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.

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?

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.

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.
