Gaia's Personal Sexual-Revolution & Awakening
I would like to share with you a little about me and my own personal journey in living my life outside of society norms. I discovered that I was Bisexual at the age of 15 and spent a couple of years trying to figure out if I was lesbian and what it meant if I was. When I was in college I became the poster girl for Bisexuality, fighting for the rights of bisexuality as a true sexual orientation with issues and concerns. I have had many wonderful and educational relationships and lovers of both genders over the years that have taught me that love, attraction and personal growth can come in any gender. That brings us to my adventures into the world of non-monogamy.
For the first 10 years of dating I was a cheater. I never understood why I could not just be happy with the person I was dating. I tried so hard to not cheat but I was never successful. The guilt, shame, lies and the horrible pain I caused was awful and I hated myself. Then one day when I was 20, I was dating this man who for the first time loved and trusted me so much that I decided I would not break his trust. I was honest with him, I had fallen in love with one of my girlfriends. He supported me in telling her, and that began my first open polyamorous relationship. I was in a relationship with both of them for 2 years. During this time, I learned that there are no rules to what I was doing in my life or support. So, we made rules as we went.
Some worked and some were heart breaking. In the end, both of them ended their relationship with me, creating double the heart-break. Any normal sane person would have said well that didn’t work I wouldn’t be trying that again!!!! Oh no, not me. I felt free and knew there had to be a way to make non- monogamy work for me. Then I fell in love again and we were exploring the world of swinging and polyamory. What a fun, crazy and painful ride. We were together for 12 years. I now know that you can live outside of the norm and every relationship you are in is yours to create the rules, the framework and to support each others desires’, needs and healing of our own insecurities.
I was married to the most amazing sexual free man that push my comfort levels and who has become my guide, teacher and partner:
Helping, supporting and encouraging me to become completely sexually free in all areas of sexuality. He has created a safe, loving space that has allowed me to look and face and heal my own sexual abuse trauma. Removing the blockages of fear and shame through BDSM and kinky exploration. THANK YOU!!”
My newest adventure… I am single with a wonderful harem of lovers that are supportive of me embracing and unleashing my primal sexual self. I have been able to finally totally love and accept all of my sexual aspects with the help of some incredible sexual adventure buddies…
Remember Sex is good!!!! Sex is fun!!!!! Pleasure is our friend!!
