San Diego’s kinky roots

San Diego City Beat

If a structured class doesn’t suit, just a little open-mindedness can go a long way. “Those in the BDSM community are some of the best communicators and the most versed in boundaries and consent, and caring for their partner’s needs,” says Fokos. “It would be amazing to see these healthy, communicative practices as prevalent in the mainstream as they are in the kink world.”

The everyday lives of the non-monogamous

BBC

The Open Photo Project aims to reduce stigma about consensual non-monogamous relationships. There are many different relationship types which fall under the heading of ethical, consensual non-monogamy but at the heart of it all parties have agreed that each may have romantic and/or sexual relationships with other partners. In one recent study from the US 21% of the study’s participants reported having had some kind of non-monogamous relationship. However the figures could be higher as many people are not open about being in these types of relationships due to the stigma attached. The founder of the project and photographer Erika Kapin explains why she wanted to photograph everyday lives of the non-monogamous.

BBC

Noni says polyamory is not actually new but it is still taboo, though that could be changing. “People have been practising polyamory for as long as people have existed,” she says. “But Scotland is very much a monogamous country.

I would not say we are blazing a trail but we are definitely creating an environment that allows for a healthy community.”

and their relationship cheat sometimes, too. So why is that?

Take a peek inside my January Boho Berry Box!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblr

When I started my Butler’s Book journey about a year ago a good friend recommended checking out the Boho Berry Tribe on Facebook. This lead me down a wonderful rabbit hole of community and resources. Kara, the owner of Boho Berry, is a wealth of information when it comes to journaling and an inspiration as an entrepreneur. When she launched her Boho Berry Box subscription in late 2017 I jumped at the chance to snag a box. Today I want to share with you what came in the Snail Mail edition (January 2018) in preparation for #INCOWRIMO

Here’s a peak of what’s in the box!
