Slate features an article on polyamory this week with the above mentioned title.

It’s a great look at the history of poly movements before, and clearly contrasts polyamory from both polygamy and swinging. I also appreciated the honesty of the article, too often discussions of one of polyamory’s early pionerrs, John Noyes, tends to sugar-coat his world view and leave out that he was a pro-ponent of incest in addition to poly. As far as information goes it’s an appetizer, not a meal, but it’s a tasty and filling one, and perhaps most importantly it’s one that’s likely to be digested by many in the vanilla world.
