9782020787475: Politique (English and French Edition)

Politics is about: a) a threesome; b) politics

Moshe loves Nana. But love can be difficult -- especially if you want to be kind. And Moshe and Nana want to be kind to someone else.

They want to be kind to their best friend, Anjali.

Politics explores crucial problems of sexual etiquette. What should the sleeping arrangements be in a menage-a-trois? Is it polite to read while two people have sex beside you? Is it permissible to be jealous?
