What he discovers about his very unconventional family, and about the history and psychology of love and marriage leads him to question the ideal of monogamy, and the traditional family values

  • Monogamous And Nonmonogamous Men’s Brains Respond Differently To Romantic Images

    Are some people “wired” for nonmonogamy? Do nonmonogamous people’s brains work differently from monogamous people’s? A new study has studied brain responses to men viewing sexual, romantic, and neutral images and found that there are some differences in how monogamous vs nonmonogamous men respond to viewing romantic images!

  • Fighting for Sexual Freedom 2017

    What a week Kenneth Play and I had participating at Naughty in Nawlins with over 2,000 attendees! Looking back on one of our favorite events of the week, the Sexual Freedom March, we were reminded of the progress made for LGBTQIA rights. 10 years ago, we couldn’t imagine one of the most powerful corporations in the world, like Apple, having an openly gay CEO. While it’s not a perfect analogy, we’re excited to see polyamorous and kinky communities striving for some of the same rights that LGBTQIA communities worked so hard to achieve. Diana Adams Law is an organization we admire that is doing tremendous work

  • Is Consensual Non-Monogamy Right for You?

    Consensual Non-Monogamy (CNM) has gained in popularity quite a bit recently.
