Was a small bunch of people who got together a few times to try to straddle the canyon that is human relationships & sexuality.
It was a leap to far and my energy was broached when no one else wanted to step up and play a leadership role. I also didn’t provide clarity about the groups purpose and that certainly contributed to waning energy in all that attended.
Polyamory can genuinely work, but as I have come to understand, it will struggle to compete with marriage for a few reasons;
1. Marriage has a head start (of a few hundred years or so), and
2. It’s different and Australians are a conservative lot when it comes to human sexuality. That keeps poly in the dark for the most part, which IMHO it doesn’t deserve.
3. And just like any relationship, it takes work and potentially more than marriage because of its openness. That can be a good thing, because as you may know, hard work is good for the mind & body and it gets you places.
On a positive note, this blog did survive and has morphed into what you see in front of you now.
I am going to continue chipping away with posts putting my opinion out there for people to debate, slag off, moan about or on the rare occasion say thankyou.
The foundation of human sexuality always needs work in my humble opinion.
And it will help keep me sane in an insane world.
