POLYSEXUALITY is an amazing book. It may take a decade or two for Ed Christian's ideas to catch on, but I fully believe that eventually, his work will be considered as groundbreaking and important as the work of Freud and Alfred Kinsey. It makes us see sex and sexuality in a new way. It will lead to a paradigm shift. Unfortunately, I suspect that a lot of marriage therapists will NOT like the book. Why? They tend to be, nearly by definition, pro-marriage in a very conservative sense. Any idea that questions traditional marriage threatens them. Eventually, they will see that Christian's ideas are not really a threat, but more of a tool, a valuable way of making sense of people's actions.

Really, the idea of polysexuality seems so simple and obvious that the amazing thing is that it's new. In brief, some people are never going to have affairs because they are genetically monosexual and uninterested in straying. Others, who are genetically polysexual, are inevitably going to be drawn toward having other sexual partners at least a little bit, even if they never go through with it. They aren't sick, any more than left-handers are sick. They are just different that way. Some polysexuals are only weakly polysexual, and they may be able to say no to most temptation to play around. Some are so strongly polysexual that only with the greatest difficulty can they say no if an opportunity arises. Now, we need psychologists to put together a little test that people doing pre-marriage counseling can give, so they can tell the young lovers if their partners are likely to play around. Or maybe monosexuals should only marry monosexuals.
