Discover the differences and benefits of: Open, Swinging, Polygyny, Polyandry, Polyamory and resolve which love style(s) is best for you.

"While in my own book (Love's Not Color Blind) I talk about the lack of Black representation in polyamorous spaces, a lot of that comes down to a lack of diversity in polyamorous educational resources. Taylor Sparks addresses that lack of resources in a tangible way by creating a focused book full of real world tools for people to engage ethical non-monogamy in a meaningful way. This is a needed voice at a needed time." - Kevin A. Patterson, M.Ed., Author-Love's Not Color Blind

"The subject of polyamorous relationships is often complicated and the tools and tips the author has shared will definitely help you understand what polyamorous relationships are and will help them reveal something of deeper value and meaning in their relationships. It will also help readers create their own definition of how to achieve a healthy intimate relationship." Anthony Yelfonzia & Tanya Griffin

"This book is a wonderful and much needed catalyst for conversations and exploration for individuals and couples in the African American (Black) community about the possible variability in relationships. The book feels like the comfort we all love and need to sit down and discuss topics with love and support.  I respect and honor how the book is informative and not a pick this lifestyle narrative.  A must read for couples and individuals to make wise choices not emotional decisions."  Renelle E.
