The Smart Girl´s Guide to Polyamory:Everything You Need to Know About Open Relationships, Non-Monogamy, and Alternative Love Dedeker Winston
Can you love more than one person? Can you have multiple romantic partners without jealousy or cheating? Absolutely! Polyamorous people have been paving the way through trial and painful error. Now the new book More Than Two can help you find your own way. With completely new material and a fresh approach, Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert wrote More Than Two to expand on and update the themes and ideas in the wildly popular polyamory website morethantwo.com. From ancient Greece through the many dynasties of China and to current practices of nonmonogamy, people have openly engaged in multiple intimate relationships. Not until the late 20th century, however, was a word coined that encapsulated the practice, philosophies, edicts, and ethics: polyamory (poly = many + amore = love). For Franklin Veaux, who has been polyamorous for his entire adult life, the emerging framework and subsequent vocabulary for his lifestyle was a light in the dark. Candidly sharing his experiences and thoughts online catapulted his website, morethantwo.com, among the first dedicated to the poly lifestyle, to one of the top-ranking on the subject. In recent years, as more people have discovered polyamory as a legitimate and desirable option for how they conduct their relationships, Franklin and one of his partners, Eve Rickert, saw that there was a growing need for a comprehensive guide to the lifestyle. More Than Two is that guide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Beck. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/035010/bk_acx0_035010_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

A journey from monogamy to swinging and polyamory starts with a single kiss. Over the course of two novels by Cooper S. Beckett, follow Jennifer and Ryan Lambert who have reached the very edge of their marital contentment, wondering if this is just what modern marriage looks like. When they meet the Shepards, they find Bruce and Paige so very sophisticated, witty...sexy. The Shepards don´t seem to have any of the boredom that has crept into their own marriage. They´re at ease, they´re funny, they´re...flirty? Everything makes more sense when Jennifer and Ryan find out the truth about Bruce and Paige. The Shepards are swingers, and the Lamberts want in. The next several years of their lives will be a wild ride through the intense hedonistic world of the swinging lifestyle and into polyamory, an erotic journey of orgies, swingers parties, miscommunication, surprise attraction, and exploring sexuality, that ultimately takes them to the tropical paradise of a swingers resort in Mexico. Along with Bruce and Paige and other exploring couples, they have descended upon Aphrodite´s Resort and Spa, 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. Previously published separately, A Life Less Monogamous and Approaching the Swinglarity, two novels by Cooper S. Beckett, are now available in a single volume along with two additional short stories from The Swingularity. 1. Language: English.

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.
With his one-of-a kind blend of autobiography, pop culture, and plainspoken Buddhism, Brad Warner explores an A-to-Z of sexual topics; from masturbation to dating, gender identity to pornography. In addition to approaching sexuality from a Buddhist perspective, he looks at Buddhism - emptiness, compassion, karma - from a sexual vantage. Throughout, he stares down the tough questions: Can prostitution be ´´right livelihood´´? Can a good spiritual master also be really, really bad? And ultimately, what´s love got to do with any of it? While no puritan when it comes to non-vanilla sexuality, Warner offers a conscious approach to sexual ethics and intimacy; real-world wisdom for our times. 1. Language: English.
