I'm in a relationship with a wonderful woman with whom I'm incredibly happy. So I'm only interested in meeting people who can add to and partake in our happiness. Not sure how that would work--never having been in this essentially polyamorous situation before--but contact me if after reading my profile you have any good ideas.

Sex: I'm fascinated by its curious hold on the imagination beyond its obvious value in propagating the species (Savage Love is my favorite newspaper column on my favorite subject). Living with my girlfriend I've finally discovered what the sex life of a bonobo must be like, and I totally dig it.
Love: How is it that in spite of being wired for random sex like bonobos we have a penchant for falling in love with each other & pairing off? It makes no sense, & yet we know it happens, we've felt it, we've fallen in & out of love, but do we understand it? Can we say what it really amounts to? Yet we devoutly wish for it to happen again. Now I'm in love again & finding it more wonderful than ever & it feels more sturdy & lasting & profound than ever before, so I don't lack for love.
