ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This is spillover from the February 2, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user Paantha. It also fills the "first kiss" square in my 1-23-16 card for the Valentine's Day Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Antimatter & Stalwart Stan thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some intense topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It includes consensual romantic activity that abruptly goes awry due to nobody's fault, nonverbal revocation of consent and prompt halting of activity, a minor panic attack, sexual confusion, some very awkward conversation trying to figure out what's going on, and other challenges. They do make up quickly, but don't go back to kissing in this scene. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

There are messy medical details, radical trust, deep intimacy, emotional surrender, some internal and interpersonal angst, demisexual challenges, vampire feeding, and other interesting stuff. Please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

This year the Valentine's Day Bingo fest over in [community profile] allbingo is using 3x3 cards in several different categories. I have decided to play the Romantic and Platonic ones. The fest runs from February 1-29. People can make cards and start writing early, but posting doesn't begin until February 1. (See all my 2016 bingo cards.)

If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out. I've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far. This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. I may still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl.

Underlined prompts have been filled.

 The online dating site OKCupid has added features to support polyamorous relationships.  It recently expanded its options for gender identity and sexual orientations too.

Several women talk about sex and disabilities

As a writer, I often portray characters with disabilities, and that includes the sex/romance part of life.  It goes very much like that interview: the specific type of disability has a major effect on whether and how someone can have sex, but most folks can find a way.

 ... in modern times.  Two scholars have tuned their lives to explore a historic period of mutual interest, by doing things the old-fashioned way.  It's a sweet love story as well as a clever study.

Here is a hawt video of a Hispanic pr0n star demonstrating how to use condoms safely and effectively.  (Hey, you want to learn a topic, ask an expert!)  Gorgeous, full-view imagery of a guy having a good time with his body and his personal safety supplies.  :D  Now if we all had access to stuff like this, it would absolutely hold the attention of the sexual folks, entertaining as well as educating.  (Ace students may prefer a different demo using a banana just in case they ever need to explain to a friend.)  Obviously that video is NSFW for most folks.

This is one reason why Terramagne-America has a healthier view of sexuality, with consequently lower rates of teen pregnancy and other problems related to not knowing how to handle a crotch safely.  The good high schools have sex ed that looks kind of like this, and the banana option for people who don't want explicit demonstrations.  Once you are old enough for legal consent, you better know what you're doing; age-appropriate materials are available for younger classes.  Similar content is very widely available online -- especially in the darknet.  One of its more thriving uses is spreading accurate sexual information, along with the regular supply of pr0n, to places that don't want people to have that data.  So hey, you can educate your kids, or Kraken can do it for you.

Yes,  I have supervillains who are better at sex ed than most high schools.  LOL

Bard Bloom has written a duology, Mating Flight, about dragons -- the protagonist of which is not actually interested in mating, but obligated to do so for reasons of species survival.  It sounds fascinating.
