An open relationship or dating doesn’t really threaten our monogamy in that context.

Michael: Yeah, initially I became uncertain the way I would feel taking place another date with a guy that is straight ended up being simply enthusiastic about making love with Zara. But when we achieved it, we quickly recognized that I happened to be more comfortable with it. Along with really enjoying that style of intimate experience, We additionally discovered most of the individuals enthusiastic about that kind of thing are nevertheless fun to take those three-way times with. We also became friends with one of several men that are straight proceeded a romantic date with. For the reason that situation, we all obviously made a decision to stop dating or starting up with each other and simply allow it be considered a friendship.
