Oooo, good point! All three of us are gamers (though I'm not much of a video gamer- FPS make me dizzy!) and we have an ex-JW, ex-Catholic, and ex-Baptist among us, so we're all practiced at throwing off some of the conditioning we got as kids.
We're all big sci-fi geeks too. I was a Heinlein fan LONG before I ever learned the word "polyamorous".
