"Sex isn't generally a driving factor".
Sorry my friend.. I have to disagree with you on this point. I've met a fair number of polyamorous people and sex is definitely a driving factor. Without sex you essentially have a deep relationship; which is quite possible in platonic situations.
Respectfully, I think this statement is delusional and avoiding one of the huge benefits of polyamorous relationships, which is experiencing, people in an emotional, spiritual and definitely sexual way. If it wasn't for the sexual aspect, we wouldn't need to call loving other people in this way by a distinct name.
I respect your view and aproach to polyamory, and hope I have not offended. If I have, I sincerely apologize.
