My wife and I have a blessed relationship. The reason for this is because our relationship is grounded in certain keys ways. We married with the intent to mutually grow together, to openly experience each other's natures, and to be supportive rather than judgmental of each other. We married for the pro-family oriented structure that a committed partnership can bring to a home environment, and simply because we love each other. And, at first glance, our relationship appears to be the traditionall ...more

This book always comes up in discussions about polyamory and its many forms. It is a great intro to polyamory, as well as a good reference for people already into the poly lifestyle. I found some important parts to be geared more for later in the relationship rather than introductory. But all in all, an excellent resource for polyamory.

Blah, blah, blah. I was kind of excited to read this book to know more about the polyamorous lifestyle. I was kind of disappointed though because the material seemed to be common sense for someone who wants this type of lifestyle: overcome jealousy, get involved with people that you feel like you can get involved with, and don't get involved with people you don't like. Seriously? That's the advice?

This book is a great introduction to the polyamorous lovestyle and an excellent way to explain to folks the differences many people who identify as "poly" see existing between themselves and "swingers" because there are fundamental differences...the nomenclature just hasn't settled out yet. One complaint- I wish there was a newer edition with more up-to-date resources.

Polyvangelical. Comforting if you're the choir wanting to be preached to. Has a few case studies, not a great deal of practical advice. Read Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy instead, or Tristan Taormino.

Enjoyed reading this, and getting inspiration on being more honest with others. Not necessarily the path for me, but interesting none the less. There are times where the author made me go 'Huh?', like when she was over promoting her workshops (the promotion of her other stuff in this book was the "surprise" it was the over kill of it at times) and a few times when she, more or less, forced the idea that "If where you're living is TOO rural or TOO isolated - move and move NOW!" sort of attitude b ...more

You can have as many sexual partners as you like, and so can they; and as long as everyone knows what's what, it's all hunky-dory.
