Taormino is a progressive, sex positive relationship expert, writer and podcaster. This book provides clear descriptions of open relationships structures and styles, and pragmatic advice on how to create healthy relationships and have great sex. I think that this is important book because it is simple and straight forward. Many people "accidentally" find non-monogamy without guidance or accurate, ethical models for conducting relationships. Taormino writes about the basics. I have always been a "intellect before action" type of person, and I think really knowing what you are doing before you do it (or at least shortly thereafter) can avoid problems, pain and potential heartbreak. Love and sex are important parts of our lives-- I encourage you take some advice from some experts about loving more.
