“While open relationships are hardly new, the cultural narrative that allows us to have a benchmark about what’s acceptable in them and the social support to help us with reality checks when it is bad simply don’t exist yet. We see jealousy as an aberration rather than a signal that something might be wrong. Goodness knows poly people can be notoriously crap at boundaries until we’re burned a few times. I have to blame the monogamy narrative for that little gem of an idea, though. Ever seen a romantic movie or read a romance where the lovers had good boundaries? Nope, me neither.” – Foreword by Noel Lynne Figart, The Husband Swap

Okay, time for a couple of poly recs. I found both of these books as free edownloads from the other day and wanted to share.
