October Update

Well, It’s been a pretty quiet couple of weeks but October I made sure I’d focus on my university work.

I did attend a very interesting talk about non monogamy by Dr Meg Barker, this can be found here.

Also, check out the new video on my Youtube Channel, DK Green talks about polyamory.

I do have a new date on the book tour, 10th of December Manchester Alt and Burlesque fair. More info about that can be found on the events page.

I am currently in talks organizing a solo exhibition at the beginning of next year, from this I am looking for more people to contribute to more interviews, video or audio especially and if you would like to be photographed please contact me

As usual you can buy the book directly from me, and I’d love to make some new friends at the events I attend 🙂

Dr Meg Barker

Most recently i was invited to a talk on non monogamy at Cambridge University by Dr Meg Barker.

With her kind permission she allowed me to record the lecture.

Here it is: Non Monogamy Talk

Rewriting the Rules

Meg Barker

We live in a time of great uncertainty about relationships. We search for The One, but find ourselves staying single because nobody measures up. We long for a happily-ever-after, but break-up after break-up leaves us bruised and confused. We find a partner, but the reality of the relationship is not what we expected, and it becomes hard to balance it with all the other things that we want out of life.

No wonder we look for rules about relationships to help us to make sense of it all. But which to choose from all the rules on offer? Do we stick to the old rules we learnt growing up, even though they don’t completely fit? Or do we try something new and risk being out on our own and regarded as a freak? And what about the times when the rules we love by seem to make things worse rather than better?

This book is a friendly guide through the complicated, and often contradictory, maze of romantic relationships, exploring the rules that are out there today and the advice that they give us about attraction and sex, commitment and conflict, and many other issues.

Dr. Meg Barker is a sexual and relationship therapist, researcher, and author of many books and articles on relationships and sexuality. She edits the journal Psychology & Sexuality, lectures on psychology and counselling, and is recognised as a world expert in her field.
