No idea why it's in the "women" section, but a very good article on Polyamoury:

Cos it's about relationships, innit? Everybody knows that men just want the sex... (actually, disproven by this very article)

I fail to understand the Grauniad's Women section - it's not daily, it's not weekly, it appears at random and has random 'human interest' stories in it. Maybe it's reserved for "G2 stories the editor found boring"?

my theory is that it comes out when The G sporadically panic about circulation and remember that they have alot of women readers, which realisation always leads to the notion that 'we' need our own special section full of stories about relationships and kids.(as there's no point covering this stuff for men, is there?)

grr.

They panic about 3 times a week, then?
You could be right...

(kids go in the 'Parenting' section on Wednesdays)
