This book brings together the most recent work of Caribbean psychologists in the English-speaking islands of Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad on gender and sexuality. The authors analyse the unique challenges posed by contradictions between cultural values and modern sexual expression in the region. They examine a broad range of topics such as conceptions of gender roles in primary school children, sexual behavior and emotional social intelligence in adolescents, and sexual identities and orientations in adults. Chapters cover issues including how women who have sex with women (WSWs) self-identify, the Lebenswelt (life world) of men who have sex with men (MSM) in Jamaica, transsexual care and its psychological impact, the influence of music on sexuality, how intimacy is defined, as well as the relationship between identity formation and the fear of intimacy in Jamaica, and the practice of polyamory in Jamaica and Trinidad. This distinctive collection is the first of its kind, grounded in both qualitative and quantitative research. It presents a sophisticated comparative analyses of the cultures of the Anglophone Caribbean represented by Trinidad, Jamaica and Barbados to offer a broader discussions of intimacy and relationships. With practical implications for therapy, it will be of great interest to scholars and practitioners of gender and sexuality studies, psychology and culture. Karen Anne Carpenter is a psychologist and clinical sexologist. She is the Director of The Caribbean Sexuality Research Group (CSRG) and runs the public Sexology Clinic at The University Hospital of the West Indies, along with a private practice in Jamaica. She is co-founder of the Love & Sex brand of radio & television programmes and relationship seminars and the author of Love & Sex: The Basics .

Less Ordinary, tells the story of a man whose life and marriage were torn apart by his kidnapping and abuse, and whos given a second chance for love when he meets his two other halves, a man and a woman When Benjamin is kidnapped in Brazil, life as he knew it ends, and the once happy, young man is turned into a wreck, a stranger to his family and fiancé. In his desperation he reaches out to his best friend, a former psychiatrist, for help and under his constant care he takes significant steps towards recovery. Eight years pass by, years of suffering, therapy and a painful divorce, until love finds its way into his life again, but when the love of his life turns out to be not one but two people, a man and a woman, things take an interesting turn. Less Ordinary explores the world of polyamory, the taboo of loving more than one person, in contemporary western society. Born in Transylvania, the home of the Vampires and their founding father Dracula, Monica pursued a law career having her own law practice and nine years of experience in that field back home. She speaks four languages: Romanian, Hungarian, English and Italian, but sometimes, when shes nervous, she tends to forget all of them. Monica was a fan of books, and good stories since she was a little girl, but started her writing career fairly recently. She moved to the UK a couple of years ago to follow her dream of working in Theatre and becoming an established author, and Less Ordinary is the first in the line of many tremendously successful but unsold novels to come.

Alex always knew romance would be complicated. When love came into his life with wings and horns, he knew those complications would be a little unusual. Four months after meeting Rachel and Lorelei, Alex finally has a handle on divine visitations, supernatural enemies, and the echoes of reincarnation. He might even survive bringing an angel and a demon home for Christmas with the family. He might not survive what comes next. A favor for friends brings Alex into a heated feud among Seattle´s sorcerers. The lords of Hell aren´t pleased with the chaos wrought by Lorelei´s escape, and they´re looking for payback.

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.

It´s Exit to Eden meets The Rum Diary! Spend seven days at the hedonistic tropical paradise of a swingers resort in Mexico. Just enough time to get into some very sexy trouble! Ryan and Jenn are still newbie swingers in many ways when they arrive with their friends, lovers, and playmates, Bruce and Paige, veterans of this trip. 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.

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.
