I am an explorer, a sensualist, an adventurer. Life is short and chock full of too many things to experience them all. So I try to never pass up the opportunity to try something new, even if I'm not sure I'll like it. I'm in a very happily married open relationship and my partner lovingly supports me in these explorations. Life is good. :)
Between the discardability of "friends with benefits" and the commitment of "life partners", there is a whole continuum of ways to interact with others, and strangely seems somewhat unexplored in our culture. But it's an open space where one can bring connection, desire, curiosity, trust, and touch to another person. Right now I'd love to find someone also interested in a heart + body connection like that.
How about some buzzwords? These all apply to me or interest me in some shape or fashion, and are presented in alphabetical order for no particular reason...
- ecstatic dance
- late harvest Gewürztraminer
- metta and karuna
- polyamory and open relationships
- radical self-expression
- sacred sexuality
- third wave feminism
- yin yoga
Also feel free to read my question answers - I've annotated a number of them with further commentary that shines more light on what makes me tick.
And I want to share two quotes I delight in -- the first for its whimsy, and the second for its critical distinction:
> "There are two types of people in this world: Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data."
> "Consent is not the absence of a 'no' but the presence of a 'yes'"
