Prior to ever knowing the term "poly" I was in an open relationship for four years.
I actually met my bf at work-at the same time as meeting his best friend.
Both were straight men and we regularly enjoyed time spent together with them sexually focusing on me.

In my current V-we have done the same between myself, Dh and Bf. However-I find that they are so different in how they operate in the bedroom-that I just get frustrated. So I put a stop to it.


But it certainly can work.

There are many many ways people get together and have workable polyamorous situations. Some like a poly tribe, some keep all relationships separate, and there are numerous variations in between. Some have group sex, some don't. There is no normal. There is no specific poly lifestyle. So, keep reading! One can't really say with any certainty that one type of configuration is more expected than any other.
