characters The Ethical Slut: A Guide to Infinite Sexual Possibilities 107 The essential guide for singles and couples who want to explore polyamory in ways that are ethically and emotionally sustainable For anyone who has ever dreamed of love sex and companionship beyond the limits of traditional monogamy this groundbreaking guide navigates the infinite possibilities that open relationships can offer Experienced e. Before I write my review I want to say something I don t normally read psycho babble self help relationship help type books Maybe it s because I ve been in therapy since I was a teen maybe it s because I regularly read psychology and medical texts maybe it s because I have an immediately visceral and negative reaction to the idea of trying to change another person This is probably due to the fact that people have been trying to change me for so long convince me mental health issues are figmentss of my imagination fallacies I can overcome by strength of willAnd too often self help books and relationship manuals rely on what I perceive as the negative perpetuation of the idea that one can improve serious issues like depression bipolar dissociative personality disorders PTSD and other serious mental health issues through happy thoughts and positive thinking and spiritual energies and other hoo haMost relationship help books also tend to tilt too far in one direction or the other Here s how to change himher you can t change another person it s an exercise in futility and only hurts everyone involved or alternatively and supposedly realistically You can t change them so accept them faults and all and love them as they are Live with itBoth of those tactics are depressing and horrific and probably help attribute to the high divorce rate as neither of those tactics are in any way conductive to honest communicationWhich is why The Ethical Slut is so freaking awesome The authors are proponents of polyamory or open relationships that s true But the basic tenants of communication and how to strengthen a core relationship the little exercises for opening up the lines of discussion between a couple everything in this book is invaluable I loved the concept of agreements rather than rules it s so easy for someone to say This is a rule and we think of something strict and unbreakable and feel boxed in and itchy and even if we often don t admit it angry and wanting to break it Rules beg to be broken But agreements sound so flexible so easy and negotiable As my husband pointed out when I discussed this with him they have safety rules at his place of work and they get broken all the time which irritates the crap out of him as a forklift driver But they also have employee agreements which are re negotiated every two years with employee input And I can see how that parallels so easily It makes senseAnother thing the authors discussed was arguing obviously all couples argue Everybody argues We have to argue it s how we hash out the difficult issues paying bills and visiting inlaws and everything big and little that we disagree on The authors introduced two new concepts to me Scheduling fights and the win win ideaI d heard of scheduling sex I m pretty sure that anyone married than 3 years and definitely anyone with a kid has been introduced to the concept of scheduling sex At first it sounds weird but then you get used to the idea and then it makes perfect sense There s still spontaneous sex yeah but there s also scheduled sexWell the authors discussed how scheduling fights and learning how to fight constructively letting each person have uninterrupted time to air their feelings practicing fighting over small issues using a timer learning to walk away and calm down for 10 to 15 minutes when things got too heated can strengthen a relationship The concept of a win win is brilliant too It s basically compromise but I love how they phrased it because we all go into an argument wanting to win It s how we re wired we want to make our point and we want to win and once we do it ll be done because we ve won rightExcept it s not done just because we ve won because somebody s lost and a loser is never happy They re still angry and mulling over their loss and what happened and one day that same damn argument will swell up and bite you in the ass even though the winner thought it was over and done and behind them they won so it was done rightThat s where win win compromise agreements come in If everyone feels like they ve won then there are no losers and the argument is truly over It won t come back to bite anybody in the ass But only if you ve hashed out a compromise that s truly a win win for everybody something that everyone is happy with and can live withAnd all these things seem so self evident so Well duh I knew that They re the type of things that when you read them you re nodding and laughing and going Yeah I totally get that and making little notes in the margins and underlining phrases and entire paragraphs Because even though in some part of your brain you knew that and you totally understood how that worked you couldn t uite figure out how to phrase it in just the right wayI swear this book is a must have for everybody in a relationship or anybody who wants to be in a relationship It s awesome It doesn t matter if you re in a monogamous relationship an open relationship or curious about an open relationship It s great for anyone seriously Read it
