I’ve been invited to be a panel member for a discussion on masculinity within ethical non-monogamy at the Southwest Love Fest!!!

At last, a hypersexual perspective on ethical sexual relationships has been welcomed!

That makes at least two of the predictions that were made in the novel Hypersexual – now true!

In the prediction regarding my appearance as a Speaker, I wrote that hypersexuals would be and should be consulted about the sexually related issues that they may have intimate knowledge of, or even an extra intensive knowledge of. Non-monogamy is certainly one of those issues. And the ethics involved – which are likely to be tested – are also an issue that hypersexuals deal with nearly every day of their lives.

The other prediction that was made, and has come true, is that Hypersexuality – just as nymphomania, homosexuality, lesbianism and bisexuality before it – would eventually be removed from the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – which is the bible for all professional psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists. And indeed, barely one year after the novel Hypersexual was published, the 2017 DSM (5) removed Hypersexual Disorder from it’s list of mental disorders.

Of course, none of this surprises me. From a logical point-of-view of our current social environment, and from inside the daily experience of hypersexuality, each of these social evolution’s could be seen developing. In large part, because they needed to be developed. And in no small part, because the time has come.

Events like The Southwest Lovefest will help our culture to evolve our understandings of what is clearly and historically one the most complex and difficult issues of adult human relationships – namely, non-monogamy.
