I don’t see much on this site regarding polyamory…
So, I’m going to try to fill that void a bit.
First question one should ask…What is polyamory?
It’s the Idea that you can have romantic feelings for more than one person at a time, including sexual relationships. Call those feelings what ever you like, love, fondness, sexual attraction, really really like…good friends. You like each other well enough to have sex at any rate.
The point is you don’t run out of what you feel, or out of the amount of sex you can share, it isn’t like milk or sugar. We’ve all been taught that you can only have one person that you care about and are sexual with at a time. Ever think to ask why? Spend a little time thinking about it… doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
The other aspect of polyamory that is important is that it is open. Meaning anyone you're involved with knows about every other person that you’re involved with. No lying, no cheating.
Any way I’ve rambled enough and will add more later.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

I guess that I have always had a little of the polyamory mindset but just did not know it, probably due to the heavy hand religious upbring. I was talking to one of my sisters and she thought that some of our siblings came close to that when she examined their relationship histories. We had envied their freedom & carefreeness. I truly doubt that is what the old man had in mind as he tried to ingrain the scriptures in our brains.|
