Well, they can be. They don't have to be.
I believe there are folks on this board for whom there is a "hinge" and two "arms" and that's it - it's a "closed" or "poly-fi" vee. A vee can be open as well. The open/closed nature of the relationship isn't dependent on its structure.

Sure, but the thing about absolutes is that one piece of evidence to the contrary throws the whole statement out the window. Yes, many people in poly relationships are bi- or pan-sexual, but many aren't. Same as in monogamous relationships.
