Then I started doing research and was shocked at how poly feelings are just what I was telling her how I felt. Open and honest relationships among and between adults. Sex as "cheating" does not fit.
I'm not having sex with anyone other than with my wife -- and she and I enjoy it at least once almost every day. Nor is there necessarily another particular woman I'm attracted to, although there have been some arousing moments that felt perfectly right.
Congratulations on the successful talk! Read, read, read and talk some more!

From what little I have been exposed to I think it holds some very valid and interesting historical insights though. Honestly, I am just not that into reading about this topic from any perspective. It's nothing personal against this book. I'm a history buff, but more of a pre gun powder warfare fan.
