Open relationship, polamory, swinging, friends with benefits - are these the new faces of 21st century relationships? Or are they simply recipes for relationship disaster? In "Love Unlimited: The Joys and Challenges of Open Relationship" we follow the stories of 12 couples and individuals who are grappling with the complexities and challenges of 'responsible non-monogamy'. These stories, derived from real-life case studies, have a varied cast of characters - monogamous, heterosexual, homosexual, bi-sexual, polyamorous - but they all feature people who share a desire to find practical, down-to-earth and realistic solutions to their life situations. The stories are accompanied by detailed and informed background information on the issues and concepts involved. The tools and tips at the end of each chapter provide valuable assistance in getting to grips with any of the subjects covered.

Reviews

An excellent 'Taoist Sex 101' for wary beginners; recommended for all public libraries." -Library Journal "A beautiful example of how to personalize the information and methods carried forward from past Taoist teachings with meaningful clarification from today's knowledge." -Mantak Chia, Taoist master, author, The Multi-Orgasmic Couple "Friendly in outlook, charming in tone, illustrated appropriately, and works very gently and patiently with areas that are often fraught with tension and 'dirtiness' in our culture." -Livia Kohn, professor, Boston University "Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand real-world polyamory or simply to learn relationship skills for a happier marriage this book needs to be in the hands of therapists." -Polyamory in the News blog
