Books
Sacred Sexual Healing
by Kamala Devi
"This book is the most readable, down to earth book on tantra I've found! It's engaging and accessible for beginners and masters alike, and I highly recommend it! Kamala Devi was featured as the amazing tantra teacher in our episode of MTV True Life 'I'm Polyamorous.'"

Sacred Sexual Healing blows the bedroom doors off an underground Tantra revolution, exposing the work of the modern sexual healer and making available practical secrets. We offer dozens of exercises to help women re-discover their libido, relieve pain during intercourse and connect to their sexual intuition. Men will eliminate fear of intimacy, cure performance anxiety, and learn to sexually satisfy a woman. The intention of this book is to heal the greatest collective wound on the planet: the separation between sex and spirit!

The Polyamory Handbook
by Peter Benson
The Polyamory Handbook starts with describing what polyamory is, and is not; but nearly all of this book comprises a comprehensive guidebook about how to live this sometimes challenging but immensely satisfying and growthful lifestyle and lovestyle, smoothly, happily, successfully; and how to navigate any bumps in the road that you and your partners may encounter. The book also makes clear that polyamory is not for everyone; it does not try to "sell" polyamory to anyone.

Stranger in a Strange Land
by Robert A. Heinlein
This sci-fi novel written in 1961 depicted the idea of group households and line marriages in a positive, affirming way. This book acted as many people's introduction into polyamory, though not all modern polyamorists agree with its model.
