New Radio Show: The Book of Polyamory – The Ethical Slut

Thanks so much to Radio 4 for including me in this awesome show about The Ethical Slut: The Book of Polyamory. Give it a listen to hear all about open non-monogamy and the history of The Ethical Slut in the polyamory movement and beyond.

As somebody who read the book first right after it was published, and again many times over the years, and as someone who has been involved in promoting the ideas in it – sometimes deliberately and sometimes less so, it was grand to be able to tell some of my stories and to talk about where I’ve got to with this stuff with the idea of relationship diversity.

This book was the inspiration for me writing Rewriting the Rules, and the blog posts, zines and books which have followed. I wanted to write a more European/British book on relationships which covered the diversity of ways of relating rather than focusing on polyamory, but also drawing upon the wisdom from openly non-monogamous movements, and other non-normative communities around sex, love, and gender.

You can listen to the show here:

The Book of Polyamory


Meg-John Barker is the author of a number of popular books on sex, gender, and relationships, including Queer: A Graphic History, How To Understand Your Gender, Enjoy Sex (How, When, and IF You Want To), Rewriting the Rules, The Psychology of Sex, and The Secrets of Enduring Love. They have also written a number of books for scholars and counsellors on these topics, drawing on their own research and therapeutic practice.
