You have found a great place to learn more. Read for a while. I have been exploring this site for several days now and have learned quite a lot about what polyamory means to different people, and also about myself. Have fun!

Check out the definitions thread on this board. That'll provide a quick look at a bunch of different concepts.

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.

Ya, if you look around you will soon see that this isn't a site for soliciting sex.

"Open" is the opposite of closed. Its a very basic term used for couples who mutually decide they want to look outside their traditionally closed relationships for sex and companionship. "Polyamory" is about having many loves. Of course that includes sex also, but the basis is love first and developing a relationship with oneself and others around what that means.

As others have said, do some reading on here and see what you think. If you can't find what you need, do a search with key words or through tags and go from there. Generally speaking we are all happy to answer your questions.

Sorry, I am confused. Didn't I just say that its more than just sex? I don't want to seem rude, but I don't get what you are not getting.

Well, here's one thing that just about everyone agrees on; communication skills are very important in poly- relationships.
