Is Monogamy Dead?

Asset 2

Mixing standup and discussion, award-winning comedian, writer and broadcaster Rosie Wilby presents some of the surprising results of a survey she conducted as research for an Edinburgh Fringe show, ‘Is Monogamy Dead?’ which eventually became her first book.

She reveals how diverse our definitions of infidelity are and introduces ideas around emotional monogamy, suggesting that we’re all a bit more polyamorous than we admit. She calls for more language, such as the term ‘love affair friendship’, to describe the huge variety of connections that we experience and looks at the insights we gain about male and female behaviours by observing lesbians and gay men.
