OpeningUp.net Religious Attitudes Towards Polyamory Among organized religions, attitudes towards polyamory vary from extreme discomfort and distaste to complete acceptance. At one end of that spectrum, conservative or fundamentalist sects of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism abhor extra-marital sex and base family on a strident sexual exclusivity—for women. At the other end of the spectrum, Paganism and sacred sexuality of several varieties celebrate a multiplicity of gods and lovers. The Big Three in the United States—Christianity, Islam, and Judaism—share the same theological foundations that mandate heterosexuality and marriage to create children. The sexual double standard that allows men far more latitude than women is deeply engrained in these religions, and society. google images Christianity At the most sex-negative end of the scale, some conservative forms of Christianity strictly prohibit sexuality for pleasure and mandate stark boundaries that confine sexuality to married heterosexuals who are trying to have children. Islam

What’s a metamour? On my terms | SoloPoly The “metamour” concept is like the vase in this picture. Don’t see the vase? Only see the faces? That’s the problem I’m talking about! “Metamour” is an especially weird bit of poly-speak. But still, I think it’s a surprisingly useful and important term… NOTE: This is one of a series of posts where I define how I’m using some key relationship terms in this blog. New words, even awkward or silly-sounding ones, make the most sense when you need to discuss something that isn’t supposed to exist (or at least, not be visible) in common society. In our culture, where monogamy is a dominant paradigm (as well as a strongly held and emotionally charged common assumption and value), you’re only supposed to have “serious” intimate relationships with one person at a time. All the terms we have for stepping outside that norm are negative or trivializing: cheating, fooling around, messing around, playing the field, two-timing, commitment-phobic, womanizing, philandering, etc. “OMG!

Grog's Fishing Knots Index Fishing Knots Welcome to Fishing Knots These animated knots are primarily used for fishing, but some are useful in other applications. Select the knots from the index above or from the Fishing Usage page. Selection The selection of knots is based on feedback and advice from many expert fishing contributors to this website. Fishing Knot Characteristics Fishing knots are designed to be tied in monofilament or braided fishing line and to run through the eyes and rings of a fishing rod or rig. Fly Fishing Knots The picture on the left shows one typical system for fly fishing. Lubricating/Tightening/Trimming Fishing knots are intended to be pulled extremely tight before use. The ends of most fishing knots can, and should, be trimmed closely against the knot. Breaking Strain Some words have already been written on the home page about knots weakening rope. Ideal breaking strength is tested by winding each end around very large diameter drums.
Fuck Yeah Polyamory I loved finding your blog here, I think it’s amazing! This is really the first blog (other than one of my own) that I felt like I could comfortably share my own poly story. :) My fiance and I have been together for over a little more than 3 years now, and we had been discussing opening up our relationship for the past year and what it would mean. As we got into 2012, I met the guy who would become my now-boyfriend and that was an interesting experience. At first we were on shaky terms with the concept, we talked a lot about it and established some temporary “rules” in order to make it a more comfortable transition. As time passed and tensions eased, we all got comfortable with each other and I am very happy to say that the three of us are fantastically happy! Both of them have been encouraged to date others if they wish, and I’ve been on the receiving end of details varying from PG to X-rated. Lots of love!

Poly-Architecture 101: Building Hierarchies « Slut, Ph.D. It is one of the most often misunderstood truisms of hierarchical polyamory that stable and highly functioning primary relationships are essential for successful (hierarchical) poly life. It’s not the truism itself that people misunderstand; it’s that most people misunderstand *why* you need a stable and highly functioning primary relationship for a successful hierarchical poly life. For the rest of this post, I’m going to rely on a metaphor of architecture and houses. In this metaphor, hierarchical polyamory tends to involve building a house with someone (your primary), and then coming up with ways to incorporate other partners (a guest bedroom; four guest bedrooms; a cottage in the back; a shed in the back; a dungeon in the basement… you get the idea). Fact: You need a firm foundation so the house doesn’t fall down When most people think about the idea that you need a strong primary relationship for your poly life, they think that it’s only for this reason.
