Polyamory – Could YOU make the proposition?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rsCdxctICE ..."It means you're my husband... but ... I can have a boyfriend"... WHAT THE F%*K?   As sophisticated a presentation of open marriage as Enchant TV has provided so far, I still found myself squirming when Keena made that statement in the first episode of Compersion. It was perfect-- an elegant packaging of a …

Mo’nique and Sidney’s Open Relationship – How it goes down

You may have heard some rumors about which celebrity couples are/were supposedly in open relationships- Will and Jada, Brad and Angelina, Mo'nique and Sidney, Ossie and Ruby. Well, Mo'nique and Sidney have set the story on them straight. If you're late (like I was) and you still haven't heard, to answer your question, yes they …

Sneak Peak: Compersion, a seductive drama on Enchant TV

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsOd0huTRLI COMPERSION What is compersion? My understanding is that it is the opposite of jealousy. It is gaining a sense of happiness through witnessing another person's happiness, particularly a lover's...even if that happiness doesn't directly involve you.

“I love you, honey. Now get the hell out of here!” – Happily married and living apart

No wonder so many of our parents and grandparents had separate beds. Some of them had separate rooms. For all their "traditionalism", they had some good ideas about how to keep relationships balanced through the manipulation of distance--ideas that some consider to be progressive nowadays. There is truly something to be said for the “man …

The Power of Touch, for better or worse…

Good touch is awesome.  It's immediate and intimate and provokes a slew of cognitive responses in a way that sight, smell, taste, and hearing just don't. Good touch has the power to heal and, in a sense, to create.  It influences the production of growth hormone in infants.  It has the power to alleviate the …

Is it unconditional love, “settling”, or submitting to reality?

Someone once told me that while detachment can be a very useful survival tool in certain situations, it should not be a way of life. Yet I’m finding that there are some circumstances and people with whom I have had to adopt a lifetime strategy of detachment. Well maybe I’m not employing the strategy of …

Female Viagra? Not quite…

I love Bill Maher and all unabashed commentators like him who know how to sum up bullshit.  Take, for example his comments regarding Addyi, the new "female Viagra": "...the new female sex pill, Addyi. Yes, that’s right.  There’s now a pill that makes women want more sex, but can also lower blood pressure and put …
