Executive Director



Loving More Nonprofit offers the press insight into polyamory. Robyn Trask is available for interviews Robyn is a leading expert in polyamorous relationships and the polyamory movement. We wish the Browns luck in their case and offer our support of their choices. 


Statement from Loving More and Robyn Trask


Loving More Nonprofit, the leading national organization for polyamory awareness, is pleased to see Kody Brown and his lawyer, George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley, taking on the issue of choice in personal adult relationships. For too long polygamist and polyamorists have had to live in fear of social persecution and even in some cases legal prosecution simply because they choose to love differently. Though religious based polygamy and secular polyamory come from very different backgrounds and basis, they share in common the belief that people can love romantically and spiritually more than one person.


“It is an issue of personal freedom and choice about who we love and how we love”, explains Loving More’s executive director and relationship expert Robyn Trask. “The government has no right to dictate who we love, how we love or whom we choose to have sex with.”


When Loving More first learned of the Brown family’s dilemma, “our hearts went out to them.” Over the years Loving More has been witness to discrimination in employment, child custody and even housing, all because people love more than one person openly and honestly. People who have affairs often suffer far less consequences then those who love honestly and ethically. This in spite of research studies which clearly indicate humans are not by nature monogamous.


Polyamory is simply loving more than one person romantically. Polygamy is multiple spouses of either sex. Polygamists in the US are predominantly polygynists, that is they are marriages of men to several women. These are based on religious beliefs and only men are allowed to have multiple spouses. By contrast, polyamory is predominately secular and based in equality for all partners. Both women and men can and often do have multiple partners. Some of these partners live together in marriage type arrangements and some do not.


Robyn Trask says “Our big concern in the Brown case is that if he can be prosecuted for polygamy so can many polyamorists. I know of several polyamory families where a woman lives with two men and considers both men her husbands though she is only married to one legally and families where a man considers himself married to two women. This is no different then Mr Brown. Where does the intrusions into personal choice about love, emotions and sex stop?"


The unfortunate truth is Mormon polygamy has often been associated with child sexual abuse and abuse against women. Loving More recognizes this problem and does not condone adults engaging with anyone underage in a sexual relationship polyamorous or otherwise. Many monogamous unions based in fundamental religious practices suffer similar and even the same abuses.


“I believe it is important to separate the issues of personal relationship choice, abuse of women and children and sexual abuse,” says Robyn. “Abuse against children and women is rampant and is an issue unto itself, though sometimes linked to fundamentalist Mormon sects, it can just as easily be linked to both radical religions as well as  mainstream organizations such as the Catholic Church. It is my hope this case will sever the issues of polygamy, polyamory and abuse. I have seen a few episodes of sister wives and they deal with similar issues of many polyamorous families I know. There are differences since many polyamorous relationships allow for both men and women to experience multiple loves. In the Brown family the children are happy and healthy, the women are and were adults who made a choice. For me I prefer polyamory since I love the freedom of sharing my love with three amazing men and the women they love. In the end the litigation is a question of the state or federal government having the right to tell individuals who and how they can love. In a free country this should not even be an issue.”
