Tomorrow on Bilerico: "Sex on Gilligan's Island"

You'll have to go to Bilerico tomorrow for my response to the following:

Dear Father Tony,

I'm writing because yesterday a friend of ours said "They have an open relationship" when he introduced us to someone. I didn't like it. It felt weird.

My "husband" and I have been together for twelve years. Yes, we have sex with other men. But we don't "cheat" on each other. We talk about it. It's not like a "free-for-all" thing. We know what NOT to do that would make each other mad. We don't hide it, but really it's nobody's damn business, and I did not like getting introduced that way. But it got me thinking. This weekend, my husband is going to LA. He (we) have been emailing someone we both know who lives there. I'm sure they will have sex, but this is different. It's like dating. He's staying with the guy. It's like a possible romance with me out of the picture. Where do I draw the line? Are we trashing each other this way? Years from now will I be alone and kicking myself for being stupid?

If you have sex with someone more than once then you are starting a new relationship. The line has been crossed.

What? Who gets to draw the official line? Black and white never worked out for me too well.

As long as open lines of communication exist, I don't see any difficulties, said the perpetually single hobbit.

that's an odd introduction in any setting, is the introducer a pimp?
