Try to make a rule that your partner will never develop feelings for a sexual partner and be prepared to find yourself on the business end of a Klingon pain stick.
Is marriage your destination, or just a potential stop on your great journey?
I stammered and resisted. He grabbed hold of my wrist and pulled me toward the shower door. I watched as he pushed the handle away from "hot" to "cold" and held me there.
The Play Partner Manifesto
I wouldn't (probably) mind more rope in my life, but I come back to that question of connection.
1000: Even deeper than I thought I’d go
We all suffer, in varying degrees and for different reasons - but we all suffer.
Good Girls Revolt (quietly?)
I spent the day yesterday watching the one season of "Good Girls Revolt," an Amazon original that had sneaked under my radar when it was released a few years ago.

Like, when I'm approximately 12 mornings short of three years… Continue reading Countdown to year three
Another Post-Grue Post: Part 1 – Addressing the needs of each relationship
I'm a fan of using precise language to break down concepts in my own head.

Does it mean the same thing if I'm trying… Continue reading Another Post-Grue Post: Part 1 – Addressing the needs of each relationship
