What is it? What is it for? Who is it for?

Alchemies of Ecosexual Love: Transmissions from Gaia, Stage 1 is a journey that supports readers in deprogramming themselves from practicing love as mode of acquisition, competition, and conquest, as often promoted by modern cultures, to access again the natural gift that every being has to connect to other beings and to love in sustainable, symbiotic, and ecological ways.

The book is channeled through the voice of Gaia, the ancient goddess of the earth and the name given to one of the most courageous postmodern scientific hypotheses, the Gaia Hypothesis.

Bisexuality and Queer Theory: Intersections, Connections and Challenges

Prices and Available Formats

Available from Amazon.com

Best option: rental on Kindle, $ 11.85

What is sexuality? What does it mean to have a sexual identity or orientation? What is the relationship between sexuality as a knowledge construct, on one hand, and the often messy flows of desire and practices of love, on the other? How and why are some sexual, erotic, and intimate practices normalized and others marginalized?

Queer Theory has emerged in the West as one of the most provocative analytical tools in the humanities and social sciences. It scrutinizes identity and social structures that take heteronormativity for granted – that do not question the social construction of heterosexuality as normative in relation to its oppositional binary, homosexuality. At the same time, bisexuality is a practice, identity, and orientation that challenges the binary logic around which cultural notions of sexuality are organized. It is a portal to the imagination of a world of amorous expression beyond that divide.

This provocative collection presents bisexuality and queer theory as two parallel thought collectives that have made significant contributions to cultural discourses about sexual and amorous practices since the onset of the AIDS era, and explores the ideas that circulate in these thought collectives today. We learn much about the construction and experience of sexuality, and the power it still holds throughout the contemporary Western world to shape identities and practices. This volume challenges our understanding of what it means to be sexual, to have a sexual identity, and to practice the arts of loving.

Gaia and the New Politics of Love

Prices and Available Formats

Available! Amazon, all markets

$ 16.50 paper

$ 6.99 kindle

Gaia theory argues that the flora and fauna of the planet operate in a self-regulating web that keeps the world livable. According to the theory, humankind is the most powerful species in this web and also its biggest threat. This provocative book explores ways to minimize and ultimately eliminate this threat with love and intimacy. Dr. Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio has authored the first global ecology study based on an analysis of human health. Anderlini-D’Onofrio identifies her remedy within the context of Gaia theory, re-envisioning it as a more inclusive philosophy that positively impacts not only relationships, but world ecology under duress. The author links human sexuality to the global ecosystem, claiming that freedom from fear will stimulate a holistic health movement powerful enough to heal relationships and restore planetary balance.

Gaia and the New Politics of Love is bracing in its range, weaving together issues of human and global health; the relationship of politics, sexuality, and ecology; practices and styles of love; the changing roles of eroticism and gender in our lives; and polyamory, bisexuality, and the AIDS reappraisal movement.

Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves

Prices and Available Formats

Out of print! Will be out soon again in new editions, for English and Italian!

This poignant memoir that explores the evolution of erotic love through the international and transcultural journeys of an extraordinary woman. This captivating book chronicles the life of polyamorous advocate and postmodern nomad Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio, whose skillful prose takes readers along the bold twists and turns of her life, and her irreverent critiques of society, education, and sexuality.

In Eros, Anderlini-D’Onofrio describes her formative years in the politically charged Italy of the 1960s and 1970 as well as her development as an independent woman and single mother in America. From her educational beginnings to her love of nudity and freedom from bodily inhibitions, the author reveals her innermost thoughts and shares the wisdom life has blessed her with. She candidly narrates both her journey over the treacherous path from graduate student to educator in California, and from a straight and monogamous young adulthood to an alternative and fulfilling lifestyle.

An extraordinary read for those who want to expand their horizons, Eros is an engaging and honest testimony of a passage into unconventional realms of growth, self-discovery, the erotic, and the many possibilities for love. Follow the emergence of this exceptional woman who’s made a career of defying convention for the sake of integrity–a woman well worth getting to know!

The ‘Weak’ Subject: On Modernity, Eros, and Women’s Playwriting

Prices and Available Formats

Out of print! We have the rights and plan a new edition. We are looking for volunteers. Let us know if you’d like to help out. This book has also been published in Italian translation.

Focusing on the work of twentieth-century American and European women playwrights, this book recuperates for feminism the notions of realism and mimesis, and proposes new readings of modern women’s plays. It claims that modern women playwrights establish a new form of mimesis. Drawing on theories of French feminist Luce Irigaray, the author calls this dramatic structure “labial mimesis,” marks its difference from the traditional structure based on a male hero, and emphasizes its hospitality to the representation of trust, love, friendship and erotic intimacy among women. She offers a fresh perspective in the lively debate about the viability of realism for feminist writing.

The author’s understanding of feminist realism proceeds from her ethical/political model of the “weak” subject and from her superb delineation of the figure of two-in-one. The desires and interrelatedness of this central pair of female characters are the focus of many women’s plays. The “Weak” Subject proposes a subtle exploration of the erotic energy and creative intelligence that circulate among female writers, producers, actors, and characters, which complements those found in Tina Chanter’s “Ethics of Eros,” Laura Doan’s “The Lesbian Postmodern,” and Terry Castle’s “The Apparitional Lesbian.”

In delineating the possiblity of a bisexual eros that is both feminist and feminine, the author moves the cultural dialogue between the United States and Europe toward a higher awareness of how erotic energy organizes visual, dramatic and narrative representations.

The authors’s own intercultural situatedness, her impressive body of research, and her theoreticl positions lead to a highly compelling new understanding of female subjectivity and sexual agency, and open new horizons in the debates on gender, performativity, democracy, and civil society in the post-Cold war era.
