V DAY TRUPPLE TROUBLE


As many of you already know, I am a fierce believer in the Testimony of Plural Marriage given to the Prophet Joseph Smith Junior in 1843.  While the recent decision handed down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California declaring "Prop 8" unconstitutional might bode well for gay marriage, we've still got a long ways to go before the state recognizes plural relationships-- gay, straight and everything in between.  Huffington Post's DC bureau recently sat down with psychotherapist and sex advice columnist Tamara Pincus to discuss her own poly-amorous relationships and the specific challenges presented by one of capitalism's most noxious reifications of commercial exploitation: Valentine's Day.  I won't reveal too much, but her answers shouldn't surprise you.  While not entirely out to her neighbors, Pincus doesn't take the holiday seriously and neither, perhaps, should you.
