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 [...]

This Week on Savage Love: Dan Rejects Polyamorous as Identity

SavageLoveLogo_1909_450867_answer_1_xlarge

I have to admit I’m disappointed in Dan Savage today after reading his response to Polyamorous Polymath (“PP”) in his latest column.   Dan does not identify as polyamorous (he and hubby being “monogamish”).  Instead of addressing PP’s concerns, Dan quickly steps all over PP’s idea that polyamory is his identity and not just a lifestyle.  Dan tells PP that polyamory is about what people do and not who they are.  In fact, he’s vehement about that, and about polyamory not being a sexual orientation, which seems to be his supporting argument against polyamory as sexual identity.  (Protect your turf much, Dan?) PP is a man who finds himself in a difficult poly/mono relationship trying to figure [...]

Staying Out of our Heads

speak-from-heart-300x252

This is this week’s “Living Compassion” tip from Nonviolent Communication author Marshall Rosenberg, something I signed up to get via email. It very much resonates for me and says:

—————————————-

For most of us, learning to communicate has meant staying as Rosenberg puts it, “up in our head” rather than in our heart. “Feelings are simply not important. We are trained to be ‘other-directed’ rather than be in contact with ourselves,” says Dr. Rosenberg

We have more words for calling people names in our everyday vocabulary then we have for clearly expressing our emotional state. It’s easier to [...]

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 [...]

Beyond-Monogamy-LogoV3

The more I get to know sex and relationships coach Kamala Devi of Showtime’s Polyamory: Married and Dating, the more impressed I am with her approach to open relationships and the expertise and philosophy she has to share.  So I recommend without reservation her free Love and Liberation Teleconference which takes place less than 24 hours from now tomorrow, October 17, 2012 at 12PM PDT.  More than 250 people have signed up.  She’s also going to give those who sign up a recording of the teleconference to share with loved ones and review again themselves.  Participating in the free [...]
