Yes, that's exactly the book I was alluding to.

It's interesting that it was written from basically a Christian perspective, but it's been embraced almost universally, including by the sex-positive, polyamory and even kink communities. There's something in there for everyone.

What is "sex-positive"? Someone who likes sex? Isn't that almost everyone?

All-encompassing term for those who are nonjudgmental about reduced-strings or no-strings sex.

That sounds like a whitewashed way of saying someone is promiscuous :)

It's really just about getting the shame out of sex, in a number of ways. Also works well as an umbrella term for a large number of distinct groups that don't necessarily agree on everything: the polyamorous, non-monogamists, swingers, queers, sex-workers, porn stars, Ren Faire attendees, kinksters, nudists... ;)


Promiscuity is part of it, but not the sum of it.

Well, in the US we still have all sorts of taboos associated with sex because we are a society that was founded by puritans. It damages a lot of things even in healthy monogamous relationships. And of course it makes the counterculture even weirder.

Taboos and hangups can make monogamy a more difficult proposition to sustain.
