"I'm polymorphous, which should tell you everything you need to know."

Oh man. This right here, this is 90% of the reason I'm taking a break from the kink community right now. (5%: Because my job is sucking my soul out my nose; 5%: Because I can't get away from a certain group of people who apparently have NO OTHER LIFE and will be at ALL events anywhere in the area and continually give me a passive-aggressive hard time about not being kinky the correct way which they have scientifically determined.)

    Amazing, isn't it, how people take something that lets being an adult be fun--one of the few things that does, in my opinion, and makes it odd. Kinky folk are kind of like the S.C.A., in my opinion. The concept is interesting, but I really don't want to work that hard on my hobby.

  2. Bureaucratic sex. That... can't work.

  4. William - Kinky folk and the SCA are pretty much the same people. I don't mean they're like the same, I mean they're the same individuals. If you own a historically accurate sword, it basically goes without saying that you own a ballgag. And vice versa.

  5. I didn't think hospitals or nursing homes or wherever you work were soul-destroying; I thought they were incredibly stressful.

  6. GreenEarth - Okay, not my soul, just my energy, but unfortunately a lot of libido comes out with it sometimes. (And actually right now I work on an ambulance. It's really fun, it's just incredibly draining at times.)

  7. Holly, I can certainly appreciate stress killing your fun, My work schedule's 8, 10 hour days on, then six off. Days off one and two are dedicated to vegging out, then I gradually become human again.
    I feel bad though, I own not one but three authentic swords and still no ball gags. I guess I need to join the SCA and get mine at initiation?

  8. Heh... I've had a similar problem with polyamory myself: everyone expects you to be the same as they are, and react badly when you're yourself.

    I usually tell people to keep their noses out of my business, as I keep a sharp knife for removing them... ;)

    And I own LOADS of historically accurate swords, but no ball gags.

  9. I finally realized what was creeping me out about this video. It wasn't so much a group of like minded friends looking for fun as a group therapy session with everyone looking desperately for acceptance. That and the whole new age "sending positive energy" thing. New age spiritualism is incredibly creepy.

  10. I think I peed in my pants from laughing and wet my shirt from crying at the same time.

  11. polymorphus? Isn't that... y'know... multiple shapeshifting? Only poly thins I know you can be are polygamous (although that's apparently illegal) and polyamorous (often mistaken as "cheating" although how it's cheating when all parties are aware and all right with it I don't know)
    Am I missing something?

  12. Thomas - Exactly. It seems like kinky people can sometimes get so wrapped up in kink-as-identity and kink-as-challenge that they utterly lose sight of kink-as-fun. Also, frankly, some people who get into kink kinda needed therapy to begin with.

    Ferris - Hey, if I want to make up a completely new word to describe my sexuality, I expect you to instantly understand and accept it!

  13. accept it, sure, no problem! I'm an accepting kind of guy. As for understanding it... I'll uh... do my best.

    Wait- I think maybe I do... polymorphus/polymorphous... since that means changing... you're saying your sexuality changes? Fanscinating! Absolutely no sarcasm meant... does it change just by adaptation, or by choice?

  14. Ferris, you've never heard the term "polymorphous pervert"?

  15. I've googled it... that's seriously fascinating... I've never been into what's socially normative (i'm polyamorous and pansexual), so I suppose that's why I didn't pick up on that part of it.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Hershele!
