"Husbands And Wife"

CBS4-TV, Miami

A local TV news show in Miami does a dippy and breathless report on the poly trend. Never mind the eye-rollers here; at least it gets the concept out and shows someone reading Google results, which is the sane way to start learning more.

From the station's website (Nov. 15, 2006):

...Varela reports that while the threesome embraces their lifestyle and share the same bed, they know what they're doing is a big taboo.

"You can come out and people freak out," Cat told CBS4.

Amidst all the controversy, polyamory seems to be a growing trend. A Google search produced more than a million references, including a polyamory newsgroup credited with starting the movement in 1992.

...CBS4 did manage to find an active group here in Florida and went undercover to get a feel for how polyamorous individuals live.

Varela reported that the meeting took place in the conference room of a public library, where a dozen Florida polys meet once a month. Men, women, husbands, wives and lovers gathered, all who feel monogamy is monotonous.

The group conversed amicably, talking about their unions and how fulfilling they felt their lifestyle is.
