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.

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/acx0/039934/bk_acx0_039934_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Many Love:A Memoir of Polyamory and Finding Love(s) Sophie Lucido Johnson
Public libraries offer all kinds of book genres, and yes, they also carry porn! Susie starts today´s show off with a look at the New York Public Library´s extensive erotica collection. In the past, the library classified all racy materials with a triple star (***), which meant you could only view them under supervision. But now many pulp fictions and hidden treasures have been liberated and are more accessible. What fun to peruse vintage erotic Japanese imagery or read Henry Miller´s typewritten manuscript for Tropic of Capricorn. Time to renew your library card! Next, Susie smells a rat. A swinger complained to Susie´s colleague, fellow sexpert Louloria, that all people in the polyamory scene are ugly. Susie weighs in on what she might have recommended to the complainer - and speculates on why this guy is pointing a finger at a group he wants to be part of. Then, it´s ´´What´s New on Audible´´. An unusual book that´s part poetry, memoir, and fiction is this week´s pick. No Apologies by J. A. Carter-Winward, who also narrates, is a compelling slice of human experience in all its crass, hopeful, and tender glory. Have a question or news story for Susie?
