I would say that it is the Poly Percs membership who should tell you what to include or not in their glossary. We have our own.

I'm curious, though... I noticed there was an entry in your glossary for "24/7" and the definition was related to BDSM.

Come on now, really? Someone needs a glossary to know that 24/7 means 24 hours/7 days a week?

Besides, it isn't only a BDSM term. Just because it's used to refer to certain activities does not make the meaning only related to those activities.

What was the thinking behind including such a common, every day term? If someone says, "Oh, they have a 24/7 master-slave relationship," I highly doubt anyone will drop their jaw and ask what "24/7" means.
The world opens up... when you do.
