9:30 Topic: Labeling your loves

Polyamory can lack really great terms for your partners. What do you use instead of “girlfriend” or “boyfriend” or “partner.” Got anything better that you use? Partner, lover, sweetie, paramour, sidekick, topkick, anchor?

8:15 Interview: Lee Harrington on rituals and labels

Lee Harrington is a spiritual and erotic educator, gender explorer, eclectic artist and published author and editor on human sexuality and spiritual experience. He is a nice guy with a disarmingly down to earth approach to the fact that we are each beautifully complex ecosystems, and we deserve to examine the human experience from that lens.

Harrington on the importance of recognizing that the label we use is rooted in our own experience and might not carry the same meaning for others in the community. Also, what is a ritual, what meaning does it carry and why are rituals important (or not)?
