A Guide to Happy Monogamy, Positive Polyamory, and Optimistic Open Relationships - How to Create What Works for You
Contemporary relationships are in a state of rapid evolution. These changes can and should empower people with the freedom to develop partnerships based on their personal sexualities, understandings, and agreements.
Designer relationships may encompass: people who bond emotionally but not sexually; people who agree to be non-exclusive; single people who have occasional lovers or friends with benefits; multiple partner configurations where long-term bonds exist among all or some; partnerships in which people are kinky and that make room to explore kink. In a designer relationship, decisions are made mutually, consciously, and deliberately for a common good.
Best-selling authors and national relationship experts Patricia Johnson and Mark A. Michaels are exemplars of this life choice, and have studied polyamory for over 20 years. Designer Relationships explains exactly how you and your loved ones can design your own life of relationships that work best for your family and fulfil our needs.

This is a helpful book to get you started thinking about what kind of relationship you would like to have with your partner(s), but it’s very much a starter text. You’ll be left wanting more soon after you finish, and I suspect for people who are already in non-traditional or hierarchical relationships, there won’t be much here for you.
