Hey there Guys. Just this week I had an interesting interaction with a colleague about gay relationships. Sadly I have to say that the interaction left me rather disappointed and angry that when offered the opportunity to discuss the wide and varied topics available about gay relationships that delightfully tired chestnut appeared: Monogamy Vs. Non-Monogamy.
I was angry, I was pissed off. I am sick to death of gay relationships being driven down to levels so simplistic that the sole decision of monogamy vs non-monogamy is the only factor on the validity of gay relationships. I had to get it out. I had to speak up, yes, I had to make a video…
Dr George’s Thoughts On Gay Relationships
As you can see I am sincere in my beliefs that gay relationships are not purely defined by who we choose or not choose to have sex with.
I have been with my wonderful partner Nick for more then 12 years. Our choice to not be sexually exclusive to each other does not limit, impair, hobble or otherwise make our love for each other less valid or caring. Our love is strong, respectful and to be quite frank not the business of any other person.
Endless engagement of the monogamy vs. non-monogamy debate as the only scale of validity of relationships is not only disrespectful but down right bloody medieval. Isn’t it time we all grew up and let other people live life as they wish?
Ok rant over. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
BTW if you are looking for a great book on how to move forward and review your own sexual beliefs check out this great book: The Ethical Slut. I highly recommend it.
