Since coming out to myself as a dominant last spring/summer, I spent time reading books and websites about D/s. I also went to my first munch in the local community. I'm fortunate enough that my various "alt" social circles (LARP/Gamer, sci-fi fandom, BDSM and kink, poly, etc.) intersect, so it's easy for me to find people to talk to if needed. However, there's times that I have questions that I don't want to ask a friend about (yet), or there may be a particular topic my friends aren't familiar with.
I know I'm not alone in this experience, which is why I want to tell you about a resource: Kink Academy. This is a website that provides on-demand sex education on a variety of topics.
- Before I jump into my review, I want to let you know that I'm not being compensated for this. I paid for my own membership cost out of pocket and am doing this review without prompting from the site's creators. In other words, I'm writing this because I really want to get the word out. :)
So you're probably wondering ... "why the silence?"
I had some ideas on stuff to write on, but current events at the time shifted things from "this is an uber-cool thing to write about!" to "Shit.

We are less than a week away from the Poly Living Seattle Conference and PLN Summit. Between what we've seen in the media and what's being discussed on various forums, polyamory and relationship choice are hot topics. Curious about where the trends are when it comes to the polyamory movement? I will share some of the highlights here over the next several days:
Despite it being after midnight on the night before a work day (Monday even!) I wanted to take a few minutes to get the word out on current events that have impacted a fellow activist.
Today is my last day as a Council member for MNPoly. I'm still helping with their website, but I will no longer have to "lead" the group. I have a couple of huge poly activism projects on my plate that have caused me to focus more on a national level than on a local, social level.
To give you guys an idea of what I'm talking about on being busy, here's what my convention calendar looks like:
I am strangely okay with this. Actually, I'm very overjoyed by this. It will be a vacation. A wake-up call. A clue-by-four. A chance for people to take a break and re-assess things.
