I’m a poly, kinky, pagan, heteroflexible, sex-positive, pro-feminist, almost-forty white male. I've done a lot of different things in my life, but right now I am a full time graduate student.

Time is the one thing you can never have enough of, and time management is an essential relationship skill, particularly for poly people.

I always love it when the Universe provides me with ready-made answers, don’t you? When I was first asked to write a column on polyamory for fearlesspress.com, I was immediately hit by all the possibilities. What to write about first? Where to start?
