    Jade Gate Studio in Portland, OR is hosting a Year of the White Tiger erotic art show and after party, 6:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 13th, FetLife event announcement

    Topic: How do you choose a poly partner?

    Joreth, Pepper, Franklin and Minx discuss the two aspects of this question: how do you find, meet and get to know partners, and how do you vet them? Joe, Brendan, Polina and Jessica commented via Facebook that they simply run into people in everyday life, often when they are not looking, and get to know people that they like and who treat them well.

    Jeff asks for feedback via Facebook on a situation in which he made first physical contact (holding hands) with a new partner in his current partner’s presence, which led to a fight.

    • You can’t get what you don’t ask for
    • If all your relationships in the same bad way, maybe it is you
    • If sex is becoming boring after a while, maybe you are letting it
    • Don’t expect to change your partner
    • A partner who is nice to you but not the waitress is not a nice person
    • (I googled monkeysphere too! -fs)

    • it’s possible to love somebody but have them not be a good partner for you
    • What you get out depends on what you put in
    • a person has cheated on somebody with you cannot be trusted to not cheat on you
    • Be wary of a person who trashes their exes

    Hamilton wrote in to talk about his great New Years Eve with his two lovers and lots of wine.

    12:10 Is He Not Into me?
    Krista wrote in through facebook and told her story. She is in a situation where maybe one of her lovers is not really into her. Krista wants to know, what does that concept mean to poly people? Minx gives her impressions of the book “He Is Not Really Into You.”; Minx talks about how different relationships are different and that is OK. Poly has benefits that monogamy doesn’t have. If one person does not fulfill all our needs, we look for those needs in another. A relationship will fall to its own level.

    20:15 Feedback
    CJ wrote in and recommended Joe Haldeman, The World Series; Pechu Jay called and thanked Minx and judges for choosing her picture for Pimp Your Boobs; Stewart from Kansas City called in with his props for the podcast and his thoughts on massage.
