Relationship Anarchy

Infinite Relationships; Relationships without borders or boundaries, love without limits, without ends 

by entarchy distro

This is a re-made version of the older zine, “Infinite Relationships”, about open relationships/polyamory. The older version that’s online ended up looking worn and photocopied, so I typed up the text, created a new layout, added some resources for further reading, explained where the zine originated, and made a new front and back cover. Enjoy, distribute, and discuss with your communities!

Infinite Relationships (the old format)

Relationships without bounds or boundaries, love without limits, without ends.

Playing with Fire

Anarchist ideas are not dead things, to be viewed as a logical conclusion of certain ideas of justice, equality or “humanity.” There is no logical series, no precise and irrefutable argument that must convince a rational person. It is a certain relation to power, a certain disgust at authority and its pretensions, a certain sensitivity to the coercions of daily life that inform and inspire these explorations. That to a degree one must want to be anarchist, look toward revolt, have a desire to act and a feel for the immediate, a will for domination to not merely be resented but actively opposed—toward an eradication of guilt and other emotional forms of social control. That without these inclinations no logic would suffice to convince anybody, and that even if it did, enough belief in certain abstract ideas remains nothing but abstract as long as one does not engage with those other ideas through all parts of her awareness, in every aspect of her life, in defiance of the fear that is the final wall protecting society from all our passions, all our charged will.

Lauren Berlant and Lee Edelman – Sex, or the Unbearable

Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy – The Ethical Slut A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures

Sex, or the Unbearable is a dialogue between Lauren Berlant and Lee Edelman, two of our leading theorists of sexuality, politics, and culture. In juxtaposing sex and the unbearable they don’t propose that sex is unbearable, only that it unleashes unbearable contradictions that we nonetheless struggle to bear. In Berlant and Edelman’s exchange, those terms invoke disturbances produced in encounters with others, ourselves, and the world, disturbances that tap into threats induced by fears of loss or rupture as well as by our hopes for repair.

Through virtuoso interpretations of works of cinema, photography, critical theory, and literature, including Lydia Davis’s story “Break It Down” (reprinted in full here), Berlant and Edelman explore what it means to live with negativity, with those divisions that may be irreparable. Together, they consider how such negativity affects politics, theory, and intimately felt encounters. But where their critical approaches differ, neither hesitates to voice disagreement. Their very discussion—punctuated with moments of frustration, misconstruction, anxiety, aggression, recognition, exhilaration, and inspiration—enacts both the difficulty and the potential of encounter, the subject of this unusual exchange between two eminent critics and close friends.

LETTERS TO NORA DECEMBER, 1909 by James Joyce

1909. James Joyce lives in Trieste (Italy) with his family. End of October, he leaves alone for Dublin on a business trip, and stays there until the end of December. He makes a pact with his wife to write to each other erotic letters. The letters of his wife disappeared, but the ones he wrote were published in a now long out-of-print collection in 1975 – and, at the behest of Joyce’s surviving family, were never printed again. The transcriptions of these letters are taken from Richard Ellmann, Selected Letters of James Joyce, Introduction, Faber & Faber, London, 1975.

Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy – The New Topping Book

This updated edition includes all of the excellent material covered in the book’s first publishing, but adds new information (ie about meeting people online and general info about the BDSM community has changed since the book’s first printing). The authors speak of ‘ritual’ in SM. They devote a whole chapter to ‘spiritual SM,’ describing ways to incorporate ritual into your scene.

Another important point they discuss is ‘shadow play,’ which is doing a scene that may entail major emotional risk. They discuss ways to do this kind of play, how to do them and end them safely, and what to do if something goes wrong. In fact another major point the authors discuss early on is what to do when something goes wrong in a scene, and how to handle this, or when either partner ‘crashes’ or has ‘guilt feelings’ about the play right after doing it, or even a day or several days later. This also goes for after care, for even when a scene goes great, one or both participants may want or need this.

Like the original edition, there are chapters featuring topics Rights and Responsibilities of a Top (almost a ‘Bill of Rights’), Learning to Play, Ethics, even where and how to meet others, be it at a munch, play party, or SM group event.

Transcending Anatomy #1 A Guide to Bodies and Sexuality for Partners of Trans People

Transcending Anatomy is a guide to help partners of trans people navigate bodies and sex. It starts by unpacking some common assumptions, then goes through strategies for understanding your partner’s body, what language to use, and what feels good for them. It also also talks about getting comfortable with physical contact, dealing with dysphoria, and creative ways to work within limits. It won’t tell you what to say and do during sex, or what your partner wants – instead, think of this as a starting point for challenging your own assumptions and talking about this stuff.
