Polyamory is all the rage these days, but really, how much has changed since the key parties and free love of days gone by? This manifesto takes aim at all the pseudo-tantra getting passed off as radical spirituality, and challenges everyone to consider growing up, getting real, and making the tough choices that a true spiritual path has always required.

  • higherogamy higherogamy @BexAndTheCity beautiful! sounds like you've got a rich and supportive crew. I bet there's lots of folks who could benefit from your collective insights and lessons learned.

    And to clarify, this piece starts with a loving critique of a very specific subset of broader poly culture--most of it entwined in some way or another with the intersection of Burning Man and neo-tantric infomarketers (whom I hold to a way higher standard than simple practitioners). But really, after the ruffled feathers, I'm WAY more interested in exploring the actual thesis of the piece--namely, regardless of which door we choose to step through, what are we collectively finding at the holy crossroads of sex and spirit--and how might we craft a collective culture of kickass love, fun and living large? (thanks for posting!)

  • higherogamy higherogamy Dear Sunyata--thanks for the callout and you've got me dead to rights :) You must excuse the transitory Pink Panthering here--working extremely hard in the slightly more default world (aka big brands and institutions) to create playgrounds and training spaces for us all to really and truly uplevel our games (and scale this work beyond the counterculture).

    In the higher end of those offerings, we will absolutely be returning to these dialogues in the flesh. So if, in this age of internet ubiquity, I can be allowed to 'dress straight and infiltrate' just a little longer, I promise I'm carrying a brightly burning torch (and if you ever make it to a certain stretch of alkaline Nevada desert in late August, stoked for a bear hug and a high five!)

    www.facebook.com/higherogamy is a great place to stay connected--would love to hear your voice on all this more deeply

  • BexAndTheCity Bex van Koot, Writer at Freelancer There is no way in the world that raising kids would be easier for me with fewer hands to hold them and eyes to watch them and stories to raise them up on.

    Polyamory doesn't have to be entirely about sex (the word does mean 'many LOVES' after all, not 'many fuck buddies') and I disagree completely that parents having a healthy sex life is bad for their children. IMO parents who hate each other because they have NO sex life are way worse.

    And when it comes to death.... being poly makes it so much LESS scary for me, knowing that when I or one of my partners dies, neither of us will be left alone in the world. (Also, I don't believe that ageing is unsexy, so that helps.)

    You seem to be making a lot of assumptions about what polyamory means, and about what other people desire out of life. I get that these are assumptions made from your own experience, but they definitely do not speak for my kind of poly. Being poly, for me, means having the ability to live within a supportive community, to love the people I love, and to do so in the way that serves each moment of our lives to the greatest good for us all.

  • sunyatasatchitananda Sunyata Satchitananda, Life Coach at Sunyata Satchitananda Oh no you didn't just whimp out at the end with that 'discarnate being from another star system' B.S. did you? I loved your truth-telling, but you gotta show up and not hide behind delusional —what was the term, 'self: selfie' internet persona?!!! Take a bow—the 'real' person who wrote this article! 3 months ago
