learning a new term

a new term, especially pertaining to polyamory (thanks chris)


excerpt from it here, but i recommend you read the whole thing if you are interested:

"Compersion begins the first time we are turned on by someone else's pleasure, or the idea of someone else's love for anyone besides us. You may think this is totally out-to-lunch. But for some people it's totally natural. There are those who are not the "jealous type," and then there are those who just love love, no matter who's it is. We all know it's possible. We may have an idea of how good it would feel to dissolve into the safety, freedom and unconditional acceptance of our lovers and all that they are, including the other people that they may love, and how great it would feel to let them experience all that we are, including the other people we may love.

.........This way of being is called compersion."

it's nice to have a term for things i often feel. as a human i often find myself a bit confused without the proper labelling system

and this is nice too:

"When people drop their guard and just feel, so much pleasure is possible -- more than we ever imagined"

mmm.. niceness!

Heh... admittedly I thought that I was reading a malapropism or the start of a rant about misspellings online. Little did I know I would be learning the proper term for the source of my own arousal for as long as I can remember! Thank you!

...and a second on the guard dropping quote(because I think that's the toughest task for so many to do in life). I find it quite hard at times as well.

I would also be remiss if I did not comment on the lovely picture that accompanies this post.... and that comment is yummy!
