commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: My Fuckbuddy, My Cousin
My sister got together with our cousin after her husband died, and they've been an item for five years now. He's a little shy about the whole (quite big) extended family knowing about it, but his brothers all know, and everybody in our family knows. They're too old to have kids, so, so what?
Second cousins? You're barely related, fuck away.

If you're giving him a blow job, there is a lot of spit around. Use some of that.

See, I've always thought of poly as something like what they do in "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" - committed relationships with more than one partner. What LW is describing (without the kink part, I'm not very kinky) is what I used to call, when I was young, "single".

I can't quite understand why this has to "mean" something. An invitation is not a summons, it's OK to decline it. If he's not rude to your family when he sees them, and doesn't badmouth them to you, there is not a problem here. Go eat dinner with your family and see your boyfriend another day.

@3 In other words, it's possible that under certain stressful conditions, he may behave less than well.
Big deal. Me too, and, I suspect, you. We may not do this particular thing, but we do something that we should not.

@26 - Barbie can do whatever the kid who is playing with her wants her to do - there is no limit except that of the child's imagination.
As a childhood educator, I'm not crazy about the unrealistic body image that Barbie promotes.
In every other way, though, Barbie is a very good doll for kids to play with. She is an adult, which is important - nurturing play with baby dolls is a good thing, but it's not the only thing. She's not limited by belonging to one specific role - a Star Wars doll is fine, but is best for just playing Star Wars. If you want your space roving doll to also be a veterinarian and a magician, hey, Barbie fits the bill.
Of course, all of this is true for any generic adult doll. But the good thing about Barbie is that there is by now such a huge world of accessories and clothes that it's possible to give that imagination a springboard. Not hard to find a lab coat to fit your Barbie, and a clipboard, and boots, and and and.....
If the only thing you can think of to do with Barbie is change her clothes, you're missing 90% of the experience.
