    Thanks for pushing back Jayson with Dan Savage. I like the way you explained it. I just think it’s slightly an escape from facing oneself wholeheartedly when there is more than one sexual life going on . Complicated and easier to bail on your partner and on yourself ..

      Thanks for sharing your experience Denise and listening in =)

  2. Andy

    Really appreciate the reframe Jayson around the fantasy of easy, blissful monogamy versus the reality of challenging/real world monogamy in an intimate partnership. And hell yes! I sign up for that challenge, embracing monogamy with my one sweetie along with the growth and stumbles and disconnection and harmony and fulfillment that implies.
