What People Are Saying:

“This is the book you want to read if you’re looking for a voice that is balanced, sensitive and sensible when tackling the thorny question of sexual boundaries in love relationships. Opening Up is sure to open up your mind.”—Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence

“Taormino cuts through all the utopian theory and gets down to what people really need: the nuts and bolts of how open relationships work. I want to give Opening Up to everyone I know who asks, ‘How do you do it?’”—Susie Bright

“A luscious smorgasbord of nonmonogamy as opportunities for breaking free of the one-way model of sex and love that so many of us have blindly absorbed. Taormino’s discussion is remarkably nuanced and balanced—and encourages readers to proceed with their eyes wide open.”—Jack Morin, PhD, author of The Erotic Mind

“Courageous, stunningly thorough and inspiring. If you need a pathfinding guide for evolving your relationships, this is it.”—Daphne Rose Kingma, author of The Future of Love

“Bold advice for explorers of open relationships. This book is one of the best to come along in a long time!”—Deborah Anapol, Ph.D., author of Polyamory: The New Love Without Limits

“Superbly informative, sympathetic and literate.”—Dr. Gloria Brame, author of Different Loving

Opening Up is really incredible. it’s a revolution between the covers, truly. Taormino has hit the next level with this book, and I’m really proud to recommend it.”—Violet Blue

“The reviews are in and this book is landmark. Not only is Tristan’s writing accessible and relevant to people considering exploring polyamory but it’s also great for folks who’ve been living it. She includes so many helpful tips and resources in this book—it’s bound to be a reference for anybody considering opening their relationship.”—Good Vibrations

“Opening Up is the longest and most substantial of the three [new books on polyamory that just came out]. She covers a huge amount of ground…A message that comes through is that there’s not even one set of right ways to do this.”—Polyamory in the News

“This is absolutely the best book on open relationships or polyamory I’ve read (and I’ve read quite a few; check the “polyamory” tag in my catalog)… This is the book that you should read if you are considering any form of nonmonogamy, and it is also the book you should give to anyone who needs help understanding your relationship choices.”—Sweet Bee, Library Thing

“To every person who has questioned monogamy, I’d love to give a copy of Tristan Taormino’s excellent new book Opening Up…She gives solid advice on how to handle the realities of open relationships…A book as informative and reassuring as this one cannot be allowed to sit on my shelf. I’m handing it around my circle of non-monogamous friends with strict instructions to read it, learn from it…and then pass it on.”—Jane’s Guide
