I am an explorer, a sensualist, an adventurer. Life is short and chock full of too many things to experience them all. So I love 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 (8 years and counting!) and my partner lovingly supports me in these explorations. Life is good. :)
How about some buzzwords of things that I like or describe me? Autodidactic, burner/maker, ecstatic dance, egalitarianism, feminist, GGG, late harvest Gewürztraminer, metta and karuna, polyamory and open relationships, radical self-expression, sacred sexuality, sapiosexuality, snuggling (especially if it involves nuzzling), yin yoga
I think relationships are very organic: Between the emotional disconnect of "friends with benefits" and the enduring commitment of "life partners", there is a whole continuum of ways we can interact with others, but that seems strangely unexplored in our culture. But it's a wide 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.
If you want some more clues about me, check out my question answers - I've commented on a number of them with some details that shed more light on what makes me tick, or at least whatever witty thought the question provoked.
And I want to share two quotes I delight in -- the first for its whimsy, and the second for its critical distinction.
The first: "There are two types of people in this world: Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data."
And "Consent is not the absence of a 'no' but the presence of a 'yes'"...
I'm rather strongly in the camp of "yes means yes" and explicit consent.
