I read the book. It was an interesting read. I tend to believe that the human experience is so vast and can vary so much from person to person that by saying anything at all is or isn't "natural" takes away from someone's real lived experience. I think that human beings have a tendency to form connections and attractions to more than one person over the course of their lives. Some people will stay partnered forever with the first person they connected to, others will experience serial monogamy and yet others will be involved with more than one person at a time.

I like that this book starts a discussion about things not having to be the way they are in society today. The more the discussion happens the less there will be a need to hide who you are from the world. I worry about the pendulum swinging too much the other way though and people believing that no one can truly be monogamous and vilifying those who truly feel that they are.

I was listening to an old interview with Tristan Taormino on PolyWeekly back when her book Opening Up came out and she said something that I really liked. Whatever form you choose to your relationships, it would just be nice if more people would do that as an actual, thoughtful CHOICE.

None are better than the other, but each may be better suited to different people at different times in their life with different people. But to actually think about yourself, who you're with, the people in your life and make a CHOICE to live in a certain way instead of going with the "default"... that would be lovely to see.

This "she" is a spam bot, methinks. The only other post she made pulled generic terms from the thread she commented on and didn't really say much: http://www.polyamory.com/forum/showp...8&postcount=10

Somebody failed the Turing test.
