Free read º The Ethical Slut: A Guide to Infinite Sexual Possibilities Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ö The essential guide for singles and couples who want to explore polyamory in ways that are ethically and emotionally sustainable For anyone who has ever dreamed of love sex and coNd to define relationships on their own terms I couldn't stop reading it and I for one identify as an ethical slut This is a book for anyone interested in creating pleasure in their lives a complete guide to improving any style of relating from going steady to having an extended family of sexual friends Betty Dodson PhD author of Sex for One. This book is lauded as a sort of Poly Bible I don't know how I feel about that It's a little twee in parts but includes a whole lot of good information about how to communicate that can be used by everyone not just people looking to practice open or polyamorous relationshipsI do have a couple of bones to pick though I don't agree that anyone can do poly or open relationships Some people just don't have the psychological wherewithal and THAT'S OK And the book does actually say that if you don't want to that's ok It still has a sort of inference that you should want to but at least it does throw monogamous folks a bone I think that asking the wronged partner in a cheating situation to be mindful of the feelings of those who cheated on them is kind of weird I'm also highly skeptical that an open relationship founded on the basis of one partner already cheating can grow into a healthy relationship I'm sure it's not impossible I'm just highly skeptical Also I would not recommend introducing a monogamous partner to the concept of poly or open relationships by just giving them this book without prior conversation Really Like as not that's going to just get it thrown at your head I think you need to broach the subject first and ask beg or plead with your partner to read it Not just spring it on them Granted probably better than coming home and saying Guess what I already have another partner you need to adapt but stillI stress again that the book has a LOT to recommend it Excellent communication tips and advice to challenge views about sex and sexuality that you did not consciously form but were instead indoctrinated in you by societyparentschurch They also discuss being mindful of your partners's feelings and making sure you take the time to find out what makes them tick emotionally and sexually And while they do stress that this will be hard work I don't think they emphasize this enough and instead spend most of their energy telling you how AWESOME it will be when you are sexually open And granted part of that may just be my annoyance with the bulk of poly evangelists I've known IRL who annoy the piss out of me because they tend to leave a string of broken people behind them who wonder what's wrong with them that they can't do poly

Thical sluts Dossie Easton and Janet W Hardy dispel myths and cover all the skills necessary to maintain a successful and responsible polyamorous lifestyle from self reflection and honest communication to practicing safe sex and raising a family Individuals and their partners will learn how to discuss and honor boundaries resolve conflicts a. This is better than I thought it would be In part it’s a uasi history of sexual morality and attitudes through the ages; in part a psychology of desire especially how we justify certain biases about sex with compelling suggestions on how we might live pleasurable lives Epicurus not to mention his disciple Lucretius would have admired it greatly It’s also a great pep talk Get it while you can What interests me most is the sheer number of sexual viewpoints today and this book strives to honor all of them “While we are looking at sexual diversity let’s remember that we live in a multicultural society and that every culture in our world every subculture every ethnic culture has its own ways of creating relationship connecting in sex and building families All are valid and valuable” p43I like the positive worldview but I can think of plentiful examples that do not seem suboptimal Another problem is that the book makes some spectacular claims but doesn’t source them For instance “the Greek philosopher Aristotle is known to have enjoyed being ridden like a pony by his female acuaintances” I’d sure like to know where that came from No doubt there are classicists who do but I don’t and one reaches the saturation point when it comes to Googling everything So the book isn’t scholarly It’s a book of practical advice of lived experienceAnother thing it seems to me the authors are far too sunny about sex work Yes it would be wonderful if sex workers were viewed as say psychoanalysts are seen bringing healing expression to their clients Meanwhile look at sex trafficking and how it operates in 34 of the world See Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s Half The Sky Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide Don’t get me wrong the authors do seek to keep their readers streetwise They’re very good at warning sexual adventurers that being open about their polyamorous lifestyle might not be the best thing for their careers or families But in other respects with regard to sex workers say they seem pollyannas Especially here there’s an aspirational impulse underlying the text The authors don’t always see things as they are but as they Wish them to be To wit“Sexual healers could help free us from the terrors and inhibitions learned in a sex negative society and show us what amazing sexual geniuses we all might be Healing shame healing trauma the amazingness of sex beyond violation the power of fantasies So much is there for us to learn and grow sic Sex can be a powerful journey into healing in general goodness there are professionals who can teach us how” p 52Must finish
