NY C...this is so true....as is the reverse...when a woman begins to feel the sun shining on her freedom to be who she is....maybe poly, mono or "omni" (thank you redpepper for that great term!) a social conditioning response may kick in within HER subconscious...that says "but i NEED to be 'someone's', don't I?
