  1. Hi Minx, any chance of another try at a book club skypecast?

  2. Cunning Minx February 12, 2008 at 10:17 am · ·

    Yes, I do need to plan that, don’t I? I’ll pick a date this week. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. I really enjoy listening to your show. I’m quite new to poly.

    I thought you might be interested in this article in The Guardian today (UK Newspaper)

    (I think it actually is by *that* Linda Blair – I think she writes for The Guardian)

  4. Hi Minx!
    You have a listener from Italy!
    I am neither poly nor mono, I am solitary…
    However, I like your shows very much.
    I enjoy the way you talk about relationships and sex .
    The bdsm stuff baffles me, but if you like it, there must be something to it…
    Keep up the good work!
