Default Alan M's Latest Blog - May 31, 2018

I found Alan M's latest blog (May 31, 2018) on his Polyamory in the News blogsite to be a nice Saturday morning read. Here's a link for any who may be interested.

Do polyamorous people understand love and sex better than you do?

(The "you" in the title is obviously directed to the non-poly folks).

Good page, it has a lot of advice that could apply to any relationship. Thanks for sharing it.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"

Well... there's no "it," really; rather major portions of four articles. (Still don't consider infotainment to be "news." )

Cutting to the chase:The first I discount because it's mostly Sheff exercising her street cred by repetition, rather than expanding her repertoire -- heck, she manages to TWICE name-drop her "20-year study" (plus four more references to "study participants"), & any sociology undergrad knows two interview sessions (of a couple dozen self-selected subjects) spread over a couple of decades DOES NOT make "a longitudinal study."

I mean, the four articles mostly don't have terrible advice, though I repeatedly found myself thinking that it maybe doesn't take any "poly wisdom" to tell people that water is wet. Deciding to "go poly" certainly doesn't automatically confer ANY wisdom, & sometimes seems to go the opposite direction.
