Being Poly isn’t a life choice people make to enable them to have sex with multiple people.
Being Poly is admitting to yourself that you have the capacity to love and care for more than one partner, choosing to pursue multiple relationships, and doing your very best to see that each of those partners feel loved and fulfilled in the individual relationships you build with them.
Being Poly isn’t about exploring sex with multiple people.
Being Poly is about exploring love with multiple people
This! The proper term for rubbing bits together people who aren’t your partner is “swinging.” Or maybe “fucking around.” Or even, you know, “infidelity.”
Once you get it’s not all about sex, and sometimes it’s not about sex at all, you realize polyamory’s been around for a very long time.
Once you get it you realize that a lot more people are poly than most people imagined. Anddddd… also a lot fewer!
