We are Jean and Cuts. He is Jean. She is Cuts. Those are not our real names. Cuts has likely never been a real name, but if there is someone out there whose parents thought Cuts could cut it as an appropriate handle for some sobbing mass of radical potential, we’d like to meet him or her. And the parents, too, come to think of it. They are probably amazing people who would maybe like to join our hypothetical commune at some point.
We have not yet settled on a precise definition of what this blog will be. We likely never will. We are wont to resist definition. But at its most basic level, it will be a place to explore the nature of non-monogamy and love animalism as enacted by two people attempting to get to know the world and each other in ways that respect all that is wild and bright and fiery and fanged about the universe.
Non-monogamy is easy to define. We date other people. But what is love animalism? We don’t know yet. That is what we are trying to find out here. What we do know is that being a love animal entails a reverence for freedom, openness, transparency, respect and existential adventure, and we have decided to see how we, Jean and Cuts, two humans who love each other and ourselves and the world we’re caught in, can make this work.
