Human Origins and Polyamory: When Did it All Begin?

Anthropologists love to speculate about the origins of human sexual proclivities and behaviors.  We generate detailed theories about attraction, passion and jealousy, all couched under the rubric of reproductive strategies.  In this workshop we’ll explore current theories about the origins of partnering patterns. Some infer early polygamy and abundant multi-relating by both sexes; others contend that at the core we’re ...

What’s Sex Got To Do With It?

Polyamory sends visions of orgies and free love to most people who first hear the term and definition. Even after careful explanation to the uninitiated, they still walk away thinking polyamory equals f***ing anything that moves. This belief that polyamory is about sex is what send people into a frenzy about morality, commitment and family values. The Montel show did a wonderful show on polyamory but when one of the poly ...

The Nobility of Lies and Perception of the Unicorn

The weekly drama series House recently aired an episode in which the patient was in an honest open relationship.   True to Hollywood style all was not as it seemed.  The show was in many ways a train wreck of what can go wrong when people are not fully honest.  The episode featured three stories, the open relationship, the cheating doctor and House’s best friend’s dishonesty about his feelings with his girlfriend and former wife.

The open relationship is greeted in the ...

The Marginalizing of Polyamory by Mainstream Media and Academia

On Wednesday April 7, 2010 at the Conference on World Affairs a panel presentation was being presented From Monogamy to Polyamory and Everything in Between.  Wow this is great that polyamory is being included in the Conference on World Affairs held annually at the University of Colorado in Boulder.  Just one problem, on the panel of “experts” there was not one person who really knew or understood polyamory.  The local polyamory group in Boulder caught wind of this via Amy ...
