"As a feminist, this is just wrong that this should be happening to you. My advice is that as a society of rationals we need to drop the use of the words slut, promiscuity, and other archaic words that have been used to describe women who are sexual…"

Jacklyn Marianne Land replied to Brother Eduardo's discussion Monogamy: Another Evil Influence of Religion in the group Secular Sexuality
"I think that would be wonderful, especially because I am polyamorous. Monogamy is a terrible expectation because we humans need sexual variety like we need variety in our everyday lives as social beings. It is because much of the major religions say…"

"I dislike all irrationality and no religion is rational.  Further, the moderate, "nice" religious folk give cover to the fundies by saying, "It's a matter of faith," as if faith, itself, were not a great evil."

Polyamorous and bisexual

Posted on June 30, 2011 at 8:58pm 6 Comments

It seems the worst thing you can be is a bisexual polyamorous Atheist. People seem shocked when I or my partner tell them we are in an open relationship. My mom tells me that I need to be careful with my reputation. While discussing swingers in my Social Deviance class, I brought up polyamory because I had told my professor about my beliefs in a discussion, and he felt it would be good to discuss it because the textbook didn't discuss it, and students should know diversity; well, the…

Thanks for your response. I hadn't heard of the Feminist Porn Festival. If we can wrest some market share of porn out of the hands of masculinist men, and portray a sex-positive feminist alternative, great! More power to you, Jacklyn.

Welcome, Jacklyn! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends.

If you don't mind unsolicited advice from another woman in an open relationship, you are obviously relatively liberated compared to the mainstream. If you're in college, it would be a huge step down in class as well as women's lib to become a porn star. Acting and modelling are very competitive. Best to secure a "day job" with your college education, to fall back on when you can't pay the rent.
