Throughout his public and private adventures, Franklin integrates his own experiences as well as those from the thousands of individuals and couples around the world who have shared their hard learned lessons with him. Franklin has started and expanded conversations on ethical non-monogamous relationships, how to navigate them and how to grow and expand love for yourself and others through them.
