All three adult members of polyamorous family deemed child's parents by Newfoundland judge

on Wednesday, 13 June 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

The decision is the first of its kind in Canada

Financial Post In the first decision of its kind in Canada, all three adult members of a polyamorous family have been recognized as parents of a child. Two months ago, Justice Robert Fowler of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court (Family Division) in the case of Re C.C., decided the adults would be named as parents of the child born within their three-way relationship. In the introduction to his decision, Justice Fowler described the unconventional St. John’s household: “J.M. And J.E. are the two male partners in a polyamorous relationship with C.C., the mother of A., a child born of the three-way relationship in 2017. The relationship has been a stable one and has been ongoing since June 2015. None of the partners in this relationship is married and, while the identity of the mother is clear, the biological father of the child is unknown.”

There’s a difference between kinky and abusive and we need to be clear about that

If you’re planning to have kinky sex with someone from the world of BDSM, they’ll ask you about limits. Preferences. Hard limits and soft ones, likes and dislikes. They won’t (or at least they absolutely shouldn’t) just start tying you up.

The advocates were joined by DC Council member David Grosso, who supports their efforts at gaining workers status in the District. “I’m out to show my support for decriminalization of sex work,” he said.

Grosso introduced a bill promoting sex workers rights last year in the DC Council. “I’m seeing some movement from my colleagues and the city,” he said.

Sex worker advocates are also urging an end to SESTA and FOSTA, bills passed by Congress in March targeting online sex worker communities. These communities were formed to help protect workers and are essential for their online well-being in the digital age, according to Siouxsie Q. James, Director of Policy and Industry Relations, Free Speech Coalition.

Sex Workers Say The Law Meant To Protect Them Could Kill Them

on Friday, 08 June 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

Buzzfeed During Friday’s lobbying day, sex workers, armed with packets of information and talking points, fanned out across the Capitol, meeting in small groups with 28 House offices. To a casual observer, the activists clutching folders for congressional staffers and dressed in conservative business attire looked like any other constituent group making the rounds on the Hill. Similar lobbying blitzes also occurred elsewhere, including Nevada, California, and Washington state, with sex workers meeting with not only congressional staff but also with state and local officials.

“In general, I’ve found that people who engage in forms of expansive sexuality such as kink are more creative or imaginative in their jobs or recreational life,” she says. “The culture of kink supports their creative drives. It gives them a space to play with the limits and boundaries of their bodies and minds, and with mental states such as surrender, fear, playfulness and surprise. In that sense, kink’s not so different from art, design or any creative venture. It’s a totally valid form of self-expression.”

Marriage, deconstructed: The next battle for marriage equality could mean the end of marriage

on Tuesday, 05 June 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


“We’re moving toward more of that unbundling, deconstructing of marriage down into parts so that people can access them and so we can allow for more creativity in family configurations,” said Diana Adams, an attorney based in New York City and Frankfort, Germany, whose practice focuses on guiding people involved in untraditional relationships. “Historically, you’re either married or you’re not married. This allows for the possibility of acknowledging families as they really exist in the United States. … I hope in 15 years we see a movement toward people being able to create legal relationships with the person or people of their choosing without the government being the arbiter of whether their sexual or romantic relationship is worthy of getting tax and immigration and other benefits.”

Expanding the Boundaries of Kink at International Mr. Leather

on Sunday, 03 June 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


At the leather contest, I photographed multiple leathermen wearing sexy femme outfits. At the pup mosh, I took pictures of a person whose manly shaved head contrasted their sexy rubber dress and high heels. And in the leather market, I watched a sheepish young man with a scruffy beard try on a leather corset, then beam at his reflection: “I look cute!”

Three’s not a crowd: The rise of polyamory

The Weekly Review

“If people are honest about who in their lives matters to them, not just sexuality but in terms of a range of relationships they have, most people would have more than one person who they care about in a profound and significant way,” she says. “Rather than thinking non-monogamy is just some sideline freaky practice … [it’s important to get people] to think about how all of us arrange our intimate lives in complex ways.”
