Good heavens, never heard these distinctions before. Have to say, I don't like them, either.

Not to get all defensive, but "polyamory" sounds pretty general and nice to me. Is there some reason it's not considered "amory" once there's more than one guy involved? Too much testosterone?

Why wouldn't 2 females and 1 male have some special term (to parallel poly-andry and be specific), and polyamory be left for all of us to share?

Wiki has this: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/polyandry#English

Fwiw I'm in a scenario with 3 (or maybe 4) gay guys...fairly long term now...I've always called it polyamory and intend to continue as I like "owning" that word!...but is there something else you'd call it?

Namaste,
-A
