There have been enough folk who have asked for things to read regarding ethical non-monogamy that I figure it’s worth keeping a living bibliography here. Suggestions are always very welcome, as I know there’s a lot out there that I haven’t included! Please feel free to email me or comment on this post if there’s something – a website, article, book or other media – that you think is a particularly salient addition to the list.
