September 23 is Sexual Freedom Day!

Woodhull+logo

Tomorrow is Sexual Freedom Day, established as such by the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, September 23 being its namesake Victoria Woodhull’s birthday. I thought I’d take a minute and let you know that I will be attending and participating in tomorrow’s activities as a recognized member of the polyamory leadership community. I did this last year as well. Woodhull is based here in DC and does excellent work on behalf of all of us. In case you aren’t familiar with them, their mission is, in part: “… to affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right, working towards a [...]

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 [...]

Polyamory Leadership Network

Over the last three years, the Polyamory Leadership Network has evolved into a very active entity, however loosely organized.  It includes people from around the world who make some kind of contribution toward raising awareness of polyamory and supporting those who live poly lives.  Basically its members make whatever contribution they wish to make without red tape approval processes.  There is no board of directors, because we poly people are an independent, ornery bunch, don’tchaknow, none of us being especially inclined to answer to authority. 

But seriously, check out the PLN website, and if you are someone who [...]

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 [...]
