The third annual International Academic Conference on Polyamory starts today at the Clark Kerr conference center at the University of California, Berkeley. With an amazing line up of speakers, researchers, activists, cultural critics, and polyamorous glitterati, this should be a fabulous event!

This year the theme is the future of monogamy and non-monogamy — should be quite interesting!
Due to inclement weather and unsafe travel conditions, Emory University will remain closed today and the Sex Week talk I was scheduled to give has been postponed. Sorry to everyone who was going to attend the panel, please come see me at Charis
Books on March 19 at 7:30pm.
I will be presenting at Emory Sex Week this coming Thursday 2/13, assuming the weather cooperates and people are able to safely navigate the Atlanta streets. The panel, (Not Your Average) Sex Ed 101, starts at 7:30 in the Few Multipurpose Room and features Elisabeth Sheff, Sally Lehr, and Gaelle Sabben talking about a diverse range of topics from polyamory and BDSM to advances in permanent birth control and sexuality for people of size. Please join us!
There are a limited number of tickets left for the 9th annual Poly Living Conference that begins this Friday, February 21, in Philadelphia. This year’s key note address from respected poly community leader Anita Wagner Illig promises to be be educational and entertaining, and the other 19 workshops cover topics ranging from BDSM to Religion, with gender roles, legal issues, neuroscience and burlesque offer something for everyone. I am excited to present my research on poly families with children, and if you want to catch that session I will see you there on Saturday, February 8 during session two at 10:45 am.
If you can, please come join us and learn new things, meet new people, and mingle with the glitterati of the poly scene (which is usually not very glittery). For more information and to get tickets, you can find Poly Living on the web at
Hope to see you there!
