Please DO NOT judge this book its title or cover--we know it's cheesy, but this the book we wish The Ethical Slut was. This book includes a variety of models and personal narratives, which are helpful, but still encourages the reader to define their relationships in ways that work for them. Also a plus is its lack of heterocentrism.
