The e-book examines colonial sexual technological know-how, monogamous voles, polyamory, and the paintings of Alison Bechdel and Audre Lorde to teach how difficult the lens in which human nature is noticeable as monogamous or nonmonogamous forces us to re-evaluate our investments in coupling and in disciplinary notions of organic bodies.
