Updated July 2019.
The day I opened The Ethical Slut and started reading things just started making sense. Up until that point I had never heard of Polyamory with the closest I had come to a word like it being that show on SBS that aired many years ago called Big Love about a Polygamous family.
I watched a few episodes of it deciding that it wasnt my thing but certainly was an interesting alternative lifestyle that obviously works for some just like Polyamory would work in theory for me.
BTW, thanks to GS for mentioning this book 4 years ago. She started me on this journey and I will always be thankful for that reading recommendation.
Since then I have taken baby steps trying to find like minded people who were free of mind enough to open their blinkers in regards to relationships, sexuality and intimacy.
It hasn’t been easy but life wasn’t meant to be easy as most know.
Thanks also to Susan who put me onto Meetup which has helped me realise a dream in being able to spread the word about Polyamory in this ever-changing internetz world in which we live.
For me, if one thing is for certain, marriage and “the standard narrative” as defined in Sex at Dawn (as we were all well and truly institutionalised into) is clearly not the end game for everyone.
That is why I urge you to pick up this book. At the very least it will make you think and question what you may consider to be the only relationship path.
It did just that for me and I am never looking back.
Anyway, that’s enough as an opening post. Stay tuned for further posts and all sorts of link goodness as time goes by.
