Disclaimer: I have noted that being on OKC is similar to being an atheist and going to church. I'm here, but it's hard to have faith in the interweb. My best relationships have been from live connections; you're welcome to dissuade me.
Second disclaimer, although I am "poly" I am really seeking a person with emotional, intellectual, and physical availability. I thought it was clear in my profile, but feeling the need to reiterate it. Thanks!
Now onto the glimmer of "me":
Self descriptors being boxes that muddle chemistry and connection aside, here goes...I am a creative, lively woman with interests in all things personal: physical, spiritual, emotional growth, pleasure, pain, and general hedonism. Although I love animals and have a wonderful, well-behaved chihuahua named Samson, I am an unrepentant omnivore who relishes healthy appetites. I have a Master's in French/English Lit and Women's Studies, (thesis: Subversive Practices in Feminist Performance Art). I've also studied Physical Theater, Circus Arts, Psychic Healing, Tantra, Taoism, Buddhism, Body Piercings, and BDSM, the latter which I also currently teach. I've lived in Paris, France and Melbourne, Australia. I love traveling. "Things" I like: cooking, cars, kink, care, compersion. Basically I am an "omni" person in relationships, and find it difficult to label myself any one thing, the closest is queer poly top femme switch.
Although my leanings be artistic, politics and science turn me on - especially when there is little ego involved.
Physically, I have discreet and meaningful body ink/tattoos and several piercings. I like looking somewhat "normal", (define that please!), but naked be adorned. I have a body/spirit that desires intense sensation: giving and receiving, the latter which I am currently trying to ameliorate.
I am consideredpolyamorous or appreciative of "open" relationships, (which means lots of communication!), seeking an open minded, kinky, comrade/companion/lover - NOT a booty call, (unless exceptionally talented;). These days, I am more open to lightness and ease than anything heavy. Having said that, I do expect you to know how to articulate your thoughts and feelings - ideally in a timely fashion.
Mostly, I am eager to meet fellow adventurers, especially sailors, skydivers, and pilots - particularly if you have the following criterion: you value and practice transparency in relationships, (if you don't know what that means, we are probably not well suited), because you know yourself well enough to know that you cannot fully know yourself at any given time. My preference would be for someone(s) creative and queer or queer friendly, but I find chemistry perplexing, dictating "love" impossible, longevity not so obvious. Besides, we don't need to have special chemistry to explore the diverse culture the Bay Area has to offer - although connection makes it more amusing, n'est ce pas?
Having said that, people who can appreciate my extraordinary life, (as ideally I do theirs), will get further than those who condemn it or idolize it foolishly.
I am wonderful, wacky, and wise...
Okay, since there's no way to add little notes, I am going to say check out some of my tests above. I just realized how spot on they are!
