Sex and sexuality

`Natalie, my husband kisses your hands, and I the rest.' - Collette, in a note to Natalie Barney

`I regret to say that we of the F.B.I. are powerless to act in cases of oral-genital intimacy, unless it has in some way obstructed interstate commerce.' - J. Edgar Hoover

`Don't label me. I'm a people person.' - Sandra Bernhardt

I'm bi and poly. I host some of the regular Poly Boston events, and I can sometimes be found at the Boston-area bi brunches, which happen twice a month.

This page is mostly just a list of resources, but someday I hope to put up more of my own stuff.

Emergency contraception: The Society for Human Sexuality's Concise Guide to Safer Sex says the following about contraceptive failure: ``If unwanted pregnancy is a possible outcome of the condom failure, you should call 1-888-NOT-2-LATE to find out about emergency contraception in your area.'' I'm repeating that here because I think anybody who might ever have vaginal intercourse with a person of the other sex should know that number. (Incidentally, emergency contraception is not the same thing as abortion, although people who are opposed to abortion are often opposed to emergency contraception as well: emergency contraception prevents a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterine wall, preventing a pregnancy from starting. In that, it's similar to the way an IUD works.)

Alternatives to Marriage Project: My friends Marshall and Dorian have started the Alternatives to Marriage Project, which `provides resources, advocacy, and support to people who have chosen not to get married, are unable to marry, or are in the process of deciding whether marriage is right for them.' While the organization isn't directly aimed at queer or poly people, it's certainly relevant to us; their site says `Some, like same-gender couples and those in relationships of more than two people, are not legally allowed to marry.' They're working on research for a book and looking for unmarried couples to interview.

Bi (and other queer) stuff

Boston-area events and groups

Biversity Boston is a Boston-area bi social group. Events are open to all bi and bi-friendly people. There are lots of ad-hoc events, and also several regularly scheduled events each month. There's at least one event most weekends.

Rhode Island-area events

My friends Marshall and Dorian started Biversity Providence for folks in Rhode Island. Other bi and bi-friendly people who can get to events in the greater Providence area are also welcome.
