Kinky sex can rekindle the spark in the bedroom

Finding the type of kinky sex you want to give a try is a really important step. Going into a situation and saying you are open to anything is rarely true. Often times people have a limit but they are afraid to tell it to a partner. Disappointing your partner should never be a concern when you uncomfortable with an act.

But specific rules and parameters always vary. Some couples only date other couples, says Sheff. Other times, couples might agree on guidelines, such as: “don’t bring anyone home," “don’t have intercourse but you can fool around,” “don’t fall in love,” or “only on Tuesday nights,” notes Zapien.

BDSM: when is sadomasochism an act of domestic violence?

The Conversation

There are many good reasons for revisiting the principle in Brown and updating the law. Those who engage in S&M as part of a healthy sex life should be able to inflict consensual harm without being unfairly criminalised. But we also need to ensure that victims of abuse are protected. This is a delicate balancing act and it’s no surprise that successive governments have been unwilling to address the question of consent in this area.

The internet war on sex is here

But the arc of internet sex censorship is long, and it bends as far away from justice (and reason) as possible. Corporations controlling the internet had been steadily (and sneakily, hypocritically) moving this direction all along, at great expense to women, LGBT people, artists, educators, writers, and marginalized communities — and to the delight of bigots and conservatives everywhere.

New Facebook Policy Sparks Fears of Sex Talk Crackdown

on Thursday, 06 December 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

PC Magazine

The company has quietly updated its content-moderation policies to crack down on implicit requests for sex.

The expanded policy specifically bans "sexual slang," hints of "sexual roles, positions or fetish scenarios," and erotic art when mentioned with a sex act. Vague, but suggestive statements such as "looking for a good time tonight" when soliciting sex are also no longer allowed.

When Tumblr bans porn, who loses?

She also points out that many of Tumblr users are women, much or most of the explicit content on Tumblr “was made by, for, and about women,” and that Tumblr’s “all porn” reputation stems from the fact that “women were thrilled to finally find porn that fit their interests, and wanted to foster that community as much as possible.” The decision to squash all that, she says, is gendered, and a major loss.

“I’m just sad, plain and simple,” Stephanie Michelle says. “I built up relationships with my followers … I found artists and writers I fell in love with. Tumblr’s actions reinforce that sex workers and NSFW creators are bad and negative — that they simply shouldn’t exist.”

'Boring and normal’: The new frontier of polyamorous parenting

on Monday, 03 December 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

The Globe and Mail

Canadian courts are slowly beginning to recognize polyamorous families. In 2016, a British Columbia judge ruled that a Nanaimo father living with multiple partners deserved equal parenting time with his ex, despite her claim that the man’s poly lifestyle would hurt their son and daughter (the court disagreed). In April, a Newfoundland and Labrador judge recognized three polyamorous, unmarried adults (one woman and two men) as legal parents of the woman’s child, who was born in 2017. “I have no reason to believe that this relationship detracts from the best interests of the child,” Justice Robert Fowler stated in his decision. “Society is continuously changing and family structures are changing along with it.”

National Polyamory Day

on Friday, 23 November 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

November 23rd is National Polyamory Day. On that day in 2011, BC’s Supreme Court ruled that Canada’s so called “anti-polygamy law” does not apply to unformalized polyamorous households – clarifying that polyamory, as it is typically practiced in Canada, is legal and not a criminal act.

Prior to November, 23, 2011, it was questionable if polyamory was legal in Canada.

If you agree that people who are polyamorous are entitled to the same rights, privileges, and governmental accommodation that others have, please circulate this image to others on your blogs, in email, and on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Polyamory is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.

Thank you from the CPAA (Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association).
