Is an Open Relationship right for you?
This week's blog post about open relationships is courtesy of an article that I wrote for Elephant Journal several months ago, called "Poly..agony". It is about my own personal experience in an open relationship and what I found about myself.
I also talk about lessons that I learned the hard way.
Recently a friend of mine asked if there was anything I would change about the article now that some time has passed and the rawness of my first true polyamorous relationship has dissipated.
I am livid about a recent Huffington Post article espousing how one could not only hold together, but thrive in a sexless marriage.
I posted this article on Facebook and the responses I got ranged from "unbelievable" to "self-imposed sexual abuse".
The more I sat with this article the angrier I became especially considering the source which until now I believed to be extremely sex positive and one of the few nationally respected publications that actually deals with sex intelligently. The fact that this was about couples 50 plus pissed me off even more.
