  • Informative books on the subjects of polyamory and/or open relationships

    About a month ago I purchased eightbooks on the subjects of polyamory and/or open relationships. The only one of the eight that I've read straight through is Eros: a Journey of Multiple Loves, by Anderlini-D'Onofrio. I did enjoy reading it, but it did deviate from the subject of polyamory.

    A few other books of interest are:

    Polyamory Many Loves: The Poly-Tantric Lovestyle: A personal account by Janet Kira Lessin seems like it will be a fun book to read. I've only thumbed through it so far, but there is a bit of erotic spice in her book also, aside from just definitions.

    Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships by Tristan Taormino was also well worth its purchase price. This book explains various types of concensual non-monogamy, from swinging to polyamory, and a few types in-between. I've selectively read through this book. It was entertaining and informative. She includes the results of a survey of "open" couples, and also provides an example story of a relationship with each type of arrangement covered. The author is well known for her anal sex guides and seminars.

    The Polyamory Handbook: A User's Guide by Peter J. Benson looks like it will be a good read. I've only thumbed through it so far, but it looks to be well organized and contains lots of advice about polyamory.

    The New Intimacy: Open-Ended Marriage and Alternative Lifestyles by Ronald Mazur didn't look as good as I had expected when I thumbed through it. I cetainly liked the title, and the authors favortism of an open marriage arangement, but the book seemed slightyly dated (it was first copyrighted in the 70's, but the latest edition was revised since 2000) and not quite as interesting when compared to the other books mentioned above.

    I've also read The Ethical Slut, which was great.
