Default New York Times - New Poly Article (August 4, 2019)

Polyamory Works for Them
Having multiple partners can mean more pleasure, but it’s not always easy.

Significant 2300 word article on CNM and Poly in the New York Times last week - with reaction seeming to be more positive than the last Times article on poly. There are a number of pics, representing a diversity of race.

Dramatis Personae:
Me: Al99, poly, heterosexual male, 50's
Becky: married to Al99, poly, heterosexual female, late 30's
Bouncingbetty: ldr girlfriend to Al99, poly, pansexual female, mid 30's
Jill: local fwb to Al99, heterosexual female, early 50's.
Sam: Becky's boyfriend, heterosexual male, 50's.
Ben: Becky's long time friend and former partner, heterosexual male, 40's

Interesting article ... seems to report generally on what kinds of CNM events are available in NYC ... also introduces us to a number of poly couples and polycules. The article lends a familiarity to poly, and erases some of the stigma.

I felt it leaned toward salacious, especially the pictures. It jumped randomly between different styles of CNM, though it did identify what style each person practices. I guess it had a generally positive tone though.
