One of the primary ways Dr. Fritz Klein's Sexual Orientation Grid expands the study of human sexuality, is the idea that bisexuality is not just about sexual desires or capabilities. It also examines our emotional and social preferences. . . "Who do you feel more drawn to or close to emotionally?" and "Which gender do you socialize with?"
So the possibility for there being a social and emotional variation between our sexual and emotional partners becomes a point of investigation.
This week we break into the realm of the gendered. And as you'd expect, there are more than a few ways to view the prism. We'll start off with three ideas for our consideration:
• Sex & love are like the juggling arts. When dealing with bowling pins you need one technique to get the pins flipping. When juggling variously sized balls, you use another. With one gender perhaps we'd flip one way, with some other gender another
• Some of us are Situational Sluts: The right place, the right time, the right partner . . . We are open to any gender both sexually and emotionally, though under conditions.
• Mirror Mirror: Wherein I am the chameleon, changing colors, position, 'styles' based on my partners'. For example: If my partner is more 'masculine', I may get more submissive; if my partner more 'femme-y', I fill a more leadership role, etc., etc.
