Issue 27 - August 24th 2013: Monogamy is outdated, according to controversial BBC investigation | Consenting Adults | Scoop.it
Monogamy is outdated and “polyamorous” relationships, involving multiple partners, could become the new normal, according to a controversial BBC investigation.
Christopher Bowness's insight:

Of course this is a sensationalised headline. I don't think the point that monogamy is outdated and on it's way out, actually marriage and along with it monogamy are pretty new on the relationship timeline. I think it's more about acknowledging other forms of relationships that have been around for 1000's of years and that Consenting Adults can choose the relationships they want.

Why do so few of us understand that monogamy is indeed a choice?

Issue 2 - March 2nd 2013 11 works of Sexology that will blow your mind (with science) | Consenting Adults | Scoop.it

Sexology as a field is both science and social science — it encompasses rigorous biological studies of reproduction and sexual response, as well as psychology, sociology, and history.

Christopher Bowness's insight:

This is a great list of books many of which I own myself.

 

Ethical Slut is one of the greatest relationships books you'll ever read. Unfortunately because of the main theme of polyamory and connotations of the title many may be put off. However,  I can guarantee whatever your relationship setup is we can all learn something from it.
