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 the word being that show on SBS called Big Love about a Polygamy family. Not exactly my thing but certainly an interesting alternative lifestyle that obviously works for some just like Polyamory works for me.
Thanks to Gill S for mentioning this book 4 years ago. She started me on this journey and I will always be thankful for that 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 sexuality, intimacy and relationships not unlike one does when one travels. 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 world in which we live.
Because if one thing is for certain, marriage and “the standard narrative” as we were all well and truly institutionalised on is 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 path. 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.
