Why are gay men challenged by monogamy? Does it stem from internalized homophobia? A natural propensity for promiscuity? The effect of parental neglect? Low self-esteem? The availability of too many locations for sex? Maybe all of the the above and even more? In Boy Crazy, the author addresses not only these questions but the idea of monogamy itself. Why is monogamy at the top of the list of expectations for a relationship? Who decided that monogamy was the cornerstone of a successful, healthy relationship, and why? Using examples from nature, history, therapists and healthcare providers, and a range of everyday men, Shelton explores the concept of monogamy - whether or not it is even necessary and what makes it particularly difficult for members of the gay male community. A clear proponent of open relationships, Shelton offers advice on how best to conduct an open relationship, as well as an exploration of the different kinds of open relationships, what makes them work and what definitely doesnt. In addition, he discusses an array of sexual dysfunctions and possible solutions ranging from therapy to medication. This is the first book to use cutting-edge sexual and neurological research to examine this topic.
