My favorite book on opening your relationship with yourself and others

Before reading "Building Open Relationships," I felt the most practical guide to designing open and polyamorous relationships is a book I would no longer recommend (or name) due to the actions of one of its authors. If you know, you know.

Well, I am glad to say I can forget all about that book now because Dr. Liz Powell has written the most practical guide for people or couples looking to have fulfilling, positive open relationships built on communication and consent.

It's not unusual for books like this to include personal anecdotes as Dr. Powell does, but what I found most useful were the questions Dr. Powell poses to get you to think about what really matters to you, and build a personal framework for your current and/or future relationships. I found their approach to this book exceedingly practical, and I have gone back to it several times when I have a specific question or concern that I know was addressed within.

I would also argue that this is the most inclusive book on open relationships developed yet. The author is non-binary and the book is inclusive of all kinds of relationships that previous books on open relationships may not have considered.

If I had to recommend anyone starting out with open relationships two books, it would be this and Polysecure. If you've already read the latter, then it is time to give this book a read through.
