Thoughts on PolyamoryIt seems to me that most people think of polyamory in terms of threesomes, of swinging. A way of sleeping around that isn't technically "cheating." A prevailing idea in the '60s counterculture was free love. Most people thought they were free, expressing an interchange of love with multiple partners. But it wasn't. It was slutting around without consequences. But at least everyone was equal, and diverging from the old way. In my mind, polyamory isn't openly getting with as many people as you want at a time.Thoughts on Polyamory2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

More Thoughts on PolyamoryPolyamory is very difficult in practice. On paper it makes sense, the theory is good. But to behave in this way is unbelievably frightening to some people. Most people? Maybe it's me, maybe it's the way I go about friendships.

How these, the subjects of my amory,
With such diverse delights my heart enthrall;
Comparison is but a frippery.

Yet to those who assume the maths of love
Can only ever deal in binary,
One person must be ever deemed enough.
But love itself is made of finer stuff
Which weaves it's changing pattern as it will.
It's threads can bear the good times and the rough;
As we add more, it will be stronger still
And such will be the nature of our weft
We will not ever feel ourselves bereft.

I guess I will begin with this: I have been wading my way through the polyamorus culture, which I find beyond interesting, if not for me. I'm monogamous, because that's just the kind of person I am. When I have eyes for someone, my heart centers to them and them alone. But for some people, open relationships work. This comes in many different forms, but this blog (http://pervocracy.blogspot.com/) has a lot of basics, and is basically where I first began to realize these kind of relationships existed.
