Default Polyfuckery?

I just read this article and am giggling to myself http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/culti...sk_a_domme.php

Polyfuckery? I thought that some people identify as poly who don't have any consideration for others feelings and in fact find them a burden. I am surprised in this article that there is a term for that, according to the author! I have been thinking that I am just on one end of a spectrum of the definition of polyamory and others are, well, at the other end... swingers often seem to have more concern for peoples feelings than some who identify as poly I have found in my travels.

Way back last year sometime, as noted on threads on here there was a debate as to the definition of poly. The conclusion seemed to of been that there was no definition but personal description of the word and how we identify in it... could it be that there is a branching off of words? It seems like it by this authors statements.

Actually, I've heard this word before. I've only heard it used for people who claim to be polyamorous, as a response to them, though. I've never heard someone say "Hey, I'm a polyfucker". So I can only assume it's a derogatory term for those people who use the word "polyamory" to get in someone else's pants, or as an excuse to cheat.

I think River and others have used the term "polyfuckery" on here before to describe people who claim to be poly just to make it seem like sleeping around is some kind of noble endeavor.

Can "polyfuckus" be used to describe the mess that polyfuckers get themselves into after polyfuckering around?

You have to feel bad for the clueless polyfuckered.

Two or more people can "make up" the same thing independently, and it would still be "original" to all of them.

"Polyfuckery" is not such a long leap that more than one person couldn't come up with it on their own.

Well, I intend to use this term as I think it rocks... no doubt I will get a hand slap, but fuck it... why not embrace it and say it as it is.... it works better than saying "you are in an open relationship" fuuuuuuck. No, you are a polyfucker heh.

I'm polyamorous AND I can be polyfuckerous. As long as everybody knows what's going on, folks are being honest and safe, and everybody's cool, I've found it's all good. :-)

Does it involve love? What would be the difference between sport and feeling love for many?
