Acceptance

I suppose, we all want to be accepted for who we are? An essential first step, I feel, is acceptance of one's self. I think too many people worry about what others think. This is not to say the sensitivities of others are to be ignored. As the saying goes, as long as you don't scare the horses, or the straights...

I saw a lovely comedy called 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme', about a gay guy and his straight girl flatmate. He was describing another gay guy he knows, and he used the phrase, "He's so far in the closet, he's in f**kin' Narnia." Such an image!

Do kinky people also have these closets?

Of course we do. I think you've read some of my posts in which I discuss how difficult it is to come out to a partner after never having discussed it. You never know how they will react, but generally you have an idea if they're not going to react well.

Tom,

Yes, you're right; I have seen your posts. I'm a simple fellow, and feel that there should be no inner secrets from one's partner. The news may not be good, but truth should never be hidden. One would be living a lie, and that way lies madness.

I'm not only thinking of confessing my kinks to a partner. Communication is a two-way street. How would I react, if a partner told me she liked something that I consider a turn-off? I've yet to live out this one, but I hope I'd keep still long enough to listen, and encourage the whole truth out in the open.
