Get seduced by a polyamorous relationship!

In our monogamous word, where one in three marriages end in divorce, the idea of open relationships attracts more and more men and women who wish to foster a healthy partnership while maintaining multiple lovers.

Françoise Simpèe, an expert in the sexual, emotional, and intellectual mores of polyamory, describes the practices that make it ethically and emotionally sustainable. Through her real-life experiences, testimonials of poly men and women, and by answering questions from people who are exploring and experimenting with non-monogamy, Simpère highlights the dos and don’ts of having an open relationship and explains how to keep the love and trust of your partner alive while successfully entertaining other lovers. If you and your partner are interested in entering a polyamorous relationship, this is the definitive resource on the art and etiquette of poly-dating, how to announce your poly relationship to your family and friends, ways to stave off jealousy and how to attain a gratifying and healthy sex life.

The subject of Peter Marin’s astonishing and brilliant book is the only serious act left to man in a shifting and grotesque world–the act of sex, his only means of reaffirming his humanity, of focusing his will to live, of reaching his own spiritual; and animal nature, of realizing his humanity–and evoking  the humanity of others. Marin writes about sex as perhaps no one has since D.H. Lawrence, with a lyrical and graphic intensity that is at once intensely personal and truly passionate. In an age when sexual passion has been eroded, overexplained, reduced to a study of techniques, mechanical pleasure for a race of liberated robots. Peter Marin has restored to the act of love the profound adventure of sexuality, the sense in which “carnal” knowledge is in fact real knowledge, perhaps the only way in which we truly “know” others, and ourselves. Written in the form of a journal, a diary of encounters, shared moments, sensual discoveries, In a Man’s Time  is the story of a summer in which a man moves away from marriage to pursue his sexual  freedom, returning drawn by time and the changes within himself, “thick with light and joy,” to his wife, his children, to that married life in which  “the world spells out for us, letter by letter and bit by bit, the messages of what things mean and who we are.”

No man who has ever known the tension between the solidity  of loving one woman and the exultation of loving many can fail to recognize the truth and power of Marin’s experiences, to feel how he too has sought in women, and sometimes found, “this sense of grace, of deepening and vision.” Funny, warm, compassionate, deep, so frankly descriptive that it will surely shock some readers, In a Man’s Time is both an intellectual experience and an awakening, like the shock of recognition and awareness that came over one when one first read A. Alvarez’s The Savage God. Yet, in his vivid and moving description of friendships, loves, sexual encounters, Peter Marin manages to create in the reader a very special sense of joy,” “a sense of going in and down and then coming up whole, sweetened by pleasure and laughter,” which is the peculiar and special knowledge of those who have confronted their own sensuality without fear or false guilt and accepted it as the most precious of human gifts. In a Man’s Time is a major book by a writer whose previous work and reputation have made “this journeying through time and the senses” an eagerly awaited and triumphantly achieved event.

Boy Loves Girl is a phenomenon as old as human nature, but Boy Lives With Girl, sharing a common domicile without benefit of clergy, is something relatively new, particularly in off-campus college student housing in the United States. The author began his investigations into this matter while preparing an article for a popular national magazine. During the first group of unterviews, however, he discovered that the subject of student cohabitation was linked with a broad spectrum of vital issues of urgent concerm to parents, educators, university administrators and the religious community, asw ell as the general public.

Expanding his investigations, the author spent eighteen months interviewing 136 couples in fourteen colleges in five parts of the United States. He discovered that the couples involced represented all types in the college population, and that the reasons they chose to live together were as varied as the personaities themselves.

Among their reasons for living together, the students listed: the alienation of the student in the multi-versity atmosphere, the conflict of values and the difficulty of communication between students and their parents, the shift from traditional restraints to a more libertarian sex code,  the prohibitive cost of education and housing, a way out of the dating rat race," and a better situation for study.

In the body of the book, twelve couples tell their own stories - how they feel abot their parents, their new sexjual freedom, and the broad sociological impact of their actions. One girl reveals that she is merely tolerating the arrangement until her boyfried is ready to marry her. Another says she proposed the arrangement to a male acquaintance as a mutual act of social orotest and isntrument of change.

This book, with its balanced representation of the forces inherent in the college students' rapid  accommodation to the widespread pattern, serves a timely and valuable purpose. It siphons off the shock value of the material, thereby helping to prevent any prcipitous action. It serves as a guide and provides the basis for an orderly program fo further in-depth studies of student cohabitation by psychologists, sociologists, ministers, university guidance counselors, and administrators in colleges and universities across the nation.

In this masterful study, Herbert Richardson uncovers the psychological and historical forces behind today's sexual upheaval. He explores the varieties of human sexuality and interprets sexual behavior as bodily expression of inner spiritual states. Sexual evolution is seen to be a visible emblem of transformations in the human spirit.

This valuable discussion of how we are in and experience our sexual selves touches on:
* why sex and love are traditionally thought to be unreconcilable
* how war created patriarchy and agrressive sex
* whether witches cause impotence
* why only Americans engaged in petting
* what's wrong with seeking orgasm as the goal in sex
* how romantic marriage creates social revolution
* why heterosexuality is always bisexuality
* what is the function of virginity
