Dec./Jan. Book Announcement

09Nov09

Voting for the next book club selection has closed and the winner The Ethical Slut.

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 ethical sluts Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy dispel myths and cover all the skills necessary to maintain a successful and responsible polyamorous lifestyle–from self-reflection and honest communication to practicing safe sex and raising a family. Individuals and their partners will learn how to discuss and honor boundaries, resolve conflicts, and to define relationships on their own terms. (From Goodreads)

There are two editions for this book (and the second has two titles depending on where you look for it). The first edition is The Ethical Slut: A Guide to Infinite Sexual Possibilities by Dossie Easton and Catherine A. Liszt. The second edition is The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy, although I’ve also seen it listed as Ethical Slut: A Roadmap for Relationship Pioneers (particularly on UK sites).

For the book club, we will officially be reading The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy. However, if all you can get your hands on is the first edition, please do get that copy and follow along. It’s my understanding that the second edition has more resources and exercises, so I don’t think it will greatly affect the reading and discussion experience. (If anybody has read both editions and thinks otherwise, please let us know in the comments.)

So head on out to your libraries and bookstores to pick up a copy. Discussion will start in December and continue through January.

    Hi — one of the “Ethical Slut” authors here (your announcement popped up in my Google Announcements).

    While one major difference between the first and second editions is the addition of exercises for the reader, there are also significant differences of structure and content that could be confusing to your group if you’re trying to discuss both editions simultaneously. The book’s been rearranged, new chapters added, some material deleted, etc. I’d strongly recommend trying to find the new edition, which shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Best regards,
    Janet W. Hardy
