The Threesome Handbook by Victoria Vantoch

Desire, it turns out, is a mysterious, mercurial beast that doesn’t abide by cultural prescriptions, personal loyalties, or even legal authority. When desire doesn’t conform to our cultural sensibilities, we can choose to repress it or confine ourselves to daydreams. We all still hold preconceived ideas about what relationships and sex should be like. And when our real sexual desires or relationships don’t match up with these images, it’s easy to feel ashamed or disappointed. Instead of wondering what’s wrong with you, consider what’s wrong with dominant ideals and abandon those that don’t work.
