Participants Wanted!

So, I’ve decided I want to make another edition of the book.

What i want to move away from is the book in its current state as It’s too involved with BDSM as the interviews where sourced from a kink related website. I would also like to include photographs.

I have met many new polyamorous people, I’d like to get some new insights.

If you would be happy in answering a set of 10 questions, either by text or on a video recorded on skype please contact me.

You’d have to be comfortable to have the material used online and in print. All names with be changed and I will be respectful of your privacy.

If any photographs will be taken, you will have control on the final edit.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Dr Meg Barker

Most recently i was invited to a talk on non monogamy at Cambridge University by Dr Meg Barker.

With her kind permission she allowed me to record the lecture.

Here it is: Non Monogamy Talk

Rewriting the Rules

Meg Barker

We live in a time of great uncertainty about relationships. We search for The One, but find ourselves staying single because nobody measures up. We long for a happily-ever-after, but break-up after break-up leaves us bruised and confused. We find a partner, but the reality of the relationship is not what we expected, and it becomes hard to balance it with all the other things that we want out of life.

No wonder we look for rules about relationships to help us to make sense of it all. But which to choose from all the rules on offer? Do we stick to the old rules we learnt growing up, even though they don’t completely fit? Or do we try something new and risk being out on our own and regarded as a freak? And what about the times when the rules we love by seem to make things worse rather than better?

This book is a friendly guide through the complicated, and often contradictory, maze of romantic relationships, exploring the rules that are out there today and the advice that they give us about attraction and sex, commitment and conflict, and many other issues.

Dr. Meg Barker is a sexual and relationship therapist, researcher, and author of many books and articles on relationships and sexuality. She edits the journal Psychology & Sexuality, lectures on psychology and counselling, and is recognised as a world expert in her field.

The Polyamory Project Skype Interviews – Dennis Queen

Another element of the project was to interview people via Skype.

Using a program which would record the video and audio I asked the participants to answer the questions I’d provided them.

 Dennis Queen was my first participant, this interview can be viewed here.

This interview is the same questions as the book, but this interview is very special as it touches on Polyamory and bereavement.

More information about Dennis can be found on their blog.

The Polyamory Project Interview Book And The Kinsey Institute

I got a very exciting e-mail in the last couple of days, from Kenneth R. Haslam MD. Kenneth is the founder for the collection of polyamory history for the Kinsey Institute.

Founded in 1947, The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University promotes interdisciplinary research and scholarship in the fields of human sexuality, gender, and reproduction.

The Kenneth R. Haslam Collection, developed by Dr. Haslam in order to further public and academic understanding of polyamory, contains a wealth of materials, including books, conference materials, research articles, newsletters, archives of web-based discussion groups, and more. The collection can be found here

I am very very proud to be contributing to this.

For those who aren’t aware of who Dr Kinsey is have a look at this.

He was also the subject of a film about his life and works.
