Serendipitously, this changed about six months ago when I connected with a beautiful, fun woman and ended up having sex with her. Although I have always approached my sexuality with curiosity and an open mind, I had never experienced this type of connection.
Woman B: I am a cis woman who used to identify as "disappointingly straight" — I felt like I was missing out on interesting experiences.
Woman A: I started dating someone who was in the [sex party] scene five years ago.
Woman C: I first got into all of these alternative scenes about six years ago.People seemed to have really good relationships already established; there were only a few people that evening at that particular event.You could tell we were the more sheepish [people], very much on the sidelines, looking in a little bit.Through doing so, I basically ended up starting to find communities of people who had parties, or "munches," where they got together to hang out and talk.These people very quickly started to help me to empower myself; thought I was beautiful the way I was.Before that I’d been in a relationship that was supposed to be a dominant/submissive relationship that in truth was a pretty abusive dynamic... Toward the end of that, I started to reach out to online kink-related communities.
