An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

Romantic relationships come in many forms; some are magical brief encounters while others are deep emotional bonds that last a lifetime. Yet often relationships are judged and valued based solely on how long the relationship lasts and not the quality, lessons and growth we take away. When a relationship is short-lived people tend to trivialize it and even sometimes demonize the relationship or person as a way to cope with the pain they feel. Why is it that we ...

Gay Marriage and the Relationship Revolution

Gay Marriage and the Relationship Revolution
by Robyn  Trask
Gay marriage is being hotly debated all around the country. In an effort to block marriage equality for gays and lesbians ultra conservatives make the argument that marriage is about procreation and serving the interests of society. The challenge is this argument does not hold up under even the slightest scrutiny and actually shines a light on what many conservatives are really being challenged by; that is the relationship revolution as an expansion of the sexual revolution.

Grief and Loss Among the Polys

Grief and Loss Among the Polys

By John Ullman

S has been gone for over eight years now. She died suddenly, a heart attack, at 61. Her death shocked our poly community, many of us being close to her age. We had lost another of us some years before, but it was an accident, a car wreck. Then we were stunned. But when S died, we were rudely made aware of our own mortality.

Breaking the mold helps each relationship find its own shape

Breaking the mold helps each relationship find its own shape

86544530Polyamory is by no means for everyone, and monogamy certainly seems to work best for most people. But one of the more unfortunate features of monogamy is the way it tends to force relationships to be either The Right One, or nonexistent. The general goal of monogamy, after all, is to find that one person you can spend the rest of your life with, forsaking all others. ...

Swinging and Polyamory: The Great Divide?

Swinging and Polyamory: The Great Divide?

By Maureen Marovitch
Reprinted from Loving More Issue #33, Winter 2005.

I’m going to say something that’s going to get me into water hotter than those at the Harbin Hot Springs.

Swingers and polyamorists have a lot in common.

I can hear the howls already. How ridiculous! Polyamory is all about relationships, sharing lives together, creating more love. Swinging is all about ‘recreational sex’, instant gratification, lust without love.

It’s so comforting to have tidy ...

Polyamory as a More Peaceful Way of Loving

Polyamory as a More Peaceful Way of Loving

By Mystic Life

Bonobos2I recall watching “The Nature of Sex” on PBS years ago, and feeling fascinated by the segment on bonobos. Since then I have learned much more about this gentle primate, and like many other polyamorous people, have come to see them as role models because they have so much to teach us about peace. Bonobos, importantly, are the only nonviolent primate.

Because we are socialized to ...

What People Think of Us

What People Think of Us

I’ve been reflecting recently on the variety of reactions we polyamorists get to our lifestyle. At choir practice the other night, one of the sopranos mentioned to me that she was taking a class on time management and that the instructor had said that after taking the class the student’s would have so much more time that their spouses and partners and polyamorous families would be delighted.

I ...
