I’ve been spending a bit of time recently reading and following varies threads on poly discussion groups and forums.
I’ve noticed a few things about the poly community which I’ve found quite interesting
“polyamory is loving however/whoever makes you happy … as long as you aren’t unicorn-hunting, don’t operate a OPP, etc”.
From my perspective I can identify two relatively clearly defined tribes based upon the way they react to simple questions on forums and I’m going to try and define them.

I read a post a while back when someone was obviously in a bad place and struggling with their own personal insecurities and there manifestation as depression.
They have listed each and numbered them. It had obviously taken a lot of thought, courage and general self analysis to achieve.
I believe that by performing this action they were able to understand themselves a bit more and move forward while confronting their own personal issues.

An issue I’ve noticed coming up on a regular basis with poly discussion groups is the subject of equality. It’s also a topic that has also popped up a number of times for me personally since moving to a polyamorous lifestyle.
“Primus Inter Pares”
Is a Latin phrase meaning first among equals. The phrase infers that a person is formally considered equivalent to others in a group, but is also superior in some attribute.
I find myself asking is equality actually possible or necessary?

It’s always good to read about someone else’s hopes, dreams, desires and experience, especially when well written. This is why I’ve chosen to reblog the following post.
Little sections like the following really got my attention..
“breasts heaving with deep breaths, my finger explores hot,wet depths,
so arousing and exciting, bottom lip your teeth is biting,
focussing on husband’s adoring stare, what others might see, don’t really care.”
So get comfortable, sit back and read this wonderful piece, you won’t regret it, I didn’t 😉

I’ve discovered that there is a massive difference between the title “Daddy” to “Dominant” in a D/s relationship and also between Daddy as a title for a father. I personally had many reservations about this title, but have come to realise it is nothing more than that: a title.
A Daddy Dom is not interested in any acts of pedophilia, incest or any other paraphernalia act associated with children. The title is often unfortunately often misunderstood and associated with that, which is so wrong.
When a baby girl calls her Daddy by title, the feeling is not associated with feelings that she might get when she calls her really father the same title. This is generally the same with any other multi-use word in our language wonderfully confusing language.

Privilege is a daunting subject at the best of times, no matter how good you think you are at practising equality.
“What is Privilege?”
A “Privilege” in it’s simplest form, is a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group that hasn’t normally been specifically earned.
It would in fact be very possible to write a whole series of books on this subject and how it impacts our carefully crafted poly relationships.
Just using the word “Privilege” can be perceived as an accusation, a poly failing or even promote feelings of personal inner guilt.
“What’s the reason for this?”

“It grow’s inside us
That disease that we all dread
But our hope remains”
My thoughts are with someone today 🙂
“We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up or fight like hell.”
