Tiger Woods Media Frenzy

LMCover#8small

When I first heard the Tiger Woods hoopla, I ignored it as just another gossip fest about someone famous.  A few days later, I was personally dismayed when I saw Tiger Woods leading the headlines in USA Today while a story about four police officers being killed in Washington State was not as important.  The officers, it was believed, were targeted while sitting in a coffee shop.  This was only a headline ...

Monogamy VS Polyamory: Why is monogamy considered the only stable or secure relationship style?

ist2_419124_painted_hearts

CNN ran an article online Wednesday, October 28, called Mate Debate: Is Monogamy Realistic? (http://www.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/10/28/monogamy.realistic.today/index.html)  The article mentions polyamory which is another example of the growing mainstream interest in the subject.  I agree though with Alan of Polyamory in the News (http://polyinthemedia.blogspot.com/) said  “I just wish the subject had been treated more as a positive expansion of love in its own right, rather than as a workaround for monogamy’s failures.” ...

The French show Effet Papillon(The Butterfly Effect) Canal Plus films did a show on polyamory partly filmed at the Loving More Retreat in September.  The show is in French but looks fairly positive.   It has been posted to You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCjghdk_pE8 .

I personally enjoyed working with the French Film crew and I appreciate their sensitivity in blurring out people who did not want to be seen.  We are hoping to ...

ABC News Nightline Sensationalized “Debate” on Infidelity

jealousy_965822It is obvious to me that ABC news had no interest in having an intelligent adult discussion on the subject of why so many people across all cultural lines, religious background and nationalities have extra marital relationships or cheat.  If they did they would not have set up a talk about fidelity, sex and marriage in an evangelical church.  The setting certainly was dramatic and sensational but it is not objective or ...

The Newsweek article

The Newsweek article has stirred up a frenzy of comments and posting on their website because of the July 29 article, Only You. And You. And You.

 

It is always interesting to me to read the comments after an article in mainstream media on polyamory.  There is always a prolific and strong reaction of moralizing and pointing fingers at what terrible perverse people polyamorists are.  Many people seem to live with their heads in some other reality of monogamy being the ...

The Crumbling Foundations of Traditional Marriage and the Nuclear Family

I was standing in line at the grocery store when an issue of Time Magazine caught my eye.  The cover was a badly made wedding cake with a plastic bride and groom plowed into the top, the cover article, Unfaithfully Yours, by Caitlin Flanagan.  I had to buy it and read this article.  In the contents under the cover story listing the byline was “The two-parent family is in trouble.  Why we still need the nuclear unit-and how to save ...
