I would love to be a man and to have a harem. I would love them all. People say that the concept of polyamory is bullshit. It isn’t to me. You can be in love with several people. On different levels. You can feel lust for someone. You can also feel both. I do feel both. And I’m not a man. Not on the outside.

On the inside, I’m Casanova.
