Polyamory in the News: roundup time again
Activists throw the biggest poly convention anywhere yet. A major newspaper analyzes the poly movement at length for a million readers. And read all about the first polyamory-themed series on mainstream TV, with the community’s strong and divergent reactions to it.

Polyamory in the News: The last couple months
On ABC’s 20/20, eight adults and three kids face down an incredulous anchor and show millions what a happy poly network of families can look like. Gay triads stir heated reactions. Poly-friendly psychology professionals stage a breakthrough. Atlanta Poly Weekend. Poly Party Weekend. And do radicals take to poly especially well?

Poly in the News: Latest Roundup!
The day before a key Republican primary, polys become a political football in a good way. More polyfolks discover they can appear on TV and not die. Joys of poly parenting are described to the world. The feminist roots of modern poly get an airing. And the Polyamory Leadership Network gets its first mention in the New York Times.

Polyamory in the News: latest roundup
I’m really looking forward to the Poly Living conference coming up February 10-12 in Philadelphia. But meanwhile… time for another news roundup.

Newt Gingrich brings a burst of opportunities for people to tell the world about their non-Gingrichy open relationships, the kind built on caring and support all around. Mainstream TV presents several long-term triad families explaining their way of life, plus a fictional one doing the same. Next Gen poly, on and off campus. Dan Savage invites readers to “Meet the Monogamish.”

Polyamory in the News: What the world is saying about us.
Hi folks. Time has passed... Here's another news roundup....

Canada legalizes most polyamory in a major court case. Dear Abby gives a platform for a renowned poly advice nurse to reach millions. Open marriage redux. Threesomes naturally. An emergent phenomenon at Occupy Wall Street. And, would your polyfamily like to be media stars? If so, learn how to stay in charge.

Polyamory in the News: How the world is seeing us
Hi folks! Another season, another news roundup....

Dear Abby treats us like normals, almost. Promoting a poly event in the mainstream media with brains and cute overload. Obliterating a clueless mental-health professional. TV done right. Next-generation voices, teenage and up. And, “with their heads on their shoulders, they create their own identity using tools 2.0.” (That’s supposed to be us.)

Listings of UPCOMING POLY EVENTS and LOCAL POLY GROUPS
Folks,

I've created a new website, ALAN'S LIST of POLYAMORY EVENTS:
http://polyevents.blogspot.com

These are all the major poly cons, festivals, gatherings, etc. coming up in the next 12 months, as far as I know. I think the list is pretty complete, at least for the English-speaking world. There are now 13 events on the list through July 2012 -- with descriptions and sometimes my commentary when I've been to one of these or know people who have.

ALSO: At the bottom of the page are five resource lists of LOCAL POLY GROUPS worldwide, sorted by location -- making it easy to find the local group(s) in your backyard, with their own meetings and happenings.

Instructions for how to suggest new listings are on the page.

I intend to keep the site updated and current forever. (I hope I've got another 30 good years ahead, and before I go I'll try to hand off the job to someone else.)

Please link to this and pass it on.

This project is an outgrowth of my other site, POLYAMORY IN THE NEWS:
http://polyinthemedia.blogspot.com

... which I've been running for six years now.

Enjoy!

Polyamory in the News: How the world is seeing us.
In Washington, a U.S. Senate committee hears about the polyamory threat to America. “The New Monogamy,” i.e. non-monogamy, takes off in the mainstream media. Polyamorous polygamists file a legal challenge in federal court and could actually win. Triads and quads “redefining love’s boundaries” are featured on TV evening news.

Poly in the recent news
A parenting magazine presents polyamory as a logical alternative. TV news goes all awkward covering a Loving More convention. Dan Savage as America’s most important sex ethicist. New poly books. More on campus. And, how to frame the emergence of polyamory as the natural outcome of the last several centuries of human development.

Polyamory in the News roundup
Polyamory advocates break new ground before one of Canada’s highest courts, with media coverage to match. A happy poly household is featured on TV, with toddler. We read that “Three is the new two,” “Poly is the new gay,” and “Is polyamory the new black?” Deborah Anapol weighs upsides and downsides. And a study uncovers a pathetic truth: most young lovers don’t even hear each other’s agreements regarding monogamy.

Polyamory in the News roundup!
Polyamory’s most important court case since 1999 opens next week, and this time our side is prepared. Meanwhile, TV documentaries on polyfamilies in Quebec and Denmark show how TV can do it right if the producers are so inclined. In the U.S., “Sister Wives” sets the new public image for group families, and that’s not so bad. Writers from Dan Savage to a friendly Episcopal priest weigh in on poly life. And the poly-mono anthropology debate rolls on.

Is getting "hot" over anothers sexual experience a part of compersion?
I deal with jealousy issues by thinking of how the partner in question treats me, and how I would like to be treated. A lot of time, though, I still end up saying it out loud to them to get over the last of it. I don't need any special assurance, I just need to be heard. I don't like to burden my partners with my jealousy, but I know it is for the best for all of us, and I think they feel the same.

My question is regarding coming together after a sexual encounter with a third party. I hear people say they get sexually aroused hearing their partner talking excitedly about their foray and it leads to a wonderful sex session. Right now, I don't want to hear about it. I guess, I feel like their enjoying of having sex with someone else makes me question my performance and sexual attractiveness. Partially, I fear that if I'm hearing about someone else then others are hearing about me, which takes away the specialness, part of the intimacy.

Is this type of bonding required in your definition of compersion? Has anyone tried to overcome similar barriers?

Thanks

Polyamory in the News
A hot new book matches poly to our evolved human nature. A legal scholar examines what will happen if poly is viewed as a sexual orientation. Get ready for “the new monogamy,” the coming term for non-monogamy. Stranger in a Strange Land redux. Great radio and TV. Conservatives flip out.

Poly Demographic Survey
FWD:

This is a short, 10-question demographic survey on the polyamorous community. This is not an all-inclusive survey, it is an attempt to begin data collection for future research and only some criteria is addressed. Further studies and questionnaires will be required for a complete and comprehensive look at the polyamorous community, and the responses to this survey may help to direct those further studies.

The responses are completely anonymous and your participation will help the polyamorous community in future academic and legal endeavors. Please answer all questions. Please send this survey to other polyamorous and non-monogamous people.

Thank you for your participation.

Hi Joreth, The Kinsey Institute has a major collection of historical and research archives of the Polyamory "movement" contained in my collection at: http://www.kinseyinstitute.org/library/haslam.html

We recognize that there is very little research on the polyamorous community and encourage the collection of data, especially data gathered in surveys about polyamory demography since so little exists. It is tragic that most of the data is now getting old.

We ask that anyone seeking data on the Poly community submit the results of their studies to the Kinsey Polyamory collection.

Your pilot study of Polyamory demography will be welcomed into the collection. We recognize that your study is a pilot study and will not give definitive answers but it wil give some indication of what to include in future research.

I am sure you know one of the best studies on Poly demography was done by Jasmine Walston some ten years ago. To my knowledge no one has dove equivalent work since. I believe Jasmine"s study is available the Poly Researchers file list. And please note that Curt Bergstrand of Bellarmine University, Louisville is now reanalysing the Nearing data collected in 1999 (?) and contained in the Kinsey Collection and might be used for comparison to your data.

Polyamory in the News: a race to define ourselves
Politicians spend millions to define who they are to the public before their opponents can do it for them. The modern polyamory movement has been defining itself successfully with nothing but volunteers, enthusiasm, and a shoestring. When does the backlash start? I keep waiting for it, and year after year it keeps not happening.

Calling all Poly Spokespeople, Activists, Community Leaders, Out & Proud Polys!
Ever more news reports, articles, and television shows are highlighting poly families, and a surprisingly large number of them are showing us very favorably!

Ever wondered how those people got chosen when, perhaps, your family would have been perfect?

Ever been interviewed yourself and watched or read it later and thought, "Hey, that's not what I said/meant!"?

Ever seen Terisa Greenan or Jenny Block on television and wished you could sound and look that polished, that you could get your message across that clearly?

Introducing the Polyamory Media Association! We're a volunteer project of the Polyamory Leadership Network, collaborating with Loving More. Our goal is to bridge the gulf between the media and the polyamorous community. We offer media training to help you polish your own message and develop those skills necessary for navigating the waters of the media and entertainment industry. 

We will not tell you what to say. You create your own message; we'll teach you how to say it. Our training is good for radio, television, and print interviews, for public speaking, for letter-writing, and for other proactive polyactivism.

Plus, we offer our free services as media screeners. We can help you vet reporters and shows so you can avoid problematic ones, negotiate with the rest on a more even basis, and make sure you're treated fairly. But the final decision is left up to you -- we will not filter or make decisions for you.

The Polyamory Media Association will also seek out the media to help them find you if you wish. By bringing together the polyamorous community and the media, we hope to foster a mutually beneficial relationship between the two parties -- when they share common goals. 

So sign up today at www.PolyMediaAssociation.com and take advantage of the training materials and experience collected by those trailblazing polyamorists before you! Shortly after you sign up (completely free, and all information will remain confidential), you'll be given access to the Members portion of the website with all the benefits we have to offer.

We look forward to seeing you at the Polyamory Media Association!

Polyamory in the News
“What happens when polyamory becomes mainstream?” It’s not there yet, but the last three months of poly in the media suggest it’s coming faster than we've expected.

A major newspaper makes waves profiling “Love’s new frontier.” John Stewart’s “The Daily Show” highlights a poly group of three. Many advice columnists increasingly get it. Seven new polyamory books are in the authoring/publishing pipeline. If you haven't kept up with Polyamory in the News in the last three months (or subscribed to it by the LJ friends feed or other syndication service), here's some of what you missed:
