How To Talk To Your Partner About Being With Someone Else

on Wednesday, 25 July 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


Being with another person can mean lots of different things, obviously, so make sure you and your partner cover what is and isn't OK. For example, maybe it's OK for you to sleep with the other person but not to date them romantically, or maybe certain sexual acts are reserved for your partner. Rader suggests asking yourselves: "Do you want to only have threesomes? Do you want to only sleep with other people when your partner is out of town? How often can this happen? Do you tell your partner all the details?" You also might want to discuss boundaries around how frequently you can see the other person.

“Why is it that we hold up this couple-type of approach that doesn’t really reflect or meet the needs of many, many Canadians,” asks Nick Mulé, associate professor at the School of Social Work at York University. “We know there are all kinds of relationships, such as (mixed orientation) and polyamorous relationships. Statistics Canada speaks to, you know, the fact that the fastest growing type of household is the single person.”

“Both are about communication, honesty, trust, love,” Sharon said. “It ideally should be the same exact thing, it’s just polyamory is with more than one person.” Isaac agreed, adding, “If you can’t be in a monogamous relationship, you can’t be in a polyamorous one.”

“My buddies and I started to bounce it around saying: ‘Hey that’d be kind of cool to stick your girlfriend to a Velcro wall and have sex,’ we all laughed, ‘you could stick her upside down.’ The idea became a rolling inside joke. After about six months, there was so much interest in this thing that I thought, ‘this is an idea worth pursuing.’ Some sort of a Velcro thing that you could stick your partner to. So we started bringing our girlfriends in on the joke and most of them said they wouldn’t mind doing that as long as they could get away. And that really stuck with me — from there I bought a sewing machine and taught myself how to sew. Then my brother, who has his own sound recording studio, and I developed the Velcro bed sheets, handcuffs and anchor pads accessories.”

on Saturday, 14 July 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


Women like Daniels and the two other dancers arrested at Sirens that night wind up with their mugshots and names in the paper, while club owners and customers generally skate by with a slap on the wrist or a ticket — that is, until a city attempts to finally eradicate clubs, usually when they're standing in the way of gentrification. It's a double standard that unfairly punishes working women while leaving those who purchase and profit from their work unscathed.

Love, Life, and Leather

While we as a community continue the battle for equality it would be dangerous for us to allow ourselves to be defined only by our sex lives. It reduces us, and would allow those who stand against us to see us as less than the vibrant, amazing humans that we are. Also dangerous would be to ignore that side of our lives completely, or to shame those who choose to love in their own way. To ignore our history, and the leather persons who came before to help pave the way for our rights and equal treatment. Among the leather, kink, and BDSM communities focus is put onto sex, but only in the most consensual of ways. Leather is about sex, and negotiation, history and community. For those that sit under the Leather Pride Flag, it is not only about the freedom to love who they love, but also how they love.

Couples in non-monogamous relationships have the same level of sexual and overall relationship satisfaction as those in monogamous ones, a new study finds.

“We compared relationship satisfaction through questions like ‘How often have you considered ending your relationship?’ and ‘How comfortable are you confiding in your partner?’ and averaged answers to find a general score,” Jessica Wood, the lead researcher and author of the study, told Moneyish. “We found that there were no differences within these two groups, and that people in consensual non-monogamous relationships and those in monogamous relationships reported very similar levels of relationship and sexual satisfaction with their primary relationships.”
