BS societal rules brought about by religious teachings have resulted in aggressive sexual behavior on the part of women being frowned upon.
As long as whatever happens, happens between consenting adults then there's no problem... how can exploring one's sexuality be "having your cake and eating it" ?
When did ignorance become a point of view ?.
So far this thread has not had ONE reply from someone who is actually in a working, successful open relationship. (Nor am I, nor do I want to be)
IMO the concept looks good on paper but cannot go the distance.
I have a friend who introduced his wife to the concept of an open relationship, and for a while they had a real "Swinging time". Guess what.. HIS heart ended up being broken, because she fell for someone else, while he still loved her deeply. Now he regrets the whole misadventure..
Um, no one on a tech forum has commented on an off topic thread? Small sample group, no?
Okay: I am in a polyamorous marriage. I have been married for 9 years and my husband and I both have romantic relationships with other people. Everyone knows about the relationships and everyone knows each other. Honesty and communication are key. <url removed>. I got married because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with my husband, but not without having other people in my life.
Also I am 31, as is my husband. My boyfriend is 29 and other members of the local poly group range from 25-60yrs, although most are under 45. The ZAPoly group was started by a woman. I started the CapeTownPoly group and we have mostly women as the driving force of the groups.
Ethical non-monogamy is something you might want to look into for other forms of open relationships.

Not sure if RAS but do tell us more, Princess.
If one has multiple sex partners, is there ever time to reply to threads like these ?
