Polyamorous at 27/Paleo/South Africa

A young woman discovers that monogamy might not be a good fit, and other news.

Last week, Sophie Lucido Johnson published an illustrated essay on the popular site Jezabel, about her experience of discovering/deciding that she is polyamorous. I find it to be a charming piece, but I've got a bias, as the book I co-authored with my wife, Cacilda Jethá is featured in Sophie's essay.

In other news, I'll be speaking about paleo politics at the PaleoFX Conference in Austin in April. In May, Cacilda and I will be in South Africa, where I'll be speaking at the Conscious Sexuality Conference . I hope you'll come say hello if you find yourself at either event.
