Half of Americans aren’t married—so it’s high time to step back and figure out what’s working and what’s broken about the way we live and love. Sex From Scratch: Rules for Relationships from People Who Make Their Own Rules will be a book of smart relationship advice from people who’ve spent their lives learning the ins-and-outs of queer, feminist, and nonmongamous relationships the hard way.
This book will come out in spring of 2014 thanks to Microcosm Publishing. It will be the product of a lot of fun research—I spent three months be traveling around the country interviewing sex and gender writers, as well as just regular people who have articulate insight on building nontraditional relationships. From people who’ve decided to never have children to people who know they’ll never be happy with just one partner, how do you make good decisions without relying on religion or tradition?
