Polyamory in the News!

Dagbladet (Oslo, Norway)

A Norwegian newspaper runs a very long article on "polyamori" in its magazine insert (Jan. 12, 2008). The case histories, however, are set in England, with commentary by English biologist and poly activist Anna Sharman. The story is hugely upbeat as best I can tell. A bit of fractured translation:

"It just happened. Instead of to be jealous at each other, we came to be comfortable right off. It truly gladdened me that Davina had met a girl she liked saw be comfortable," say Dean. A eve after they all three had been at a bar, closed they in bed. And it lasted. "We stayed it in bed a couple of weeks," smiles Davina. Dean and Jennifer am laughing.

Here's the text of the article in Norwegian.

This came to my attention by way of the Norwegian-language polyamory blog Magic Penny, which has a picture of the article's opening page (Jan. 13 entry).

Update Jan 31: The Magic Penny folks write,

"There have been some [more] articles on polyamory recently here in Norway. We have written about it on our blog and you can find the links to the articles here.

"—Capricorny and Inni"

Update August 2009: Also, check out Polynorge.no.

P.S.: The name Magic Penny is from the Malvina Reynolds song. Which became kind of the theme song at the 2005 Loving More East retreat, as sung (if I remember right) by Ben Silver:

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away;
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

It's just like a magic penny,
Hold it tight and you won't have any;
Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many
They'll roll all over the floor....
