I was wondering how many people would be in a polyamorous relationship where there are 2 girls and 2 guys and it's not only accepted but encouraged for the 4 of you to swap partners and be sexually active together
Poly is an umbrella term for anything not monogamous and it comes in a variety of flavours. I'm in a poly relationship. I have my primary partner, my baby girl in a d/s relationship and a friends with benefits who I'm waiting for a reply right now if she wants sex or not (with the consent of my primary partner). Our rules are always: first and foremost my primary partner. The rest are basically casual friend with benefits and I have to let the girls know before hand. It's lots of work and communication.
No, no, and no. Sry y'all, but, if "polyamorous" is a possibility, then you just don't know what "amorous" even is. Amorous. Love. Crazy irrational heartrending aching omg can't-think-about-anything-else fuck-it-bet-it-all love. You've never had it.
Folks, there's a reason why Romeo and Juliet is Romeo and Juliet, and not Romeo and Juliet and Danny.
There's a reason why, even when there ARE "love triangles", they STILL aren't actually triangular.
There's a reason.
True love -- the kind that makes a whole heartbreaking life of failures worth it, with just one glance -- is strictly between 2 people. And it's intense, and it's scary.
"Polyamory" is one way to hide from that. It's a way to minimize emotional risk, by diversifying a portfolio. In other words, y'all scared. Scared of real love.
Why wouldn't u just have a bunch of one night stands instead?
polyamory is about loving more persons at the same time. I couldn't do that at all. Having multiple sexual relations at the same times seems more doable
but still pass for that
i was a second in a poly relationship for a couple months as a personal experience experiment. It was pretty awesome, but I couldn't get emotionally connected and she could feel it and needed it from a partner so we stopped.
