ours,” she said.

Fight in 2018! An Interview With Our Volunteer Coordinator

on Monday, 30 April 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

by Julian Wolf


Was one of your resolutions for 2018 making a difference? Current politics have you ready to stand up and fight for your freedom? Have extra time and a passion for serving your national community? We'd love to have you work with us! Our volunteer coordinator extraordinaire Keira joined me virtually to answer a few questions about how you can help the work of the NCSF actively this year.


Thanks for joining us! What sort of help does the NCSF need? Is it always sitting at tables?


Keira: Most of the volunteering is actually done via the internet. We are always looking for skilled volunteers for all sorts of projects. We tailor the project to the volunteer. The most common projects require creative skills like writing and graphic design, but we really do find something for everyone. Once we even asked someone to create coloring book pages for us!


Do you need experience in advocacy? What if you're new to swingers and/or kink community, should those folks wait to participate?


Keira: Again, the projects are tailored to the volunteer. You don't need any experience in advocacy, activism, or community. Just willingness and drive to volunteer.


How would one of our constituents go about offering to volunteer with the NCSF?


Keira: Our website has a volunteer questionnaire that you need to fill out in order to become a volunteer. The URL is


What keeps you volunteering?


Keira: I really enjoy the people I work with and I'm proud of the work I do. Additionally, working with NCSF has really improved my self worth and helped me make many positive changes in my personal life.


Anything else you'd like to share with us?

Keira: Volunteering for NCSF is done in as low stress a way as possible. So please don't be scared. It's really painless.


Thank you so much for your work!


Keira has been actively volunteering with the NCSF since 2011 and joined the board in 2014. She was recently featured as a Poly Role Model. See her interview here or via our website at
