The Next Battleground

The APA Division 44 Consensual Non-monogamy Task Force promotes awareness and inclusivity about consensual non-monogamy and diverse expressions of intimate relationships. These include but are not limited to: people who practice polyamory, open relationships, swinging, relationship anarchy and other types of ethical non-monogamous relationships.

Finding love and/or sexual intimacy is a central part of most people’s life experience. However, the ability to engage in desired intimacy without social and medical stigmatization is not a liberty for all. This task force seeks to address the needs of people who practice consensual non-monogamy, including their intersecting marginalized identities.

The goal of the task force is to generate research, create resources, and advocate for the inclusion of consensual non-monogamous relationships in the following four areas:

-Basic and applied research
-Education and training
-Psychological practice
-Public interest

  1. Whooo, fun!  Makes ya think you were born too soon.  Must be how Phillip Larkin felt:

    ”Sexual intercourse began / In nineteen-sixty-three,/ Between the end of the Chatterly ban/And the Beatles’ first LP./ (Rather late for me.).”

  3. The APA, like so many professional and academic organizations these days, is little more than a front for radical leftism. Garbage, all of it.

  4. Ok,no can help: this is one of my faves, rivals “She’s Left-handed”:

    50th anniversary, happily married couple! Husband says, darling?  Our 5th child..he doesn’t look anything like the others….now, I won’t be mad, I promise, 50 years is a long time, but, honey…does he have the same father as the others?

    and Wife: oh sweetheart! Thank you, this has been such a weight on my mind!  No,  I’m sorry— he doesn’t.

    Husband: Oh…well it’s okay dearest, but…who IS  the father of our fifth child?

    Wife: You are!

  5. EThompson:
    Gee whiz; I thought I was revolutionary because I lived with husband for 5 years before marriage.

    Gee, whiz; that sounds monogamous to me.

    These things always sound like there will be no consequences but there always are.
