“It’s a fucking process,” they shared about trying to conceive a child. “I just wished we learned more about how to get pregnant and not about how not to get pregnant. It’s terrible.”

“I’m in this place now with sex where I think it’s fucking stupid,” they said. “I love sex, don’t get me wrong; it’s such a beautiful thing, it’s an extension of love. But from a physical standpoint, this idea of just, like, a quick fix — it’s like getting high. It’s like getting off. I’m just living in a different, higher chakra, so to speak, right now.”

“I’m only having sex to get pregnant right now,” they shared. “And I haven’t had sex with a dude in two years.”

Nico and their longtime partner have been together for more than a decade, and spent the majority of it in a happily polyamorous relationship.

“I haven’t had sex with anyone except for my partner since February of 2020,” they shared. “Which is strange. We have never been this monogamous and straight in the 15 years that we’ve known each other. It’s been a fucking process.”

“It’s okay to put my, you know, ‘alternative’ sex life on hold for a minute,” they shared. “It’s not going away entirely. It bends and shifts.”
