Als der junge Musikstar Angel auf 10 Millionen Dollar verklagt wird, vermittelt ihm sein Manager den eleganten und erfolgreichen Anwalt Vincent Gable. Es funkt sofort zwischen den beiden so unterschiedlichen Männern, doch Angel verdrängt seine Probleme und daher geht das erste Zusammentreffen mit Vincent gründlich schief. Der Anwalt verzichtet lieber auf ein lukratives Mandat, als sich von dem unreifen Musiker auf der Nase herumtanzen zu lassen. Angel ist wider Willen davon beeindruckt, dass ihn jemand so kaltschnäuzig abserviert hat. Und auch sonst geht ihm der große, kräftig gebaute Mann mit der sexy Samtstimme nicht mehr aus dem Sinn. Nach einem anstrengenden Videodreh nimmt er all seinen Mut zusammen, besucht Vincent in seiner Wohnung und verführt ihn. Vincent übernimmt nicht nur das Mandat, sondern wird Angels Liebhaber. Aber er glaubt, mit 40 Jahren zu alt für Angel zu sein. Und dann präsentiert ihm Angel auch noch seinen jungen Lebensgefährten Jamie ... Polyamory, MM, MMM, sexy Anwalt, Gay Bear, Ernährungsstörung
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.

This Preface is 50 pages long. Why a Preface? Too long? There is precedent for writing a long preface to a theater play. G. B. Shaws Prefaces were written to engage his readers interest in the plays central topic and in the dialectic that was at the basis of the drama. Invariably the themes Shaw chose were of social interest, and the prefaces were polemic in nature. This sobriety of purpose never deterred Shaw from imbuing his plays with humor, whimsy and lively dramatic conflict. He incurred the wrath of his Fabian associates who disapproved of what they took to be levity. What they failed to appreciate was that you cant use drama for preaching. If you have a cause to promote, an option to explore, a paradox to unravel, you must give equal representation to opposing viewpoints otherwise there is no drama! I openly acknowledge my admiration for Shaw, and my desire to emulate his model. I always found Shaws Prefaces to be thoroughly engaging, but it was not until I embarked on writing Meet The Fractals that I found writing a Preface to be an absolute necessity. It was through writing the Preface that I found the arguments, the plot and the characters. As the Preface discloses, this is the story of a group of people who, each for different reasons, have decided that monogamy is an outmoded custom because it is more honoured in the breach than in the observance. As statics reveal, fifty per cent of all marriages fail! The union lasts only until divorce do us part. In Meet The Fractals you will meet ten people, five of each gender, who decide to apply the theories of quantum physics to living. They commit to a group marriage: an extreme form of polyamory. They accept that human sexuality is in essence, chaotic, and this chaos is better managed by accepting it than resisting it. The play covers only the first 48 hours of their meeting and their deliberations, during which time they have to ward off attacks by an ambitious politician and an angry puritan

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.
Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, , course: Political Philosophy, language: English, abstract: Like any controversial topic, introduction of same-sex marriages has engendered multiple arguments - both in favor and against it - which come from various spheres of social life, from religion to law. For instance, a debatabase website ProCons.org contains 15 arguments for and 13 ones against same-sex marriages ; and one can imagine that the actual number of all possible arguments is by far not limited even to this quantity. People who have not gone deep into this debate might wonder why this topic is disputable: seemingly, legalization of same-sex marriages is for the benefit of LGBT people, while it does not anyhow harm straight people, therefore, it should leave the latter ones either positive (as satisfaction of other peoples needs somehow brings harmony and friendship to the entire society), or, at least, indifferent (as same-sex marriages are not related to heterosexuals in any way). Speaking in terms of biology, the relationship between gay and straight people on the issue of same-sex marriages can, at the first glance, be viewed as commensalism: one organism turns the relationship to its advantage while the other one is neither better off, nor worse off. Yet, taking a closer look at the debate allows us to understand that both proponents and opponents of gay marriages would strongly disagree with my commensalism assumption: Amongst the likeliest effects of gay marriage is to take us down a slippery slope to legalized polygamy and polyamory (group marriage). Marriage will be transformed into a variety of relationship contracts, linking two, three, or more individuals (however weakly and temporarily) in every conceivable combination of male and female (Kurtz 2003). The announcement I made last week about my views on marriage equality -- same principle. The basic idea -- I want everybody treated fairly in this country. We have never gone wrong when we expanded rights and responsibilities to everybody. That doesnt weaken families; that strengthens families. Its the right thing to do (President Barack Obama, The View TV show, 14 May 2012). Although the two opinions oppose each other, there is one thing they have in common: they both imply that expanding the right to marry to homosexual couples would affect the institutions of family and marriage themselves, either positively or negatively.
