Default There's a name and a community built around how I feel!

Until a week ago, I had no idea of the concept or name of "polyamory". But following my intuition and logic I had a discussion with my husband of 3 years about the concepts of being able to intimately love more than one person at a time, and how I felt I had the ability to manage that kind of relationship with openness, integrity and honesty. He (thankfully) agreed, and later our flatmate told us the name of what we were describing.

And that eventually led me here.

Amazingly the openness of that conversation with my husband has done wonders for our personal sex life. It's like, finally being able to be completely honest with him has opened up new ways for me to love him more deeply. Which in itself is so exciting! Who knows when we'll actually be actively practising polyamory, but I'm excited about where this openness will take us.

Welcome aboard.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
