Oct. 7: Monogamy or Not, with Michael Dale Kimmel

Legal gay marriage is still a relatively new phenomenon. Gay men who are now able to get married sometimes find themselves in a bit of a quandary: for many male couples, sex is a lot more important than it is for heterosexuals. Two married men often have a stronger desire for sex – wanting more of it and with a wider variety of partners – than married opposite-sex couples. How does this work within the structure of a monogamous marriage? Is an open relationship a better structure for gay marriage? Assuming that gay marriages will emulate heterosexual marriages is neither a valid nor a helpful assumption. But, as gay men, where does that leave us?

Openly-gay psychotherapist Michael Dale Kimmel reads from and signs copies of his new book, “The Gay Man’s Guide to Open and Monogamous Marriage,” at Book Soup at 3 p.m. Book Soup is located at 8818 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood.
