Jenny Block and "Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage" on Mike and Juliet

I think things went pretty well on the Morning Show with Mike and Juliet today. Click the show name to see the clip. And be sure to let me know what you think!


  1. You did good, but you were walking into a wolf den, and I think you could have used the 1 minute or so they allowed you better: to get some paradigm-breaking key concepts onto the floor, knowing the old-paradigm stuff they were about to hit you with. And knowing that on these things, you might not be allowed a word of rebuttal.

    See the ongoing discussions about the show at Joreth's journal and Anita Wagner's Practical Polyamory blog.

    Looking forward to meeting you at at Poly Pride Weekend!

  2. Hi Jenny,

    I love that you remained cheerful and positive throughout their questions. As if you have to be ashamed of having a daughter and presenting her with other options than a monogamous marriage. As if you would have the conversation with her as she walks down the isle. Why are people so threatened by people living their lives outside of the norm?
    Props to you for writing this book and going on these shows like Mike and Juliet and Tyra. People need to know they have choices about their relationship. And although people are turning their head in disgust (did you read the comments on Tyra's website?), there are also people who will being to explore alternatives to monogamy. Thanks for being a voice for non-monogamy.


  3. My wife and I are non-mono and it works wonderfully. I understand though how some might be fearful of the concept. My first wife and I tried but her mind was not ready for the power of this lifestyle. It might have broken my first marriage but it has created a special bond within the second.

    She and I thank you for your voice.

    I would not give this lifestyle up since it would be denying my wife and I, parts of ourselves which we both share and enjoy. She and I are both bi!
