Eros2:50 Interview: Serena Anderlini-d’Onofrio
The ever-gracious Serena Anderlini-d’Onofrio agreed to an interview regarding Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves, her own personal memoir of her life as an Italian emigre experimenting with her budding bisexuality and polyamorous lifestyle. She shares her stories of becoming poly, of being rejected by lesbians when she found herself to be more bisexual; of coming out to her family and her daughter; of discovering threesomes and the joys of multipartner sex. Keep an eye out for her new project on “Gaia and the New Politics of Love,” a book more on poly theory.
