Attracted to both sexes, committed to one person

One of the delightful parts of working as an editor is to stumble onto essays like this one. I was reviewing the blog of Jennifer Pashley, a contributor to The Good Men Project, when I found her entry about being bisexual while married to a man.

The essay begs a number of important questions, including this big one: Are Westerners still a sexually possessive culture? In the age of porn and social media, talk shows on virtually any topic, do we still find it in us to possess our partners’ imaginations? Jennifer Pashley and her husband seem to have quite the mature marriage, one tested and tried not merely by the challenges of a life shared with one person, but by the assumptions and comments of a community. This essay actually presents an important lesson about openness and introspection.

Hope you’ll check it out.
