A look at how people are giving themselves a choice to love another way.

More people than ever are exploring the possibility of opening up their relationships — and not only that, they are fighting for their legal rights to love however and whomever they choose. In Polyamorous, reporter Jenny Yuen digs into how polyamory affects underrepresented communities, why these unions are becoming more normalized, and how relationships with multiple partners can be a practical alternative to monogamy and an intriguing expedition through uncharted emotional territory. Pairing off is no longer the default option for many. For some, polyamory is just a part of who they are.

Reviews:

Jenny Yuen covers polyamory from underrepresented lenses in a way very few books and media resources care to do. The book goes to great lengths to provide diverse experiences and cover polyamory from angles both good and bad, the political and personal. Yuen shares her own experiences fearlessly and treats her subjects with the same loving non-judgement.
— — Gaby Dunn, writer, actor, and comedian

This is a deep dive into polyamory as it intersects with human biology and mating, the legal system, demographics, and the stories of people who are exploring their freedom to love in non-traditional relationships formations. It’s the raw truth about non-monogamous bonding. But most importantly, it’s simply about personal choice. If you’re ready to set your heart free, without shame and guilt, then you’re holding just the book to illuminate your relationship path to more love.
— — Wendy-O Matik, author of Redefining Our Relationships: Guidelines for Responsible Open Relations

There's a lot of resources available for people who want to study polyamory. In my opinion the best are the ones where people just tell you about their journeys. Jenny Yuen does a great job capturing both useful information and personal accounts to make Polyamorous a strong addition to any library.
— Kevin Patterson, curator of Poly Role Models and author of Love's Not Color Blind

With clear-headed insight and wit, Jenny Yuen delves deep into the often misunderstood world of polyamory and shines light on modern relationships in the process. At a time when everyone seems to be looking for new answers to old problems, this book isn’t just a propulsive and fascinating read – it’s completely necessary.
— Simone Paget, Toronto Sun ‘Sex Files’ columnist
