Poly Web Rings and Indexes

Loving More Magazine
Loving More has a message board, for asking questions, seeking advice, sharing experiences. They also have a chat room. They are a good organization, and don't put you on any sleazy mailing lists. They have books available and a great magazine, that can be ordered online, and they send what you order right away. I highly recommend the magazine and some books: The Polyfidelity Primer, is a really good "What's this all about?" starting place. Breaking the Barriers to Desire, has a GREAT bibliography, including videos, Polyamory: The New Love Without Limits, great info, good for sharing with others Loving More does not carry, but I highly recommend: Open Marriage, by George and Nena O'Neill. - Resources listings
