I relate well to women and I am open to different kinds of relationships. At this point in my life I would like to find someone for a long-term committed polyamorous relationship, but 'friends with benefits' is another fun new way of relating. I also have female buddies, 'just friends', but good friends with whom we can be ourselves without having to wear masks. Yes, I also have male friends, mostly fellow musicians.
I maintain a daily hatha yoga practice, and I love to dance, so I have become an aficionado of Nia, Zumba, and Five Rhythms. I love to play music on my flutes, clarinet and drums, and I play at local kirtans. I go to India every winter to play with the many musicians who congregate there. I have just finished translating and editing a book for a spiritual teacher.
I have spent a significant part of my life residing in other countries, and I have always been drawn to mysticism, perhaps my religious affiliation is best described as "Hind-Jew", but I can't abide too much orthodoxy.
I am sexually enthusiastic, but having had the opportunity to sow wild oats over the last few years I realize that the best sex comes with a real heart connection. I like eye contact and smiles to lead to caressing and kisses etc., but without the connection it can be...off.
I have been practicing Taoist chakra energy channeling for twenty years. I have great control and can stay "interested" for a long time. I am gentle and lovingly expressive: I am energetic, but I don't like rough stuff or anal. I definitely don't get off on sadism or masochism; my way is to send light and love to everyone, starting with the person in bed with me!
I have been married for 15 years to a gorgeous blond goddess with a heart of gold, and we have an incredible 14 year-old boy. We are in an open marriage, or, if you prefer, polyamorous. We decided about six years ago to let our marriage metamorphize from a caterpillar into a butterfly by opening our horizons to new erotic and emotional experiences with people who understand that we are dedicated to each other but open to new fun and love in our lives. She has had a boyfriend for five years and I have had a girlfriend who with whom I am now strictly platonic, but the good news is that, by and large, it has been a very positive experience. So if you are even curious, don't let my being married stop you. If you like me, you'll like her, and if you like her, she'll like you.
I translate and edit books for a living. I recently completed a book for my spiritual teacher, Mooji. I am enjoying being an active dad. Since my son already speaks Spanish and Portuguese from our foreign sojourn, we are now starting in with some French.
