Polyamory – It’s Not Just for Baby Boomers Anymore

In his most recent entry at Polyamory in the News, Alan quotes a college student: ”Every time I turn around, I feel like more of my peers are entering open relationships.” A 30-something family member of mine said the very same to me just a few days ago.  Then Alan gives us a rundown of the latest poly news from college campuses.  He also includes the following quote and comment: “This is my poly dream: that every college student in America will know the word polyamory and what it means within five years.” So declared Diana Adams at a Loving More conference 4¼ years ago. Since [...]

Calling All Therapists! CARAS Alternative Sexualities Conference August 3, 2011

CARAS+logo1

I’m excited!  The Community-Academic Consortium for Research on Alternative Sexualities (“CARAS”) is holding it’s “4th Annual Alternative Sexualities Conference: Cultural Competencies, Clinical Issues, Research” here in DC on Wednesday, August 3, 2011, 9AM to 6PM.  My partner and I will be presenting as a case our experiences and challenges with sexual addiction/compulsion in a polyamorous relationship context, and psychiatrist Dr. Gary Wynn will provide a clinical perspective, and facilitate the conversation.  Of course, the conference is about a lot more than that.

In my polyamory advocacy and educational work, I frequently encounter people who have had a bad experience when seeking therapy from a [...]

Polyamory on the 11:00 News on DC ABC affiliate WJLA

My husband, Tim, and I had the privilege of being interviewed about our polyamorous open marriage recently, and it was shown on Washington, D.C.’s ABC news affiliate WJLA on the 11PM news on Thursday, February 9, 2012.  Also included are local polyamorists Sarah Taub, Michael Rios, and Jonica Hunter, none of whom are married to each other and who live together in what polyamorists refer to as  “V” relationship.  Their contribution was highly valuable in that together we were all able to give a couple of different yet common examples of how people arrange their nonmonogamous romantic lives. 

A fairly brief [...]

What We Do or Who We Are? Round 2 with Dan Savage

1Savage+Love

Dan Savage has included more thoughts in today’s Slog Blog about the controversy he started last week in advising someone seeking his advice that polyamory is something people do and is not who they are as an identity.  He is still having a hard time grasping what many are saying.  I have written an in-depth response because the questions he asks, which seem simple to him, are anything but simple.  In comments I wrote the following.

…. Dan, I think a key component of understanding this question is the context in which died-in-the-wool (if you will) polyamorists live out their [...]

Maria’s Pride and Arnold’s Dog House

I posted this political cartoon to Facebook today, remarking “Would that the public drew a more realistic conclusion from this than this “trend” being due merely to powerful, wealthy men being immoral. (Not that they aren’t, but there’s more to the story, say Sex at Dawn authors Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha.)

A poly friend of mine remarked, “I don’t see why they have to necessarily split over this…. Just acknowledge it and be open.”

Of course that’s what he and I would say and for good reason. But betrayal is still betrayal, especially when a long-time commitment [...]
