Man's feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell.-Johann Paul Friedrich Richter
PC and I have arrived at a momentous conclusion: We wish temporarily to close off our relationship -- not only from other lovers, but, sadly, also from you, dear readers. Understand that this was a very difficult decision to make, and that I have wrestled with it since the New Year.
The truth is this: We never anticipated that our exploration of BDSM and kink would turn out to be so volatile, intense, and ... intimate. For those of you who have traveled this road and are further along on your journey, you know what I mean. For those of you who, like us, have taken your first steps together down this path, I hope that your discoveries are as fulfilling as ours have been.
If you recall, this blog began in celebration of the new-found sexual freedom I gained through the non-monogamous union I share with PC. As our relationship evolved, two factors motivated our transition from swinging to kink: The underlying psycho-sexual dynamic in our marriage and my yearning for greater intimacy with PC.
At present, I feel compelled to live out our intimacy in its full intensity, without reflecting on it intellectually: Without digesting it, extracting its essence, and restructuring it in words.
In short, I take a leave of absence from you until this coming fall. I may, if the urge strikes me, post random entries in the coming weeks; however, weekly posts will only resume when the cold sets in again. Keep in mind also that I will be managing the blog on a weekly basis, so you are always welcome to comment on posts that inspire you.
Have a great spring + summer!
