Jenny Block writes for a variety of regional and national publications as well as for various anthologies. The inspiration for her new book, "Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage" stems from her piece, “Portrait of an Open Marriage” which ran in Tango, and was reprinted by Cosmopolitan Germany and The Huffington Post.

Jenny holds both her Bachelor’s and her Master’s in English from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she taught composition for nearly ten years. She also spent time teaching at the University of Richmond as well as at Strayer University and wrote and lectured about teaching and learning for Newsweek Magazine and Addison Wesley Longman Publishing.

Jenny liked a quote
10547
“i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh ... And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill

of under me you so quite new.”
E.E. Cummings

“They were living proof that even the happiest and most sexually satisfied couples aren’t immune to outside desires.”
Jenny Block, Open: Love, Sex and Life in an Open Marriage

“That dichotomy, in which the male half of a partnership wants a kitten in the kitchen and a tiger in the bedroom, is incredibly emotionally draining and confusing for women, whether they’re married or not.”
Jenny Block, Open: Love, Sex and Life in an Open Marriage

“She molded herself into the woman society said (and Brian agreed) she was supposed to be, only to get the backhanded message that her uptight ways were boring and priggish.”
