I Am Interested In Polyamory

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,137 People

    I've written an experience in this group before,

    but things have changed somewhat since then. My wife goes back and forth with her support of my polyamorous desires, most of which simply involve couplings to engage in BDSM play, without intercourse in my case. I used to think that maybe we just weren't compatible in that...

    New But Happy - Polyamory

    My husband and I are new to polyamory. We are confident in our choice. This has only happened over the past three months, so it is just the two of us, but hopefully not forever. My husband will be leaving Colorado to go to school in Arizona. I am a stay at home mum currently. I...

    I find I may be polyamorous "in some

    ways"--that is if I compare my definition and hopes for it with my currently, possibly flawed perception of the poly lifestyle. I believe that there are as many normal, dishonest, trustworthy, damaged and healing people in polyamory as there are in the rest of the monogamous...

    I have been in a loving relationship

    for the past 18 months with a great girl and things are mostly great. I say "mostly" because the only thing getting in the way is my lack of appetite for sex. She is highly sexual and often fantasizes of being with another girl and every few nights will dream of being involved...

    It seems selfish to limit yourself to one love,

    and yet for the sake of the nuclear family we do. A man who is a poly amorous person is smiled at. A woman, frowned on and called names, even shunned! Go figure.

    when one of the partners only has one. I only have one and I'm looking for an additional person to love.
