Have you served in the Armed Forces and had to hide your sexual preference and desires for fear that you'd be reprimanded or dishonorably discharged from serving your country if 'found out' or caught in the act?

Are you living in a relationship paradigm that is old, stagnant and NOT what you truly desire to experience in intimate and/or sexual relationships?

Remember 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'?
