Beyond Polyamory

  • the red victorian (map)

For many, polyamory feels like the most advanced and sophisticated mode of engaging in relationships and sexuality. In this session, we will examine whether polyamory goes far enough in revolutionizing the terrain of love and sex--not from a monogamous or heteronormative perspective, but from a radical egalitarianism perspective. We will be asking whether openness necessarily means inclusivity (i.e. whether polyamory gives access to sex and social bonds to more people than other relationship styles); whether polyamory is all that novel or unique compared with other cultural practices of sexuality and interpersonal connection; and whether polyamory's continued centering of romantic connection is desirable or socially productive--indeed, whether any amor-centric life mode can genuinely be considered emancipatory.
