Polyamorous relationships are notorious for not making it past the three year mark.. and many polyamorous relationships fall much shorter than even that. For a long time, that knowledge was a source of frustration for me. Yet another reason why polyamory is a less ‘valid’ relationship style, right? However, maybe it’s not a bug in the system. Maybe it’s a feature.
Browsing: negotiated non-monogamy
Cooper & Marilyn take a vacation to visit sexy friends from the Great White North. Dylan & Shira B. Katz haven’t been about to shut up about Burning Man and now you finally get to hear why. Listen as the crew discusses what Burning Man has to do with non-monogamy, who they camped with, and what a non-monogamous person can expect on the Playa. Ahoy! Burning Man; land of The Human Car(cass) Wash, The Snack Food Glory Hole, and a place where even the monogamous have an opportunity to open up a little.
So, yes, I shut down the site, rather entirely, for almost three weeks. Newer readers probably didn’t notice because the site was cycling through some of our old content, but there was certainly no NEW content being posted. It’s not that I was out of content, mind you, it’s that I was out of enthusiasm. You see, when I began Swingset it was intended to function not only as an educational resource for swingers, but a home to my personal swinging blog. A way I could write about the experiences and questions I’m having; a way I could get these thoughts out into the world. It WAS that for a time as well.
Dylan here – I visited Burning Man this year, and while I fully expected to have a mind-blowing experience, I found myself wrapped up in the loving arms of another woman, and unable to completely handle some of the consequences of that. I had my first little polyamorous experience, a “playawife” for a few days, but I needed to get some of what was on my mind out. So, this recording is me, on-site, at 8am the day after I decided that what I was doing wasn’t going to last. Take a listen, and tell me what you think.
We here at The Swingset are always happy to help with any questions or concerns…
