    Book details

El nuevo libro de Lucia Etxebarria. Una investigacion en torno al fenomeno del poliamor y otros modelos de relacion que probablemente te haga replantearte muchos mitos sobre el amor romantico.

A tu alrededor conoces muchas parejas monogamas. Lo sabemos. Pero puede que conozcas tambien...

A personas que viven en pareja abierta, como Roja y su marido.

O que viven en trieja, en una relacion a tres, como Rosa, Piluca y Juan. O Sonia, Joaquim y Gero. O Arantxa, Chelo y Susana. O Guillermo, Enrico y Anko.

O en cuadreja, en una relacion a cuatro, como Uxia, Mer, Sabela y Lola.

O que participan en un circulo de polifidelidad, como Ruben.

O que viven en circulo pero sin el compromiso de fidelidad, como el grupo en el que vivio Yanara.

A hombres y mujeres celibes pero que mantienen una o varias relaciones de profundo amor y cuidado, como Carla.

A swingers, que organizan intercambios sexuales depareja pero sin implicarse emocionalmente, como Tomas y Raquel.

O a sesioneros y pajareros, que organizan sesiones de sexo en grupo, con drogas o sin ellas, como Ismael.

Quiza las conoces pero no lo sabes. Crees que son companeros de piso, o pareja monogama, o solteros en busca de su media naranja. Porque todas estas personas tienen dos cosas en comun: aman a mas de una persona a la vez y viven en un armario metaforico, en el que ocultan su sexualidad y sus afectos.

Todas estas personas han prestado su testimonio para el primer libro espanol que expone una investigacion seria y profundamente documentada sobre el fenomeno del poliamor, una palabra que esta de moda pero cuyo significado pocos conocen en profundidad. Y tambien sobre otras formas de organizar la vida sexual y afectiva en relaciones de no monogamia consensuada, vividas con honestidad.


The new book by Lucia Etxebarria. An investigation about the phenomenon of polyamory and other relationship models that will probably make you question many myths about romantic love.

You are surrounded by many monogamous couples. We know it. But you might also know people who live in open relationships, like Roja and her husband. Or who live in a three-way relationship, such as Rosa, Piluca, and Juan. Or Sonia, Joaquim, and Gero. Or Arantxa, Chelo, and Susana. Or Guillermo, Enrico, and Anko. Or in a foursome, such as Uxia, Mer, Sabela, and Lola. Or who participate in a polyfidelity circle, like Ruben. Or who live in such a circle but without the promise of fidelity, like the group that Yanara lived with. Or celibate men and women who nevertheless maintain one or several relationships of deep love and affection, like Carla does. Or swingers, who organize sexual exchanges without any emotional attachment, like Tomas and Raquel. Or who organize group sex sessions, with drugs or without, like Ismael.

Maybe you know these people but you don't know it. You believe they are roommates, or a monogamous couple, or single people in search of a soul mate. Because all of these people have two things in common: they love more than one person at a time, and they live in a metaphoric closet, in which they have to hide their sexuality and their affections. All of these people have lent their testimony for the first Spanish book to present a serious and deeply documented investigation about the phenomenon of polyamory, a word that is in vogue but whose meaning few people truly understand, and about other forms of organizing a sex- and love- life in non-monogamous consensual relationships, lived out honestly.

Review Text

  • By Kirill Degtyarenko on 17 April 2017

    According to the blurb, this is «el primer libro español que expone una investigación seria y profundamente documentada sobre el fenómeno del poliamor, una palabra que está de moda pero cuyo significado pocos conocen en profundidad» (“the first Spanish book that exposes a serious and profoundly documented research on the phenomenon of polyamory, a fashionable word whose meaning few know in depth”).It really must be very deep when you find both «profundidad» and «profundamente» in one sentence!Wary as I am of the word “research” (I am not sure if I even can use this word without quotation marks in this context), I got intrigued.In the first part of the book, «El hundimiento de las estructuras tradicionales» (“The collapse of traditional structures”), the author analyses “functional” and “fusional” models of relationships, debunks ten modern myths about romantic love, and embarks on her research on online dating. However flawed her approach may be (like, when she attempts to compare Tinder, Grindr and Wapa), it is fascinating.The second part, «Amar de otra manera» (“Other ways to love”), which mostly consists of interviews with people who live or lived various alternatives to monogamy (including, believe it or not, celibacy), is even more exciting. Etxebarria insists that she did not invent anything, however the names and locations, understandably, were changed. The chapter dedicated to triads («triejas») is probably the best, even though the editor was asking the author (unsuccessfully) to abridge it. Boring? No way. At least I wasn’t bored. Some of these “non-standard” relationships work well, some don’t. There’s no warranty that any of them will last forever. Just like is the case with monogamy. And, while the author does her best to remain judgement-free (why, she even knows some perfectly happy monogamous couples!), she does not make a secret that her ideal cup of tea is relationship anarchy.The book is written in lively, colloquial Spanish and won’t present much of a problem for intermediate-level readers. Sure enough, there are words that you are unlikely to find in your pocket dictionary — «gafapasta», «mariliendre», «putón», «raruno», «zorrón»... — but that’s all part of the fun.

    Great, easy reading about a variety of personal relationships. I found it very well structured and easy to understand with personal experiences as examples. I would recommend to anyone who is curious about how people can consider having a different approach when it comes to love or to anyone who wants to know more about this matter.
