Maybe you and your partner decided to invite another person into the relationship. How did the experience change your relationship for better or for worse?

Maybe you are a member of an exclusive kink community, and the experience has taught you a new understanding of your body, your sexuality, and how you experience others.

Or maybe you have multiple partners, and you've been in a polyamorous relationship for years and want to dispel the stigma surrounding this lifestyle.
