Speaking of partners, mine, including the ones I don't live with, know I'm on here of course, and I'm not open to DL relationships. I've learned the hard way that dating guys who are in the closet doesn't do good things for my mental or emotional health, so please be out.
Physically I try to keep in good shape between biking and hitting the gym. I have a number of tattoos and piercings, but I won't scare mom if you bring me home to meet her.
I spend a lot of time with a camera in my hands, and I also enjoy reading, biking, hiking in the woods, and visiting museums or other interesting places.
It's worth mentioning that in my erotic life I am quite kinky, although I'm open to and enjoy non-kinky activities and relationships too. That said, if you think being kinky or poly is "wrong" or want someone to "save" I am really not your guy (learned that the hard way too).

The last few years I've been doing quite a good bit of photography, which I'm hoping to transition over time into something that brings in some extra money someday. You can see my mainstream photography at my website: http://www.winterwindphoto.com.
I'm was also an associate editor, and regular contributor to the LGBT politics and culture blog "The Bilerico Project."
My spiritual life is deeply important to me. I am a polytheistic pagan and involved in the pagan community as a religious leader and as an educator. That said, my spirituality is my own, and I don't expect everyone I'm involved with to share it. But like with the kink, I'm not interested in folks trying to "save" me or convert me to their faith or lack thereof.
Fiction Authors: Tanya Huff, Ilona Andrews, Jack McDevitt, Lynn Flewelling, Anne Bishop, David Weber, Heidi Cullinan, Amy Lane, Damon Suede, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, John Scalzi, and Andy Weir gets a mention simply because I loved The Martian *so hard*.
I listen to podcasts quite regularly as well. My favorite podcasts include The Risk! Podcast, Planet Money, 99% Invisible, The Allusionist, Snap Judgement, Radiolab, This American Life, Ask Me Another, and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.
I'm a fan of movies and TV too, although I can't really go to movie theaters. Last Week Tonight and @Midnight are two shows I watch most consistently right now. I've also seen every episode of Air Crash Investigations (many times) because I'm a giant dork. And other than that, I watch tons of documentaries, anime, and the occasional action or comedy flick.
-My spiritual life and faith
-My partners, lovers, and family (of choice & birth)
-Some way to express myself creatively, be it a way to write, take pictures, or an audience to tell stories to
And of course sex, from both a personal and professional perspective.
- You are experienced with/open to polyamorous relationships
- Talking about sex doesn't bother you. Given what I do for work...
- You aren't transphobic! While I am cis-gender, many of my closest friends and some of my partners are trans*. Transphobia is a deal breaker for me.
- You know what an "intactivist" is, are one yourself, or are curious.
- You can be civil to someone with a non-traditional faith
- If the idea of going shooting (photos or guns), having sex (of some form), and watching Top Gear over a dinner of Thai food sounds like an awesome day to you.
