1. I am not desperate for attention to actually start an embarrassing Datalounge thread with the title, "Just to be clear, my bf and I MAKE LOVE; we FUCK our tricks."
2. We have been together for nearly ten years and respect and appreciate each other. We don't need to tell people whether we "make love" or "fuck" -- and we don't need to tell anyone whether we share ourselves with other people.
3. We have built a life together. When our state finally recognizes marriage equality, we will make the transition from "partners" to SPOUSES.
