Reproduction, Mary Hutchinson, E. McKnight Kauffer and Marion Dorn
When Kauffer and Dorn temporarily split in 1936, their tight-knit community helped sustain them. The time apart reaffirmed their love. Romantic and emotional intimacy, within and outside marital ties, was common among their friends. Mary Hutchinson became a close confidant, as did Aldous and Maria Huxley, the three of whom maintained a love affair in the 1920s. Among Kauffer and Dorn’s set, sexual fluidity was part of modern life.
