    A New Life

    I love my husband, sometimes. He meets most of my needs financially but thats about as far as it goes. I miss romance and the feeling of having a man melt over me. I am very attractive but I feel like my husband is now used to or maybe even bored with me. I want to feel the...

    I want a relationship

    where my Gf would date and have sex with other men. I am very loving and committed and would never cheat myself. It is something that really helps me feel very deeply and passionately about my partner. I can feel the jealousy but it turns to love and passion for my Gf!

    For me one of the key things of having a good strong relationship is being able to be completly open with your love, To be able to trust eachother to the point where you can share anything with one another and feel comfortable doing it!

    Next Time

    I think I will just go for it. Less worry about cheating that way... Plus, it might be fun to share a girl, since I'm bi anyway.(((Takes defensive lineman's pose to ward off the pervs who will undoubtedly go after me for this story)))

    My Experience With An Open Relationship

    In Light

    In light of the comments upon my previously story in this group - I felt I should write another. For most of the years leading up to the grand age of 21, I was blindly faithful both in people and in love. I'm serious, I was the guy who would give you the shirt off his back if you...

    I Don't Want For Myself, But Am Open To The Idea

    it would have to be a case of "what i don't know won't hurt me". and the other women would have to understand they are only guests. jealousy isn't a problem for me, so much as women being enemies. all in all, it sounds like a very bad idea, but it might be right for him.

    Open Relationship

    Most people want to have an open relationship for personal satsification. My reason for doing so is to fulfill my partners desires. I do not believe in being dominated, humilated or cockold. I do believe that people can be loved and their partner still have free will. If someone...

    Some Day

    My fiance and I have been talking about opening our relationship for a few months now. It was mostly my idea and he was pretty strongly opposed at first. We have been together for almost five years so it was kind of a shock to him. Now he is warming up to the idea. We both...

    I Have This Problem With Sexual Monogamy...

    I never cheat, but I always want to. I feel like I'm just saying the same thing everyone else is thinking. Why can someone be so happy in a particular relationship but crave that uninhibited, passionate, occasional sex? I love my man, but being with him since I was 24 makes me...

    I'm Aching For This

    This past summer I admitted to myself that I don't want monogamy. As much as I tried to be the monogamous type, it really didn't sit right with me. I stopped believing that one person is enough for me. I have enjoyed being single and realize how much that means to me. I love...
