Summary "Contemporary relationships are in a state of rapid evolution. These changes can and should empower people with the freedom to develop partnerships based on their personal sexualities, understandings, and agreements. Designer relationships may encompass: people who bond emotionally but not sexually; people who agree to be non-exclusive; single people who have occasional lovers or friends with benefits; multiple partner configurations where long-term bonds exist among all or some. In a designer relationship, decisions are made mutually, consciously, and deliberately for a common good"--Back cover.
