Open Relationship, anyone?

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

The other day a friend name Nic asked me if I have ever had fun with another person while I am still in a relationship. And his definition of fun is any physical contacts and visual (including electronically such as web cam or photo ) ones involving the private parts. My reply to him was I have not done such a thing while my relationship is still "attached". It was a surprise to him that I was being "super loyal". I did not get to ask why it was a surprising response. I do not think he is the person who condone open relationship or cheats behind someone's back.

I also had a vague memory of someone nickname Ichimaru (vague cos my memory tells me it's him but cannot be certain of it) once told me that open relationship is common in PLU community. I was bewildered by such thoughts. 

Yesterday I posted a topless photo in my IG story and caught attention of few people who are in my "close friend" list that has access to it. One outstanding conversation I had was this guy name Zach whom I have known for many years even since the mIRC days. He was showing interest to have fun with me, which caught me by surprise because he is already attached with someone for more than a decade. It turns out that he has been in a open relationship for a few years already. 

He asked me the same question Nic asked me earlier, do I ever had fun with another guy while I am in relationship. He was in a bit of disbelief when I said I have not. I even told him that monogamous long term relationship do exist in PLU community. I even pointed out a certain high profile blogger name William for having an exemplary long term monogamous relationship.

Is open relationship a common thing in the PLU community?

A quick check with my PLU "brothers" and my PLU "gang" that they are a strong supporter of monogamous relationship. There was also one additional comment that if both person in the relationship agree to such arrangement to make it as "open relationship", guess it would not be "morally wrong", so to say.

What is your take on monogamous relationship or open relationship? Straight or or otherwise.
