It´s Called Polyamory:Coming Out About Your Nonmonogamous Relationships Tamara Pincus, Rebecca Hiles
Starting with a first date with a couple of swingers; followed by working through social anxiety and shyness; recognizing the importance of touch in life; evolving feelings about love and expectations; having threesomes, orgies, and prostate orgasms; going through a divorce; and leveling up in life and sexuality. For five years, Cooper S. Beckett has written for Life on the Swingset. The website was born out of the feeling that he´d learned enough in his whole year of swinging to tell other people how to live their nonmonogamous lives. His hubris can be seen from space. Here, he has collected personal essays, stories, erotica, and prescriptive how-tos into this memoir of his life, My Life on the Swingset. He may be biased when it comes to swinging, polyamory, and other forms of ethical nonmonogamy (in fact, he most certainly is), but he doesn´t sugarcoat it. He speaks honestly and earnestly about a unique way to live life, one that allows for sexual and loving growth and experimentation, a strong sense of community, and the ability to do what we all crave, whether we know it or not: to be honest with ourselves and others about what we want sexually. And out of life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cooper S. Beckett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/039934de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
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.

If the sexy construction crew were Powertools, their cousin mechanics are sure to be Hot Rods. Nothing´s sexier than seven men with hot rods. Hot Rods, Book 1 After Eli´s mother died, his father honored her life´s mission as a social worker by taking in several kids from the wrong side of the tracks. Not all of them stuck, but those who did became Eli´s quasi family. Their bonds, forged in fires set by their personal demons, are unbreakable - or so Eli wants to believe. Especially since he and Alanso, his best friend and head mechanic, witnessed the overpowering allure of polyamory while visiting the Powertools crew. Much as Eli would like to deepen the relationships among his foster brothers and sister in the Hot Rods Restoration Team, he´s hesitant to risk everything on a quick romp behind a stack of tires. But when Eli catches Alanso exploring their mutual fantasy at a known hookup spot in a public park, all bets are off. And Eli must decide if it´s time to jump in full throttle - and trust his instincts to guide him through the night. If the pair of mechanics can dodge the potholes in their own relationship, maybe they can race together toward the unconventional arrangement with Mustang Sally they both desire. Warning: Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a wild (and naughty) ride! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Salinas.

As this foursome tries to wring out every last drop of pleasure that Aphrodite´s Resort and Spa has to offer, they´re confronted with the realities of life at home, as well as complexities of exploring a life less monogamous, the spectrum of sexuality, budding and waning attraction and love, and how one truly gets the most out of an orgy. Alongside them are Alejandra and Crista, a lesbian couple on their first sexy vacation, recognizing the differences and difficulties in being the only lesbian swingers in the crowd. Raymond Horne is the host extraordinaire, on his tenth trip, who is losing his confidence and direction after watching his partner walk out the door the month before. One hundred and eleven couples have descended upon Aphrodite´s, a place of pleasure and debauchery, situated on a strip of white sand beach on the Riviera Maya for a week of the finest food and drink, meeting and flirting, and getting down and dirty with friends and lovers alike for tales of swinging and polyamory in paradise. They will experience ecstasy and strain, the spectrum of sexuality and open relationships, from bisexual exploration, budding polyamory, orgies, pegging, the value of building kegel muscles, G-spot orgasms, and more. Nothing is quite so intense and wonderful in non-monogamous lifestyles as seven straight days at a resort filled with like-minded hedonists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cooper S.

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.

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.
