    " the profiles illustrate the range of "open relationships" (why are there more women with two husbands in the midwest than anywhere else?). good basic relationship advice proffered. "

    " Well done and very thorough. As a practical guide it covers all the basics. Although its not exciting in the same way as ethical slut was and it has quite a large BDSM focus, it has a lot if very practical advice that I haven't seen in other books. "
