Polyamory in the News!
. . . by Alan M.

October 23, 2015

Poker star Justin Bonomo "embraces polyamory." Excellent spokesperson!

Poker News

And fresh this morning from the world of championship cards. . .

He and the interviewer just nail it. If you want to know what to say when a microphone is stuck in your face for 4 minutes, watch this. And he plugs More Than Two, which he's read.

The link (October 23, 2015).

He tweets, "Just had the most interesting interview I've ever done [in 10 years of pro poker]. With @AuntyChardonnay about being polyamorous bit.ly/1KtPNPS".

More about him. Official tournament winnings $7.2 million.

I actually think this could do damage to the polyamory movement...that is, whatever sense can be made of what he's saying between the numerous times he says "like". He isn't well spoken and he makes reference to activities that are more along the lines of swingers (watching) than what polyamorous folks do.

What a great, down-to-earth and honest interview! I am so pleasantly surprised that this came out of what could have just been a conversation about poker.

In reply to the first comment, it was an off the cuff question that he clearly wasn't expecting. It's not like he was in front of an audience speaking about something he was prepared to talk about. Lay off a little bit, he brought some awareness about something most people probably don't think about, or have way worse perceptions of that lifestyle.

In reply to the first comment, there's a movement that's gaining a lot of momentum advocating acceptance of a fairly widerange of ideas and practices when speaking of polyamorous reltionhips, and consequently minimizing the instances where polys claim other polys are "doing poly wrong." His references to watching are well within the range of behaviors that many polys exhibit within emotionally connected and loving relationships.
