To make an open marriage work, Franklin and Celeste knew they needed to make sure no one else ever came between them. That meant there had to be rules. No overnights, no falling in love, and either one of them could ask the other to end an outside relationship if it became too much to deal with. It worked for nearly two decades, and their relentless focus on their own relationship let them turn a blind eye to the emotional wreckage they were leaving behind them. The rules did not prepare them for Amber. ´´I have a question,´´ Amber would say. And whatever came next would send a wrecking ball through Franklin and Celeste´s comforting illusions. Amber was the first of Franklin s polyamorous secondary partners to insist on being treated like a person, and the first to peel back the layers of insecurity and fear that surrounded their relationship. Amber was a game changer. A game-changing relationship is one that uproots and redirects your life. It overthrows your assumptions about who you are and why. It awakens you to possibilities you´d never conceived of. It disrupts. And it is the unspoken elephant in the attractive showroom of polyamorous relationships. This book is the true story of a game-changing relationship that changed not only Franklin and Celeste´s lives, but the face of the modern polyamory movement. A game-changing relationship can happen to anyone. How will you handle it when it happens to you? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Fulgham, Sasja Towe.

Marriage and monogamy are not what they used to be, and today many couples are opting to start families before getting married, or deciding not to get married at all. At the same time, gay couples in states that recognize same-sex marriage are getting married in droves. Some people prefer non-monogamy and have relationships that include swinging and polyamory. The landscape of American marriage and relationships is changing, and a variety of family systems are developing and becoming more common. The Polyamorists Next Door introduces polyamorous families, in which people are free to pursue emotional, romantic, and sexual relationships with multiple people at the same time. They do it openly and with support from their partners, sometimes forming multi-partner relationships or other arrangements that allow for emotional and sexual freedom within the family system. In colorful and moving details, this audiobook explores how polyamorous relationships come to be, how they grow and change, how they manage the ins and outs of daily family life, and how they cope with the challenges they face both within their families and from society. Using polyamorists own words, Dr. Elisabeth Sheff examines polyamorous households and reveals their advantages, disadvantages, and the daily lives of those living in them. While polyamorous families are increasingly common, fairly little is known about them outside of their own social circles or of the occasional media sensationalism. This book provides information that will be useful for professionals with polyamorous clients, educators who wish to understand or teach polyamory, and especially people who wish to better understand polyamory themselves or explain it to their potential partners, adult children, or in-laws. 1.

Warning: Strong Adult ContentMike Angells is an openly gay CID inspector based in North East England. There are three men in his life: Raith Balan, Phil Roberts and Ross Whitburn. Mike is particularly close to Ross.Following a routine but significant investigation into thefts of farm machinery, Mike investigates the suspicious death of a footballer. The suspect?s father threatens to expose a crime Ross committed many years earlier, unless Mike withholds evidence that would incriminate his son. Mike must choose which badge he is loyal to?the one he was given when he joined the Force or the tattoo he wears that symbolises polyamory. His decision leads to a brutal conclusion when two men who bear grudges, an ex-con and Balan?s ex-lover, combine to exact revenge.Interspersed with Mike?s story are comments made by Raith, Phil and Ross about Mike, each other, and the nature of their polyamorous relationship. It works for them, but, as Phil explains, they work at it.Neither full-on erotica nor hard-boiled crime, and with many light moments, this is a story about love, hatred, and the price which is paid for loyalty.
It´s Called Polyamory:Coming Out About Your Nonmonogamous Relationships Tamara Pincus, Rebecca Hiles
Der Begriff der Polyamory tauchte in den 1960er Jahren erstmals in den USA auf und wird seit etwa zehn Jahren auch hierzulande diskutiert. Er steht für ein Beziehungsgeflecht, in dem mehrere Liebesbeziehungen verantwortungsvoll, ehrlich, offen und verbindlich gleichzeitig entwickelt und gelebt werden. ´´Polyamory´´ entfernt einen ´´blinden Fleck´´ in der publizistischen Landschaft und geht der Frage nach, auf welchem Konzept der Liebe die Polyamory aufbaut. Der gegenwärtigen Forschungsstand wird ausführlich dargestellt. Die Auseinandersetzungen um ´´vielfältige Lebensweisen´´ werden aufgenommen, Polyamory wird als Aspekt in der Dynamisierung der Triade Geschlecht-Sexualität-Lebensform betrachtet. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt Stellung der Polyamory innerhalb der Sexualpädagogik, in Hinblick auf eine Erziehung und Beratung, die Selbstbestimmung und Selbstverantwortung in den Bereichen Sexualität und Lebensweisen aller Menschen anerkennt und entsprechende Handlungsansätze entwickelt.
Contemporary relationships are in a state of rapid evolution. These changes can and should empower people with the opportunity to develop partnerships based on their own sexualities, understandings, and agreements. This makes it possible to create what Kenneth Haslam, founder of the Kinsey Institute´s Polyamory Archive, has called designer relationships. The possibilities are limitless, and thinking about a partnership as something people can craft allows for flexibility and change. Relationships can open and close or have varying degrees and kinds of openness as circumstances demand. In the context of a designer relationship, decisions are made mutually, consciously, and deliberately. Best-selling authors and relationship experts Patricia Johnson and Mark A. Michaels are exemplars of this life choice, and have studied polyamory for over 20 years. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lyssa Browne.

A vast alien landscape, a human culture based on our own, yet evolved in strange ways by the forces of an inimical nature provide a panoramic backdrop for the romantic adventures of a large cast of memorable & attractive characters. Courtship Rite is an SF novel by American writer Donald Kingsbury, originally serialized in Analog magazine in 1982. The book is set in the same universe as some of his other stories, such as ´´Shipwright´´ (1978) and the unpublished ´´The Finger Pointing Solward´´. In the UK, the novel was entitled Geta; in France, Parade nuptiale. Courtship Rite was the 1st winner of the Compton Crook Award for best first novel and was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1983. The novel details the attempts of two of the priest-clans, the Kaiel & the Mnankrei, to expand into territory controlled by the Stgal. Ultimately, all the priest clans are trying to attain dominance of the planet through the use of new technology, propaganda, treachery, and ´´war´´, a new concept in this world. Previously, killing was done merely in order to provide food. Jo Walton remarked that Courtship Rite ´´is about a distant generation of colonists on a planet with no usable animals. This is the book with everything, where everything includes cannibalism, polyamory, evolution and getting tattoos so your skin will make more interesting leather when you´re dead.´´ 1.

In der heutigen Gesellschaft genießt die Monogamie als Beziehungsmodell eine wenig hinterfragte Monopolstellung. Doch schon lange hat sich das romantische Ideal ´´ewiger Liebe´´ als unrealistisch erwiesen und ist einer eher ernüchternden Praxis der ´´seriellen Monogamie ´´ gewichen. Ohne die Illusion, es könne nur eine einzige wahre Liebe geben, wird der Sinn von ´´Treue´´ aber fragwürdig. Warum muss eine alte Liebe enden, wenn eine neue beginnt? Im Buch wird der Umgang mit Liebe und Sexualität neu überdacht. Der Autor zeigt, dass sich Gefühl und Verstand, Verbindlichkeit und Freiheit nicht entgegenstehen müssen. Das monogame Liebesmodell beruht auf Vorurteilen und beinhaltet Zumutungen, die nicht nur aus hedonistischen, sondern auch aus ethischen Gründen kritikwürdig sind. Auch Alternativen wie ´´Don´t ask, don´t tell´´-Vereinbarungen, Swinger-Beziehungen und Polyamory werden einer kritischen Diskussion unterzogen.
