“I Just Can’t Decide…” Polyamory and the Choice of Monogamy

My latest piece for Industry’s May/June 2011 issue, a look at polyamory, the enjoyment of many loves, and what nonmonogamy offers to those who practice it. What do our beliefs about monogamy say about us, and our relationships?

“I Just Can’t Decide”: Given that, biologically, monogamy is a purely artificial and conjured state, does it make sense to explore a number of love options…at the same time?

“It was a revelation for me that it’s perfectly natural to like different people for different reasons. Why should we hide mere attraction? Maybe making it so taboo contributes, ironically, to cheating, and the allure of forbidden fruit.”
