Quote of the day:

In love there can be no fear, but fear is driven out by perfect love;
because to fear is to expect punishment, and anyone who is afraid is still imperfect in love.

Source is maybe not what you'd expect... guesses below.

While terms such as polyamory and polyfidelity have proven useful in certain situations, it seems to me there's room for a few more handy descriptions:

--- polyphony: feigning interest in being poly at the instigation of a current partner

---polycelibacy: lack of sexual interest in multiple partners; also the state of having multiple partners complaining of one's sexual neglect of them

- polyuanakrakor: (Brit) attempting to add a new partner to the mix over the objections of current partners (US) compulsive overeating in response to stress of poly lifestyle

---polyfilla: (Brit) getting fed up of the complexities of poly life

---polygon: temporary or permanent retirement from poly

Research results suggest that psychedelics "may promote alcohol and other drug abstinence and prosocial behavior in a population with high rates of recidivism.”

Preaching to the choir, but I never know who's reading this stuff...

Me: No thanks, I'd rather chew off my own foot.
Them: That's a bit of an exaggeration, surely?
Me: Yeak, OK, I'd rather chew off your foot.
