Sinossi

Love is not one-size-fits-all. Yet often, people assume that all healthy or serious intimate relationships must follow same trajectory. Fortunately, there are plenty of options.

The “Relationship Escalator” is the bundle of social conventions for intimate relationships: monogamy, living together and much more, ideally until death do you part. If you wish to explore a different way of loving, it’s not always obvious what your options are, or where those paths might lead.

Many people have stepped off the Relationship Escalator, to live and love in uncommon ways. In 2013-14, journalist Amy Gahran surveyed 1500 people about their unconventional intimate relationships: how those relationships work, how they feel, and why these people stepped off the Escalator. Participants shared moving, in-depth personal stories and insights. Over 330 individuals are quoted directly in this book (with permission).

"Stepping Off the Relationship Escalator" explores how unconventional relationships might look and work differently from traditional relationships. Gahran identifies five main ways that intimate partners can step off the traditional Relationship Escalator.

Off the Escalator, intimate relationships might be:
- Nonmonogamous: Sexual/romantic nonexclusivity, with all-around informed consent. Polyamory, swinging, monogamish relationships and more.
- Highly autonomous: Partners choose to not live together or otherwise prioritize their individuality over couplehood.
- Egalitarian: Not defaulting to giving one partner, or romantic/sexual partners in general, top priority.
- Nonsexual: Asexual people, and others, enjoy deeply intimate, committed relationships that never include a sexual connection.
- Fluid or discontinuous: Sometimes intimacy is pause/play, or significantly shifts form, without a breakup or ending.

This book aims to foster awareness and acceptance of relationship choice; to empower people to speak up for what they might want and find more ways to let love flourish. To not assume that love must look a particular way for it to be valuable and meaningful. At a point in history when divisiveness can seem overwhelming, finding more ways to connect with love can help us sustaining each other through tense times.

This book is the first in a series. At least two more Off the Escalator books are currently in production:
- (2017) What’s It Like Off the Escalator? 10 Common Questions About Unconventional Relationships
- (2018) Off the Escalator, in the Closet: Navigating Stigma Against Unconventional Relationships

L'autore

Journalist Amy Gahran lives in Boulder, Colorado. Her journalism has appeared in CNN.com, Entrepreneur.com and many other venues, mostly covering energy, the environment, mobile technology and business. She worked closely for many years with the Society of Environmental Journalists. For the John S. And James L. Knight Foundation, she covered emerging local news media. And for the Poynter Institute, she covered the intersection of journalism and technology. Amy has also engaged in unconventional relationships since 2001. From 2012-15 she published the blog SoloPoly.net using the pen name Aggie Sez — which has since stuck as a nickname. She published that blog until 2015. One blog post, “Riding the Relationship Escalator, or Not?” (Nov. 29, 2012) attracted attention well beyond the poly community. This sparked the "Off the Escalator" publishing project, through which over 1500 individuals so far have shared their unconventional relationship experience. Amy speaks at conferences and events on unconventional relationships and other topics.
