Online screening is safer than streetwalking
The more “underground” something is the more likely the participants are to be abused
How this impacts the the Furry Fandom

Sexual Roles as Perspective Lenses
The role you portray influences who you attract into your life
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” - Kurt Vonnegut
Advantages to trying new roles
“Try it, you might like it!”
Empathize better with your partner
Gain competence by understanding what it is you do to your partners
Experience your preferred role compersionately, rather than directly
Compersion isn’t just for polyfolk!
Subject: Help, polyamory is making me lose my best friend
At the start of the year I joined a small furry gaming group. Only about 10 people. As the year went on the group dropped to only about 6 and polyamory was introduced. Me and my husband joined this relationship, and it's going great. My problem though is, one of the members of the group who was one of my best friends at one point, doesn't want me in the poly relationship. His mate is in the poly relationship but he isn't and doesn't want me being romantic with his mate. Which has driven a divide in our gaming group, which was the point of the group to begin with. I want everyone to be happy but he isn't content unless I'm out of the picture? How do I go about this without feeling like i’m stepping on toes or without giving up a relationship I really want? I really want my friend back
