15:45 Topic: How and when to come out to a “normal” potential partner?
minx has been flirted with by a normal person she met through work–how and when is the appropriate time to come out as poly and/or into BDSM? First date too soon? Third date too late? Don’t date vanillas at all? How much honesty is too much honesty? What do you think?

20:45 Poly in the Media
In more positive sexual news, a Minnesota church has voted to stop performing civil marriages for heterosexuals because civil marriage isn’t offered to same-gender couples. Yay for religious institutions seeing the unfairness of the marriage laws! 23:55 In this article, the author muses on whether gays should adopt polyamory as a relationship model instead of going the way of monogamy and “live their life in the illustion that the only working model of couple is the one inculcated to us by a heteronormative society.”
