Publisher Comments:

Relationship expert and bestselling author Tristan Taormino offers a bold new strategy for creating loving, lasting relationships. Drawing on in-depth interviews with over a hundred women and men, Opening Up explores the real-life benefits and challenges of all styles of open relationships — from partnered non-monogamy to solo polyamory. With her refreshingly down-to-earth style and sharp wit, Taormino offers solutions for making an open relationship work, including tips on dealing with jealousy, negotiating boundaries, finding community, parenting and time management. Opening Up will change the way you think about intimacy.

This book trumps the old stand-by for poly relationships, 'The Ethical Slut'. It has been so very helpful for me to read the chapters on jealousy and compersion to quell any negative emotions that come up in relationships. The break-down of jealousy into different concepts like insecurity, the need to be included, and fear of abandonment, along with ways to work with these negative emotions, has been life changing.

I think that if everyone read this book, even if they are not in an open relationship, we would be a much happier and free society.
