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.

‘I’m polyamorous, why should I limit my love?’

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. The more we engage with people and talk about it, the more accepted it is going to become, slowly but surely. I would not say we are blazing a trail but we are definitely creating an environment that allows for a healthy community.”

Of course women can fantasize about domination but still insist on consent

Washington Post

What we are asking of men is to know that women can fantasize about non-consent, but that it is supremely unsexy when men engage in it without, well, their consent. We can still want our romance novels and our movies and our rom-coms to traffic in those tropes while not wanting men to act this way without asking.

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!

Sex workers call for decriminalisation of industry to help lift stigma surrounding prostitution

ABC Australia

 

“For instance, private workers in Queensland cannot work together — so that would be classified as an illegal brothel,” he says. “That means that we cannot cost share, we cannot support each other, we can’t be there for each other’s safety. We are not really allowed to message other sex workers about our current location, or our activities, which is a safety strategy that has traditionally been used by sex workers for decades.”

A ‘Lifestyle Slave’ Is More Than a Sub Who Does All Your Chores for Free

The dynamic between a dominatrix and her 24/7 sub can be one of tender, mutual support.

Broadly

Pain Puppy helps Mistress Lucy keep her life organized by washing her sex toys, cleaning her dungeon, doing her grocery shopping, cleaning her house, feeding her pets, and all that stuff—basically, being her personal assistant. In exchange, she doms him, but it’s kind of like a life makeover. She sends him to wine tasting classes and makes him learn Japanese; she’s got him on a workout regime and a food plan, so he’s lost a lot of weight; and she’s trying to socialize him more and make him more open about his sexuality. He told me that he’s so much happier with his self-image and social life now than when he first met her. And she seems happy to transform his life. It’s kind of amazing to see.
